5 Ailments Ketamine Therapy Treats

Ketamine is a well-known medication that can aid individuals with multiple health conditions. Ketamine therapy is used in various clinical settings, from hospitals to mental health practices. Let's take a look at five ailments that this type of therapy can treat.

1. Depression

According to Regis College, around 47 million adults nationwide are treated for mental illnesses. Millions of these people are suffering from depression. It's important to be aware that treating depression is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some cases of depression are harder to treat and may resist standard medications. Ketamine therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for some individuals with this condition.

2. Anxiety

Anxiety is an umbrella term that covers several conditions, including PTSD, general anxiety, and social anxiety. Many disorders in this category inhibit a person's ability to live a life they enjoy. Ketamine therapy has proven effective at helping reduce or eliminate the symptoms of such disorders in many patients.

3. Bipolar Depression

Bipolar disorder is marked by periods of depression and periods of mania. During depressive episodes, many individuals find it challenging to find the motivation to do anything, including daily activities. Some people may feel suicidal during these episodes. Ketamine therapy can help reduce the symptoms of depression, including suicide and suicidal ideation, during depressive episodes.

4. Chronic Pain

Ketamine treatment, including ketamine infusions, can impact the same receptors in the brain that react to opioids. This makes ketamine therapy useful for pain management. Many doctors utilize this type of treatment for conditions that cause chronic pain, like fibromyalgia.

5. Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain is any type of pain that impacts the nervous system. This type of pain often causes tingling or burning sensations. These sensations can happen anywhere in the body. They often vary in severity, with some people having almost no symptoms and others having disabling symptoms. Ketamine treatment can help minimize or eliminate symptoms of neuropathic pain.

Ketamine therapy can be used to treat many different mental and physical conditions. Ketamine was approved for use by the FDA in the 1970s, and research continues to discover new benefits that come with this form of treatment. If you think you may benefit from ketamine therapy, it's important to consult a medical professional to determine whether it's the right option for your needs.
