Scrambler Therapy

Scrambler Therapy sends a 'no-pain' message. The message is sent to the nerve via electrodes applied to the skin in the region of the pain. The feeling of pain is cancelled when the no-pain message replaces the pain message, by using the same pathway.

Most insurance companies do cover this therapy. Please call your insurance provider to verify your own coverage.

Currently, we are only accepting MUSC patients for this therapy. To receive the therapy, have your doctor place a doctor’s order in EPIC.

For more information and Frequently Asked Questions, call 843-792-9300 or please see the Calmare Website.

Please be advised:

Due to the popularity of our clinic, we currently have approximately one to two weeks call back for screening/scheduling and a three to six months wait time for an appointment. We apologize for the inconvenience.
