It may be difficult to find comfort when you’re suffering from chronic pain. Some treatments may provide relief for a while only to lose effectiveness over time leaving with the same incurable persistent pain. Infusion therapy is a horse of a different color, however.
This therapy is often the secret to finding that elusive relief we’re all so desperately chasing. Infusion therapy is administered under the supervision of a licensed pain specialist, who determines the precise quantity required.
What is Infusion Therapy?
Infusion Therapy is a custom approach, meaning each patient’s infusion formula is uniquely formulated to their needs. Infusions are often made up of a combination of powerful pain relievers like Ketamine and Lidocaine and vitamin additives to help you feel your best.
This therapy is administered in-office by qualified pain technicians. The appointment times can range depending on the severity of pain and other factors like weight and gender. You can expect between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The frequency of appointments will also vary based on the severity of your condition from weekly, monthly, quarterly, or even on an as-needed basis.
Your pain management doctor will assist you in gaining a greater understanding of what to anticipate during your first and subsequent appointments.
What Conditions does Infusion Therapy Treat?
The benefit of Infusion treatment is that it can be customized to the patient’s specific pain. Due to this infusion therapy is often a great option for many intractable and difficult-to-treat types of pain arising from the central and peripheral nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and within the organs of the abdomen and pelvis.
It is also highly effective for more commonplace pain that is persistent and resistant to other treatments like migraines, complex regional pain syndrome, and arthritis.
Is Infusion Therapy Safe?
It is perfectly safe when infusion treatment is provided in a controlled medical environment by a competent practitioner. You are being monitored and evaluated and side effects are rarely reported. The safety and efficacy of infusion therapy come in the form of disrupting the pain cycle. Pain is not a good thing. Pain typically involves inflammation and can be overall highly damaging to the body.
