In this episode, I interview Ben Clark who is a Nurse practitioner/ Certified Registered nurse in Anestesiology who is the co-owner of Tri-Cities Wellness and Infusion center, located in Kennewick, WA
Dr Ben and I discuss a newer treatment called KETAMINE and how this treatment Is helping patients fight chronic pain as well as other things. Ketamine was developed in the 1960’s and has been an FDA approved anesthetic and analgesic medication since the 1970’s. Ketamine is used safely throughout the world. Most recently Ketamine infusions have been studied and used for the treatment of refractory depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain syndromes, and other conditions with success. How does it work? Ketamine works on the NMDA receptors within the brain. It causes an increase in the neuro transmitter Glutamate. While not all of it’s mechanisms of action are known, it has been shown to repair and help rebuild neuro synapses and pathways within the brain. How many treatments you will need depends on the individuals needs typically 4-6 infusions over a 4-7 day period is sufficient,. Then booster infusions as needed.
Katamine has showed improvements in many pain disorders like Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Chronic pain, CRPS
