IV Infusion Therapy

Direct Medication, Faster Healing

IV (intravenous) infusion therapy is the delivery of medication and nutrition directly into the veins for faster absorption into the bloodstream. Because this is an on-demand, out-patient procedure the freedom to come and go makes infusion therapy a great option that allows for less time in a doctor’s office and more time living life.

IV infusion therapy can be used for a variety of medication deliveries. Depending on your diagnosis and particular needs, your doctor will choose which medication is right for you and the procedures will begin shortly after.

Speaking of the procedure, it’s a fairly straight-forward, minimally invasive process where an intravenous catheter is placed in your arm or hand where the medications are then infused (“dripped”) over a period of time. How much medicine and how long your session depends on your diagnosis and your doctor.

Common IV Infusion Medications

  • Lidocaine. This is a synthetic compound used as a local anesthetic for treating abnormal heart rhythms and contains anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Ketamine. This medication is a synthetic compound used as an anesthetic and analgesic drug to promote muscle relaxation and stress reduction among other things.
  • Clonidine. A multipurpose medication used to treat high blood pressure, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), anxiety, narcotic/drug withdrawal, migraine headaches, and other chronic pain conditions.
  • Magnesium. A vital mineral directly involved with nerve signaling, healthy bone growth, normal muscle contraction, and chronic pain relief through stabilizing abnormal nerves.
