Calmare in the Military
Calmare® Pain Therapy: Bringing U.S. Military-Grade Medical Treatment to Patients
In a recent training session for military healthcare personnel, the Calmare Therapy method of pain relief was highlighted as one of their most promising medical treatments. Using a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical philosophy, this approach treats chronic pain caused by a variety of factors including cancer, back pain, post-surgical pain, neuralgias, complex regional pain syndrome and more.
The specialized device, developed at a premier research facility, was adopted by the U.S. armed forces in 2011 as an alternative to surgery or addictive narcotics. The long-term success and minimal risk of this innovative treatment has fueled its spread and has made it an effective weapon against the “War on Pain”. As a result, the American military is one of the world’s largest providers of Calmare® Therapy; the device is offered at medical centers in every branch of service. Patients rely on Calmare® to treat a variety of chronic neuropathic pain conditions, particularly phantom limb syndrome, failed back surgery syndrome, post-herpetic neuralgia, brachial plexus neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome, and sciatic and lumbar pain.
Now, this biophysical treatment is available for non-military patients seeking relief from chronic pain. At Calmare Pain Relief Solutions, our doctors have undergone extensive training on its use. We can help patients overcome debilitating pain and regain control of their lives.
Calmare® Therapy works by sending a “no-pain” signal through strategically-placed electrodes on the patient’s skin. These signals override the native pain message, reducing the pain intensity and often offering immediate relief. For maximum benefit and long-term alleviation of symptoms, multiple treatment sessions are often recommended, depending on the cause and severity of the pain.
