Pain Management

Chronic pain is debilitating and devastates millions of American lives. The pain can originate from an injury or condition and persist for months and even years. Chronic pain can drastically impact your quality of life. Ketamine inhibits the release of pain-causing chemicals in the body. The infusions are more effective and less risky than narcotics for pain treatment. Ketamine IV infusions additionally treat the mood disorders that usually accompany chronic pain, such as depression.
