Lauren Writes Letter of Thanks for Her Husband’s Calmare Therapy

May 29, 2018

Robert Vaughn adds his pin to the Calmare NJ USA patient map. May 2018

We were honored to receive this email message from Lauren Vaughn at the conclusion of her husband’s two-week Calmare protocol for CRPS (diagnosed in 2013). The couple generously permitted us to share it below.

“As we approach our last day with you, I wanted to send my sincere thank you!

It has been such a positive experience for my husband and myself! We have seen so much progress!

To see Robert live with 8 or 9 out of a scale of 10 pain level for the past 5+ years has been difficult, to say the least!

You have given us hope for the future!

Within the past two weeks we have observed his pain level decrease to a 3 out of 10! Unbelievable!

Not only is the treatment amazing, but Dr. Cooney and the staff have been such a joy to work with!

From the bottom of our hearts we will be forever grateful!

Thank you for giving our family hope again! Thank you again for your amazing partnership in Robert’s treatment and recovery.”

Quality of life is a gift that few can give and you have certainly given us that back!

“VA Turns to Alternative Pain Treatments Amid Opioid Crisis”

May 17, 2018

“Pain is rampant among veterans. Nearly 60 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are afflicted by chronic pain, as are more than 50 percent of older veterans. Many have returned home with battlefield injuries, but even more suffer back ailments, nerve damage, headaches, and other forms of severe pain that come with age and inadequate treatment.”

Boston Globe

The U.S. Air Force offers Calmare Therapy to airmen suffering from chronic nerve pain.

Since Calmare scrambler therapy was introduced in the United States, the Veteran’s Administration was one of the first healthcare organizations to purchase MC-5A devices and try the drug-free therapy to lessen several types of chronic pain.

Today, Calmare is offered at several VA hospitals worldwide and is also a covered treatment, enabling veterans to obtain scrambler therapy at any provider, including Calmare Therapy NJ USA, (with a referral from a VA-affiliated doctor).

U.S. Veterans are Covered for Calmare Pain Therapy with Referral

This week, the Boston Globe published a terrific article highlighting that the VA is aggressively adopting alternative medicine alternatives to battle pain instead of opioids.

While we were disappointed not to see Calmare featured (CPT Code 0278T), we were pleased to see recognition of the VA’s effort to treat neuropathy without opioids.

“Nerve Scrambler Therapy Lessens Pain for Warfighters”

West Virginia Woman Battles CRPS after Carpel Tunnel Surgery

October 17, 2017

On Friday, Tonya Shuler completed her final Calmare treatment and prepared to head home to West Virginia, pain-free. A personal trainer, she was diagnosed with CRPS a year ago, after undergoing carpel tunnel surgery.

The majority of her chronic 9/10-level pain was in her arm and hand.

Before coming to New Jersey, the married mother of three adult children had been prescribed several different painkillers including:

  • Gabapentin
  • OxyCondone
  • Cymbalta

None of these drugs offered any significant pain relief and she was also uncomfortable using opioids for an extended period of time.

Eventually, she also tried nerve blocks and injections, which were also ineffective.

Like so many other living with chronic nerve pain she and her family felt like they were out of options. And Tonya’s pain range began to spread.

Tonya heard about Calmare Therapy, an FDA-cleared, painless alternative therapy for neuropathic pain on a CRPS support group website. Since it had no side effects, she and her family decided to try it.

She began scrambler therapy treatment on October 2 and finished Friday, October 13.

“Tonya arrived with a pain level near a 10/10,” Dr. Cooney explains. “But after her final session this morning, she is leaving us pain-free and is off all pain medications.”

Where Do You Turn When Traditional Treatments and Painkillers Don’t Work?

Dr. Cooney says patients often suffer for years before seeking out opioid-free alternative therapy for neuropathic chronic pain.

“The healthcare industry usually prescribes prescription painkillers as the first treatment for chronic pain,” he says. “But in many cases, these drugs don’t reduce pain and become less effective the longer they are used.”

One of six Certified Calmare providers in the U.S., Dr. Cooney introduced scrambler therapy to his practice in 2011 to help his treatment-resident patients battling chronic pain. Today, he treats patients from around the world, including Australia, South America, Israel, Canada and Europe.

To learn more, call our patient and friendly Calmare team at (201) 933-4440 or email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com. International patients may set up a phone-in consultation with Dr. Cooney by confirming a date/time in advance.
