Calmare - Who It's For
The Calmare device is a U.S. FDA 510(k) cleared and European CE mark-certified pain therapy medical device for the non-invasive treatment of neuropathic and oncologic pain. This treatment has no side-effects and does not involve the use of drugs.
Calmare is gentle electrical stimulation which scrambles the message to the brain sending a "no-pain" signal. This no-pain signal becomes the dominant signal received.
This treatment is for pain caused by a neuropathic reason. It has been successful in treating many conditions including, but not limited to:
- Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN)
- Post-surgical neuropathic pain
- Phantom limb syndrome
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Brachial radiculopathy
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy/ Chronic regional pain syndrome/Causalgia
- Postherpetic neuralgia
A clear medical diagnosis is required from your neurologist or pain management physician in order to receive Calmare Therapy. Certain medications must be weaned prior to starting this treatment. If remaining on pain medication during therapy, a third session consultation with your physician will be necessary to titre these medications.
