CBS News Features Dr. Ashraf Hanna Describing How IV Ketamine is Successfully Treating Fibromyalgia Pain Patients
Date:1/8/2016

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fibromyalgia affects millions of people from all over the world. It can have many symptoms, including depression and low energy levels. But pain -- often throughout the body -- is the main problem. Patients often have pain in their muscles and joints, and they always feel tired. Many people with fibromyalgia have trouble persuading doctors that their pain is real. Some of the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia are the same as those of other diseases.

As a result, doctors often have trouble recognizing and confirming the presence of the disease. Many patients often suffer for years before being diagnosed as shown on a recent CBS News show on January 8th, 2016.

The segment featured a patient whose life had been drastically affected because of constant, debilitating chronic pain. The patient, Kathryn Barber, former president of a large international corporation, had tried many failed treatments, was bedridden and had to give up her corporate life. The story goes on to show how IV Ketamine changed her life dramatically, and she has had amazing results.

"I was suffering from widespread chronic pain and fatigue for 25 years, and after a very long time, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2007. During this time, I was bedridden and did not have a functional life. My pain was managed with medication, but this did not help my condition. Finally, in 2014, I began IV Ketamine treatment at the Florida Spine Institute with Dr. Hanna in Clearwater, Florida. This treatment has virtually eliminated my fibromyalgia pain and need for pain medication. It has given me back a quality of life and increased energy to do things I hadn't done in years," said Kathryn.

Dr. Ashraf Hanna, a board certified physician and director of pain management at the Florida Spine Institute in Clearwater, Florida treated the patient and spoke about the treatment during the show.

"We are very proud and extremely happy to provide IV Ketamine treatment to fibromyalgia patients that have tried many other failed treatments. These patients are really suffering, and many have lost hope. We are able to reduce pain levels dramatically for many patients. Just seeing Kathryn's remarkable recovery is a blessing for us all," stated Dr. Hanna.

"IV Ketamine blocks receptors in the brain that are responsible for releasing chemicals that cause inflammation of the nervous system that in turn can cause fibromyalgia pain symptoms. What makes our program different is that we incorporate physical and psychotherapy so that we not only improve pain, but also improve function, and we have seen amazing results," stated Dr. Hanna

Dr. Hanna continues: "The Florida Spine Institute offers multi-disciplinary treatment modalities from IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy for CRPS/RSD, fibromyalgia and lyme disease, simple acupuncture, physical therapy, a comprehensive wellness program, medication management, and interventional pain management procedures. We can customize the right treatment for each patient instead of being limited to only one minimally-invasive procedure like laser spine surgery."
