A Solution to Chronic Nerve Pain
By Ward Wagner
The somatosensory nervous system is remarkable. With a complex system of nerve cells and pathways, it allows us to perceive and enjoy the subtle softness of a rose petal, the tide pulling sand through our toes as it ebbs, the warmth of a holiday hearth on a winter’s night, or a loved ones embrace after a rough day. Our sense of touch keeps us connected to the wonders of the world we live in. It also serves as a warning and protective system by alerting us to dangers through the sensation of discomfort or pain. This is a good thing because it can prevent tissue damage and injury to the body. However, when the nerves become damaged due to disease or injury, the pain present can be chronic and debilitating. This is called “neuropathic pain” and can cause feelings of stabbing pain, electric shock, burning or cold sensations, “pins and needles,” numbness, and itching. It can be a result of multiple sclerosis, diabetes, herpes zoster infection (shingles), HIV-related neuropathies, nutritional deficiencies, toxins, cancer or post cancer treatments, immune disorders, and physical trauma or surgery.
With opioid addiction and abuse on the rise, many are seeking drug-free solutions to their chronic pain problems. Much research has been done to find effective alternatives to pills in pain treatment, and physicians are finding that Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment offers long-term pain relief without debilitating side effects or the possibility of addiction or abuse. Because Calmare uses a biophysical rather than biochemical approach, there are no risks or side effects to worry about. It works by replacing the chronic “pain” message in the nerve to one of “no-pain” through an electrode which is placed on the surface of the skin. There are no needles or medications involved, and regardless of pain intensity, a patient’s pain can be completely removed for immediate relief.
The protocol for Calmare is 15 treatments over a 3-week period. Though some patients have found relief in fewer sessions, we have found that this number of treatments has proven to keep the pain away for the longest possible time frame. Patients have an average duration of pain relief of one to three months following treatment, with some patients reporting pain relief up to a year. For patients suffering from nerve pain where tissue damage has been stabilized, the symptoms completely resolve for good.
Here are some testimonials from our patients who have experienced first-hand what Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment can do:
About two months ago I began having a searing pain in my jaw and was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia. I was put on a seizure medication, which made me dysfunctional. The side effects were so intense. I thought I wasn’t going to be “me” anymore and that I would lose my job. I thought it was over for me. I met with a neurologist who told me I would be on this medication for the rest of my life, which really frightened me. I tried Calmare, and within one week, I’m back to “me.” My pain level has decreased tremendously. I have my life back. I’m back at work and driving again after less than a week.
I’ve had RSD (complex regional pain syndrome) for about five and half years. I’ve tried everything from nerve blocks to spinal stimulators. Calmare helped with the burning and pain. It calms everything down, and helps me feel like I can breathe again. I can’t tell you how much I’ve appreciated this machine—it’s been a lifesaver for me. I don’t take any more drugs, and I have a sense of freedom. I no longer feel constantly “drugged up.”
In 1999, I had my neck fused. The hardware came apart, causing me lots of pain. In 2004, they fused another level and puts rods, screws, and wires in my neck. I was always in pain. I heard about Calmare and decided to give it a try. After the third visit, I noticed a big difference. The pain has gone down about 75%. The Calmare treatment has really helped, and now I only take half of [the medication] I usually do. It feels good to not have a horrible headache every day.
