How Do Ketamine Treatments for Chronic Pain Work?
Ketamine works directly on the brain by blocking certain pain receptors and creating new neural pathways and synapses. For chronic pain, this can mean relief from some or all symptoms and aid in the healing process.
This pain relief, coupled with its effectiveness and lack of side effects, has made it a forerunner for non-traditional pain treatment. In fact, the FDA is taking notice and ketamine is on the path to being approved for first-line treatment of chronic pain and drug-resistant depression.

Benefits of Ketamine Treatments for Chronic Pain
Ketamine treatments are gaining popularity in Wyoming and across the United States because of they may decrease your need for opioids and painkillers, offer long-lasting pain relief, and may improve your quality of life.
Decreased Need for Opioids and Painkillers
One of the biggest benefits of ketamine for chronic pain treatment is the decreased need for opioid painkillers. Long-term opioid use can lead to complications, increased tolerance, or addiction. If you suffer from chronic pain, ketamine might be a great alternative to these traditional medications. Additionally, the relief from ketamine comes quickly and continues to last long beyond your treatment. Ketamine restores neural pathways, which can lead to long-term relief. It also helps to block pain pathways, allowing for relief from pain.
Increased Quality of Life
The relief from ketamine can affect other areas of your life. Chronic pain may rob you of sleep, make it hard to work or attend functions, and affect your relationships. Depression, anxiety, loss of enjoyment, and other emotional factors can be linked to chronic pain. Ketamine treatments are a safe, non-addictive way to treat ongoing chronic pain, while also helping to alleviate the emotional effects of the pain.
Long-Lasting Pain Relief
This relief is long-lasting. Research finds that up to 80% of patients respond favorably to ketamine infusion therapy. 60-70% of patients show symptom relief after just one infusion, while 70-80% of patients display symptom improvement after undergoing a three-week or longer treatment regime. Your provider will work with you to determine a customized treatment plan for your pain management.

Required Initial Medical Evaluation for all Ketamine Therapy Clients $250-$300
Your consultation consists of a history and physical and is considered an evaluation interview and exam. The investment is $250 unless a more extensive work-up is needed (consultation with PCP, Labs, extensive review of multiple medical records, etc.), at which point your investment will be $300
Investment: $250-300 Initial Consultation
Ketamine Intravenous Infusion for Chronic Pain
Your ketamine IV treatment for chronic pain will last for five hours (3-hour infusion and at least a 1-hour recovery), and we require a minimum of three treatments. For most chronic pain patients, we recommend a plan of six treatments over 3 to 6 weeks.
Our staff at Wyoming Wellness Center recognize that every patient is unique and that individual responses to ketamine treatments will vary. Your individual symptoms, needs, and goals of care will determine your course of treatment.
For most chronic pain patients, we recommend a plan of six treatments; however, we will tailor a plan to you, based on severity of your symptoms, medical history, etc.
Investment: $750 per infusion
After your IV treatment plan is completed, you will come back for “booster” infusions on an as-needed basis, based on your symptoms and perceptions of returning pain. Typically, patients return every 4-6 weeks, sometimes longer.
Investment: $750 per Booster
After your IV treatments, you may be able to transition to at-home oral ketamine troche, (pronounced “trokey”). A troche is a small, waxy tablet designed to dissolve slowly over 10 minutes or so when placed under the tongue, much like a cough drop.. If possible, a transition may be made to troches, which will decrease the number of IV “boosters” you may need. This will require a 20-minute office or telehealth visit monthly to address any changes and send out a new monthly Ketamine troches prescription.
Investment: $50 per Visit (In-Office or Telehealth) + Prescription Price.
We accept credit/debit cards, cash, or cashiers checks made payable to Wyoming Wellness Center. HSA and FSA health spending accounts can also be used to pay for ketamine therapy services.
