Neuropathic pain is difficult to treat completely but is usually not life-threatening. Ketamine infusion therapy, an off-label treatment, has been helpful to providing symptom-relief for this type of pain syndrome.
Patients get the best results from combining ketamine treatments with support for emotional and mental well-being. Allowing one to manage pain levels improves the quality of life in addition to seeing a pain specialist using other treatment modalities as well.
