Ketamine is an anesthetic drug that’s been used in hospital operating rooms for many years. More recently, its benefits in treating chronic pain conditions and psychiatric disorders have come to light. Ketamine can be a highly effective treatment option for patients who have these types of conditions but find that standard treatment approaches fail to provide relief of their symptoms. Ketamine has additional advantages because it's not addictive like many prescription pain medications and causes minimal side effects.
The Ketaminology team uses IV ketamine infusions to treat conditions like fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), arthritis, and back pain, and psychiatric conditions including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
The Ketaminology team prepares the infusion to each patient's specific requirements, based on their condition, other health issues, and how well they responded to any previous ketamine therapy. The IV ketamine infusion might contain lidocaine or magnesium in addition to the ketamine, for added effect. Most patients obtain optimal benefit with a series of IV ketamine infusion treatments, which can achieve long-lasting results for the majority of people. At Ketaminology’s modern, welcoming facilities, the team ensures that patients can take advantage of the opportunity to relax and unwind during their treatment sessions.
