IV Ketamine infusion therapy is not the first line of treatment. We treat chronic pain that has failed all other treatment modalities. Patients that have IV ketamine infusions for mental health conditions must be referred by their current treating psychiatrist or mental health professional.
How Does it Work?
Ketamine acts as an inhibitor of the NMDA receptor (a pain receptor in the spinal cord) to interfere with pain transmission throughout the body. It disrupts the neurotransmitter (brain chemical) glutamate. Glutamate is involved with mood and pain recognition. IV Ketamine infusion is now used to treat symptoms of:
- Chronic Pain Conditions
- CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)
- Nerve Pain
- Neuropathic Pain
- Chronic Pain that has been unresponsive to all other treatments
- Mental Health Conditions
