The Chronic Pain Relief You Have Been Searching For
At Vigeo Wellness in Forth Worth, TX, we are proud to offer the latest chronic pain treatment options. In addition to high levels of safety standards and patient care, Vigeo Wellness utilizes ketamine infusion therapy (KIT) for the treatment of various chronic pain conditions like restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
Our mission is to provide personalized, high-quality pain management options for people struggling with treatment-resistant conditions. Ketamine infusions have proven to be a powerful treatment option that can provide quick relief in as little as one session.
There are typically two types of individuals with chronic pain who might take advantage of this treatment: patients with chronic pain that have not had much progress with other pain medicines or treatment methods, or people with chronic pain who plan to have surgery.
The most significant advantage for most individuals who choose to use ketamine infusions for their chronic pain is the diminishment of their various pain and pain-influenced symptoms. Ketamine infusions are frequently used for patients that have found that other treatment options have not benefited them. For some patients, ketamine infusion therapy can enable them to live a satisfied, pain-free, or pain-reduced life.
The procedure itself is almost pain-free for the patient compared to other pain management solutions. There is no surgery associated with the process. This can be wonderful for patients who have tried medicine, therapy, or surgical treatment without any success, or those who are uneasy about having a surgical procedure.
It is believed that the leading cause of chronic pain is due to overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps the condition 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.
As a new treatment option for chronic pain, ketamine has a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, double or blurred vision, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and slight anxiety feelings after being given a dose. This treatment method is not developmental because this is an FDA-approved drug utilized for “off-label” or less typical use.
An “off-label” use indicates that it offers a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops in time.
As a good example, the medication Prazosin’s purpose was to treat hypertension in 1976, but it is now mainly used to treat nightmares in individuals with PTSD, a use not initially approved.
During treatment, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia require a larger dose.
A number of our patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this disassociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.
These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.
Are you ready to take back control of your life? Are you tired of trying one pain medication after the other to only be left with no relief? Then ketamine infusions might be an excellent option for you.
