Chronic pain can be incredibly uncomfortable and sap all your energy, making it difficult to complete everyday tasks. Pain medications can take the edge off the pain, but there’s a limit to how much you can take without risking addiction. It can be difficult to find other therapies that offer effective relief from your pain. Ketamine infusion is a new treatment option that can be used for chronic pain syndrome.
At Mountain View Headache and Spine Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, we provide effective treatment options to maximize our patient’s health and well-being. Highly respected pain specialist Dr. Ruchir Gupta has extensive experience finding the best treatments to relieve his patients’ discomfort and allow them to return to their everyday lives. He’s helped many people find relief from their chronic pain syndrome.
When you are injured, or something is wrong with your body, pain is a normal reaction that tells you that things are not right. Once you heal, the pain usually goes away. Chronic pain syndrome is a condition that causes lasting pain that lingers for many months or even years after its initial cause has gone away.
Chronic pain syndrome takes a toll on your physical and emotional health and is often accompanied by anxiety or depression. Effective treatments can be hard to find, but we help you get ones that work for you. We offer ketamine infusion as a treatment for chronic pain syndrome, which has helped many of our patients find relief.
If you have not found relief from other treatments and your chronic pain is negatively impacting your health and well-being, ketamine infusion therapy might be able to help you. A powerful prescription drug often used as an anesthetic in surgeries, ketamine can relieve chronic pain in lower doses.
Ketamine blocks pain receptors in your brain to decrease the discomfort you are experiencing. It works on different receptors from those targeted by powerful drugs such as narcotics and opioids, so it does not have the addictive qualities that those medications have.
We provide ketamine treatments using infusion therapy, which directly puts the pain-relieving medication into your bloodstream for the fastest relief. Dr. Gupta puts an intravenous (IV line) in your arm, allowing the solution to gradually enter your bloodstream, typically over an hour. Dr. Gupta develops a treatment plan for you that may recommend a series of infusions over several weeks for maximum relief. Unlike many other ketamine clinics, Dr. Gupta uses hospital-grade monitors to continuously monitor your heart rhythm because ketamine can have an effect on your heart. This allows maximum safety for you.
If you are experiencing chronic pain, ketamine infusion may be able to offer you the relief you seek, allowing you to return to your normal life and experience improved well-being.
