The Best New CRPS Treatment in New Jersey & Philadelphia
CRPS occurs most frequently in people of European ancestry (in about 66 to 80 percent of cases). In a study done in the United States, it was found that CRPS type I developed in 5.46 persons out of every 100,000 per year. It is estimated that CRPS affects nearly 200,000 patients annually in the United States.

What Are The Signs and Symptoms of CRPS?
CRPS shows up in a wide range of ways. Signs and symptoms and intensity levels differ from one person to another. A number of people experience numerous symptoms whilst others only experience only a few. Among the most prevalent symptoms of depression include:
- Continuous burning or throbbing pain, generally in the hands, feet, arms, or legs
- Sometimes referred to as “pins and needles”
- Decreased mobility to move the affected area
- Sensitivity to cold or touch
- Changes to the skin and nail beds
- Swelling of the injured or painful area
How Does Ketamine Help Treat CRPS?
It is believed that one of the leading causes of CRPS is the overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps chronic pain by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of chronic pain symptoms.
By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons. Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors.
Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity – essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.
What is The Ketamine Experience Like?
During your ketamine treatment for chronic pain, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while infusions for chronic pain conditions require a larger dose.
A number of patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this dissociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.
These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.
What are The Side-Effects of Ketamine Treatment?
As a new treatment option for CRPS, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings during treatment.
Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in “off-label” use for infusion therapy. Off-label use indicates that it is a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops with time.
Ketamine may cause a slight elevation in heart rate and blood pressure.
