How does a stellate ganglion block help with PTSD?

Studies show that a series of ketamine infusions can help with depression, PTSD, fibromyalgia, CRPS, neuropathies, chronic migraines, pain from spinal cord injury, and phantom limb pain.

The success rate can be as much as Ketamine has been shown to help even when other medications and treatments have failed. Ketamine is an NMDA receptor blocker. It works differently from narcotics and antidepressants. For depression and PTSD, ketamine works by allowing new connections to form in your brain. The positive ketamine effects continue to work even after the infusion.
For painful conditions, ketamine, can reset the central nervous system, which include the spinal cord and brain. After exposure to pain, especially chronic pain, your nerves, your spinal cord, and even your brain “change” to be more susceptible to pain.
Ketamine is recommended to be given at least twice a week in the 1st month. After a month, the team at Southwest Pain may be able to reduce the frequency of infusions to once a week and later to once a month or even longer.
For depression, you must still continue to take your current antidepressants. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, seizures/epilepsy, or angina/heart disease, please let the team at Southwest Pain Management know because ketamine may be contraindicated.
If your insurance has coverage for Spravato ketamine nasal spray, the providers may be able to offer you this spray in-office, which has been approved for medication-resistant depression.
Ketamine infusions are currently not covered by any insurance plan. Please note that you will have to pay out-of-pocket for these.
Ketamine treatments may be right for you. Come see the experts at Southwest Pain Management to discuss ketamine therapy.
