KETAMINE INFUSIONS NEAR LAWS CA
Ketamine near Laws CA | Depression & Chronic Pain Supplemental Treatments
Ketamine infusions have offered new hope to many patients who couldn’t find effective relief for their depressive symptoms using talk therapy & selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI) alone. Given that the use of low dose IV ketamine has only recently garnered medical attention–the last decade–many patients and providers are unaware of its newly recognized therapeutic value and now ketamine infusions are available near Laws, CA.
Traditionally, the symptoms of depression were treated with a combination of talk therapy and a daily SSRI as an antidepressant. The goal of this combination was to allow the patient to reach biological and psychological stability through an increase in the amount of available serotonin in the brain. This process, which typically takes a few weeks, unfortunately doesn’t always work. Sadly, before ketamine, many were left without another option. This forced many to live in a perpetual fog of their depression.
Ketamine’s main mechanism of action is believed to be through the glutamate system as an NMDA-receptor antagonist. It is through this that it offers its unique benefits on the formation and malleability of memories. Through this, old spinal dendrites in the brain are replaced with newer ones–building new pathways for memories to travel. This treatment appears to make it easier for many patients to re-learn or replace old painful and destructive thoughts, behaviors, and phobias.
Due its unique interactivity, ketamine also offers effective pain relief for patients who suffer from conditions like diabetic nerve pain, fibromyalgia and CRPS. Thankfully, ketamine is not known to be physically addictive. It is therefore a safer alternative for pain relief when compared to the traditional but addictive opioid painkillers.
