Ketamine Infusion Therapy Q & A

What is ketamine?

Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic and analgesic (pain-killing) medication often used during surgery to keep patients comfortable and pain-free. The medication blocks pain signals from traveling to the brain to relieve chronic pain. In the high doses used in surgery, ketamine also sedates patients into unconsciousness.

What conditions can ketamine infusions treat?

In recent years, ketamine has been recognized as a breakthrough treatment for chronic pain that results from degenerative disease and traumatic injuries.

The team at Quench Wellness offers ketamine infusion therapy, which involves delivering the medication directly into your bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) infusion. This method of treatment is highly effective in relieving symptoms of several treatment-resistant mental health disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Ketamine infusions form new synapses in your brain that can provide long-term relief from the symptoms of a mental health disorder. 

Under the careful supervision of the board-certified pain management team, you can find both immediate and long-lasting relief of pain and symptoms of mental health disorders.

Am I a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy?

To determine if ketamine infusion therapy is right for you, the team at Quench Wellness reviews your medical history, family history, existing symptoms, and general health.

In many cases, ketamine infusion therapy is a treatment option when other therapies aren’t effective in relieving pain or mental health symptoms. Your provider might first recommend other methods for pain and symptom relief before suggesting ketamine infusions.

What can I expect during ketamine infusion therapy?

Your provider at Quench Wellness can determine the right dosage of ketamine for your therapy based on your condition and the severity of your pain.

During your in-office infusion, your provider delivers the medication into your bloodstream through an IV line. You could notice some benefits of the therapy during your treatment, especially if you suffer from depression. Many people experience immediate relief from depressive symptoms during the infusion. With continued therapy, they find they can stay in control of their condition.

The team at Quench Wellness will let you know how often you’ll need therapy, and they carefully monitor the effectiveness of your treatment to ensure that you’re enjoying a high quality of life and symptom relief.
