Central Sensitization and Ketamine
By now, we should all be aware of the prevalence of chronic pain. Astonishingly though, few people are aware of the central pathophysiology of why people develop chronic pain. Central sensitization is one of the key processes in which chronic pain persists. In this presentation, we will explore central sensitization, what it is, what it means, and what can be done to reduce it. We will also discuss ketamine, which has emerged as one of the most useful compounds currently available to mitigate central sensitization. This staple lecture at PAINWeek is a must for anyone who wants to learn about central pain conditions. Dr. Joshi, the presenter of this lecture, helped create the current outpatient protocols and philosophies on outpatient ketamine infusions. Ketamine as a treatment is becoming more popular. This lecture will help you learn top level information from one of the leading experts with ketamine infusions and central sensitization in the country so you can help your patients and evaluate legitimate ketamine infusion centers.
