While every illness is challenging in its own unique way, those ‘invisible’ and difficult to diagnose ones bring along an additional set of hurdles. You may suffer not only from the illness but also from the inability of others to recognize it and provide you with proper care from the very beginning.
What is Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is one such invisible illness – a chronic pain disorder, affecting millions of people each year, the vast majority of them – women. This condition is difficult to bear, both emotionally and physically. It is characterized by widespread, chronic pain in muscles, most of the time accompanied by a wide range of other debilitating issues, such as insomnia, depression, general fatigue, and more. With so many aches troubling your system, it might start to slow down to the point where it cannot perform even the lightest of functions.
To make matters worse, being a very complex and complicated condition, fibromyalgia is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed and some professionals even questioned the legitimacy of classifying fibromyalgia as an actual disorder.
Can Fibromyalgia be treated with Calmare Scrambler Therapy
However, FMS is very much real and is currently affecting 2-4% of the adult population in the U.S. With medication outcomes often rarely producing satisfactory results, sufferers of this condition, predominantly female, turn to alternative treatments, one of which is Calmare Scrambler therapy.
Calmare scrambler is an FDA-cleared device. It uses a non-invasive, drug-free, biophysical scrambler therapy to transmit a ‘no pain’ message to the brain, resulting in pain relief in the affected area. Thus, the approach of Calmare scrambler therapy is not to inhibit the pain transmission, but to use the same pathways to transform it into ‘non-pain’ information.
This method showed a success rate of an astounding 80% success rate in treating patients with chronic pain, including those with fibromyalgia.
These patients showed a considerable decrease in pain level, sustained after each treatment for an increased period of time, some even reaching 0/10 on the pain scale after the treatment.
Calmare Therapy Procedure
A typical scrambler therapy protocol consists of 10-12 treatments, lasting about 45 minutes. It is adjusted on a patient to patient basis, according to their individual responses, and may include up to 15 treatments. If the pain returns in the future, follow-up treatment in a timely manner is highly recommended. During or after the therapy, patients experience no discomfort or pain, in nearly all the cases.
