Calmare Therapy: Overcoming Chronic Pain Side Effects

August 26, 2019

The video you are about to see below was filmed by Megan in her New Jersey hotel room during her stay at Calmare Therapy NJ USA in July 2019.

She filmed her ‘before and after’ Calmare scrambler therapy treatments on her own accord and was not paid or influenced by our pain management team to do so.

Background on Megan’s Long-Term Battle with CRPS

Megan came to Calmare Therapy NJ USA from Australia in 2016 after being severely debilitated by neuropathic pain symptoms as a result of a five-year battle with medication and treatment-resistant neuropathy.

“When I arrived in New Jersey, I was in a wheelchair, unable to walk, stand or sit unsupported. My speech was affected and I had a bad stutter and slur when attempted.

My cognitive function deteriorated until I could no longer follow even a basic conversation or have an understanding of what was going on around me,” Megan wrote after her therapy.

“I had a constant tremor throughout my body and violent twitches which resemble seizures. I was in constant pain in my joints and having burning headaches at the base of my skull and back of my head that would incapacitate me further.

I was unable to do any regular daily activities such as showering, dressing, food preparation etc.”

Megan’s family discovered Dr. Michael Cooney’s use of Calmare Therapy to overcome chronic pain and they made the Herculean trip from Australia to New Jersey USA to try the treatments.

Eleven Scrambler Therapy Treatments Later (2016)

“I started feeling some of the benefits of the Calmare treatment after the first week. My pain was steadily decreasing, my ability to walk short distances was improving, my cognitive function was increasing, I only had one headache in the whole two weeks I was in New Jersey and it was more easily relieved than ever before.”

14 Months After Scrambler Therapy

August 2017 | Australia

“I just wanted to share the news that I’m finally back on road at work as a Paramedic here in Australia! I wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for your help and support and the magical Calmare, and I wanted to say Thank You.

You really did save my life as I was in a very dark place before coming to the USA. I don’t think I would have been able to keep pushing through each day if I hadn’t had the amazing level of improvement I gained from your therapy.

You all also gave my mother and I a level of emotional support we had never received before, and we will always be thankful for that too. It has still been a long and frustrating battle to get me back to a level of normality, but it’s been worth it. My family has finally been able to relax; my parents even went on a holiday! And I can finally start being in my 20’s instead of my 80’s! 😀”

Three Years After Calmare Therapy

In mid-2018, Megan’s chronic pain began to steadily increase again. When the pain threatened her neurological skills and her mobility was regressing, she took the 24-hour trek from Australia to undergo 10 Calmare treatments again.

The first 3-4 treatments did not result in any marked improvement, as you’ll see on the video Megan made from her hotel room.

Undeterred, Dr. Michael Cooney persisted.

With Megan’s tenacity in full swing, treatment number 5 resulted in a pain level decrease.

Every treatment thereafter resulted in marked improvement in Megan’s speech, finger extension and reduction in leg spasms.

Thank you, Megan, for candidly sharing your ‘before and after’ Calmare treatments. We are most grateful for your generosity.

Dr. Cooney Uses Calmare Scrambler Therapy Exclusively at NJ Clinic

January 29, 2019

A few years ago, Calmare clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney explained in National Pain Report why he added little-known scrambler therapy to his pain management practice in NJ.

“My biggest frustration is when our tried-and-true pain therapies do not result in a successful outcome for our patient.

As a result, these patients are forced to undergo more invasive procedures, such as surgically implanted spinal cord stimulators (SCS) or powerful narcotics, (even Ketamine), where pain reduction outcomes have been uneven and come with significant side effects.

What happens to these patients for whom traditional pain treatments and medications simply don’t work?”

One by one, patients battling treatment-resistant neuropathy, from Bergen County, NJ to Australia and South America, came to Rutherford for scrambler therapy performed by Dr. Cooney.

And many of the patient outcomes were life-changing.

Four years later, Dr. Cooney has discontinued use of all other pain management therapies and treats patients using Calmare exclusively.

Dr. Cooney Announces He Will Provide Calmare Therapy Exclusively at his NJ Pain Clinic

If traditional pain management procedures and medications have left you still battling chronic nerve pain, we invite you to reach out to us and speak directly with Dr. Cooney about your medical condition.

