Feel Better Faster
According to a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, as much as 17% of adults will deal with chronic neuropathic pain.
Patients suffering from neuropathic pain often describe it as a shooting or burning sensation. It can be chronic, but it sometimes goes away in time. Typically, neuropathic pain results from nerve damage that changes the nerve function at the affected site.
Here at Ketamine Wellness Institute, we want to help if you suffer from these symptoms. There are treatments available to help you find relief and regain control over your life. Reach out today to learn more.
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.
Groundbreaking Innovations in Pain Treatment
Neuropathic pain symptoms can be difficult to cope with and affect your daily life, but treatment is possible.
Ketamine has been used as a trusted anesthetic and pain reliever for decades and is now a powerful treatment for chronic pain conditions.
By interacting with the NMDA receptor in the nervous system and other receptors, ketamine can impact the amounts of pain you experience.
Additionally, ketamine is known to help treat some of the other side effects associated with chronic pain like depression or fatigue.
