Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment® uses a biophysical (using physical methods to treat biological problems) rather than a biochemical (drugs) approach.
The brain’s reaction to chronic pain can be compared to learning to play the piano or memorizing a poem − the more the body “practices” processing pain, the stronger the connections between pain nerves and the brain become.
The scrambler therapy device tells the brain to stop sending a pain signal
When someone is injured, the brain sets up a process to heal the injury. For example, cells carry away dead tissue or it increases blood flow to the area. Eventually, the brain realizes the injury has healed and it cuts off the pain message.
But for some, the brain never sends that pivotal message saying “there’s no more injury here so you can stop the pain signal.”
That’s where the scrambler device comes in. Using several small electrodes (think an EKG) carefully placed in the region of the injury, the technology sends a mild “no pain” message to the brain through the electrodes.
Essentially, the scrambler machine “overrides” the brain’s confused message and corrects it to the ‘no pain here” message.
As you can see from our patient having the treatment performed on her ankle, it is not painful.
In the majority of cases, by the end of the cycle, there is no more pain signal emanating from the brain. In many cases, pain is lessened for the patient as soon as the first treatment.
Scrambler therapy is ideal for treating these neuropathic conditions:
- Low back and neck pain
- Post-surgical pain
- Pain from chemotherapy treatment (CIPN)
- CRPS / RSD
- PHN (Shingles)
- Diabetic neuropathy
