Most chronic pain results from tissue injury and treatment is aimed at targeting the tissue involved and the nature of the injury. Think of it this way: the existing nerve endings are traumatized and irritated, and this results with the nerves constantly sending burning, searing pain signals directly to the brain. What Ketamine treatments do is to extinguish these ‘bad’ nerve pulses and begin to grow new pathways. These new, fresh nerve endings create new pathways to the brain. Since they do not have a history or ‘baggage’ of the old trauma, they only send healthy signals to the brain.
Ketamine infusion therapy has emerged as a treatment option for a variety of chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, small fiber neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and psychiatric conditions including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), suicidal ideation, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Amazing Reports and Studies: Ketamine IV Treatments
SWCA offers IV Ketamine Infusion treatment and patients are reporting amazing, miraculous results with only a few treatments.
A 2006 study in the American Journal of Therapeutics found that 85 percent of neuropathic pain patients who underwent outpatient ketamine infusion saw improvements in their conditions. Just over half of the study participants reported continued relief one month after discontinuing treatment. Ketamine has proven its effectiveness as an analgesic to treat non-responsive neuropathic pain.
Known more popularly for its abuse as a club drug, ketamine has been recognized and used for several decades as an anesthetic. It works to stop the transmission of pain by blocking N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Recent research has identified the hyperactivity of these receptors as a possible factor in generating neuropathic pain.
