Ketamine Infusions: New Help for Relieving Chronic Pain

Ketamine Infusions: New Help for Relieving Chronic Pain

Arthritis, spine injuries, and fibromyalgia are just a few problems that can lead to intense, chronic pain. When pain has become a part of your daily life, it can be difficult to find a treatment that allows you to pursue your goals and avoid addiction. Ketamine is becoming a breakthrough treatment for chronic pain, and it might be exactly what you’re looking for. 

At Ketaesthetic in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, our team of pain management specialists provides groundbreaking treatment in a comfortable and discreet outpatient setting so you can find relief from chronic pain. 

The benefits of ketamine

Without proper pain management, life with chronic pain can quickly become overwhelming. Powering through only leaves you drained at the end of the day, leading to depression and anxiety over time. 

However, traditional pain relievers have their own downsides. Taking large or prolonged amounts of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can cause stomach ulcers, while prescription painkillers can put you at risk of dependency. Many people also dislike how opioids make them feel or are concerned about the risk of addiction, leading them to seek out alternative solutions. 

At Ketasethetic, our team offers ketamine infusions for chronic pain. Ketamine is commonly known as a tranquilizer, but when used in low doses, it can also be used as a pain reliever, anti-depressant, or anxiolytic (anti-anxiety medication). 

What to expect from treatment 

Ketamine therapy is highly individualized. Before your treatment, our team takes special care to understand your circumstances and pain level. This helps our specialists determine how much you need for pain management and how long your infusions should last. 

Your treatment takes place in the Ketaesthetic office where our staff monitor you to make sure you’re comfortable. The infusion experience is very tranquil, and most people drift off and sit peacefully until the session is finished. 

Some patients need multiple sessions, but you can expect a difference after your first infusion. Along with the pain relief, you might feel happier, lighter, and more confident. Before your treatment, our team debriefs about any potential side effects you might experience. After your treatment, we stay in touch in case you have questions or concerns.

How to tell if ketamine therapy is right for you

As of now, ketamine therapy is limited to those experiencing certain conditions, such as treatment-resistant depression, chronic pain, and severe anxiety. If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain for longer than three months, it might be time to talk to your doctor about a long-term pain management plan. 

Ketamine infusions are especially effective at treating pain caused by certain conditions, such as:

Those suffering from spinal injuries and degenerative conditions can also benefit from ketamine infusions. 

If you’re looking for a pain management plan that doesn’t involve NSAIDs or opioids, get in touch with the team at Ketaesthetic to determine if ketamine therapy is right for you. To schedule a consultation, call 973-604-3848 or request an appointment online
