Frequently Asked Questions:
What Is Calmare Pain Relief Therapy?
Calmare Pain Therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive, non-narcotic method for rapid treatment of severe, chronic, high-intensity oncologic and neuropathic pain, including pain resistant to morphine and other drugs. In a typical 10-12 session treatment cycle using the Calmare Pain Therapy, pain is progressively reduced in intensity until it is gone. The pain relief is long term, though the Calmare Pain Therapy may be repeated as needed. No desensitization or adverse side effects have been recorded with the Calmare Pain Therapy.
Is Calmare Pain Therapy Safe?
Calmare Pain Therapy is a completely safe, non-invasive and painless treatment. Calmare Pain Therapy is absent of any known side effects and is both FDA and European Union CE approved.
What Is The Treatment Protocol?
10-12 consecutive treatments once a day for 10-12 days and booster treatments when needed.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Calmare Pain Therapy consists of 10-12 sessions, which are 30-45 minutes in length. Most patients experience a significant decrease in their pain after the first treatment. As every condition and every body’s pain is different, so are results although Calmare Pain Therapy patients report a significant and dramatic reduction in pain almost immediately.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
After an initial evaluation given by the doctor, the patient may relax comfortably and privately in a treatment room during the course of their treatment. The painless application of Calmare Pain Therapy is by means of single-use surface electrodes (similar to an EKG) applied to the skin area corresponding to the pain area(s) involved. Calmare Pain Therapy allows up to five pain areas in the same person to be treated simultaneously.
What Is The Longest recorded “Pain Free” Result Between Treatments?
One year (though the norm is usually 2-3 months before a booster treatment needed to maintain “pain free”status).
Is Calmare Pain Therapy Like a TENS Unit?
No. TENS units use high energy electrical impulses to block pain signals or distract the brain but when discontinued provide no lasting pain relief.
The Calmare MC-5A device creates a low energy electrical impulse that travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain. Over a series of treatments, the brain becomes “convinced” that the area of pain is normal and healthy and prolonged relief from pain may be sustained.
