Ketamine infusion therapy can assist your patient(s) in the reduction of their pain intensity, facilitate rehabilitation and functional recovery. Ketamine can have the additional advantage of reducing your patients need for opioid medication and therefore any associated medication side effects.

More recent research has shown benefit in addiction medicine, in particular opioid and alcohol use disorders.
