A migraine is a severe headache that is often accompanied by sensitivity to light, nausea, and vomiting. Migraines can last for hours or days at a time, causing significant disruption to your life. According to the American Migraine Foundation, migraine headaches occur in approximately 12% of Americans over the age of 12. Migraine headaches affect 17% of women and 6% of men, most commonly during midlife, and rates decrease after age 60.
Many people seek treatment for their migraine headaches due to the severity of pain and the negative impact on their quality of life. While NSAIDs and prescription medications may provide some measure of relief, many people still find that recurring headaches and severe pain regularly disrupt their lives. When pain is unbearable, and medications are not working – where do you turn?
IV Ketamine Treatments
Taking medication by mouth does not provide instant relief. The medicine must pass through the digestive system, be absorbed through the stomach, and then passed through the body to provide any type of relief. Prescription pain medications can be addictive and detrimental to the overall health. Ketamine infusion treatments offer an alternative to pain medication for long-term relief from chronic pain.
IV Ketamine treatments are administered intravenously so that they go to work almost immediately. The body is “flooded” with therapeutic compounds to relieve your pain and the other unpleasant symptoms related to migraine headaches.
Ketamine is not considered a permanent cure for migraines, but it is a highly effective alternative with minimal, if any, side effects. Once relief is experienced through IV Ketamine treatment, many people use ketamine treatments as maintenance therapy. Some patients come for treatments every 4 months, every 8 weeks, or once a month. Even with ongoing “maintenance,” migraine sufferers experience much better and longer-lasting relief from ketamine treatments than conventional medications.
Effective Treatment for Chronic Migraines
Ketamine IV treatments for chronic migraines offer our patients freedom from pain and the adverse side effects of medications. With IV treatments and ongoing maintenance, ketamine therapy has helped many people find the relief they have been seeking to obtain the quality of life they deserve.
