Calmare Treatment of Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy Pain


Currently, one illness is a leading cause of mortality worldwide – cancer. However, with the latest advancements in modern technology and medicine, we have gained an access to more sophisticated diagnostic methods that allow detection of cancer at an early stage and, consequently, increasingly effective treatments and ever-increasing numbers of cancer survivors.

However, most of cancer patients and many cancer survivors, still struggle with the reduced quality of life as a direct consequence of cancer chemotherapy treatments. One of the major debilitating effects of chemotherapy treatment is peripheral neuropathy pain.
Chemotherapy contains drugs that are very effective in stopping of cancer progression and they are designed to target cancer cells. However, they are also affecting normal cells and body structures, and sometimes have devastating side effects – diarrhea, anemia, infections, vomiting, hair loss, fatigue, infertility, neurological changes and peripheral neuropathy pain.
Oftentimes, the side effects of chemotherapy are so adverse that they require cessation of the treatment altogether, therefore directly limiting the patient’s chance of survival.
When chemotherapy is a cause of peripheral neuropathy, it is then called CIPN, or chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy pain occurs when there is a damage to peripheral nerves, which are tasked with arms and legs movement control, carrying sensations, as well as bladder and bowel control.

What are the Symptoms of CIPN

Depending on the nerves that are affected, the symptoms can vary from tingling sensations, burning pain, severe and constant pain, disappearing and appearing pain, decreased sensitivity of limbs, increased sensitivity to temperature, touch or pressure, to weakness in muscles and many others.
These symptoms can manifest as soon as within hours (or days) following the chemotherapy, but their intensity may reduce with time. Typically, they occur within weeks or months following the treatment and are known to get worse after additional chemotherapy cycles.

Treating Peripheral Neuropathy Pain with Calmare Scrambler


Calmare Scrambler therapy has shown excellent results with CIPN patients, even in those who previously didn’t respond to other pain treatments. Scrambler therapy uses electrical impulses to send a “non-pain” signal together with the pain signal that the affected nerves originally send. By doing so, it doesn’t inhibit the pain transmission, but uses the same pathways to transform it into a ‘non pain’ information. Pain relief is achieved in more than 80% of cases, typically after 2-months follow-up treatments.

There have been numerous scientific reports on Calmare Scrambler therapy treatments and their reviews have shown that there were no harmful side-effects whatsoever, while substantial pain relief was noted in all.
Favorable effects of Calmare Scrambler Therapy in CIPN pain reduction allows for uninterrupted chemotherapy sessions, which are crucial for effectiveness of the cancer treatment. In cancer survivors, it allows for drastic improvement in quality of life, as it can completely or considerably reduce CIPN pain.
