Chronic Pain Q&A

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain lasts longer than expected. Many doctors diagnose chronic pain following three months of continuous pain. Chronic pain can last for months, years, or the rest of your life if you don’t get the correct treatment.

What causes chronic pain?

Chronic pain can happen for many reasons, with some of the most common sources being:


  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Cancer-related pain


For the most part, acute pain following an injury or surgery lasts just a few days or weeks (until you heal). However, acute pain lingers in some cases, becoming chronic.

When do I need help with chronic pain?

If you have long-lasting pain and your previous treatment didn’t return you to living a fulfilling life, it’s time to reach out for help. Some clear signs that chronic pain is disrupting your life include:


  • Difficulty getting around your home
  • Restricting your activities
  • Spending more time in bed
  • Taking more medication than you’d like
  • Changes in your mood, like depression and anxiety
  • Suicidal ideation


You might feel unsure about reaching out for help with chronic pain if you’ve already tried medication, injections, physical therapy, and even surgery. But ketamine is an alternative that might beat them all because it works in an entirely different way.

How does ketamine treat chronic pain?

Ketamine is classified as a surgical anesthetic by the FDA and has been used reliably for over 50 years.


More recently, researchers discovered that ketamine works differently in low doses. Ketamine has several beneficial effects. In the case of chronic pain, it blocks specific pain receptors, resets damaged brain connections, and reduces inflammation.


Ultimately, experts believe that ketamine helps you perceive pain signals differently, leading to effective relief of chronic pain. Ketamine is particularly effective for neuropathic pain syndromes but can also treat other forms of chronic pain.


Ketamine infusions take effect quickly and often succeed where other treatment approaches have failed. If you’re desperate for a solution, a consultation with Sarah at Revival Infusion Madison can help you see the amazing possibilities of ketamine for chronic pain relief.


Ketamine is also highly effective against treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other mental health disorders, all commonly seen alongside chronic pain.
