Trying to manage chronic pain can feel like a losing battle. No matter what treatments you attempt, the pain keeps coming back to you. At Bay Area Ketamine Center, we want to help you engage with life without being hindered by pain. We are excited to offer you ketamine infusion therapy treatments, which can provide you with fast and lasting relief from chronic pain!
There are many different pain medications to choose from when trying to manage chronic pain. Each potential choice has its benefits and drawbacks. While opioid medications do often provide adequate pain relief, they also have bad qualities that can become quite problematic down the line when taken over an extended period. Moreover, when opioids fail to give the pain relief they are designated to deliver, it is not only pointless but also harmful to continue prescribing them for relief from chronic pain.
As such, ketamine infusion therapy is a highly viable alternative for the treatment of chronic pain. With prolonged ketamine infusions, patients can experience relief from chronic pain for up to three months! Ketamine infusions are exceptionally competent with chronic pain because it anesthetizes or inhibits N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) pain receptors in the nervous system and blocks them from firing when triggered.
As you may have guessed from our title, Bay Area Ketamine Center can offer you exceptional ketamine infusion therapy! Our team of medical professionals, led by Dr. Paul Wender, is fully certified to deliver expert and compassionate treatment to help relieve your chronic pain. Dr. Wender is a board-certified anesthesiologist who specializes in outpatient anesthesiology, nerve blocks, and pain management. Moreover, he has conducted extensive research on the benefits of ketamine infusion therapy, not only for chronic pain, but also for depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders! He has been administering ketamine infusions for over 25 years. As such, you can trust his knowledge, expertise, and experience on the subject!
During treatment, the doctor intravenously administers a single infusion or a series of infusions based on the patient’s weight at a slow and controlled pace. The dosage works out to 0.5 milligrams of ketamine per kilogram. This therapy is fast-acting, and you will feel relaxed within minutes of the infusion. Before the procedure, the doctor will conduct an initial consultation with you to determine your eligibility for treatment. The consultation will consist of a discussion concerning your medical history, current medical status, and the specific conditions for which you are seeking treatment. If your doctor approves you for treatment with this information, they will create a customized treatment plan for you. We perform all infusions right here at Bay Area Ketamine Center!
With the right amount of treatment, care, and therapy, chronic pain can go away! However, the road towards freedom from chronic pain is not always easy, and it will take some time. If it were easy and quick, it would not be called chronic pain!
