Rutherford medical group offers pain therapy without medication.

Feb 22, 2011 (The Record - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Rutherford Allied Medical Group now offers Calmare pain therapy treatment, a non-invasive technology to treat patients suffering from acute and chronic high-intensity pain.

The pain treatment facility, comprised of board-certified doctors and chiropractic specialists who care for patients using biophysics rather than medication, is one of the first in the state to offer this treatment.

"Calmare offers medication-free pain relief for a wide spectrum of pain sufferers with no side effects," said Dr. Michael J. Cooney, one of the group's doctors.

"It truly represents a new age for people living with pain neuropathy." Calmare scrambler therapy works by applying external electric stimulation directly to the pain site, which manipulates the signal flow of the central nervous system. The low-dose electricity scrambles pain messages to the brain, replacing those that cue pain with non-pain signals.

The stimulation is transmitted through electrodes, similar to those used for an EKG, an electrocardiogram. Therapy is performed for a minimum of 10 daily sessions, usually between 30 and 45 minutes, and multiple pain sites may be treated simultaneously.

Calmare therapy has been used on 3,000 patients and shown to treat chronic neuropathic and oncologic pain resulting from cancer, phantom limb syndrome, failed back surgery, sciatica, spinal stenosis, shingles and other illnesses.

Rutherford Allied is on Union Avenue in Rutherford. For more information, call (201) 933-4440 or visit
