What Is Ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine therapy involves the use of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, as a treatment for various mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain. It is a medical treatment that should be administered under supervision by qualified medical professionals only.

How Does Ketamine Therapy Treat Mental Health Conditions?

Ketamine works differently from traditional antidepressants by targeting the brain’s glutamate system, specifically N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. This triggers a cascade of neurochemical changes that are believed to reverse symptoms of depression and other mood disorders. Ketamine also has rapid-acting properties, with effects often felt within hours or days.

How Does Ketamine Therapy Treat Chronic Pain?

Ketamine therapy can help with chronic pain through its unique mechanism of action in the brain and nervous system. Chronic pain often involves complex changes in the way the brain processes pain signals. Ketamine acts on various receptors in the brain, including N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, which play a role in the perception of pain.

By blocking NMDA receptors and modulating other neurotransmitter systems, ketamine can reduce the intensity of pain signals sent to the brain. Additionally, ketamine has been found to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects, which may further contribute to its pain-relieving properties.

Who Is a Candidate for Ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine therapy may be considered for individuals who have not responded well to traditional antidepressant medications or who require rapid relief from severe depressive symptoms. It is also used for individuals with treatment-resistant anxiety disorders, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and certain chronic pain conditions. A comprehensive consultation is required to determine individual candidacy.

What Is the Cost of Ketamine Therapy?

The cost of ketamine therapy depends on such factors as the dosage and frequency of sessions, so it varies. During your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be created, including a detailed price quote tailored to your specific circumstances and requirements.
