It's estimated 100 million Americans live with chronic pain.

With all the concern about opioids, non-drug treatments are growing in popularity, including the Calmare device.


For a local woman, it's providing the relief she's been looking for.

Between arthritis and sciatic pain, Cyndie Powell had tried a number of pain treatments with little success. Then she met Laura Brown who suggested Calmare.

Like other pain treatments, electrical impulse is used with Calmare but it's not like the older TENS treatments you may be familiar with.

Learn more about how the two treatments differ by watching the video of Benita Zahn's story.
