According to a National Institutes of Health report, over 30% of American adults experience anxiety or an anxiety-related disorder. Commonly used medications can cause unpleasant side effects – and according to Healthline, are not effective for 50% of patients. As such, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington is now offering ketamine therapy for those who have not found relief from traditional treatments.

FDA-approved and backed by emerging research, ketamine therapy can provide relief to patients who have struggled to manage chronic anxiety, says Dr. Otono Silva, founder of Interventional Orthopedics of Washington.
Ketamine, traditionally used as an anesthetic, has gained traction in recent years due to its potential in treating mental health disorders. In 2019, the FDA approved ketamine in a sub-anesthetic dose for the treatment of depression and suicidal ideation. The Anxiety & Depression Association of America recently reported that ketamine therapy can provide a fast-acting option for patients dealing with anxiety who have not responded to conventional SSRI or SNRI medications.
Interventional Orthopedics of Washington offers intravenous, intramuscular, intranasal, and oral ketamine therapy for patients suffering from anxiety disorders. The therapy lasts anywhere from one hour to three hours – and is administered on-site and in the care of trained professionals.
The clinic offers ketamine therapy for a wide range of mental and physical health issues including fibromyalgia, severe depression, OCD, and eating disorders.
