Ketamine for Chronic Pain Management

According to recent data from the CDC, an estimated 20.4% (50.0 million) of U.S. adults had chronic pain, and 8.0% of U.S. adults (19.6 million) had high-impact chronic pain.

Fortunately, a new treatment option like ketamine infusion therapy is giving hope to those who have not been able to get the pain relief they need from conventional treatment methods and medications.

How Does Ketamine Help Manage Chronic Pain?

It is believed that one of the leading causes of chronic pain conditions is the overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps chronic pain by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of chronic pain symptoms.

By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons. Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors.

Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity – essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.

How Successful is Ketamine for Chronic Pain?

There is evidence that long term treatment of chronic pain (particularly in pain with a neuropathic component) with ketamine will cause prolonged pain relief.
