Living with chronic pain, you know just how debilitating it can be. The pain can make it challenging to go about your day-to-day life, and it can often feel like there is no relief in sight. You may have tried various treatments, but nothing has seemed to work. If this sounds like your situation, you may consider IV infusions. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of ketamine treatment for chronic pain and how it could help you get your life back!
IV Therapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain. A study published in the Journal of Pain found that ketamine significantly reduced pain in patients with chronic pain disorders. Another study published in the journal Anaesthesia, found that ketamine was an effective pain reliever for patients with both acute and chronic pain. IV infusions have been found to reduce pain by interacting with a chemical receptor in the nervous system known as NMDA (N-methyl D -aspartate). When this therapy is delivered, it blocks transmission and stops interpreting peripheral stimulation as painful.
IV infusions are a safe and effective way to treat chronic pain. A trained medical professional administers the infusions, which are typically well-tolerated by patients. Very few side effects are associated with IV Infusions, and most are mild and temporary. Ketamine does have a sedative effect that typically dissipates quickly. Our team monitors your progress to ensure that your pain is adequately managed.
