Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis, affecting more than 1.3 million Americans, mostly women. The condition can severely compromise the patient’s quality of life and stop them from performing various physical activities to their full potential.
Ketamine infusion therapy is a promising breakthrough treatment to achieve relief from pain and swelling, which are the common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The prolific and awesome Dr. Steven Mandel of Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles provides ketamine infusion treatments to patients in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Orange County, California, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in the geographical region of SoCal.
Many patients who have tried a number of failed treatments for their RA related pain and swelling are pleasantly surprised when they go through ketamine therapy as an innovative solution for their painful symptoms. After a few ketamine treatments, many patients report significant reduction in their pain and swelling, and their full functionality and active life is restored.
Media has been reporting about remarkable cases where patients have been able to find relief from chronic RA symptoms, and restore motion and function of various joints, while eliminating pain, stiffness, and swelling. Feedback from many patients suggests that for years they have suffered from worsening RA symptoms, and none of the conventional medications, including oral and IV drugs over the years, have been able to provide sustainable relief.
In many cases, a promising medication may help initially, but gradually become ineffective. After losing hope, when such patients relied on ketamine infusion therapy as a solution for their rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, they found a long-term benefit.
The ketamine expert will determine a customized ketamine infusion therapy plan after considering the patient’s extent of RA symptoms and their general health condition and pain tolerance. In some cases, a 10-day IV infusion of ketamine may be recommended, with almost immediate results. A salient plan will aim to mitigate aches and pains from the root by working on joint stiffness and swelling.
Patients who go through a ketamine therapy program not only report pain relief, but also experience higher energy levels. They regain their confidence to perform various types of physical tasks, and engage with a greater enthusiasm in social and professional settings.
Choosing the Right Candidate
A ketamine specialist would choose the right candidate who is suffering from debilitating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and has failed to achieve satisfactory results with conventional RA therapies that include oral anti-inflammatory medications and other IV infusions prescribed by the rheumatologist.
Researchers have found that ketamine infusion therapy can be useful in fighting the pain related symptoms of various autoimmune diseases such as MS and lichen sclerosis. That encouraged them to use the same therapy for rheumatoid arthritis with successful results.
Patients suffering from fibromyalgia, CRPS, rheumatoid arthritis, inclusion-body myositis, phantom limb pain, chronic Lyme disease, treatment-resistant depression, and PTSD can make profound candidates for ketamine if they have not been able to get relief with conventional therapies.
