KETAMINE FOR CHRONIC PAIN
KETAMINE FOR CHRONIC PAIN
An effective treatment for CRPS, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain disorders.
Pain is the leading cause of physical disability in the world, but traditional pain management options—such as opiates and pharmacological solutions, physical therapy, and integrative or alternative techniques—tend to treat pain symptoms as they occur, rather than preventing the pain in the first place.
That’s where ketamine treatments come into play.
Ketamine alters and repairs neural pathways, essentially replacing damaged nerve pulses with new, healthy ones. Ketamine infusion therapy has been highly effective as a fibromyalgia treatment, for the treatment of CRPS, Lyme disease, migraine headaches, and other chronic pain conditions.
Researchers have found many positive trends in the way ketamine treats chronic pain. Using IV ketamine to treat both acute and chronic pain decreases opioid consumption and actually promotes recovery and rehabilitation in injured individuals. There are minimal side effects associated with the use of ketamine for chronic pain conditions, making it a very viable pain management option for emergency situations and chronic conditions.

Dealing with chronic pain is difficult for doctors and patients alike. For doctors, when dealing with conditions like fibromyalgia, CRPS, lipedema, and other chronic pain disorders, most treatment plans include the use of opioid painkillers. For patients, the risk of developing an unhealthy dependency on these drugs—amongst other concerns—is scary. But what if these opiate painkillers don’t even work? What are doctors supposed to do then?
Everyone experiences pain. Sometimes the pain is great, and sometimes the pain is minor. According to Pain News Network, pain is “a sensation that we experience both biologically and emotionally.” This means that pain starts as a result of physical interference—like a scraped knee, for example—but then also manifests itself emotionally, through mental health disorders such as depression and PTSD. Chronic pain, then, is the presence of both physical and emotional pain for extended periods of time.
