The Memphis Ketamine Clinic provides ketamine therapy treatment to people coping with chronic pain and mood disorders. The symptoms experienced by chronic pain and mood sufferers can often be debilitating and treatment-resistant. Ketamine therapy has been shown to help people overcome their disorders in 75 percent of cases.
The clinic is led by a highly professional medical passionate about helping people. The Memphis Ketamine Clinic has a staff that is comprised of a physician and several certified anesthesia providers so that each patient can be confident they are receiving proper care in a professional environment.
The clinic also partnered with several mental health providers in order to provide a well-rounded approach to care using ketamine therapy.
Ketamine is administered intravenously very slowly over 45 minutes. At the start of the infusion, you may not have noticeable effects, but as the infusion progresses, you may encounter a feeling of “lightness” or “floating,” which for some feels like a “weight being lifted off their shoulders.” Most patients describe mild dissociative symptoms that are generally well tolerated. You will be monitored throughout the infusion and the clinic is prepared to treat any unpleasant side effects during the procedure. Within 15 minutes of completing the infusion, you will start to regain your senses and your thinking will return to normal.
A total of six infusions is recommended within a 3 week period in order to maximize the effects of ketamine. The repair and growth of new nerve cells over time is what can lead to long-lasting improvements in symptoms. However, the total length of treatment depends on each individual’s unique circumstances.
