Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disorder of the nervous system characterized by an uncontrollable urge to move your legs. This often feels like an itch, tingling, or creeping sensation in the legs that a person cannot find relief for.
RLS affects somewhere around 4% of children and 10% of adults in the United States. Without proper treatment, these symptoms can make everyday life a daunting task.

The Science Behind IV Ketamine
Ketamine has been used worldwide for decades both as a safe anesthetic and rapid pain reliever. Research in the last two decades indicates that ketamine, administered safely via a series of infusions, may relieve the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions within hours. This is compared to the weeks or months oral antidepressants may take before relief is felt.
Researchers are still looking to determine the exact method of action with IV ketamine infusions. One theory proposes that it stimulates the regrowth of synapses – effectively “rewiring” the brain.
Another promising avenue of research into its effects indicates that it acts on glutamate, an important neurotransmitter that affects how synapses change and learn. This is called neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change and learn. This could explain ketamine’s strong effect on mood and pain disorders.
The symptoms of RLS can be difficult to cope with during your everyday life, but with the right treatment, relief is possible. Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic and painkiller for half a century but is now a powerful treatment for chronic pain conditions like RLS.
By interacting with the NMDA receptor in the nervous system and other receptors, ketamine can affect the amounts of pain you experience. Additionally, ketamine is known to help treat several of the other side effects linked to RLS like depression or fatigue.
