Calmare Therapy’s Longtime Friendship with Burning Nights CRPS

September 18, 2020

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director


We began using Calmare scrambler therapy to combat CRPS in 2011. It all came about by coincidence–

For those of you with medication and treatment-resistant chronic pain, you can appreciate the tremendous frustration when traditional drugs and other mainstream pain management efforts fail to relieve or reduce your pain.

“Where do I turn when the pain management community has no more options left to help me manage my pain?”

This frustration and fear, to be honest, led some CRPS sufferers to contact me about the viability of using Calmare Therapy to combat CRPS/ RSD pain–and the many physical symptoms which often accompany this disease.

After discussing each CRPS patient’s full medical history, analyzing their previous therapy efforts, reviewing past and present medications, and evaluating pain level fluctuations, I felt comfortable that we could proceed with caution and closely monitor results.

The risk to trying Calmare was minimal–the FDA-cleared pain therapy has no side effects, is painless to undergo and completely non-invasive.

The single risk is that the therapy will not work.

Meet Amanda from Indiana, one of our first RSD patients

After Amanda, then a teenager, and her family took a gamble on Calmare Therapy, Amanda’s pain relief was so significant, she was able to:

  • Return to in-person high school
  • Go on to college and graduate
  • Marry the love of her life

(Note that Amanda did return over the years for a few Calmare booster treatments, when her pain level began to climb. After the boosters, her pain level returned to a steady 0-3).

After sharing Amanda’s reduction in chronic pain on our website and YouTube channel, people from around the world, who were also battling CRPS, began to come to our clinic for treatment.

Connecting with the Burning Nights CRPS organization in the UK

We have been fortunate to be supported by Burning Nights CRPS, a UK-based resource for people and families dealing with CRPS.

They offer a remarkable wealth of resources for people around the world with the aim of “helping to improve the quality of life for every CRPS sufferer around the world.”

In 2017, we were fortunate to welcome the organization’s founder, also a CRPS warrior, Victoria Abbott-Fleming, to our clinic for a tour and a demonstration of scrambler therapy.

Victoria, seated, founder of Burning Nights, and her husband, left, visited our clinic for a wonderful visit. Dr. Cooney is also shown with Star, a CRPS patient from Alabama, and her husband.

Today, we continue to support each other’s efforts. In fact, Burning Nights features a detailed description of Calmare on its Alternative Therapies for CRPS page.

In addition to a wealth of support and resource information available, I have written several articles that offer my personal insight into the benefits of scrambler therapy:

CRPS warriors are never alone

With the advancement of organizations like Burning Nights CRPS, people who are battling this chronic condition with currently no cure, can always find guidance and advice from doctors, experts, fellow warriors and their families.

CRPS warrior, you are never alone.

For the time being, while we await relief from COVID-19, online support networks can also offer a kind listening ear, fresh ideas, or just a gentle virtual hug on a bad day.

If you would like to discuss if Calmare might be right for you, please call our clinic and I will be happy to speak with you personally.

As a reminder, people in the US are permitted to enter New Jersey for pre-scheduled medical treatment, even if they come from a Travel Advisory state. Learn more: https://calmaretherapynj.com/2020/08/17/calmare-nj-accept-patients-from-travel-advisory-states/ 

Due to fluctuating regulations, people from outside the US should consult with their home government for guidelines about traveling to the USA for medical treatment.

On Monday, we were honored to welcome Victoria Abbott-Fleming, the founder of Burning Nights – CRPS Support, a UK-headquartered CRPS advocacy and support organization for sufferers worldwide, and her husband Michael to our clinic.

We have been mutual supporters for years and I have written articles which were published on the Burning Nights website:

A Progress Update on Scrambler Therapy to Combat CRPS

Helping Children and Teens Battle CRPS with Calmare Therapy

Dr. Damon Orlando from Studio City, CA visited our clinic to shadow Dr. Cooney as he treated patients battling chronic pain using Calmare scrambler therapy. (July 2017)

Victoria, a CRPS sufferer herself since 2003, had a sample scrambler therapy treatment and we enjoyed a great talk.

One of our CRPS patients from Alabama was in town for  booster treatments. She was delighted to meet Victoria, whom she follows on social media.

We are committed to partnerships and building friendships with like-minded CRPS warriors, like Victoria, Dr. Tim from India,

A smiling Emily Blake is shown with Dr. Cooney and Dr. Timakkondu, visiting Calmare physician from Madurai, India. (October 2017)

(Dr. Kuppusami Timakkondu, also a Calmare provider) and other doctors who have visited the clinic to learn, train and share their expertise on drug-free pain management alternatives, like Calmare Therapy.

In conjunction with helping our patients from around the world, these alternative healthcare providers inspire me to do more, work harder and forge more powerful relationships that will ultimately benefit patient care.

Together, we will resolve neuropathy–without reliance on opioids or invasive procedures– and help return people in pain to the healthy and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve.
