Now treating those suffering from fibromyalgia, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington will assess each patient to create a custom care plan that addresses their condition at its source.
The clinic’s lead practitioner and founder Dr. Silva has been certified by the Washington State Medical Association and the American Academy of Orthopedic Medicine. Across multiple consultations, Dr. Silva’s team will undertake thorough evaluations of the patient’s ailment, their medical and psychiatric history, and their physical health, as well as conduct psychological testing to ensure that ketamine is the appropriate course of treatment. Infusions will be administered in a controlled and monitored session, producing mild anesthetic and anxiolytic effects.
While immediate therapeutic effects can last between 1 and 3 hours, continued and strategized treatments can provide lasting relief from mental health issues and chronic pain disorders that have proved resistant to more conventional treatments.
Ketamine Treatment for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition. Sufferers of the condition often find their symptoms worsen with stress, emotional trauma, or physical injury. It is thought to be caused by chemical imbalances in the brain and nervous system that trigger sensitivity in the pain receptors throughout the body.
Without causing psychedelic effects, the center’s low-dose ketamine therapy options for home use can block these pain receptors and can promote neural plasticity, offering patients an enhanced ability to learn new behaviors, recover from physical and emotional trauma, and improve cognitive function. Fibromyalgia has high rates of comorbidity with depression, anxiety, and chronic migraine disorders, all of which have shown similar positive results in ketamine treatment trials in the past few years.
