Hope is Possible with Ketamine Wellness Institute
According to the CDC, approximately 50 million adults in the US are affected by chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a condition that consists of persistent pain that is caused by inflammation or damaged nerves. It can lead to long-term health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and trouble sleeping. This condition can make everyday tasks increasingly difficult, making it hard to hold down a job if the pain is severe enough.
Ketamine Wellness Institute understands how debilitating this condition can be. We want to help you regain control of your life and make everyday tasks easy once more. Reach out today to learn about the doors IV ketamine therapy can open for you.
The Science Behind IV Ketamine
Ketamine has been used worldwide for decades both as a safe anesthetic and rapid pain reliever. Research in the last two decades indicates that ketamine, administered safely via a series of infusions, may relieve the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions within hours. This is compared to the weeks or months oral antidepressants may take before relief is felt.
Researchers are still looking to determine the exact method of action with IV ketamine infusions. One theory proposes that it stimulates the regrowth of synapses – effectively “rewiring” the brain.
Another promising avenue of research into its effects indicates that it acts on glutamate, an important neurotransmitter that affects how synapses change and learn. This is called neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change and learn. This could explain ketamine’s strong effect on mood and pain disorders.

Chronic pain can be debilitating, and many people want relief fast. Luckily, IV ketamine therapy can do what traditional treatments fail to do – offer quick relief to those with treatment-resistant conditions.
Ketamine works by alleviating the symptoms of chronic pain. “It combats pain by acting against a specific chemical receptor known as N-methyl-D-aspartate, or NMDA, which is found in the nervous system and, in part, modulates pain” – Sunali Wadehra, MD.
