Ketamine Infusion Therapy reduces the painful symptoms of a variety of chronic pain syndromes, including but not limited to:
- Chronic Migraines
- Neuropathic pain
- Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS, formerly known as RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)
- Lyme disease
Dr. Grindle is very experienced in treating chronic pain syndromes. In fact, he spent years practicing full-time interventional pain management earlier in his career, in California. He attained his second board-certification in Pain Management through the American Board of Anesthesiology in 1998. He surgically implanted spinal cord stimulators, intraspinal morphine pumps, & performed radiofrequency rhizotomies and intradiscal nucleoplasties. He has a long history of experience providing ketamine infusions for chronic pain.
At our two clinic locations in Boulder and Fort Collins, Dr. Grindle utilizes Ketamine Infusion Therapy to help patients suffering from select chronic pain syndromes. These infusions are typically of a higher dosage and longer duration than infusions for mood disorders. They can provide substantial relief when other modalities have failed, such as oral analgesics, steroid injections, nerve blocks, and physical therapy. One of the distinct advantages of Ketamine therapy for chronic pain is that it reduces the need for opiate/narcotic pain medication, and can also be used to help detox patients off narcotics, and eliminate cravings. The CDC states that in 2018, 128 Americans died every day from an opiate overdose. Many of these victims of the opiate epidemic began their addiction from a legitimate narcotic prescription for chronic pain. Ketamine therapy can thus help combat the opiate crisis and prevent overdoses. Many patients with chronic pain also suffer from depression, thus, ketamine therapy addresses both issues in these individuals.
