Chronic Pain Q & A

What are the common causes of chronic pain?

By definition, chronic pain endures for at least 12 weeks. There are several types of chronic pain, whether it’s a constant dull ache or sharp, shooting pains. It can occur anywhere in your body. For example, some of the most common causes of chronic pain include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Arthritis 
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Injury-related pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Cancer pain
  • Nerve pain

You might also have a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), or an autoimmune disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. 

When should I talk to a doctor about pain?

If you have pain that lasts for more than a few days or is so severe that it disrupts your quality of life, you should make an appointment. You should never ignore pain. While mild injuries usually subside with a few days of at-home rest, more severe or persistent pain is a sign of a more serious problem. 

How is pain treated?

Traditionally, physicians diagnose the cause of your pain and provide treatment to heal the underlying condition or reduce your symptoms. For example, if you have pain due to a compressed nerve in your spine, a physician might provide a spinal injection to reduce inflammation and physical therapy to correct the issue, causing the inflammation and nerve compression.

However, in some cases, conventional pain treatments aren’t effective. The team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado offers ketamine infusion therapy for chronic pain that hasn’t responded to other treatments. 

Ketamine is a drug with potent pain-relieving and sedative properties. It’s been used in anesthesiology for decades. Modern research shows that in smaller doses, it provides long-lasting pain relief for chronic pain conditions, especially those due to nerve damage. 

What should I expect during a ketamine infusion treatment?

During your ketamine infusion, you relax in a comfortable chair, and a member of the team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado stays with you from start to finish. They check your vital signs at five-minute intervals to ensure your safety and comfort. 

A ketamine infusion for chronic pain can take several hours. Some patients have a floating or out-of-body sensation while they receive their infusion. These side effects are normal and disappear soon after your treatment is complete. 

If you have chronic pain, call Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado or make an appointment online today to find out if ketamine infusion therapy can help relieve your pain.
