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.

Opioid addiction has increased by over 500% in the last seven years—there is hardly an American who doesn’t know someone who is addicted, who has been directly affected by opiate addiction, or who is addicted himself. In response to this epidemic, the CDC has enacted changes to the way doctors may administer and prescribe opiates. This has left many chronic pain patients frustrated and in fear of losing access to the medications that keep them functional.
In an exciting development, Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine published the first set of guidelines for the use of ketamine for treating pain—a framework for doctors and institutions, who should get it, and who should not. Ketamine infusions have emerged as a leading option for the treatment of both chronic and acute pain. Some chronic pain patients report a reduction in pain symptoms for up to six months post-infusion. The World Health Organization lists ketamine as an essential medicine, primarily for its analgesic qualities.
From CRPS to Lyme disease, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and more, ketamine infusions have proven to be one of the most effective chronic pain management options. For many of our patients who receive ketamine infusions for the treatment of CRPS and other chronic pain conditions, these infusions have been life-changing. After receiving ketamine infusions, many patients find their pain levels manageable enough that they can return to a more active and fulfilling lifestyle. And isn’t that the goal?
