Using CAMS energy-based healing devices in clinical practice


Using CAMS energy-based healing devices in clinical practice

 CAMS treatments are quick and painless 

  • The CAMS unit never touches the patient.
  • Patient disrobing is not necessary.
  • Treatments take 10 seconds to two minutes, depending on which of the four CAMS models you choose.
  • Longer treatments can be administered:

“Sometimes, longer treatments are needed for serious problems such as cancer pain,” explains Charles Crosby, DO, MD(H). “In these cases, I recommend that you call me to discuss your CAMS treatment plan.” Email Dr. Crosby or call him at 407.823.9502.


Are CAMS treatments billable?

  • TensCam/RJV Jr and RJV-TensCam treatments are billable under CPT code 97032.
  • Please refer to the latest CPT billing code book for currently accepted codes for the Handheld Laser.
  • Personal Tuner treatments are not billable.
  • CAMS treatments are covered by most personal injury insurance plans.


Who is using CAMS?
Clinical practices in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand rely on CAMS as a well-tolerated, effective treatment modality with no reported side-effects. Patients who are needle-phobic or are allergic to pain medications are especially good candidates for CAMS, as treatments are non-invasive and painless.

Every day, nearly 20,000 CAMS treatments are administered by:

  • MDs and Osteopathic Physicians
  • Dentists
  • Chiropractors
  • Naturopaths
  • Physical therapists
  • Pain clinics
  • Massage therapists
  • Other clinicians who wish improvement in quality of life

And clinicians aren’t merely using CAMS on their patients; they’re also using it to treat themselves and their families.

“In over 50 years of practice, the TensCam is the most valuable piece of equipment that I have ever had. Also, for personal health problems, both my wife and I have used it extensively with positive results.”

—William Halcomb, DO
Mesa, Arizona

How are treatment areas located?

Sometimes the area to be treated by CAMS is immediately evident—for example, in patients with a recent injury, low-back pain or migraines. In other cases, it is necessary to use manual or electronic means to identify the area causing the pain. Several effective diagnostic methods include:

  • Applied kinesiology. This form of diagnosis uses muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. Applied kinesiology is based on the theory that every organ dysfunction is accompanied by a specific muscle weakness; thus, diseases can be diagnosed through muscle-testing procedures. For more information on applied kinesiology, visit
  • Manual thermal evaluation. This physical examination method uses the hands’ sensitivity to temperature changes to identify dysfunction in the body. For a comprehensive guide, see Manual Thermal Evaluation  by Jean-Pierre Barral, DO.
  • Diagnostic ultrasound. Clinicians are using ultrasound not only to diagnose areas of physical dysfunction, but to observe the effects of CAMS devices as the patient is being treated.



“With ultrasound images of injured or inflamed areas on a monitor, we can watch in real time the reduction and resorption of extracellular fluids and shrinkage of [scar] tissue. The first time we observed this, the very experienced and competent technician’s jaw dropped and he said, ‘That just doesn’t happen!’ CAMS bridges the gap between science and medicine. Good work, Dr. Crosby!”

—Charles Schwengel, DO, MD (H)

Interference fields can be a hidden source of pain

“Interference fields are disturbances or areas of anticoherence in the body’s bioenergy field,” says Dr. Crosby. “They are caused by trauma, either physical or emotional. Interference fields eventually affect the physical body, manifesting in a wide variety of symptoms such as pain, inflammation, fatigue, anxiety, digestive problems, depression and many diseases and other conditions.”

An interference field in an internal or external scar or in the teeth, for example, may cause chronic pain in other parts of the body.

Chapter 6 of Dr. Crosby’s new book, Beyond Pills, Knives & Needles: Relieve Pain & Inflammation with 21st Century Quantum-Based Technology discusses interference fields and how to identify them.

For in-depth information on interference fields, read Neural Therapy: Applied Neurophysiology and Other Topics by Canadian physician Robert F. Kidd, MD, CM. Visit Dr. Kidd’s web site at for details and to subscribe to his free e-newsletter, Neural Therapy in Practice.