If the doctor feels scrambler therapy has a low probability of helping your condition, he will not advise you to come for treatment.

Reach out to us at (201) 933-4440, email us about your case at info@calmaretherapynj.com or complete the Phone Consultation Request form below and we’ll be in touch with you within 48 hours.

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Expands Again

September 10, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney Clinical Director

Calmare Certified Provider

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I’ve been in the pain management field since Gerald Ford was president. Over the course of my career, I’ve seen countless pain management therapies and pain medications come and go.

During all of those years, I’ve never seen patient outcomes come anywhere close to what we have achieved with Calmare scrambler therapy.

Calmare NJ USA Patient Testimonials on YouTube

Since we introduced “the scrambler” in 2011, we have watched children, teens, adults and seniors’ lives transformed by its uncanny ability to reduce or eliminate chronic pain (neuropathy).

We have been able to help people who had already tried all the drugs, the invasive therapies, the painful procedures and the failed surgeries, without success.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think people in pain would travel to us for treatment from Australia, South Africa, South America, Europe and Canada.

Over 25% of Americans with Chronic Pain Affected by High Impact Chronic Pain (MD Magazine)

After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to close our physical therapy and chiropractic practice to free up my time to help more people fighting chronic pain as a result of:

* Surgery
* Cancer treatment (CIPN)
* Shingles (PHN)
* CRPS
* Fibromyalgia
* Diabetic neuropathy
* Other nerve pain conditions

Don’t get me wrong–scrambler therapy doesn’t work wonders for everyone, unfortunately. It is not a miracle treatment and you’ll never hear me say that it is.

But in the majority of people I have treated,
the pain reduction results have been life-changing.

So starting today, we will be able to help more people, provide quicker service and offer a broader range of appointments.

If you’re ready to try a newer way to fight pain, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s to winning the war on pain, one patient at a time.

Your Calmare Post-Treatment Protocol

February 2, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Congratulations!  You have completed your Calmare Therapy treatment protocol.

Now that you have less pain, or are pain-free, your quality of life is about to improve dramatically.

Due to you improved mobility and decrease in pain level, many Calmare patients feel like they are ready to climb Mount Everest.

But doing too much too soon can actually hamper and potentially jeopardize your positive outcome.

Therefore, I’ve outlined some instructions for patients (healthcare providers can contact directly for more detailed clinical guidelines) to ensure you recover optimally, and enjoy the benefits of Calmare Therapy for as long as possible.

Every patient’s medical history is unique and we welcome your individual questions about any of the recommendations cited below:

No Vigorous Exercise or Clinical Physical Therapy for Two Weeks after Treatment

Your body is in the midst of recalibrating itself since your Calmare treatments.

When you begin to exercise, be prepared for soreness associated with new this activity (a positive sign you have awakened muscles which had not been used before!)

During recovery, if an injury occurs, use ice to reduce swelling and inflammation.

To treat muscle soreness, use heat. In both cold and hot treatment, administer 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for a period of one hour.

Don’t Overdo

While it is thrilling to feel less pain and be more mobile, muscles need time to adjust to renewed use. Be careful and cautious and don’t do too much too soon. If you feel tired or any pain, stop what you are doing and rest.

Additional Sleep

Your body needs to re-adjust to several physiological changes after treatment. More than likely, it has also been a long time since you have slept well.

You may need to sleep several more hours than usual for the next several weeks. This is normal.

Welcoming a Good Night’s Sleep After Calmare Therapy

Make an Appointment with Your Pain Management, Specialist or Family Physician

It’s important to discuss your successful treatment outcome with your doctor. It is likely that your medications, particularly for pain, may be lessened or eliminated completely.

Discuss how your lessened or eliminated pain will affect your holistic health and ask for guidelines going forward.

Improve Your Nutrition

Now that you are feeling better and moving more, you should see an improvement in your appetite. Take advantage of feeling better and fuel your recovering body with high-quality foods– fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and protein (white before red).

Hydrate with at least 6 – 8 tall glasses of water daily.

Finally, for patients who treated beginning in 2018, your BrainSpan™ report will arrive soon after you have returned home. Based upon your blood work, the report will detail any diagnosed vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Speak with your primary care doctor about ways to increase your consumption, either through pills or the foods you eat regularly.

