Ketamine IV Infusion therapy

Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy

Find out if ketamine infusions are right for you. If you have chronic pain that has not responded to treatment, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Our specialists work with you to determine if IV ketamine infusions may help reduce your pain.

Mental health care providers have found that it can successfully treat some types of treatment-resistant mental health conditions. And pain researchers have learned that it delivers welcome relief for some types of chronic pain.

IV Ketamine infusion therapy is not the first line of treatment. We treat chronic pain that has failed all other treatment modalities. Patients that have IV ketamine infusions for mental health conditions must be referred by their current treating psychiatrist or mental health professional.

How Does it Work?

Ketamine acts as an inhibitor of the NMDA receptor (a pain receptor in the spinal cord) to interfere with pain transmission throughout the body. It disrupts the neurotransmitter (brain chemical) glutamate. Glutamate is involved with mood and pain recognition. IV Ketamine infusion is now used to treat symptoms of:


Chronic Pain Conditions

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • Nerve Pain
  • Chronic Pain that has been unresponsive to all other treatments
  • Migraine Headaches

    Mental Health Conditions

    • Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD)
    • Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
    • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
    • Bi-Polar Disorder (BPD)
    • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
    • Anxiety Disorders
    • Postpartum Depression (PPD)
    • Postmenopausal Depression
    • Adolescent Mental Health
    • Geriatric Mental Health

    Why Intravenous (IV) Ketamine?

    IV infusion of ketamine is administered and carefully monitored by our medical professionals. Like IV vitamin infusions, it carries a low risk of adverse side effects. This is because when administered through IV, the amount of ketamine that enters your body is precisely controlled in low doses. This process allows for 100 percent absorption into the bloodstream because it bypasses other organs, such as the stomach or liver, preventing the breakdown of ketamine into less effective metabolites. 

    Ketamine is an FDA approved drug. However, ketamine IV infusion therapy is considered an off-label treatment for chronic pain and mental health conditions. There are multiple scientific articles and clinical trials reporting its efficacy when used to treat both chronic pain and mental health conditions. Many sources are currently working to seek FDA approval for these conditions.

    We continue to provide treatments with positive outcomes as do multiple health care providers throughout the world. Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance carriers do not pay for this treatment. Ketamine infusions are an out-of-pocket expense. We are hopeful this will change soon.

    Injured workers may receive insurance coverage with prior authorization as the guidelines for coverage are different for Workers’ Compensation insurance carriers. We treat injured workers from multiple states.
