- Recommendation from Johns Hopkins Pain Management Specialist
Dr. Michael J. Cooney, a chiropractic physician from Rutherford Allied Medical Group in New Jersey, has been conducting numerous researches with his team, focused on finding an appropriate drug-free therapy that could be used to help patients suffering from treatment-resistant chronic pain.
The main criteria for the therapy was FDA clearance and absolutely no side effects in patients.
Calmare scrambler therapy emerged as a winner, being a brand-new technology and providing long lasting pain relief without any side effects to patients suffering from debilitating pain conditions.
Calmare scrambler therapy proved to minimize or completely eliminate chronic neuropathy symptoms in numerous patients suffering from a range of painful conditions some of which were chronic back pain, failed back surgery, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, and chemotherapy-induced pain.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Pain Case Study
One of the case studies on Calmare scrambler therapy follows Amy Horwitz, a patient who suffered from a failed neck surgery and consequential severe chronic neck pain. Her pain was so severe that it rendered her bedridden and immobilized -- turning her life upside down. She became dependent on a walker or cane to be able to move, if at all. During that time, Amy’s husband had to quit his job to be available to care for her.
Amy was in excruciating pain from her head to her toes, so she had been visiting a number of medical specialists, including a neurosurgeon and an orthopedist, who classified her pain as psychogenic and prescribed her muscle relaxants, antidepressants and some strong narcotics, known to cause addiction among other side-effects.
Having been a pharmacy technician herself, Amy was aware of the range of negative side effects these narcotics could cause, some of which she had experienced herself. Amy thus continued searching for a solution that would provide her pain relief, without exposing her to risks from pain medications. After significant amount of time spent on the Internet and researching various pain conditions and their symptoms, Amy and her husband narrowed down the list of possible causes to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). Their self-diagnosis was later confirmed at Johns Hopkins’ Blaustein Pain Treatment Center, by a RSD specialist. After learning of her search for a drug-free treatment, a doctor recommended Calmare scrambler therapy – an emerging new technology that transforms the brain’s pain signal into a non-pain one. Scrambler therapy uses a biophysical approach to pain management, as opposed to a biochemical one. It is completely safe, non-invasive and delivers a non-pain message directly to the nerve via electrodes placed on the patient’s skin.
Before her treatment with Calmare scrambler therapy, Amy’s pain was a 10 out of 10 on the pain scale. Her pain dropped to a 2 out of 10 after nine sessions over the course of nine days.
Although she was not completely pain-free, Amy’s quality of life increased drastically. She is no longer tied to her bed and is able to move completely on her own. She is optimistic towards the future and eager to try on a number of activities that she could have only dreamed about before the treatment with Calmare.
In addition to RSD and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Calmare scrambler therapy successfully treats the following conditions: back pain, sciatica, post-surgical neuropathic pain, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, phantom limb syndrome, postherpetic neuralgia, intractable cancer pain, brachial plexus pain, fibromyalgia, post-surgical nerve lesion neuropathy, trigeminal neuralgia, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), diabetic neuropathy, and pudendal neuropathy.
