Ketamine Infusion Treatment for Chronic Migraine Headache Attacks

Although a relatively common condition, migraines can be a real problem for many people. According to the World Health Organisation, migraine is the sixth highest cause in the world of years lost from disability. Migraine attacks can become more frequent over time.

Headache experts generally divide this process into four states:

• No migraine
• A low-frequency migraine — fewer than ten ‘headache days’ a month
• A high-frequency migraine — 11-14 ‘headache days’ a month
• A chronic migraine — 15+ ‘headache days’ a month (meaning those suffering from chronic migraine have a headache or a migraine more often than they do not)

A chronic migraine, officially defined as having one or more headaches on 15 or more days a month, where at least eight of those days are migraine headaches — for at least three months or more. While around 12% of the population experience migraines, 1% was found to suffer from chronic migraines. Unfortunately, studies predict that each year, roughly 2.5% of those who experience an episodic migraine will develop a chronic migraine.

Neustart Ketamine Infusions for migraines and chronic headaches

There are many well-recognised, yet potentially treatable risk factors associated with the development of a chronic migraine from an episodic migraine.

These include:
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Other pain disorders
• Obesity
• Asthma
• Snoring
• Stressful life events
• Head and Neck injury
• Acute medication overuse
• Persistent, frequent nausea

Due to its excellent analgesic (pain relief) properties, Ketamine is a highly effective treatment for patients suffering from chronic headache pain. A study revealed that out of sixty one patients receiving Ketamine treatment for a previously untreatable chronic migraine, nearly 75% said that a three to seven day course of inpatient Ketamine Infusion treatment helped relieve them of their pain. Although Ketamine is typically used as a general anaesthetic, it offers incredible pain control when provided in lower doses.

Although recent studies have mainly focused on short-term pain relief, it is believed that Ketamine can help relieve patients of their migraine headache attacks over more extended periods. During various trials, the average pain rating on a scale of zero to ten was 7.5 when the patients were admitted. After receiving Ketamine treatment, this had reduced to 3.4 by the time of discharge.

Neustart Ketamine Infusions can reduce the frequency and intensity of a chronic migraine, with long-lasting effects. Each dose is carefully measured based on each patient’s individual needs and administered in a comfortable and relaxed clinical setting.
