Ketamine for Chronic Pain

Ketamine for Chronic Pain


With an increasing number of patients being diagnosed with chronic pain across the country, we at Remedy Pain Solutions strive to be on the leading edge of treatment options offered to patients in the Marina Del Rey, California area. Those who have chronic pain understand how difficult it can be to find the treatment that both fits their lifestyle and is effective in treating their individual pain levels. Over the past decade, research has emerged which indicates that ketamine intravenous (I.V.) infusion therapy may be the treatment to do just that.


While ketamine has been used for over 40 years by anesthesiologists during surgery, the medical community continues to see a dramatic increase in the use of ketamine infusion therapy for the treatment of chronic pain. Chronic neuropathic pain conditions, such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), can unfortunately prove difficult to treat using traditional methods such as physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, and medication management. The good news is that these same conditions respond particularly well to ketamine infusion therapy, even when more traditional treatments have been deemed ineffective. Patients currently living with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome may find themselves needing increasing doses of opioid pain medications, which are only designed to temporarily dull the pain. Ketamine, on the other hand, offers immediate and long-lasting pain relief that allows patients to avoid the use of opioids and their potential for serious and long-lasting side effects. 


Many patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome struggle to find a treatment that is right for them. While ketamine infusion may not be the right choice for every patient’s pain, there is no doubt that this is a safe and effective alternative to traditional opioid therapy. At Remedy Pain Solutions, we are proud to offer Ketamine infusion therapy in the comfort of our office in Marina Del Rey, California. If you are living near Marina Del Rey, California and are suffering with chronic neuropathic pain, come in to Remedy Pain Solutions where we’ll be happy to discuss whether Ketamine infusion therapy is the right choice for you.
