Ketamine Injections

One of the main procedures we provide and specialize in is ketamine injections. Approved in the 1970s and commonly used as anesthesia, in low-doses ketamine acts as a powerful pain killer — especially for a wide variety of neuropathic conditions. It’s also quite useful when it comes to treatment-resistant pain conditions and can effectively treat conditions that are difficult to relieve. It is also possible that ketamine usage before and immediately after surgery may eliminate the need to use opioids as painkillers. In addition to all of these perks, ketamine has also been shown to reduce symptoms of depression, making it a very wide-ranging treatment for many conditions.

Ketamine is used extensively in adverse conditions like war fields and mass casualty situations, but research is ongoing on ketamine’s effects and usage. We are committed to continuing research on the usage of ketamine and its impact on the body. We have a dedicated Ketamine suite where patients safely receive ketamine injections and have already treated over 8,000 patients with this pain-killer. If you are struggling with chronic pain, ketamine injections might be the solution that provides you with comfort. Ask your doctor about the Center for Pain Management today!


Intrathecal Pumps

Constructed from non-allergenic metals, intrathecal pumps provide an access point for pain medication to be delivered to the space between the spinal cord and the protective sheath (also known as the cerebrospinal fluid). This pump is used to inject medications like baclofen, morphine, and ziconotide, all of which are approved by the FDA for intrathecal injection. Other pain medications such as hydromorphone and bupivacaine may also be injected using an intrathecal pump. Due to the nature of the injection site when utilizing an intrathecal pump, this method for injections allows for the use of a lower dosage when compared with oral administration. The lower dose helps to reduce the side effects of pain-killing medication and eliminate the pain without as much reduction in operating ability.

If you or a loved one are struggling with a condition like cerebral palsy or multiple sclerosis or are struggling with chronic pain caused by cancer, an intrathecal pump might be the right solution for you. While an intrathecal pump does require a little bit of maintenance to operate properly, it is still a great solution for those who are looking for the capability to receive pain medication frequently for a chronic condition. Ask your doctor about whether or not an intrathecal pump is a good pain management treatment for you! If you have questions about an intrathecal pump, contact the Center for Pain Management today!


Low-Dose Naltrexone

For those suffering from alcohol and opioid dependency as well as chronic pain, low-dose Naltrexone (LDN) can be an effective treatment to manage your symptoms. LDN is an off-label, non-opioid option for those looking for treatment and, as a result, the risk of side effects for LDN is lower when compared with other chronic pain treatments. It is most commonly utilized to treat neuropathic conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and diabetic neuropathy. LDN is a pure inhibitor, meaning there is no narcotic effect and its chemical structure is closest to an endorphin called met-enkephalin that naturally occurs in our body.

You may have heard about the effects of a full dose of naltrexone, but LDN works quite differently than full-dose naltrexone. LDN blocks opioid receptors just like a full dose of naltrexone, but after blocking receptors, it triggers your body to release endorphins that naturally kill pain in your body, producing a similar pain-killing result to opioids. This reaction also promotes healing and limits inflammation. As someone suffering from chronic pain, LDN might be the right treatment for you. If it is, the Center for Pain Relief can help! Ask your doctor about receiving LDN for your chronic pain today!

While ketamine, intrathecal pumps, and LDN are three of the most common treatments we deliver, as one of the best pain centers in New Jersey, we specialize in dozens of other chronic pain treatments to help relieve your symptoms.
