Pain happens in life – but you do not need to suffer. For certain types of pain, ketamine therapy provides an alternative approach to pain management and pain relief, bringing you options beyond surgery and potentially addictive pain medications.
What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a non-opioid anesthetic that treats pain by managing how sensitive you are to pain signals. When given in low doses, it provides pain control that won’t take control of you – so you can live the life you love in better health.
What Conditions Can Ketamine Therapy Treat?
At Advanced Spine & Pain Clinics of Minnesota, we use ketamine therapy to treat very specific types of pain – which are not always physical. We offer ketamine therapy for:
Acute and Chronic Pain Relief
For certain types of acute pain and chronic pain, particularly when neuropathic (nerve-related) issues play a role, ketamine therapy can provide a safe and effective form of pain management.
Acute and chronic pain conditions we commonly treat with ketamine therapy include:
- Complex regional pain syndrome/reflex sympathetic dystrophy (CRPS/RSD)
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Neuralgia (sharp pain that follows a nerve path)
- Causalgia (a painful, burning-like sensation in a limb caused by peripheral nerve injury)
- Certain types of cancer pain (chronic pain caused by cancer progression)
Mental and Emotional Health
Pain is not always physical. Ketamine therapy can be used to manage certain mood disorders and emotional health issues as well, including depression and post-traumatic stress (PTS, also known as PTSD).
Take a more natural path to better health with functional medicine.
Ketamine therapy is a type of functional medicine, a specialized field of medicine that integrates traditional techniques with alternative therapies for more natural healing and holistic health and wellness. Through effective, nonsurgical treatment options that enhance your body’s own natural healing processes, functional medicine delivers many health benefits, including pain management and pain relief, disease prevention, healthy aging, improved fitness, greater athleticism and more.
At Advanced Spine & Pain Clinics of Minnesota, we use leading-edge functional medicine therapies to treat the whole person, not just your symptoms. Our physicians and care team work closely with you to understand your needs, goals, and the root causes of your health and wellness challenges, so we can create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
