Ketamine Treatment

Depression / Anxiety / PTSD / OCD

Ketamine works differently than any other traditional medications. Imaging studies have suggested that ketamine may work by literally repairing the neural pathways of the brain. This allows for electrical and neurotransmitters to flow more smoothly in the brain circuits, leading to an increase in the brain’s functional capacity and decrease in symptoms. This helps explain why patients that undergo ketamine infusion therapy experience positive effects that last for weeks and months, long after ketamine has been flushed from their systems.

Parkinson’s Disease

In the United States alone, more than 1.5 million people suffer from Parkinson’s disease, a debilitating disorder with no cure. Parkinson’s affects neurons in the substantia nigra portion of the brain and, as these neurons begin to die, dopamine production decreases over time, which results in a person’s inability to normally moderate their movements. Over the past decade, only five new drugs have been FDA approved for the management of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease, but features significant drawbacks, including the major side effect of Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) and a loss of effectiveness over time.

Implementation of this low-dose ketamine infusion would help:

  • Reduce and prevent dyskinesia associated with levodopa therapy for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
  • Treat pain and depression associated with Parkinson’s disease while treating Levodopa-induced dyskinesia.
  • Allow clinicians to maintain higher doses of levodopa over longer periods of time, improving the health and wellbeing of patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Chronic Pain

About 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Low-dose sub-anesthetic ketamine is used to treat various chronic pain syndromes, especially those with a neuropathic component, and a single intravenous infusion has been shown to lead to long-term analgesic effects lasting several months. Ketamine may also alleviate pain-associated depression and the adverse effects associated with opioid treatment, and may thus represent an attractive adjunct therapy for pain management.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Intravenous ketamine blocks receptors in the brain that are responsible for releasing chemicals that cause inflammation of the nervous system. Ketamine treatment can eliminate the fibromyalgia pain and give you back a quality of life and increased energy to do things you haven’t done in years.

Migraine Headache

An estimated 12 percent of the U.S. population suffers from migraines – recurring attacks of throbbing or pulsing moderate to severe pain. A subset of these patients, along with those who suffer from other types of headaches, do not respond to treatment. Recent studies have shown that ketamine infusion treatment may help alleviate migraine pain in patients who have not been helped by other treatments.
