Ketamine Infusions for Chronic Pain Treatment
Over the past 50 years, ketamine’s role in health has evolved dramatically. What was once primarily a surgical sedative has become an invaluable resource for various physical and mental issues, known both for its transformative power and immediate results.
Traditional medications like antidepressants can take months to start working. Ketamine therapy, on the other hand, offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.
How Does Ketamine Help Treat Chronic Pain?
Mounting evidence continues to show that ketamine helps with chronic pain. There is still much to be understood about how ketamine alleviates chronic pain. Scientists tend to focus on ketamine’s ability to boost the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter found throughout the central nervous system. This heightened glutamate activity allows new pathways to form in areas of the brain associated with memory, learning, and mood regulation. Importantly, heightened glutamate corresponds with the inhibition of NMDA receptors which are associated with the physical experience of pain.
Researchers are starting to see that the positive effects of many antidepressants may be a result of regulating glutamate, although less directly than ketamine. Because of this indirect process, SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants often take weeks to start improving symptoms of chronic pain, if they do at all. Ketamine often produces results and relief from chronic pain symptoms during the first session.
