Following its recent announcement, IV Solution & Ketamine Centers of Chicago seeks to provide South Loop residents with easy access to research-backed chronic mood and pain disorder treatments.

Ketamine has been used for anesthetic purposes since 1970 but has only been applied as part of chronic neuropathic pain therapies in recent years. When safely administered by one of the center’s licensed anesthesiologists or trained doctors in low doses, ketamine can eradicate the symptoms of chronic ailments.

The FDA-approved medication blocks cellular NMDARs, the receptors responsible for sending certain pain signals. Over-activity in these receptors manifests as fibromyalgia, a condition that according to the CDC currently affects around 4 million US adults. These neural receptors are also associated with emotional regulation and other mood disorders.

While the infusion is being intravenously administered slowly over a 45-minute session, patients are closely monitored by practitioners. The care team says that patients who have undergone the therapy have reported feelings of relaxation and freedom during the session. For the treatment of major depressive disorder and treatment-resistant depression, clinical studies have shown that ketamine infusions can have success rates as high as 80%.

At such low doses and frequencies, ketamine is not addictive, does not cause significant side effects, and can have anti-inflammatory properties. It stimulates neuronal growth and promotes neuroplasticity, an essential function for those recovering from trauma, undergoing CBT, or learning new skills.

The care team will assess each patient’s medical history and consult with their primary care physician, as well as therapists and mental health professionals to produce custom therapy plans. Ketamine Centers of Chicago will develop a healthcare plan based on administering six ketamine infusions over the course of 2 weeks, with maintenance every few months following.
