Innovative New Treatment for Chronic Pain in Reno, NV

Chronic pain affects millions of people. The latest estimates indicate that the number of people in the United States who experience chronic pain is greater than the number of people with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, combined. Even when pain is only mild, it can stop you from enjoying normal daily life. When pain is intense, it can bring your daily activities to a complete stop and steal all of the pleasure from your day. Fortunately, there is effective treatment available at our facility in Reno, NV. Learn how ketamine therapy can help reduce the burden of chronic pain.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine infusion is an effective treatment for chronic pain syndromes, especially those with a neuropathic component (such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), post-herpetic neuralgia, and neuropathic pain from peripheral nerve damage).

Here at WellCentric Health, we have seen great success using ketamine infusion therapy to help patients experiencing chronic pain. Previously, ketamine was primarily used as an anesthetic drug for general anesthesia, in operating rooms, and in war zones by active-duty US Army officers. Now we have seen that IV ketamine treatment is wildly effective for helping patients manage pain and many other disorders. Ketamine therapy has even been called the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades. We have saved the lives of many people who otherwise had no hope for relief or a decent life.

Ketamine Infusions Treatment For Chronic Pain

In addition to ketamine’s positive results when used to treat depression and anxiety, medical researchers and anesthesiologists have discovered that ketamine is also an efficient treatment for combatting chronic pain, acute postoperative pain, and migraines.

Chronic pain can be greatly reduced with ketamine infusion therapy. Instead of simply masking or dulling the pain signals, low-dose ketamine infusions actually reboot the neurotransmitters in your brain – providing a useful, safe alternative to traditional pain treatments. Amidst the growing opioid epidemic, ketamine offers a non-opioid alternative with the potential for real relief for patients suffering from chronic pain.

Before choosing to administer ketamine infusion therapy for the treatment of chronic pain, it is vital for the individual to receive a proper assessment. We are committed to working with our patients to provide the right treatment to help alleviate the discomfort caused by chronic or acute postoperative pain. Our state-of-the-art facilities and staff of highly skilled medical professionals and physicians will help you find the comprehensive treatment program to help you take the next steps towards recovery and wellness.

Psychotherapy & Integrated Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine Therapy shouldn’t replace clinical therapy. In fact, it is more effective when used in tandem with clinical therapy in what is considered an “integrated approach.” Fortunately, here at WellCentric, we have the advantage of collaborating with Kay Reimers MSW LCSW, our Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist.
