Ketamine Infusion Therapy Can Help With Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury, chronic pain is very different. Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, such as a back sprain, or there may be an ongoing cause, such as illness.
Like any long-term health problem, the condition often leads to complications beyond your physical symptoms, such as new or worsened depression, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Chronic pain can make it more difficult to keep up at work, manage tasks at home and attend social gatherings, leading to problems in your relationships and financial instability. Some research suggests that the more severe your pain, the more serious these problems.
Chronic Pain involves a complex interaction between specialized nerves, your spinal cord and your brain. Imagine a complicated traffic system, with wires, a computer, and sensors. We need to determine where the issue lies, and that Ketamine infusion therapy might help to restore and create new neuronal (nerve) connections, a concept called neuroplasticity.
Ketamine has been found to relieve the symptoms of Chronic Pain in some cases within a couple of days, rather than the usual weeks most medications can take. We invite you to give us a call today or request a free consultation with our Registered Nurse to learn more about this exciting new treatment.
Pain infusions last approximately four to five hours, and the cost is $350/hour.
