Fibromyalgia & Migraines



Ever since Ketamine was first discovered in the 1960s, we have known that it has

numerous ways by which it impacts pain.

How Does Ketamine Aid with Pain Relief?


Scientists have been using different research studies to examine how Ketamine actually works on pain pathways.

  • Ketamine works in multiple ways to decrease one of your own existing brain chemicals, called neurotransmitters. 

  • These neurotransmitters are decreased at pain receptors in the brain and spinal cord.

  • Additionally, Ketamine works on your own natural opioid receptors to increase pain threshold thereby decreasing the amount of pain felt.

  • Finally, Ketamine also impacts the nerve cells of your own pain inhibiting pathways that help you cope with pain.


What to expect from the treatments?​

  • The treatments include 2 to 4 hour sessions and can be spread over a few days.

  • The pain regimen is very individualized to the patient

  • In general, patients feel effects within the first day or so and are recommended to continue their regular care.
