Ketamine Infusions for Neuropathic Pain
Understanding Ketamine Infusions
Ketamine infusions have emerged as a promising treatment for neuropathic pain—a condition characterized by malfunctioning or damaged nerves causing distressing and chronic pain. At Freedom Spine & Pain Center, with locations in Boerne, Kerrville, and San Antonio, we recognize the debilitating impact neuropathic pain can have on an individual’s quality of life.
Ketamine infusions are one of the innovative therapies we offer to address this specific type of pain.
How Ketamine Infusions Work
Ketamine, traditionally known as an anesthetic, is administered intravenously in controlled doses during these infusions. Its mechanism of action involves targeting the brain’s receptors, particularly those involved in transmitting pain signals. By blocking or modulating these signals, ketamine can provide significant relief to individuals experiencing neuropathic pain.
Benefits of Ketamine Infusions
Pain Relief: Ketamine infusions offer effective relief from neuropathic pain by interrupting the brain’s transmission of pain signals.
- Rapid Action: Patients may experience relief relatively quickly compared to other traditional pain treatments.
- Potential for Improved Functionality: Reduced pain can lead to enhanced mobility and improved overall functionality, contributing to an improved quality of life.
- Treatment for Resistant Pain: Ketamine infusions can be beneficial for individuals whose neuropathic pain has been resistant to other forms of treatment.
At Freedom Spine & Pain Center, we prioritize patient well-being and safety. Our medical professionals carefully assess each patient’s condition, medical history, and individual needs to determine if ketamine infusions are a suitable treatment option. We aim to provide a comfortable and monitored environment during the infusion process, ensuring safety and optimal therapeutic results.
While ketamine infusions can offer significant relief, they are often part of a comprehensive pain management approach. Our team integrates this therapy with other evidence-based treatments, including medications, physical therapy, interventional procedures, and lifestyle modifications, to optimize outcomes for our patients.
