Ketamine Therapy For Chronic Pain
How Can Ketamine Help With Chronic Pain Management?
Ketamine was first developed and approved by the FDA as an anesthetic, but it has been used as a medicine to treat pain for decades. Ketamine is what some doctors are calling the biggest breakthrough in depression and the treatment of pain in decades. When infused at a low dose into the bloodstream, research indicates that Ketamine may be up to 80% effective at treating the symptoms of chronic pain and depression.
Beat The Pain WIth Ketamine
Pain is, unfortunately, an unavoidable part of life. In most cases, pain is a sign that something is wrong, and it can sometimes be the only symptom that lets you know that you need to seek medical attention.
When you have an injury, pain sensors are triggered that send messages through your nerves to let your brain know that you are hurt. In most cases, the pain will go away once the cause of the problem is resolved, such as when a cut heals on your finger. Short-term pains are also typically easy to manage with common remedies that lower inflammation and promote healing such as ice on a sprained ankle.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC PAIN?
Chronic pain can affect your emotional well being, temperament and mood, and even your personal relationships over time. Oftentimes, you will develop other symptoms in addition to the pain. Symptoms may include:
- Trouble sleeping
- Feelings of guilt
- Loss of interest in hobbies or sex
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Marital or familial conflict
- Suicidal ideation
Unfortunately, some people suffering from chronic pain grow dependent on their medication and will need to take more and more each time to feel relief.
WHAT CAUSES CHRONIC PAIN?
The medical community is still unsure about the exact causes of chronic pain or CRPS, but research indicates it can be triggered by an injury or conditions such as the following:
- Arthritis/joint problems
- Muscle strains/sprains
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Lyme disease
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Acid Reflux
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
what are the treatment options for chronic pain?
There are quite a few options out there for treatment of your chronic pain. There are traditional oral medications and topical therapies. Oral medications might include anti-inflammatory drugs, opioids, or acetaminophen (Tylenol). Topical medications like ointments or creams are applied to the skin, usually directly on top of the area affected by pain. Some of these medications can be bought over the counter (OTC), but others may require you to get a prescription from a healthcare professional.
There are also many helpful things you can do to relieve chronic pain without taking medication. Exercise, especially with the direction of a physical therapist, can greatly reduce your pain. Acupuncture and Transcutaneous Electro-Nerve Stimulator (TENS) units can stimulate the area affected by chronic pain and may be helpful in reducing symptoms.
An innovative new treatment, Ketamine Infusion for chronic pain management is helping people find relief in the form of injections. IV Ketamine Infusions are also an exciting new treatment option for those suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).
