How Does Ketamine Help Treat Chronic Pain?

Ketamine Infusion Therapy is a viable, and many times better, treatment option for managing the symptoms of chronic pain due to ketamine’s analgesic properties. It combats pain by acting against a specific chemical receptor known as N-methyl-D-aspartate, or NMDA, which is found in the nervous system and helps modulate how the brain perceives pain. The low-dose ketamine causes an increased production and release of a protein in the brain, identifying and removing the nerve synapses for pain while also creating new, healthy neuronal connections. It is much like resetting or rebooting a computer that has just crashed on you. Getting relief from chronic pain and discomfort is the primary goal of this treatment.

Is Ketamine Right for You?

Typically, the patients we treat who are experiencing chronic pain have not had much success with other pain medications or treatments. Conditions treated might include, but are not limited to:

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a broad term describing excessive and prolonged pain due to inflammation that follows an injury or surgery.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy can better treat chronic pain that would otherwise require large doses of narcotics or other painkillers. While these medications can help to relieve symptoms in the short term, they are not without their side effects. Unlike opioids, which make a patient more sensitive to pain over time, Ketamine Infusion Therapy helps reduce the pain and rolls back the hypersensitivity caused by opioid therapy.
