Over the past year, patients from as far away as Amsterdam, Africa, and across the U.S. have traveled to New Jersey for this treatment to relieve back and neck pain, RSD, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, post surgical pain, cancer and chemotherapy-induced neuropathy.
“We sought out find a new solution for severe chronic pain to help our patients who did not respond to therapy or pain medications,” says Dr. Floyd Michel of Rutherford Allied Medical Group. Dr. Michel was surprised when patients began coming from around the country and outside the U.S. for Calmare Therapy.
“Several people in my online RSD support group started to rave about Calmare Therapy,” Laura Miller, a 24-year-old special education teacher says. “After enduring more than three years of unsuccessful therapies and debilitating pain pills, I knew I had to try it.” After eleven 45-minute treatments, Laura was able to walk barefoot and be pain-free for the first time since she was diagnosed with RSD and fibromyalgia in 2009. “I have my life back after so many years of living with pain every day.”
The Mayo Clinic, Massey Cancer Institute and University of Wisconsin are currently engaged in clinical trails of Calmare scrambler therapy. The U.S. Military began providing Calmare to treat wounded soldiers at its hospitals last year.
