Calmare Therapy: Treating Post-Chemo & Cancer Pain
How cancer warriors are finding relief from post-chemo and cancer pain through Calmare
By Terrin Parker
Cancer diagnostic tools and life-saving treatments are ever evolving, improving, and changing. Technology and research have made it possible to diagnose and treat almost any type of cancer out there. Lives are being lengthened as a result.
Though truly miraculous, these life-saving measures come with a price that only those who have undergone treatment can fully comprehend. Though their lives are being spared, many of them suffer from the after-effects of the very treatments that have prolonged their lives. They are now living with chronic pain.
Though cancer warriors are grateful for the extension of life, the reality is, many of them now live a life where chronic pain is a constant companion, usually caused by nerve damage due to the many chemotherapy and radiation treatments they received. What killed the “bad” cells, also damaged many “good” cells, including nerves. This nerve damage causes dysfunction and pain of the peripheral nerves and is called “neuropathy”.
Thankfully, many have found relief with Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment. Calmare is a non-invasive treatment that involves the placement of surface electrodes on areas of pain. A specific “no pain” signal is transmitted to the brain the very same way pain travels, giving the brain the ability to re-write the neurosignature and thereby change the brain and nerve system, with regard to pain.
Those who have experienced Calmare have found it to be very effective at relieving them of their chronic nerve pain. The neuropathy pain or other symptoms are reduced visit by visit, until maximum relief is achieved. “We are 90% effective in seeing significant reduction in symptoms of neuropathy with Calmare,” says Dr. Ward Wagner of Dixie Chiropractic.
Another benefit to Calmare is its method of administration. It is a biophysical, as opposed to biochemical, treatment, so there is no risk of further damage to the body’s tissues, and no chance of addiction, as there would be with pain med opioids. No one wants to regain their life only to lose it again to a drug addiction.
Calmare also works well for those who have pain caused by cancer itself. For these people, the day-to-day pain can be constant and unrelenting. Many struggle to find ways to relieve their daily pain without popping pills. Calmare offers a solution.
Those who are fighting cancer or who have won their battle want nothing more than to live a long, full, active life. They don’t want chronic pain to prevent them from experiencing all life has to offer. Calmare can give them this opportunity.
