Advanced Pain Institute

Dr. Minehart is proud to offer ketamine infusion therapy. If you have tried alternative modalities including pain medications, physical therapy, chiropractor, epidurals, or even homeopathic therapy and still suffer from pain, ketamine infusion could be your solution.  IV ketamine is a widely used therapeutic treatment for a variety of conditions including chronic pain, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The treatment with ketamine involves delivering a controlled dosage via a subcutaneous route where it enters the subcutaneous space and is slowly absorbed into the bloodstream. This procedure is carried out over a period of 2-3 hours where you will be carefully monitored for any adverse events. Studies on the use of ketamine have previously shown considerable analgesic benefits and significant diminution of pain. Contact Dr. Minehart today for a consultation where he will determine if you are a good candidate for ketamine infusion therapy.

Hip Pain Q & A

Hip pain can occur due to a variety of reasons, from diseases, injuries and conditions in other areas of the body. These include:
  • Sprains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Arthritis
  • Hip fractures
  • Cancerous growths

Typically, hip pain occurs on the inside of the hip or groin area. When it is from the outside of the hip, the outer buttock region or the upper thigh, these typically stem from issues with ligaments, tendons, muscles or other tissues around the hip joint.

For minor hip pain, the sensation can go away on its own but for those seeking immediate relief there are options like the following:

  • Applying hot or cold compresses
  • Over the counter pain relievers
  • Avoiding strenuous activities and positions
  • Resting

If there is no pain relief, then consult a physician. Contact I. Michael Minehart, M.D. at the Advanced Pain Institute and schedule an appointment.

If your pain is impairing your physical functions, negatively impacting your daily life and making ordinary activities challenging, then seek professional medical care. Reach out to I. Michael Minehart, M.D. at the Advanced Pain Institute, offering quality treatment options, including:
