With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. The emotional toll of chronic pain also can make pain worse. Anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and fatigue interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body’s production of natural painkillers.
Because of the mind-body links associated with chronic pain, effective treatment requires addressing psychological as well as physical aspects of the condition. Ketamine Wellness Centers is the only clinic that treats pain symptoms as well as related psychological issues.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the muscles and tissues of the body, causing symptoms of aching and stiffness. Pain can range from moderate to severe, and can affect various parts of the body at various times. This pain can be debilitating and still is not completely understood by the medical community.
Ketamine Wellness Centers can successfully reduce patient’s chronic pain symptoms with low dose Ketamine infusions allowing the patient to progressively obtain relief from their symptoms. The effects can be dramatic allowing patients for the first time in years to re-engage in life activities they have missed out on for so long.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a chronic neurological syndrome characterized by:
- severe burning pain
- pathological changes in bone and skin
- excessive sweating
- tissue swelling
- extreme sensitivity to touch
Although this condition can be rare, once diagnosed treatment options have been limited with little to no relief. In the 1990’s physicians and researchers identified that Ketamine infusions were giving patients immediate and sustained relief after a series of infusions. Today there is finally hope for people with this severe and debilitating diagnosis.
