A Better Therapy to Treat Nerve Damage after Chemotherapy (CIPN)

September 13, 2018

Calmare for cancer painChemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy or CIPN is caused by the heavy metals in the these medications which strive to eradicate cancer cells, but may also cause significant nerve damage in the process.

The after-effects of this neuropathy can significantly diminish the patient’s quality of life, even after the cancer is gone.

A combination of studies has found that more than 50 percent of chemo patients suffer from CIPN, a tremendously painful condition that is famously difficult to treat with traditional medication, most commonly Cymbalta, Lyrica, or Gabapentin, and standard pain management strategies.

It can also reduce the quality of life due to chronic tingling and numbness in the hands and feet.  Mobility and other essential activities of daily living can become impossible.

That’s why the news from several studies, including the University of Wisconsin, the Massey Cancer Institute, and the Mayo Clinic are so important.

These centers’ studies have confirmed that Calmare’s scrambler therapy is producing significantly positive results in minimizing or even eliminating pain from chemotherapy treatment.

“The FDA cleared the Calmare MC-5A device specifically to treat patients

with neuropathy as a result of chemotherapy,” says Dr. Michael Cooney.

“We have treated patients with CIPN since 2011 and have seen

dramatically positive outcomes firsthand.”

These findings, reported by top U.S. cancer centers, serve as a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel of pain for our friends, family and colleagues living with the painful after-effects of chemotherapy treatment.

We welcome you to contact us to learn more about using scrambler therapy as a non-invasive, painless treatment for nerve pain after cancer treatment.

Also important, the treatments have no side effects.

Charles Osgood reports on Mayo Clinic Calmare Trial

TheOsgoodFileThe highly regarded journalist Charles Osgood, author of the  long-running Osgood File, reported on a new clinical trial at Mayo Clinic featuring a woman who battled cancer with chemotherapy. Unfortunately, the treatment left her with a severe chronic pain condition called chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (chronic pain) or CIPN.

The patient, Karen, had pain that was so severe she could barely walk.

She heard about a new treatment for chronic pain called scrambler therapy being offered at the Mayo Clinic and signed up. Once cleared for the trial, Karen began daily Calmare treatments, which are pain-free and have no side effects.

During the interview with Osgood, Karen reported that  Calmare started working after the very first treatment. After four treatments, the pain she had endured for more than a decade was gone.

“It wasosgood so incredible that I hadn’t felt pain-free for so many years that I guess I didn’t expect it to last,” Karen says during the interview.

More than a year after her treatment, she continues to be pain-free.

Treatment for Chemotherapy Pain – Calmare Therapy Making News

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney

It is one of the great frustrations of healthcare–pain.  And, often, those who suffer the most live every moment of every day in pain. This could not be more true for cancer patients who have endured chemotherapy in order to eradicate the cancer from their bodies. Often, the chemo is successful and the patient’s cancer is in remission. But these “soldiers against cancer” are often left with a weakened, damaged body as a result of the powerful after-affects of the drugs.

This condition, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, called CIPN, has no real cure. There are pain killing drugs (more drugs) of course, along with a few alterative therapies can help alleviate some of the pain. But there is no cure for CIPN.

That’s why the news from several studies underway, including the University of Wisconsin, as well as the Mayo Clinic (3/4 way through this video, Dr. Charles Loprinzi discusses the scrambler therapy study which they have in progress now 11.2011)  are so important. These centers’ studies are finding that Calmare’s scrambler therapy is producing significantly positive results in minimizing or even eliminating pain from chemotherapy treatment. These findings, starting to filter in from our country’s most respected cancer centers, serve as a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel of pain for our friends, family and colleagues living with the painful after-effects of chemotherapy treatment.
