What Is IV Therapy?
Infusion therapy, also called IV therapy, is a procedure that delivers medication or IV hydration intravenously, meaning through your veins. The IV treatment is administered directly into your bloodstream by a board-certified pain doctor at the pain center NY.
When you’re not able to take medicine orally or you need it to take effect quickly, IV infusion treatments are the way doctors get it into your body. These days, the pain management doctors in NYC offer IV hydration using the same principle when you’ve become dehydrated or need fast relief.
Medication, vitamins or minerals — depending on what you need — are diluted in saline and injected through a needle or a catheter straight into your bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the medication or vitamins can be metabolized and used almost immediately.
IV infusion is the fastest way to administer certain drugs. So the time it takes to feel the effects of the medicine is greatly reduced. The vitamins are introduced quickly and move through your body just as fast.
What Is IV Therapy Used For?
Busy schedules require you to be on the go, all the time. With IV hydration, a little time in the IV infusion therapy chair at your Manhattan pain treatment clinic gets you back to your routine in no time. And you’re well cared for while at the clinic.
IV hydration therapy is used to combat and reduce the effects of several conditions. Some people use it as an added practice to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Others use it as a recovery tool after a long travel day, after a fun night on the town or following a hectic schedule that takes a toll on your body. Your doctors at Pain Management NYC advise you on the best protocols for your specific goals and needs.
Some indications for IV therapy include:
- Chronic pain
- Dehydration due to flu or overexertion
- Jet lag
- Food poisoning
How Does IV Infusion Therapy Work?
IV therapy is prescribed and performed by a licensed physician or nurse practitioner at your pain management clinic in Midtown. It’s a minimally invasive procedure to insert needed medication or vitamins directly into your bloodstream. And when done properly at your top-rated pain control clinic, the risks and complications are minimal.
After taking a detailed medical history and examination, your top infusion therapy doctors in NYC may suggest that you get infusion treatments. Make sure you tell your pain doctor about your lifestyle, medications and allergies. Also let him know if you have an aversion to needles.
There are a few conditions that eliminate you from getting IV hydration therapy, such as:
- Congestive heart failure
- Certain medications
- Some allergies
The Process for IV Therapy Procedure
There aren’t many pre-procedure precautions because most of the time, IV infusion therapy just replenishes your body with water, Vitamin C, zinc and B-complex vitamins. Depending on your individual needs and medical history, other vitamins and minerals may be added or removed.
IV hydration therapy is done under a sterile environment from start to finish so that the risk of infection is reduced. The top-rated pain clinic in NYC makes sure to prevent risks that could include bruising or clots.
You’re seated comfortably while your doctor find a suitable vein, cleans it with alcohol, and starts an intravenous line. An IV bag with the hydration therapy solution made specifically for you then is attached and your infusion begins.
How Long Does Infusion Therapy Take?
The IV therapy procedure takes very little time away from your day, and you feel the effects almost immediately. Some people feel rejuvenated, rehydrated, replenished and ready to go in just a few hours. You may leave the office with a band-aid or compression bandage.
IV infusion therapy is a way to get a healthy portion of the water and nutrients you need every day. Although not medicine and not a cure-all, it can help your body replenish what you lose from sickness, over-exertion or grueling sports activities. You should make sure to do your part by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a nutritional diet.
But when you need a little extra help, IV infusion therapy can give you that extra boost you need. Get yours today by contacting Pain Management NYC.
