“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.”

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).

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.

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

May 6, 2018

The Veteran’s Administration is now covering Calmare scrambler therapy treatments on its VA Fee Basis Program for any patient under the care of a VA physician, using the CPT code 0278T.

All four branches of the U.S. Military have been successfully using scrambler therapy since 2011 and have steadily increased the number of MC-5A devices at its hospitals, including the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

To obtain medically-covered treatment from a Calmare provider, the patient must obtain a referral for scrambler therapy from a VA-affiliated hospital.

“The U.S. Military was one of the first treatment centers to adopt Calmare to treat injured soldiers who did not respond to pain medication or traditional neuropathic pain treatment,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director of Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

“Clearly, for them to move add the Calmare CPT code to their list of covered services, they acknowledge the positive outcomes they have achieved.”

How the Calmare Device Reduces or Eliminates Neuropathic Pain

The FDA-cleared MC-5A scrambler therapy device was adopted by the U.S. Armed Forces in 2011 as an alternative to surgery or potentially addictive narcotics.

The technology works by sending a “no-pain” signal through strategically-placed electrodes on the patient’s skin.

These signals override the native pain message, reducing the pain intensity and often offering immediate relief.

For maximum benefit and long-term alleviation of symptoms, multiple treatment sessions are often recommended, depending on the cause and severity of the pain.

The long-term success achievements—at no added risk to the soldier–has made it an effective weapon against the “War on Pain.”

Today, the American military is one of the world’s largest providers of Calmare Therapy; the device is offered at medical centers in every branch of service.

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is one of the world’s foremost experts on using the device to treat severe chronic pain in children, teens, adults and seniors.

“Time and again, we have seen the Calmare device help people regain control of their lives and resume a healthy quality-of-life,” Dr. Cooney notes. “We have helped patients regain long-lost mobility after arriving at our clinic using wheelchairs, walkers or canes.”
