Ketamine Therapy

effectively treat
persistent conditions

IV Ketamine infusion therapy can effectively treat chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. Once called an alternative treatment, it has brought relief to thousands of individuals when other treatments have failed. Pain and depression often occur together not only because one causes the other, but because pain and depression share common pathways in your nervous system. Treasure Valley Pain Center’s in-office, 45-minute, medically supervised IV infusion leverages the benefits of Ketamine and vitamin therapies to address your symptoms upstream, allowing your neurons to start communicating along new pathways and provide stubborn symptom relief for chronic pain and depression.


How does
ketamine work?

Ketamine is an NMDA receptor antagonist that selectively interacts with key brain neurotransmitters. When ketamine binds to these receptors in the brain, neurons begin a process called synaptogenesis, meaning they start communicating along new pathways…affecting mood, cognition, and patterns of thoughts in general. This can reduce feelings of depression and repair damage which was caused by increased cortisol and other long-term stress hormones which affect the brain’s communication systems.

  • What is the cost of Ketamine infusion therapy?
