KDI Health offers cutting-edge intramuscular ketamine treatment for mental health conditions and chronic pain.
Intramuscular ketamine treatment is a more accessible and affordable treatment option. While absorption rates are not quite as high, it is a faster treatment that is scientifically shown to offer the therapeutic effects associated with IV ketamine infusions.
Conditions Treated with Intramuscular Ketamine
Applying ketamine through intramuscular injections allows the ketamine to be absorbed by your body in a fast-acting manner. Ketamine can provide you with rapid relief from your symptoms within days in most cases.
Conditions intramuscular ketamine injections are used to treat at KDI Health include the following:
- Bipolar disorder
How Does Intramuscular Ketamine Work?
Whether given by IV or IM, Ketamine works by primarily exciting an important chemical messenger, glutamate, and inhibiting a key nerve receptor in the brain called NMDA. This process both diminishes pain and encourages new neural growth in brain regions associated with mood regulation, memory, and learning.
Conditions like depression or chronic pain can damage these connections in the brain, called “synapses,” which are an important part of recovery from these conditions. This is why ketamine can be so effective -– it doesn’t treat just symptoms; it actually helps the brain regenerate and improves its ability to heal itself.
