Ketamine Infusions for Migraine Headache Treatment
Migraines are severe throbbing or pulsating headaches that are usually on just one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Those who suffer from migraine or chronic headaches respond extremely well to IV ketamine therapy.
Those who suffer from chronic pain can be susceptible to becoming opioid-dependent. Low dose IV Ketamine Therapy has been clinically shown to be an effective treatment for migraine sufferers by blocking the pain signals of the nervous system. Improvement may be seen within hours of treatment with minimal side effects.
