The Pain Medicine Consultants Pleasant Hill provides ketamine infusion services to people with treatment-resistant pain disorders. Breakthrough ketamine treatments have shown to be effective for treatment-resistant conditions and the medical center helps people overcome their symptoms one infusion at a time. Conditions they treat include fibromyalgia, migraines, and complex regional pain syndrome.
The clinic’s highly trained staff understand just how debilitating chronic pain can be. Their main goal is to help patients heal in a lasting way so they can regain control over their health. Pain Medicine Consultants Pleasant Hill has three providers on staff, each specialized in interventional pain management.
Their main goal is to help people by combining cutting-edge science and traditional forms of pain relief to provide lasting results.
The ketamine infusion process is simple and straightforward. You’ll lay comfortably while your doctor connects an IV to either your arm or leg.
You get the ketamine medication, mixed with saline, through an IV over about an hour. You’ll be awake for the whole infusion. There’s a 30-minute recovery period before you can go home after your ketamine infusion. Arrange for someone to drive you home, as you can’t drive for 12 hours after treatment.
How many ketamine infusions you’ll need depends on your symptoms, your conditions, and how your body responds to the ketamine. Most patients at Pain Medicine Consultants have a series of treatments, and typically see significant results after several treatments.
Those who have not been helped by conventional treatment strategies have another option with ketamine treatments. Research in the last 7-10 years has shown that ketamine infusions are effective for those suffering from treatment-resistant mental health conditions and chronic pain conditions. Either as an alternative to or a supplement to mainstream treatments, ketamine infusions offer an alternative path to healing for those who have lost hope.
