Ketamine for CRPS – Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is categorized by higher-than-expected pain levels after an injury to an arm or leg. The condition has acute (short-term) and chronic (lasting longer than six months) forms. If you have suffered an injury and traditional pain management approaches are not providing relief, you may be experiencing CRPS.
Symptoms of CRPS include touch sensitivity, cold sensitivity, burning or throbbing in the affected limb, joint stiffness and inflammation around the injury. Although there is a natural expectation of pain after an injury, you should seek further diagnosis if you experience these symptoms. Allied Pain & Spine Institute can diagnose CRPS and offer effective treatment solutions in San Jose, California.
Benefits of Ketamine Infusion Treatment
Ketamine infusion treatment can address several of the common symptoms associated with CRPS. Reducing or eliminating pain, reducing inflammation and addressing neurologically driven pain are all benefits of this treatment option. If you have exhausted other treatment options such as opioid medications, turn to Allied Pain & Spine Institute for long-lasting relief.
We recommend ketamine infusion for the treatment of acute or chronic CRPS. Patients who are concerned about opioid tolerance or addiction may also opt for ketamine infusion as an alternative treatment path. If you have not yet received a diagnosis of CRPS, our team can also facilitate a comprehensive medical examination at our offices.
Once you have been diagnosed with CRPS, Allied Pain & Spine Institute can begin treatment right away. You will experience effective pain relief and may also benefit from improved mental health. Dealing with chronic pain can significantly impact your daily life, so do not delay in seeking the support you deserve.
