At the Florida Spine Institute in Clearwater, people can find relief from the symptoms of their chronic health conditions using ketamine therapy. The pain clinic provides breakthrough treatment for people suffering from both chronic pain and psychiatric disorders. Some conditions they treat include fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, depression, suicidal ideation, Lyme disease, and Lichen-sclerosus.
The Florida Spine Institute is led by an elite team of surgeons and medical professionals that pride themselves on their ability to help those recover from their pain conditions. They use the most cutting-edge therapies such as intravenous ketamine infusion — which is a type of dissociative-anesthesia. The clinic has helped thousands of patients over the last two decades and operates under the mantra, “excellence with compassion.”
– Intravenous (IV) Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Depending on the nature of your pain and your responsiveness to initial sessions, treatment protocols are individually planned. A variety of medications can be used including lidocaine, ketamine, and magnesium. Infusion cocktails are prepared at the Florida Spine Institute so they can be tailored to each patient’s therapeutic needs. These medications are generally mixed with saline in an IV bag and infused slowly over several hours depending on the protocol and medications being used. Most often, a spectrum of treatments will be suggested daily for a period of a week or more. The time period for pain relief following one or more ketamine infusions cannot be foreseen.
The Florida Spine Institute’s goal is for patients to enjoy lasting relief that can be measured in weeks or months after their last treatment. Almost all patients who experience extended pain relief will need to have occasional booster infusions or to take low-dose intranasal ketamine at home.
Ketamine infusions function as part of a treatment plan or as an alternative to unsuccessful treatments for those whose conventional therapies or medications have had little or no effect on their mental and physical health conditions. By increasing glutamate production, and by “resetting” pain signal receptors, ketamine offers hope and health to those dealing with difficult to manage problems.
