Living with chronic pain is not only debilitating, but it can also leave you feeling frustrated, hopeless, and very isolated.

What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is characterized as pain that you experience for 12 weeks or more despite medical intervention.
How does Ketamine work for Chronic Pain?
The two main ways Ketamine works to treat chronic pain are: increase endorphins and decrease pain signals.
Stimulate endorphin production
Endorphins are our body’s natural pain relievers. By stimulating the production of endorphins, we can increase a general feeling of well-being and reduce anxiety.
In fact, a higher baseline of endorphins can even help prevent or reduce future pain.
Decrease neural signals associated with pain
Studies indicate that Ketamine reduces the number of nerve signals commonly associated with pain.
By stimulating the body’s natural pain-reducing neurotransmitters and decreasing the number of pain signals, ketamine can provide rapid and long-lasting relief from your chronic pain.
Ketamine works differently in the brain to increase your natural levels of endorphins, a natural pain reliever. Because of this, ketamine may be more adept at treating certain types of chronic pain, including:
- Neuropathic pain
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- Other unique forms of nerve and chronic pain
