Treating Chronic Pain with Ketamine

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is not the typical pain that follows and injury and naturally fades as it heals. While many cases do develop following an injury, many cases of chronic pain develop seemingly without cause. Chronic pain is ongoing, constant pain that, according to WebMD, can last a minimum of 3 months and in many cases far beyond 6 months. Beyond the pain you may feel on a daily basis, chronic pain can also have a negative impact on your mental health.

Other causes of Chronic Pain include arthritis, nerve damage, an infection, injuries, migraines, headaches, fibromyalgia, or numerous other factors. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with chronic pain and are unable to find proper relief through traditional treatments, contact New Horizon Clinics and see if ketamine treatment in Florida may be an option for you!

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine, an FDA approved drug for general anesthesia, has been shown in off-label trials to provide significant antidepressant benefits to patients utilizing Ketamine IV Therapy. This therapy uses doses lower than those used in anesthesia infused over 100 minutes to provide the potential for lasting improvement of pain symptoms.

 

How can Ketamine help Treat Pain?

The leading cause of physical disability in the world is pain, but traditional pain management options often treat pain symptoms as they occur, rather than preventing the pain in the first place. The most widely prescribed pain management options are opiates and other pharmacological solutions, physical therapy, and integrative or alternative techniques…but now there is another solution: ketamine treatment.

Ketamine repairs and alters neural pathways, replacing damaged nerve pulses with new, healthy ones. Ketamine infusion therapy has become widely accepted as a highly effective treatment for fibromyalgia, CRPS, Lyme disease, migraine headaches, and other chronic pain conditions.

The research has found many positive trends in the way ketamine treats chronic pain. IV ketamine treatment, used to treat both acute and chronic pain, decreases opioid consumption and has been shown to promote recovery and rehabilitation in injured individuals. What’s more, there are minimal side effects associated with the use of ketamine for chronic pain conditions, making it a viable pain management option for emergency situations and chronic conditions alike.

If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic pain and looking for an alternative treatment, contact an experienced ketamine doctor in Florida today.
