Ketamine Infusions for Pain Management & Chronic Pain

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine, a compound used in medicine for over 50 years, was first synthesized in 1962 and approved for use in the United States in 1970. While it is sometimes known for its misuse as an illegal drug, Ketamine is medically used to induce and maintain general anesthesia during surgery. Recently, it has been gaining acceptance for its effectiveness in relieving chronic pain and treatment-resistant depression. Pacific Pain & Wellness has fine-tuned its ketamine protocol since 2013 to yield the most effective and long-lasting results for patients.
