You might be a candidate if: 
  • You’ve been formally diagnosed with a chronic pain condition

  • You’re open to attending mental health counseling before and after a therapy

  • You understand that this treatment is outside of the coverage of insurance

 

If you have been diagnosed with a chronic pain condition, you know how unique and individual the pain experience is. You might feel stabbing pains, a dull ache or various other combinations and forms of pain. Chronic pain can even get worse with time, and the medications used to treat it can come with unbearable side effects. 

 

For decades, physicians and providers have been limited to the types of medications they have been able to prescribe for chronic pain, with potentially addictive and dangerous medications being the most common types prescribed. 

 

Tracy Richard and the Wyoming Wellness Center take a more modern, patient-focused approach to chronic pain management with ketamine therapy, Buprenorphine therapy, 5-point ear acupuncture, myofascial release, massage therapy, and other non-habit-forming treatment types. 

 

Ketamine works by blocking specific types of pain receptors in your brain and resetting some of the nerve cells in your spinal cord and brain. Ketamine treatments are more effective at reducing certain types of pain than others.

 

The Wyoming Wellness Center considers candidates for ketamine treatments for the following types of pain: 
  • Headaches and migraines

  • Post-surgical pain

  • Back pain

  • Cancer pain

  • Arthritis pain

  • Neurogenic pain

  • Psychogenic pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Neuropathic pain

  • Complex regional pain syndrome

  • Traumatic spinal cord injury

 

Your provider will work with you to formulate a treatment plan that will help treat your chronic pain and enhance your overall wellness.

 

While ketamine is a powerful treatment option, it isn’t right for everyone. Your provider may not recommend ketamine treatments if you have a fast heart rate, high blood pressure, certain bladder conditions, moderate to severe heart conditions,  a history of uncontrolled seizures, or certain types of head injuries. Ketamine is contraindicated in pregnancy.
