IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV or intravenous therapy is a fast and effective way of getting vitamins, minerals, health supplements, and fluids into your body. Team members at Pain Care Providers have clinical expertise in using IV therapy to boost nutrition and treat dehydration. Under their care, IV therapy is a safe and simple treatment that can increase your energy levels and improve your overall health.

You receive IV therapy through a line in your arm. Your practitioner inserts a needle into a vein, and the fluid drips slowly through the small tube directly into your vein. This means that all the nutrients are available to your body straight away.

When you eat and drink, it takes time for your body to absorb the nutrients and rehydrate your tissues. Some of the nutrients in your food won’t be available to you through digestion, but with IV therapy, everything goes straight where it’s most needed.

The IV cocktails used at Pain Care Providers all contain:

  • Electrolytes
  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Antioxidants

There are a range of specialist IV cocktails available, or your practitioner at Pain Care Providers can create a custom cocktail to suit your needs. Add-on boosts are also available.

What conditions can IV therapy treat?

IV therapy at Pain Care Providers can treat a wide range of health conditions, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Colds and flu
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Jet lag
  • Hangovers
  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Migraines

IV therapy is also helpful for post-surgical recovery, helping to boost healing and tissue growth. It’s also a valuable aid when recovering from food poisoning, and plays a significant role in reducing the effects of aging.

What effects does IV therapy have?

IV therapy gives your body a powerful boost of nutrition and hydration that can have significant effects on your health. The results you can expect after treatment vary according to which cocktail you have, but examples of the benefits of IV therapy include:

  • Boosting the immune system
  • Detoxification
  • Tissue renewal
  • Increased libido
  • Reducing hay fever symptoms
  • Improved digestive health
  • Fighting chronic infections
  • Easing fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Healthier skin and hair
  • Increased mental focus
  • Improved wound healing
  • Reduced inflammation 

When you attend your consultation at Pain Care Providers, your practitioner takes time to go over your medical history and current health, to ensure your IV therapy contains all the micronutrients you need. If you require a combination of ingredients that aren’t already provided, your practitioner creates the blend especially for you. 

What are IV therapy add-ons?

Add-ons are extra treatment boosts you can add to IV therapy. Antioxidants like glutathione play a vital role in promoting health and protecting you from the effects of aging by reducing radical damage. Other add-ons you could have include:

  • Lipoic acid
  • Pain medication
  • Anti-nausea medication
  • Vitamin C

When you attend your IV therapy session at Pain Care Providers, you simply relax like you would at the spa. You can enjoy the therapeutic visuals provided by virtual reality technology, and imagine you’re somewhere idyllic like a deserted beach or a flower-filled meadow.

After IV treatment, you should feel revitalized and full of positive energy, ready to tackle anything. If you’d like to benefit from IV therapy, call Pain Care Providers today or book an appointment online.
