Anxiety disorders are a collection of mental health conditions characterized by intense fear and worry. Generalized anxiety disorder is the most common type of the condition and causes persistent and excessive concerns that disrupt your daily activities. You may also experience other symptoms, including:
Other types of anxiety include panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias.
Many factors contribute to your risk of developing an anxiety disorder including your genetics and other medical factors. However, your brain chemistry also plays a significant role. Genetic factors, trauma, and stress can influence your hormones, neurotransmitters, and brain structure that can make you react to triggers that may not have caused anxiety before.
At Rise Wellness Centers, the team creates personalized treatment plans for anxiety that include ketamine infusion therapy. When delivered as an infusion, ketamine inhibits your NMDA receptors, which contribute to mood regulation and other mental health issues.
Many patients have found that ketamine infusion therapy effectively relieves their anxiety symptoms. You may find that in addition to symptom relief, ketamine infusion therapy provides mental clarity that allows you to direct your energy toward resolving underlying issues contributing to your anxiety in therapy sessions.
Ketamine infusion is a therapeutic and relaxing treatment. You rest in a comfortable chair while receiving the ketamine infusion through an IV. The infusion takes approximately 60 minutes.
Unlike other medications used to treat anxiety, a ketamine infusion delivers the medicine directly to your bloodstream, enabling your body to absorb more of the active ingredients. This provides more rapid symptom relief and can help you engage more actively with your life and find day-to-day tasks less stressful.
You may experience a floating or tingling sensation during your treatment, and these side effects usually subside soon after your infusion is complete. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home when you’re done.
