Ketamine for Chronic Pain

Finding New Hope

Chronic pain takes many forms and can include fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), migraines and more. Two-thirds of patients find significant sustained pain relief through ketamine infusions.

Pain Relief with Ketamine

Ketamine works by blocking specific pain receptors in your brain. At the same time, it resets some of the nerve cells in your brain and spine. The result is significant pain relief that can last up to six months post-infusion.

Let us help manage and diminish your pain without the use of addictive and less effective narcotics. Contact us now for your consultation.

Ketamine for Substance Abuse Disorders

Supporting Recovery

Ketamine infusions are a promising method for treating addiction and substance abuse disorders.

Kicking the Addiction

Substance abuse creates new pathways in the brain that cause cravings. Ketamine works by rapidly building new neural pathways that effectively bypass those addiction pathways. The new connections are useful in maintaining sobriety and living a life free from addiction. To discuss how ketamine can help you overcome addiction, contact us for a consultation.
