PAIN MANAGEMENT TREATMENT
KETAMINE INFUSION THERAPY
How Does It Work?
IV infusion of Ketamine is effective and carefully monitored by medical professionals. Similar to the IV Vitamin infusions, it carries a low risk of adverse side effects. This is because when administered through IV, the amount of Ketamine that enters your body is precisely controlled in low doses. This process allows for 100% absorption into the blood stream because it bypasses other organs, such as the stomach or liver, preventing the breakdown of ketamine into less effective metabolites. When taken orally or by other means besides IV, the medication becomes more difficult to control and monitor. With IV Ketamine infusions, you can be exact and precise with the quantity and rate at which it is absorbed by the body. Patients vary in the number of treatments needed for noticeable results.
