Neuropathic & Chronic Pain
About 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain, defined as pain that lasts longer than six months, can be moderate or excruciating, episodic or continuous, inconvenient or totally incapacitating. 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 one of the few clinics in the U.S. that treats pain symptoms as well as related psychological issues.
Think of utilizing ketamine therapy vs. pain medications as the difference between getting well vs. getting by.
Research has shown that low-dose Ketamine Infusion Therapy has a profoundly beneficial effect on the central nervous system by giving your neurotransmitters a reboot. Traditional medicine’s answer to neuro-pathic pain is to dull the signals with pain medications, which come prescribed with serious and long-term side effects, and do little to attack the root of the problem.
