At our clinic, we offer ketamine infusion therapy to treat conditions that can affect your quality of life.
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has long been used to induce general anesthesia. It works by preventing the brain from interpreting pain signals, thereby reducing some of the debilitating symptoms of conditions such as:
- Chronic pain
At our clinic, we offer low doses of ketamine administered through an IV in a slow process called ketamine infusion therapy. This therapy is perfect for people who have tried other treatment options without success.
Ketamine for Depression and Anxiety
Ketamine treatment works because ketamine affects both pain and mood receptors in the brain. Ketamine binds to the receptors that create neurotransmitters called glutamates. Glutamates encourage the growth of synapses in your brain, allowing you to form new pathways.
Because ketamine increases glutamates, it works to heal the areas that depression and anxiety affect the most. By creating new connections and pathways, ketamine infusion therapy does not just treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety, but it also helps treat their root cause.
Ketamine can offer much faster results than antidepressants, and it can help prevent anxiety moving forward.
Ketamine for PTSD
The cerebral cortex is the part of your brain responsible for the thought process changes that happen during and after trauma. Someone with post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, has certain malfunctioning synapses, which are transfer points between nerves, that cause the symptoms.
Ketamine therapy increases glutamates in your brain, and they work to create new synapses to fix the malfunctioning pathways. The therapy can also help reduce the frequency of suicidal thoughts. For combat veterans, as well as for people who have experienced trauma, ketamine therapy can offer the chance to start healing.
Ketamine for Migraines and Chronic Pain
Migraines are debilitating headaches that can impact your daily life. If you have migraines that do not get better with other treatments, ketamine infusion therapy may be a good option for you. Because ketamine blocks neurotransmitters from reaching the pain receptors in your brain, it can significantly reduce pain associated with migraines.
By inhibiting the amount of pain your brain registers, ketamine is also an excellent treatment for people who suffer from chronic pain caused by conditions like:
- Back pain
- Multiple sclerosis
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
Ketamine doesn’t just decrease pain levels, but it also helps restore connections in your brain to fight the actual cause of your pain.
At Ahwatukee Ketamine Clinic and Drip Lounge, we offer IV infusion therapy to boost energy levels and kick-start your immune system.
IV therapy is much more effective than oral supplements at allowing you to absorb the nutrients you need. This method of absorption is particularly important for people who have digestive tract concerns. By bypassing the digestive system entirely, IV infusion therapy can ensure that you get the nutrients you need without digestive discomfort.
The various IV therapies we offer give healthy patients the chance to improve their overall wellness. For those with chronic conditions, the therapies provide an opportunity to regain strength with vitamins B and C and many other nutrients.
This IV therapy option comes packed with vitamins C and B, as well as with a mineral blend that detoxes and rehydrates. It can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and fight fatigue.
