WHAT IS KETAMINE?

Ketamine is a medicine that doctors have used for a long time, mostly to make people sleep during surgery. But now, they’re finding out it can help the brain in other ways, especially after an injury.


HOW MIGHT KETAMINE HELP WITH BRAIN INJURIES?

Ketamine can help by:

  1. Reducing Pain: It can help with headaches and other pains that come after a brain injury.
  2. Helping with Mood: Sometimes, it can make people feel less sad or worried after an injury.
  3. Improving Brain Function: Some doctors think it might help the brain work better after an injury.

WHAT IS LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY?

This therapy can help by:

  1. Reducing Inflammation: It can help with swelling in the brain.
  2. Promoting Healing: The light might help the brain heal itself.
  3. Improving Function: It could help with problems like memory or focus after an injury.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THESE TREATMENTS?

People who might benefit include:

  • Those with long-lasting problems after a brain injury.
  • People who haven’t gotten better with other treatments.
