Innovative New PTSD Treatment in Knoxville, TN
Nearly 16 million people suffer from depression and more than 7 million are affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The two conditions tend to go hand-in-hand, as those who suffer from PTSD often experience depression in their lives. Nearly twice as many women suffer from depression as men, and even though PTSD is mostly associated with male soldiers coming back from war, any traumatic event such as a car accident or sexual assault can cause the condition.
While there are dozens of medications to treat depression and PTSD, some of which overlap, most merely cover up the problem. Many medications work on the assumption that you don’t have enough serotonin in your brain and if you replace enough of these feel-good hormones, you will feel better. These medications often take weeks to months to work, if they work at all.
Does Ketamine for PTSD Really Work?
Ketamine has now been introduced as a new alternative treatment for those patients that have not responded well to other options for PTSD. One huge benefit of Ketamine infusions over oral medications is that if an individual is going to respond positively to Ketamine, the patient will notice an improvement in his/her symptoms within hours to days rather than weeks to months.
Recent studies at Columbia University and other world-renowned institutions have demonstrated a greater than 70% success rate for treatment of depression and PTSD with low-dose ketamine intravenous infusion therapy. Also, recent research has shown that even a single infusion of Ketamine can cause a rapid decrease in PTSD symptoms and if an individual is going to respond to Ketamine infusions, both the patient and the practitioner will know after 1-2 infusions.
