Discover Scrambler Therapy
Scrambler therapy is an FDA cleared medical device used to treat a variety of chronic pain conditions. It is unlike any other treatment for chronic pain and works by scrambling the chronic pain message to the brain and replacing it with synthetic "no-pain" information delivered via surface electrodes on the skin. This can help relieve symptoms of pain and improve functionality.
Clinical studies have shown that the technology successfully reduces pain in more than 80 percent of treated patients without the adverse side effects commonly associated with drugs.
Patients can begin to notice pain relief as early as their first visit and this relief is sustained through an average of 10 consecutive treatment sessions.
Scrambler therapy is experienced by most patients as a non-invasive option to relieve chronic pain, even when other treatments have been unsuccessful.
If you are tired of struggling with pain, or just fed up with the cycle of medications, injections and surgeries, it may be time to try Scrambler Therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Calmare Scrambler Therapy work to relieve pain?
Scrambler therapy works to relieve neuropathic pain or pain derived from an injury, damage, disease or dysfunction of a nerve. During a treatment session, electrodes placed on the skin around the affected area, work to deliver"no-pain" information to the brain, replacing the pain information. The device delivers 16 different algorithms of low amperage (3.50-5.50 mA), which mimic normal nerve action potentials. Through consecutive treatments, the neural networks in the brain change their connections in response to the new "no-pain" information, in a principle known as neuroplasticity.
How many treatment sessions are required?
Every person responds differently but on average, most patients will require 10 one hour treatment sessions to achieve maximum treatment benefit. The number of sessions required to achieve relief may vary based on how severe your pain is and how long you have had the condition. We schedule consecutive treatment sessions 5 days a week, or until you have maintained maximum pain relief for 48 hours.
How long does pain relief last?
After the initial treatment period, pain relief lasts an average of several weeks to months. If pain returns after the initial treatment, a few booster sessions can help return you to a state of reduced pain. It is important to return for booster treatment sessions as soon as one notices their pain intensity/frequency/duration has increased in order to return to pain relief with the fewest sessions possible. If you wait until pain intensity/frequency/duration has returned to pre-treatment levels, it is likely you will need more treatments to be able to achieve relief.
How much does Calmare Scrambler Therapy cost?
Scrambler therapy sessions cost $300 per individual session and we ask that in order to secure your 10 consecutive visits you pay for the treatments upon scheduling. Sessions purchased but not used, may be saved and be used for booster treatments up to 1 year after the date of purchase.
Do you accept insurance?
All payments are due at or before the time of service. We do not bill directly to insurance, however we can give you the necessary paperwork required to submit a claim to your insurance provider for possible reimbursement. You can also use Reimbursify to help you submit your claim. You can check coverage of Scrambler therapy ie: transcutaneous electrical modulation pain reprocessing (CPT code 0278T) with your insurance prior to starting treatments.
Calmare therapy is in high demand and the appointment schedule is often fully booked. Because we carefully schedule treatment sessions throughout the day, it is imperative that patients let us know if they are unable to:
- Begin the 10-treatment regime on their scheduled day and time
- Keep a pre-scheduled appointment for any of their 10 treatments
We require patients to cancel their appointments for scrambler therapy at least 48 hours in advance. Failure to notify the office of a cancelled appointment within 48 hours may result in a charge.
We do understand that emergencies can arise, however please let us know you will need to cancel an appointment as soon as possible by calling 470-266-1380.
How do I prepare for treatments?
Before scheduling we will ask you a series of questions and have you complete new patient forms online to make sure you are a candidate for scrambler therapy.
Work in partnership with your prescribing doctors to wean off of medications that can interfere with treatment which can include certain anticonvulsants, ketamine, benzodiazepines, antidepressants, and marijuana/THC/CBD. It is strongly advised that you abstain form these medications at least 1 week prior to starting treatment. Here is a list of medications that may interfere with the effectiveness of this treatment.
DO NOT use any skin lotions 24-hours before or at any time during your treatment cycle.
Plan to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
If you are traveling from a long distance, make arrangements for flight and hotel reservations well in advance. Discuss transportation to/from the clinic with the hotel ahead of time and make sure they provide or can recommend a transportation service. You can also download the Uber or Lyft apps as an affordable option.
What should I bring to my treatment visits?
A favorite throw or blanket to keep you warm
We highly recommend you take the time in therapy to rest and relax. You can download an app like Insight Timer and use your treatment time to practice a guided meditation or relaxing nature sounds. You can bring reading materials and/or electronic devices with your preferred audio books, music or movies as well. We advise you not to watch the news, check work email or scroll through social media during treatment.
Loose fitting, casual, comfortable clothing allowing access to painful areas, including flip-flops, slippers, socks
Water bottle and snacks
A journal or your phone to record photos and details about your experience and keep track of how you feel each day as therapy goes on.
