Ketamine for Pain Management Chicago
If you’re curious about your options for pain management in Chicago , consider ketamine infusion therapy. Ketamine, a derivative of phencyclidine hydrochloride, is a general anesthetic that can be used for both medical and non-medical purposes. Unlike other general anesthetics like propofol, ketamine has a wide variety of uses and is approved for use as a pain management solution. Our Chicago pain management clinic provides ketamine therapy as an alternative when other pain management solutions no longer provide effective relief.
In addition to its typical use as a general anesthetic, ketamine has been used to treat mental illness. It was discovered in the 1960s that the drug was extremely effective for managing pain when used in a controlled manner. Ketamine has been found useful in the treatment of many different types of pain, including chronic pain and acute postoperative pain. Illinois Pain & Spine Institute is proud to offer ketamine infusions in Chicago for those dealing with debilitating chronic pain. scheduling an appointment today!
