Ketamine for Chronic Pain

Traditional pain medications essentially dull your pain signals to help you lead a more fulfilling life. What makes ketamine infusion therapy different, however, is that it uses ketamine—a common anesthetic for humans and animals—to effectively reboot the neurotransmitters in your brain that are linked to pain.

Ketamine infusion therapy at Apex Ketamine Therapy is a safe, effective chronic pain relief treatment that uses low doses of ketamine to rewire the way your brain reacts to pain. Since ketamine disconnects the pain signals from the part of the brain that perceives pain, you may experience temporary pain relief during your infusion. Sometimes this relief persists for some time after the infusion. 

Results vary, and patients with chronic pain typically require more aggressive ketamine infusion therapy, so you and the team will work together to determine the right number of treatments for you. Call Apex Ketamine Therapy or schedule an appointment online to learn more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Ketamine is a synthetic medicine that has primarily been used as an anesthetic agent in humans and animals for over 50 years. It is one of the most commonly used anesthetic agents in the world, because of its unique properties that make it incredibly safe to administer. 

Ketamine binds to NMDA receptors, and creates a glutamate surge, releasing growth factors that help make new synaptic connections in your brain. This paves the way for healthier thought patterns and increases your resilience to chronic stress.

The literature for depression shows a 70% success rate. Individual clinics have seen higher rates, because they have seen increased efficacy with increased dosing.

The low doses used for depression are in the empathogenic "heart opening" psychedelic dose range. People report feelings of love, peace, compassion, forgiveness, and a touch of euphoria.

Ketamine will not be provided to individuals with schizophrenia, psychosis, or certain seizure disorders. Those taking aminophylline for asthma or COPD should not undergo ketamine infusions. If you have serious medical problems like uncontrolled high blood pressure, cardiac disease, or pulmonary problems, a clearance will be requested from your primary care physician before undergoing treatment.
