Ketamine Infusion Treatments
Ketamine infusion treatments provide life-changing relief for patients at Allied Pain & Spine Institute. If you are suffering from a chronic condition that is not responding well to other treatments, our specialist team can help. Ketamine has been used since the 1960s as a medicinal anesthetic. In recent decades, it has been discovered that ketamine infusion treatments can alleviate symptoms of pain and depression.
For some patients, ketamine infusion treatments are a suitable alternative to taking opioid medications. If you are concerned about addiction due to long-term use of these medications, ketamine infusion can provide relief without adverse impact on general health and well-being. Feelings of pain and despair are significantly reduced, allowing patients to live a more normal life with a chronic condition.

How ketamine infusion treatment works is not fully understood. However, pain relief is likely the result of changes in the neural receptors that process pain. An increase of neurotransmitters known as glutamates, which help create new neural pathways in the brain, contributes to pain relief. It is also thought that ketamine helps reduce inflammation, which is common in chronic pain conditions.