Journal How You Feel

We hope you will chronicle how you feel after Calmare Therapy. Keep a record of the new activities you are able to engage in and record how you feel during and after the activity.

We hope this treatment is life-altering for you. Therefore, chart your progress and celebrate your success!

If You Feel Pain

Depending on your medical condition and the length of time you have experienced it, pain may return (to a lesser degree).

Pay careful attention to any physical or emotional issues that may have contributed to this.

If pain continues for five continuous days, Calmare booster treatments (generally 1 – 3 treatments) may be necessary. Please call the office for further instructions.

Scientists ID Brain Mechanism and Possible Fix for Chronic Pain

July 11, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I read an exciting article in ARS Technica, Scientists come up with neural mechanism—and possible fix—for chronic pain which certainly spoke to me and our Calmare team since researchers at the New York University School of Medicine determined that chronic pain may, in fact, be all in your head.

Their study confirmed and explained why the Calmare device is able to produce very significant chronic pain relief even to patients who have previously undergone medication and other therapeutic efforts.

Nerve damage can confuse the brain’s pain signals

Scientists identified and confirmed that a circuit in the central pain-processing region of the brain causes hyperactive pain signals. It seems the nerve damage deactivates the somatostatin (SOM) interneurons whose responsibility is to diminish pain-firing signals.

By alternating the SOM, we can reduce or eliminate the pain messaging.

We believe this study is a breakthrough and explains why Calmare scrambler therapy is successful, when medications and other more invasive treatments fail.

The application of the 16 distinct algorithms from the Calmare MC-5A device in activating sequences stimulates the brain by sending a “no-pain here” signal and thereby “calming” (Calmare means ‘calming’ in Italian) the interneurons which are hyperactive.

Calmare convinces the brain to stop sending pain signals

Calmare has been effective treating several types of neuropathic (chronic) pain; this type of comprehensive study may be the long-awaited first step in explaining the reason for it.

Could Calmare Be the Solution to Your Treatment-Resistant Neuropathy?

I am proud to be one of only six Calmare-Certified providers in the U.S. I have successfully treated (you will never undergo a treatment performed by any other staff member) hundreds of patients since we introduced this revolutionary, FDA-cleared pain relief device in 2011.

If you have undergone medication and other neuropathic pain therapies, but are still in significant pain, we would be happy to speak with you about your chronic nerve pain.

Pain News Network Features Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy

February 16, 2017

pain-news-network

Calmare Therapy NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney contributed The 411 on Calmare Scrambler Therapy” to Pain News Network. The bylined article describes his clinical experience administering this newer therapy to help patients lessen or eliminate several types of diagnosed neuropathy, particularly CRPS / RSD, PHN, diabetic nerve pain, post-surgical pain and chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).

Dr. Cooney also discusses the merits of alternative medicine as a solution for treatment-resistant patients battling severe chronic pain.

Pain News Networkreaching more than 100,000 unique readers each month, is a non-profit, independent news source for information and commentary about chronic pain and pain management. The publication’s mission is to raise awareness about chronic pain and connect and educate pain sufferers, caregivers, healthcare providers and the public about the pain experience.

“I’ve followed this publication for some time and believed their readers would be open to learning more about Calmare Therapy, particularly the fact that it is drug-free, painless and has no side effects,” says Dr. Cooney.

Article Introduction:

“Personally and professionally, my biggest frustration is when our therapies do not achieve a Calmare leads on back 2_2014successful patient outcome.

Often, “treatment-resistant” patients are forced to seek out more invasive procedures – surgeries, spinal cord stimulators, or powerful narcotics such as ketamine − where success has been uneven, but side effects can be significant.

I wasn’t comfortable recommending these “next level” neuropathic pain treatments for my patients. So my partner Dr. Robert Kelly and I spent two years looking for a non-invasive therapy that didn’t cause pain or come with added side effects.”

November 14, 2016

mayo clinicAs we’ve reported before, the Mayo Clinic, one of the world’s most respected medical research institutions,  has performed a number of clinical trials using scrambler therapy for chronic pain reduction.

In the 11.11.16  issue of their patient-targeted newsletter published last Friday, Mayo Clinic Health Newsletter, the institution published a lengthy overview about scrambler therapy and its significant pain reduction merits for people with a range of medication and treatment-resistant neuropathies.
