POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

In choosing this link, you or your loved one may have PTSD with or without Chronic Pain. Here at SKC, we truly understand your suffering, and our mission is to help you emerge from the grasp of your illness.

Almost 10% of the US adult population will have PTSD during their lifetime. This pervasive and debilitating condition is often very difficult to treat, even in expert hands, and Substance Abuse Disorder can compound the severity of this illness. Disturbing thoughts, feelings and dreams while experiencing a chronic “fight or flight” state may have become you or your loved one’s unfortunate reality. Combat veterans (77% of wounded veterans have PTSD), victims of domestic physical or mental abuse, as well as those who have been sexually assaulted, may benefit from Ketamine Infusion Therapy.

Ketamine and its metabolites have been shown to have unique and diverse effects, binding to multiple receptors in the central nervous system, inhibiting some and activating others. This often provides relief within an hour after an infusion. PTSD symptom control is often sustained for many weeks following an SKC Induction Series to initially “knock down” the symptoms by modifying the neural pathways associated with traumatic events.

As many as 75-80% of people with PTSD have a significant improvement in their mood within hours of an infusion. PTSD often goes hand in hand with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). If you also have Substance Abuse Disorder, your condition is very likely to improve as well. We work closely will all referring physicians to facilitate communication with the goal of SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING YOUR SYMPTOMS, and transitioning you to SKC Maintenance Therapy for sustained relief.

Following the completion of an SKC Induction Series, the SKC patient then engages in ongoing SKC Maintenance Therapy at a custom frequency that provides the level of relief to optimize daily function in one’s life. Many choose the SKC Wellness Plan to enhance and sustain their PTSD symptom reduction in a more detailed and custom-tailored manner, while lowering cost per treatment.

If PTSD has you paralyzed and hypervigilant, please take the next step towards the new and much happier life you deserve by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Watson or Dr. Frey to determine if you are a candidate. We will work in concert with your regular physician, should you have one, to ensure you have the best chance of success with Ketamine therapy.
