Why Use Ketamine to Treat Chronic Pain?
It’s not uncommon for some chronic pain treatments to take time to set in, and it can often take weeks or months before any relief is felt. Ketamine, on the other hand, is a promising new treatment option, because in some cases it can provide symptom relief in days (or even hours).
Pain Conditions We Treat With Ketamine
What is Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Pain is a normal part of the healing process and often serves as a way to keep us from potentially harming ourselves further. Unexplained or prolonged pain, on the other hand, is classified as Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS). Where normal, healthy amounts of pain–like a scraped knee after falling from a bike–will eventually subside with time, but the effects of chronic pain rarely (if ever) go away on their own.
Chronic pain is a serious, (potentially debilitating) health condition. It can also create new problems if left untreated, like depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Per the Mayo Clinic, “Chronic pain can limit your quality of life and lead to additional, serious mental health problems. Finding effective treatment is important–as is balancing pain relief with your safety.”
While it can be difficult to treat, it’s not impossible. Continue reading to learn more about CPS and ways to treat it. Understanding is the first step to healing.
What are the Symptoms of Chronic Pain Syndrome?
CPS affects you both physically and mentally. Some symptoms include:
What exactly causes CPS is unknown, but some believe that it stems from an initial injury or pre-existing condition, like:
- Arthritis and other joint problems
- Back pain
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Repetitive stress injuries, when the same movement over and over puts strain on a body part
- Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes muscle pain throughout the body
- Nerve damage
- Lyme disease
- Broken bones
- Acid reflux or ulcers
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Endometriosis is when tissue in the uterus grows outside of it
Treatment for Chronic Pain Syndrome
Although there is no “cure-all” treatment for CPS, there are ways to help manage its symptoms, like physical therapy, counseling, medications, etc. Though some medications take time for the user to feel their effects, ketamine is a treatment option that has been known to work more timely.
Though originally known for its use as an FDA-approved anesthetic, ketamine is what doctors are calling the biggest breakthrough in the treatment of both mood disorders (depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc) and pain conditions (chronic pain, restless legs syndrome, fibromyalgia, etc).
