Ketamine Infusion Therapy For Pain Relief
Living with pain is no way to live. That’s why the medical staff at Georgia Ketamine have developed protocols for using small doses of Ketamine to help patients experience relief from their chronic pain. Imagine a life without pain. Now make it your reality.
We treat patients with a variety of pain issues- many of whom have experienced pain that has been resistant to other forms of treatment. Some of these issues include:
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Diabetic Neuralgia
- Poststroke Pain
- Neck Or Spinal Injury
- Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain
How Ketamine Helps Treat Pain
Low doses of Ketamine (compared to anesthesia) inhibit the NMDA receptors, which is responsible for central sensitization, and can work synergistically with many other analgesics. There are a number of scientific studies and clinical impressions supporting the use of IV infusions for the treatment of a variety of different types of pain. During recent years, it has become increasingly clear that long-term or escalating opioid use does not lead to improvement of function in every patient. Case studies of pain report that opioids actually increase pain in some patients as a consequence of injury or surgery, often associated with a modification of the pain character and an extension of the affected region that may persist for days, weeks, or even years.
