What Is IV Therapy?

IV Therapy is a method where you use an intravenous provider to get medication, nutrients, and other fluids into your body. By going directly through your venous system, your body can process these fluids a lot more quickly, compared to taking them via pills or absorbing them through your body.

But by using your veins as the delivery system, any drugs or liquids that you need distributing throughout your system are delivered to those areas more efficiently, so you get the most out of your treatment in less time. It’s basically boosting your body’s ability to process whatever you put into it, which can be useful for many conditions.

Traditionally, only medical treatments qualified for IV therapy since medication needed an efficient delivery into the system for life-threatening conditions or emergencies. But now, you can also use it as a general wellness treatment to improve your quality of life.

What Are The Benefits Of IV Therapy?

If you’re getting IV therapy, it’s important to understand the benefits that you can get from your treatment. It’s one of the most flexible treatment options you can get for a variety of conditions, but if you want to learn how exactly it can make a difference in your quality of life, you’ll need a primer on why this treatment is so great.

Suitable For Medical And Wellness Concerns

IV therapy doesn’t discriminate with the compound that it injects into your bloodstream, which means it can work for medical and wellness concerns alike. It doesn’t matter if you’re using it to get more vitamins into your life, recovering from a serious illness, or simply just need more hydration – IV therapy can work for you.

Easy And Convenient Treatment

All you need to do for IV treatment is to show up to your appointment and be assessed for a few minutes, then you can start on your treatment immediately! You can read or watch something on your phone while the IV line is in you. Since your drip will usually take a few minutes to finish, you’ll have plenty of time to sit and relax.

Relatively Non-Invasive

IV treatments don’t require much aside from the one injection point in your skin. The entire process is carried out by a trained professional, so you shouldn’t have any problem with the entire procedure. Downtime is minimal – if you need any at all – and you can resume your normal activities as soon as you exit your place of treatment.

Doesn’t Require Doctor Intervention

While our usual image of an IV drip is closely attached to doctor oversight, the reality is that any trained and qualified medical professional can administer IV therapy. Because the compounds usually used in the procedure aren’t as strong enough as the ones used in medical treatments, even trained nurses can administer them. No need for a doctor’s certificate, but you should inform your doctor so they’re aware.

Proven Safety Record

IV therapy is one of the safest procedures that you can go through – especially if you get them from an experienced provider. It’s a treatment that has very few side effects, and the ones you experience usually go away quickly.

Can Help Solve Short And Long-Term Conditions

Depending on the injected fluid, you can use IV therapy for a variety of short and long-term effects. Want to get rid of a hangover before a sudden work engagement? How about making sure that you stay hydrated in the weeks training up to a marathon? IV therapy can help you with all these concerns, no matter how long you want the effects to be.

What Are The Typical Substances Used In IV Therapy?

While the delivery system of IV therapy is undoubtedly one of its best points, the fluid used in your therapy is equally important. These compounds can help boost your body in a variety of ways, with the option of switching between them depending on your needs.

Some of the most popular compounds used in IV therapy include:

  • Vitamins: the body needs vitamins to regulate many of its functions, and it’s especially crucial for people who are suffering from vitamin deficiencies.
  • Minerals: as inorganic compounds, these nutrients aren’t always necessary for the body – but they’re a good way to add more nutrition to your diet.
  • Antioxidants: these can help prevent or heal the damage caused to your cells by free radicals, which can help keep your body in good shape.
  • Antibiotics: if you have a bacterial infection, antibiotics can use IV therapy to reach the area of the body that needs treatment more efficiently.
  • Medications: medicines for low blood pressure or pain relievers can work with IV therapy, which can relieve symptoms faster.

Are There Any Side Effects To IV Therapy?

Because of its long safety record and proven efficacy, there are very few side effects that are associated with IV treatments. Most patients go through IV therapy all their life and do not develop anything serious aside from the usual side effects of needle injections. However, there are a few things you should watch out for:

Reaction To The Infusion

If it’s your first time getting IV therapy, you might experience an adverse reaction to the compound that was injected into your body. Typically, these manifest in symptoms like coughing, fever, rashes, or chills. In these cases, inform your provider immediately and consult your doctor for particularly severe reactions.

Infection

Because needle injections break the skin barrier, IV treatment sites can get infected with bacteria or other foreign contaminants. However, this particular side effect is somewhat rare, especially since most IV therapy providers maintain sterile environments in their practices, offices, and clinics.

Air Embolism

If air gets into the IV line, air can travel up your bloodstream and end up in places like your heart or lungs. This is a serious complication that requires immediate medical treatment. However, it’s also fairly uncommon since it’s caused by improper application or equipment used during IV treatment – not really a concern for experienced providers.

Blood Clots

For patients who get long-term IV treatments, blood clotting can also be a potential concern with frequent IV injections. This is usually why it’s important to both find an experienced provider to administer your therapy and to space them apart to avoid severe complications like clotting from happening to your venous system.

Scarring

People who have sensitive skin can also experience scarring if they get IV treatments too much, especially if the needle keeps being inserted in the same place. Fortunately, any scarring that might form is minimal and can be taken care of with things like topical medications if detected early.

FAQs About IV Therapy

Q: Does IV therapy hurt?

A: IV therapy does involve a needle, so your own pain tolerance will play a role in how painful the injection will be for you. However, if you’re really worried about experiencing any pain, our experienced professionals have everything from topical anesthetic to the skill required to only stick the needle in you once!

Q: How long does IV therapy typically take?

A: Because it’s an infusion and not an injection treatment, IV therapy will usually take around 30 minutes to an hour to complete. This can be shorter or longer depending on the exact compound that you’re getting infused with, while other bits of time are spent on pre-therapy assessment and monitoring you after your treatment.

Q: What’s the outlook like for people who get IV therapy treatments?

A: Patients who have gone through IV therapy typically report increased quality of life a few weeks after consistent treatment. These benefits are even more pronounced with people who take them for medical reasons or to get medication more easily into their body, with favorable outcomes within days of treatment.

Q: Can IV therapy be done at home?

A: Technically, anyone with the right equipment can do IV therapy – but we recommend that you only get your IV infusions done in-office, with a medical or qualified professional. While the immediate risks with misapplied IV treatment aren’t typically that serious, it’s still in your best interest to look for a trained practice for an effective and comfortable experience. You can also request at-home IV therapy, but prices can be higher.

Q: Is IV therapy covered by medical insurance?

A: If you can present paperwork that proves your IV infusion is for medication or a medical condition, your insurance provider can compensate you for your treatment. For IV vitamin therapy and other wellness applications, the exact details are best cleared with your insurance plan.
