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.

Get to Know Calmare Therapy NJ Via Social Media

December 18, 2016

Calmare scrambler therapy is a newer alternative treatment to reduce or lessen several types of treatment-refacebook-iconsistant chronic pain. Since we introduced this drug-free pain solution at our healthcare clinic in 2011, we chose not to launch a flashy advertising campaign touting the merits of this pain treatment.

Believe us, it was tempting, if only for the fact that Calmare has no side effects, so viewers are not subjected to watching the drug company-type ads featuring people frolicking through the park, while the narrator describes all the frightening potential after-effects from taking the drug…

We took a decidedly different approach.

We invited our patients from around the world to describe their firsLinkedin_Iconthand accounts about what the Calmare Therapy experience was like for them, before, during and after the treatments.

Besides sharing these testimonials here on our website, we found the best way to reach other chronic pain sufferers was through social media.

A wrist surgery leads to reflex sympathetic dystrophy ( RSD) covering right side of body

July 2014:  Calmare Therapy NJ Case Study

RSD is a heartless disease. For many patients, it begins near an area of the body which has sustained an injury or surgery and, over time, can spread to other parts of the body. Kim Williamson from upstate New York can certainly relate:

Kim Williamson_FINALKim sustained a right wrist injury that required two surgeries on the top and bottom of her wrist. Her RSD began in her right shoulder but by the time she arrived here in New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy treatment, she was in a wheelchair. The RSD spread down the right side of her body into her leg. The pain from walking was so debilitating, she could no longer walk at all. If she was forced to use her leg, she would drag it behind her to avoid putting any pressure on it at all.

In addition to the chronic neuropathy, Kim has skin discoloration, allodynia, open sores on the upper right arm and difficulty sleeping.

“I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. I felt like I had lost my life and nothing was normal anymore,” Kim recalls. She was no longer able to work and relied on the standard protocol of RSD painkillers to get through the day.

Kim sees The Doctors” television program about Calmare scrambler therapy

Kim watched the June 2014 episode of the nationally syndicated television show, “The Doctors” which featured Calmare Therapy. “I liked that it wasn’t a painful treatment and didn’t have any side effects,” Kim explains. “I was determined to see if this could help me get even a little of my old life back.”

Kim said, in a best case scenario, she hoped that Calmare chronic pain treatment might help her to walk again and ideally lessen her pain by 80 percent.

Dr. Cooney weighs in on Kim’s case

“You never get used to seeing a Calmare patient arrive for treatment in a wheelchair,” Dr. Cooney says. “It lights a fire in me to help that patient defeat the RSD, CRPS or whatever disease has caused this person to become immobile.” Dr. Cooney, one of 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy in the U.S., will generally recommend a treatment protocol of 10 daily therapy treatments, lasting 30 to 60 minutes each.

“Although Kim’s case was severe, she responded very successfully to treatment. After three treatments, she was walking again,” Dr. Cooney recalls with a smile. After treatment number eight, Kim was pain-free and her physical symptoms were diminishing just as quickly. Dr. Cooney says he didn’t feel any further treatments were needed at that time because she was without pain and for a sustained period of time.

The whole office was elated to see Kim walk out the door and head back home very differently than when she arrived. She was kind enough to make a video testimonial for Calmare NJ which we’ll share with you soon.
