MiCalmare stands for Michigan Calmare as well as My Calm
MiCalmare believes that enduring chronic pain is no way to live!
We have a nonmedicated, nonsurgical means of helping you manage your chronic pain with Calmare. Calmare provides calm to the nerves that are screaming to your brain “I’m in pain! I’m in pain!”, essentially calming those nerves so that your brain says “Ahhhh!” We are pleased to announce that we now have Calmare in Michigan! [Side Note: Some people may know this machine by the name of Scrambler Therapy – yes it is the same machine just called Calmare now!]
Calmare works best for these types of chronic pain conditions:
- Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) [which used to be called RSD]
- Neuropathy caused by diabetes or chemotherapy
- Phantom limb pain
- Failed back syndrome
How does this work exactly? Disposable electrodes are placed on the surface of the skin in a non-painful area but near the area of pain. A dial on the machine is turned sending a signal to that electrode. The person receiving treatment will feel a variety of sensations that ultimately lead to a tingling sensation. Once we have accomplished this great tingling sensation, the pain simply disappears or is greatly reduced. After multiple sessions, chronic pain can be completely eradicated!
Is this a TENS unit? NOOOOOO! TENS units have their place in helping certain types of pain, but TENS units are not an option for cancer patients. Calmare is NOT a TENS unit and helps with chronic nerve pain, AND can be used in patients who have had or currently have cancer without any side effects.
