CRPS Treatment

CRPS Treatment that Rewires your Nerves

Relevare is leading the way in custom tailoring infusion treatments to alleviate suffering and help you live your best life. 

Ketamine therapy has been shown to be effective in the treatment of neuropathic pain disorders such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and is a recommended treatment by the RDS foundation

Recently the Netflix special Take Care of Maya highlights how misunderstood this condition is and the inadequacy of traditional healthcare systems at understanding and treating this disorder. 

Dr. Mallek is a board-certified anesthesiologist with over 10 years working with ketamine, as well as other infusions shown to be effective in treating CRPS including Magnesium and Lidocaine. We are comfortable working with the high doses of ketamine needed to treat this condition. 

Symptoms often include:

Ketamine is not the only treatment offered!

During your initial intake, we perform a comprehensive personal review focusing on the biopsychosocial model of medicine.

We strive to find the root cause of your problems and help you with changes in mindset, behavior, and medications/supplements that will allow you to live the life you want.

Other IV Therapy modalities, such as Lidocaine, Magnesium, and more, can be used in conjunction or instead of ketamine depending on your specific situation

Ketamine reverses dysfunctional pain signals in the brain

CRPS is known to cause dysfunction through “wind up” and central sensitization. This means that the brain thinks that leaving pain signaling ON at all times is the new default. Ketamine infusions have been shown to help reverse some of these changes by blocking these signals and allowing the brain a chance to “reset.”

During your ketamine infusion, you will be continuously monitored and the doctor will administer adjuvant IV treatments to optimize your comfort and treatment effectiveness. Ketamine infusion therapy has shown incredible results in treating CRPS when other treatments have failed. In addition to Ketamine, you will receive Magnesium and there is a possibility of Lidocaine infusions being used as well depending on your specific condition. This is all included in the price. 

Relevare is run by an experienced anesthesiologist that feels comfortable treating medically complex patients with multiple medical problems including cardiac and neurologic conditions that might preclude them from receiving treatments in other ketamine clinics.

We want to invite you to learn more about the benefits of Ketamine infusion therapy and discover if you would be a good candidate for the treatment. Contact us today to set up a 15min free phone consultation with Dr. Mallek.

There is Hope

Restore Your Life!

Featured here is an interview with Dr. Prager as he explains the efficacy and science behind intravenous ketamine therapy. He also emphasizes the benefits of receiving treatments from a provider with pharmacological expertise. 

Ketamine is a fast and efficient treatment option for those affected by CRPS.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat CRPS?

Neuropathic pain conditions such as CRPS are a result of improper nerve connections that have developed as a result of nerve injury and/or chronic pain. The body undergoes a process called Central Sensitization. Central Sensitization is when your nociceptive neurons (pain cells) change their default signaling to ON or decrease the threshold needed to turn that pain signal on. “Wind Up” is a phenomenon where the nervous system stays upregulated and persistently reactive. These features make this kind of pain unique and difficult to treat. 

Ketamine prevents Central Sensitization since the drug acts as an antagonist (a blocking agent) at the NMDA receptor. Central Sensitization is primarily mediated by the NMDA receptor. This is why ketamine works when other treatments have failed. Ketamine works by a very different mechanism than opiates and other pain medications. By blocking the NMDA receptor, ketamine rewires the brain (this has been shown through fMRI studies) and starts to repair the signaling so that those nociceptive neurons (pain cells) change their default signaling back to OFF.

During Your Ketamine Infusion

Ketamine infusions for pain require doses much higher than those for mental illness, about two to six times higher, and infusions tend to last longer, typically ranging from two to four hours.

You will be continuously monitored in a private room throughout your treatment to ensure you remain safe and comfortable throughout your treatment session. The most common side effects, nausea, and dissociation (a feeling of being out of body) are typically easily treated with adjuvant medications.

The longer the infusions the longer the recovery, but not by much. Once the infusion finishes it will generally take anywhere from ten to thirty minutes for the patient to start feeling like the psychoactive effects of the drug are gone. The beneficial effects of the infusion should be evident as soon as the infusion is finished.

During your intake, we will explain more about the process, set expectations, and answer all of your questions.
