At MHPC we understand the effects that depression and chronic pain can bring to one's life. While common treatments, like oral medications, work for some, they do not work for everyone. That is why Miracle Hills Primary Care Center offers ketamine infusions as a next level alternative for when other treatments have failed.
Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Chronic Pain
Many chronic pain syndromes are caused by an up-regulation of NMDA receptors in the brain.
Ketamine works by blocking these NDMA receptors, causing them to down-regulate, effectivly resetting them to normal levels. This sort of “rebooting” of the brain has been found to dramatically alter or even eliminate pain. Certain types of pain considered to be “neuropathic” in origin tend to be the most responsive to ketamine therapy, however, other types of chronic pain may also benefit.
Chronic Pain Conditions Treated With Ketamine Infusions:
- trigeminal neuralgia
- complex regional pain (CRP)
- diabetic neuropathies
- phantom limb pain
- post herpetic neuralgia
- chronic temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) pain
- musculoskeletal pain
Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Depression
Antidepressants can take weeks or even months to reach therapeutic levels in your system before they have an effect. Even then, some patients try many medications in endless combinations and doses and still feel no relief from their depression. Evidence shows that low doses of ketamine prevents the uptake of glutamate, an inhibitory neurotransmitter believed to be responsible for normal brain function.
Some of the conditions treated with low dose ketamine infusions are:;
- major depressive disorders
- post-partum depression
- bi-polar depression
- post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- severe anxiety
Since treatment varies on each patient, we require a consultation to answer all of your questions and ensure that this treatment option is right for you.
