Ketamine Infusion Therapy

A Treatment for Chronic Pain

Oral medications are sometimes ineffective in treating chronic nerve pain. For patients with conditions such as fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), phantom limb syndrome, migraine, and spinal cord injuries, lidocaine or ketamine infusions may be more effective in treating pain.

At Center for Pain Management in Indianapolis, infusions may be part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes physical therapy and other procedures. Every patient is unique, so we take the time to develop a personalized plan of care.

About Pain Infusion Treatment

Ketamine infusion treatment may help patients who want to reduce their use of opioid medications. This procedure may not be appropriate for patients who have high blood pressure, heart arrhythmias, or other conditions. Center for Pain Management may recommend other treatments – such as a spinal cord stimulator implant – for patients who are not ideal candidates for infusion treatment.

What to Expect

During an infusion procedure, patients may receive lidocaine or ketamine, along with other medications. The procedure may last for a few hours, and the pain-relieving effects can continue for several weeks. After an infusion, patients may feel groggy for several hours, so they will need someone to drive them home from their appointment.
