Ketamine Treatment for CRPS
Complex regional pain syndrome, or CRPS, can cause debilitating chronic pain for many people. Treatments and therapies to control or manage pain can be unpredictable, and many of those with CRPS turn to opioids or other dangerous pain medications to give them relief. If you suffer from CRPS and want to explore an alternative to opioids or other pain medications for relief from your chronic pain, consider ketamine infusions. Our team at CLEAR Wellness Group offers ketamine treatment for CRPS at our clinic in Chicago.
Ketamine has been FDA-approved for use as an anesthetic since 1969. It can create a euphoric mental state which has been studied for over 50 years. In the last few decades, ketamine treatments have been used to combat mood disorders like depression, anxiety and OCD, as well as chronic pain conditions like CRPS.
Our double board certified pain physicians and anesthesiologists utilize ketamine infusions to help our patients with chronic pain obtain relief. In 70-75% of our patients, ketamine treatments provide a substantial impact on relieving their symptoms. This can help patients with CRPS reduce their need for addictive and dangerous opioids with an alternative and more effective way to manage their chronic pain.
Ketamine Infusion Sessions
Ketamine treatment for CRPS requires a series of 3-4 sessions over two weeks. For chronic pain relief, sessions last 2.5-3 hours, and patients may feel tired after their sessions. Patients do not usually begin to notice relief from their pain symptoms until their second or third session. Ongoing therapy and booster sessions are recommended to maintain relief from CRPS symptoms.
