Post surgical hand pain sufferer finds relief after seven long years

When Cecilia Carney had her arthritic hand operated on in 2004, she had no idea the long term pain she would endure after surgery, particularly after she took a bad fall, pushing her thumb back into her wrist. In all, she spent seven years researching and experimenting with a variety of medications and therapies to relive the post-surgical pain in her hand. “The pain was unending, 24/7–and excruciating,” explains Cecilia. “One day during a break at work, I read about Calmare® Pain Therapy in the Bergen Record. After thinking about it for a few days, I called Dr. Cooney. At my first appointment, my pain level was at 9/10 on a 10-point scale.”

Cecilia said she felt at ease in the office from the start. “Dr. Cooney explained that not every chronic pain condition can be treated with Calmare, but believed my pain could be greatly alleviated.  He even offered me a treatment–right on the spot.” Ten daily treatments later, Cecilia is a changed woman. “I hadn’t slept through the night in years and gave up doing so many things I enjoyed because I just didn’t have the strength with all the pain.”

Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment uses a biophysical (using physical methods to treat biological problems) rather than a biochemical (drugs) approach. The FDA-cleared device relieves pain directly at the pain site by small electrodes, through which a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of 30 – 45 minutes, on average. Regardless of severity, many pain symptoms have been proven to be significantly reduced or alleviated during the treatment series process and there are no side effects.

Today, Cecilia continues to work full-time and sees her life in a new light. “Before Calmare, I was reliant on pain medications like Percocet and Tramadol to fight the constant pain. But now, I’ve said goodbye to those drugs–for good.”

Calmare Pain Therapy Helping Chronic Pain Sufferers

The past few weeks have been particularly exciting here at Rutherford Allied Medical Group. We have been treating several patients with a variety of chronic pain conditions using Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment.

These patients are dealing with chronic pain for different reasons─Cecilia had been experiencing post surgical hand pain for the past six years and living with a pain level as high as 9/10 out of 10; Melissa has Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and Leonida has been suffering from post surgical neck and arm pain for 10 long years. Another patient was no longer able to prepare meals for her family, one of her favorite things to do.

These patients painstakingly researched Calmare Therapy at the recommendation of their family or pain management physicians. Several commented that the FDA’s clearance of the therapy made them feel more confidant about trying it. Melissa tried just about every other chronic pain remedy available for her RSD and was pleased to learn Calmare had no side effects which would add to her existing pain.

 We are happy to report patients have been so delighted with the results of this therapy they have volunteered to share their personal stories on a Calmare video we are now completing. Their results were achieved after 30-45-minute daily Calmare treatments for just one week. We believe actual patients sharing their experiences speaks in the truest voice possible about this treatment option for patients who are tired of pain medication and want to live life to the fullest again.

 As always, please feel free to contact us at (201) 933-4440 to talk with any of our doctors about your chronic pain condition. If we determine Calmare may be an appropriate therapy for you, we will meet with you in person to talk further and try Calmare Therapy, at no cost.

 Wishing you a pain-free day,

Dr. Michael Cooney
