Helping Fibromyalgia sufferers find pain relief with Calmare Therapy

March 15, 2012

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Rutherford Allied Medical Group

I have been treating people in pain for more than 30 years. Providing successful pain relief for fibromyalgia sufferers has been especially challenging because many, if not most, therapies are often unsuccessful. As a result, patients are ultimately dependent on pain medications for relief, which can introduce its own set of problems and ongoing expenses. The chronic nature of fibromyalgia symptoms interferes with job performance and attendance, personal relationships and ultimately dampens the overall quality of life. Women are ten times more likely to develop fibromyalgia.

Experiencing fibromyalgia pain relief firsthand

FDA-cleared Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment uses a drug-free, non-invasive, biophysical scrambler therapy to transmit a “no pain” message from the brain to the area in pain using electrodes similar to what you might use for an EKG. After administering Calmare for more than a year, we have experienced an average success rate of 89 percent treating advanced cases of fibromyalgia even when the patient is also suffering from reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). After years of research and testing, we selected this revolutionary therapy as a new, non-invasive solution for our own patients suffering with several types of treatment-resistant chronic pain.

But let me be clear─Calmare is not a “one-time-only” miracle cure. This FDA-cleared therapy is (typically) administered during a 10-treatment series lasting about 45 minutes to an hour for each session. However, booster treatments may be necessary months or years later, depending on the severity and length of time the patient has been in chronic pain.

The importance of your Calmare Therapy administrator

Should you choose to undergo Calmare Therapy for fibromyalgia or another type of chronic pain, a word of advise─make sure your therapy is performed by a doctor who has advanced expertise in understanding the musculoskeletal system and how pain is communicated between the brain and the receptors in the body. If your therapy is performed by someone with less expertise, your results may be diminished. Also, there are currently only seven providers in the U.S. who have been certified to perform Calmare Therapy, including myself.

If you’re a fibromyalgia sufferer, don’t give up the fight to find a cure for your pain. For inspiration, we invite you to watch a few videos of some of our patients whose lives have been changed because of Calmare Pain Therapy. I am always available to answer any questions or talk about your particular healthcare situation. Feel free to contact me anytime.

RSD advocate Joseph Aquilino’s quest to appear on Dr. Oz

Joseph Aquilino

As you know, we treat many patients living with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) with Calmare Therapy. Via Facebook, I was fortunate to meet Joseph Aquilino, “Joey Giggles,” a nationally recognized  advocate for RSD and other chronic diseases. He has lived with severe RSD since 2008 after a work-related accident. Nonetheless, he tirelessly speaks out about new treatment options and medical insurance challenges. Ultimately, he provides a supportive nationwide sounding board for people living with chronic disease and pain via his Blog Talk radio programs. To date, he has amassed tens of  thousands of friends and followers who support him via several social media outlets.

I’ve had the privilege of appearing monthly on his “RSD and You” radio program since late last year. He and his many supporters are on a quest to have Joey appear on the “Dr. Oz Show” to discuss life with RSD. He has started a petition which will eventually be submitted to program producers. We encourage you to take a moment and support his herculean effort http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/RSDanddroz .

Thank you and best regards,

Dr. Cooney

CIPN patient shares her experience with Calmare Therapy

February 15, 2012 – Amsterdam

A Letter from Nelia B (Condition: CIPN after Chemo Taxol Therapy)

For the past 2 1/2 years, I’ve been suffering from severe CIPN in my feet, after undergoing Taxol therapy for breast cancer. Three months after finishing the chemo, the neuropathy got much worse. Since then I’ve been on a high dose of pain medication (Gabapentin, Venlafaxine, Tramadol). Still my pain kept being at a level between 5 to 10. I also tried morphine patches, two painful and unsuccessful nerve blocks, cortisone injections, acupuncture, tens treatments and vitamin B12 shots. Nothing helped.

My doctors told me that my CIPN was chronic and not much else could be done about it. Meanwhile, I kept researching options and read about the clinical trials for CIPN with “Calmare Therapy” at the Massey Cancer Center, as well as at the University of Wisconsin (UW) Carbone Center. The doctors at both institutions told me that they experienced positive outcomes. I was also able to talk to a patient who underwent Calmare treatment, which was encouraging also. Then in the fall of 2011, I learned that the US Military opened several Calmare centers.

In December 2011, I decided to give it a try and contacted Dr. Cooney at the Rutherford Allied Medical Group in the United States. Afraid of being disappointed, I was a skeptical patient. But after the first treatment, my feet felt relaxed and I could sense a slight relief. Thereafter, I got better with every treatment and started cutting down the pain medication. After 10 treatments I was on 10% pain medication and the pain was at level 3 to 5. When I returned home the pain slightly increased, but then it stabilized. Although I am not pain free, I feel so much better.

The Calmare treatment has given me back some quality of live, I did not have in three years. I’ve much more energy, my head is clear–being on much less medication–and I feel hopeful! It’s great to be on the street and look down the block, knowing that I can actually walk there; it is even better that I can finally take my children to the playground. My family is very relieved seeing me feeling better.

I’m very grateful to have found the Rutherford Allied Medical Group in New Jersey. Thank you Dr. Cooney and Dr. Michel for the wonderful care!

If you suffer from CIPN, you absolutely should give it a try. Good luck!
