Ketamine For Pain

Pain is a necessary physiological response to something that is harming the body. Whether it’s a sprained ankle, paper cut, or neurological pain conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), long-lasting pain is a problem for many. The medical community generally classifies chronic pain as a condition lasting longer than 3-6 months. Making it the most common reason for adults to seek medical attention. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 11%-40% of the adult population has some form of chronic pain. Therefore, finding solutions for suffering patients is paramount and the use of ketamine to treat these conditions is a modern and innovative use of the medication.

Treatments for Chronic Pain

There is a wide range of treatments used for chronic pain. These can include anti-inflammatory medications, anti-depressants, opioids, physical therapy, etc. Not all chronic pain can be treated in the same manner, and finding a solution often takes trial and error. In recent years, the opioid epidemic has been very prevalent and can possibly leave patients with a dangerous addiction. Ketamine therapy hopes to help this problem by offering an option that has effects that can last for longer periods of time.
