Chronic pain affects more than 100 million adults in the United States and of that, 20 million adults suffer from chronic pain that interferes with their daily activities according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The psychological impact of suffering can be heartbreaking for both the patient and their loved ones. Some of the more common Chronic Pain Syndromes include:
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
- Neuropathic Pain
- Nerve Pain
- Chronic Pain that has been unresponsive to all other treatments
Patients typically receive a series of 8-10 infusions over a two-week period for chronic pain. You will be in the office for 1.5 to 4 hours as the dosage is increased with each treatment. Clinical trials have shown a 75% – 80% success rate with this approach. IV ketamine treatment does require booster infusions to keep patient’s symptom-free. Booster infusions are typically done once a month and up to once every 3 – 6 months if needed after the completion of your initial treatment series.
We understand that it can be difficult to make time for so many appointments in the first two weeks, however this protocol offers the highest success rate.
The fee for each infusion may be an out-of-pocket expense and not covered by insurance.
