Nearly everyone has experienced a headache at some point in our lives. If you are lucky, this is a rare occurrence. Some of us experience the pain of a headache weekly, referred to as chronic migraines. Migraines have an association with depression and can impact your mental health, productivity, physical health, and overall quality of life.
Traditional therapies for chronic migraines, and other forms of chronic pain, typically include yoga, medications, and cognitive behavioral therapy. However, patients who undergo these therapies find they still experience migraines after the fact.
Ketamine Can Help
Ketamine can be used to relieve chronic migraines and fibromyalgia by acting on the pain receptors of the brain, where traditional therapies fail. Numerous studies show how Ketamine aids in pain reduction by:
- Decreasing pain
- Numbing nerve cells to help you cope with pain
- Directly acting on neurotransmitters to decrease pain receptors in the spine and brain
Our team will work alongside you to monitor your progress and help meet your goals. Therapies usually last between two and four hours and may require multiple sessions. However, we will create a personalized therapy plan based on your condition and goals. Effects are usually felt immediately, with patients usually reporting reduced pain on the visual analog scale.
