New Treatment for Chronic Pain in Chattanooga
Chronic neuropathic pain is often misunderstood by the public and many medical providers. Scenic City Neurotherapy and Ketamine Center offers a regimen specifically designed to fit the needs of patients who suffer from chronic neuropathic pain.
Unlike other anesthetics which puts the brain and the body to sleep, ketamine puts the brain to sleep without suppressing the body’s vital functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic which means it causes a disassociation between the thalamus, a structure in the brain responsible for relaying motor and sensory signals to the cerebral cortex, and the limbic system, a set of structures in the brain that deal with emotions, memory and the regulation of the autonomic or endocrine function in response to emotional stimuli.
Ketamine Therapy For Chronic Pain Management
To put it simply, the mild dissociation seen with low-dose ketamine infusion therapy causes an increased production and release of a protein in the brain which creates new, healthy neuronal connections. This “washing away” of all the neuronal connections that have been damaged by years of anxiety, pain, and depression is the reason why ketamine infusion therapy for chronic pain management in Chattanooga, TN, has such a high rate of success in treating chronic pain and mood disorders in patients across the country.
