CRPS/RSD PAIN Q & A
What is CRPS/RSD?
CRPS/RSD is a disease of the autonomic nervous system and the sympathetic nervous system. It causes constant, intense, and severe pain that is disproportionate to the injury that initially caused the pain. In addition to pain, you may experience:
Changes to your skin color and texture
Extreme sensitivity to touch and temperature
Problems with concentration and memory
There are two types of CRPS. Type I follows a minor or secondary nerve injury in the wake of a variety of injuries and illnesses including soft tissue injuries, bone fractures, heart problems, and repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. Type II CRPS involves a definable major nerve injury and requires prompt medical treatment from a specialist to avoid chronic pain and debilitation.
How is CRPS/RSD treated?
Our team uses ketamine IV infusion therapy to treat chronic pain conditions. Ketamine IV infusion therapy works with your neurons to improve your brain function and reduce neurological pain. Many people have effective and long-term pain relief with regular booster treatments following the initial series of ketamine infusion sessions.
What happens during ketamine IV treatment for CRPS/RSD?
A Physician provides extensive consultations to determine if ketamine IV infusion therapy will reduce your pain and improve your overall health and well-being.
The team often sees patients for four-hour high-dose infusions on an as-needed basis. Treatment regimens you receive can vary, but a common course of treatments may be one or more treatments to begin with followed by one or two treatments every six to eight weeks to manage your symptoms.
Some patients maintain their results with as little as a one-hour infusion every eight weeks, although this is after many years of treatment with an Anesthesiologist/Anesthetist.
A Physician carefully monitors you during your IV infusion sessions to ensure all protocols and best practice standards are met so you stay safe, and your treatment is its most effective.

What should I expect from ketamine IV Infusion therapy?
A Physician takes your medical history and provides a comprehensive exam to determine if ketamine IV infusion therapy will reduce your pain or mood disorders. They then draw up an effective treatment plan tailored specially for you.
Depending on the severity of your condition and other medications you are on, they may offer one to six sessions of either high- or low-dose of the ketamine IV infusion.
Based on the plan the Physician draws up for you, you’ll either relax for an hour or four hours per session while having the IV, and spend 20 minutes to two hours recovering afterwards.
Our team works hard to ensure you experience no more than minimal discomfort and side effects through the use of best practice standards.
