Treatment for Headaches & Migraines

A new study has found that Ketamine Therapy can provide some relief to patients with migraine who have been unable to find an effective treatment.

The medication, ketamine (a glutamate antagonist), is currently being trialled in the US and UK for its potential use against chronic pain conditions like this one- but more research needs be done before doctors can start prescribing it on par as their current treatments.

Standard benefits:
- Ketamine can be used to treat chronic migraines and headaches.
- You'll feel better more quickly than with other treatments.
Emotional benefits:
- Get your life back on track with ketamine therapy.
- No more suffering from debilitating pain.

In the U.S., more than 38 million people suffer from migraines. Some migraine studies estimate that 13 percent of adults in the U.S. population have migraines, and 2-3 million migraine suffers are chronic. Almost 5 million in the U.S. experience at least one migraine attack per month, while more than 11 million people blame migraines for causing moderate to severe disability.

Ketamine infusion therapy may hold promise as a treatment for migraine headaches in patients who have failed other treatments,” said study co-author Eric Schwenk, M.D., director of orthopedic anesthesia at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. “Our study focused only on short-term relief, but it is encouraging that this treatment might have the potential to help patients long-term. Our work provides the basis for future, prospective studies that involve larger numbers of patients.”
