The updated treatments have been proven to increase well-being in as many as 70 to 80% of patients with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, a psychological condition that affects some people after experiencing a particularly stressful event. These events can involve actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence. Symptoms of PTSD vary but usually include traumatic memories, distressing dreams, dissociative reactions, prolonged psychological distress, and marked physiological responses.
Thrive IV’s ketamine IV infusion therapy treats PTSD by helping regenerate the synaptic nerve connections between brain cells damaged by stress and depression. First, patients are made comfortable in calming rooms with soft recliners, easy lighting, and soothing music. Then, depending on the treatment plan, they are administered either a low- or high-dose of ketamine over a period ranging anywhere from 40 minutes to 4 hours.
Thrive IV’s Dr. Michael Pellegrino is board-certified and determines each patient’s treatment plan after an initial consultation and review of referral forms. Most patients start with six infusions over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. As the treatment plan progresses, the doctor may adjust dosage levels. They might also add medications, vitamins, and other nutrients to maintain or enhance the positive effects of the infusions.
Each patient’s response to treatment is different. However, most patients typically see results after the initial series of infusions. “we set up boosters as needed over the following weeks to months, based on how each patient feels the need.”
“Dr. Pellegrino and his staff have helped me tremendously,” said a satisfied patient. “He is extremely knowledgeable and accessible to his patients. He has provided me with the best and most useful medical care I have received in my life. Ketamine therapy helped me where traditional medicine had failed, and I am eternally grateful for that.”
