What is IV Therapy?
IV Therapy is a treatment in which mixtures of vitamins and medications are administered directly into patients’ veins. These treatments can provide an assortment of benefits, ranging from boosted immune system to muscle repair. Introducing these vitamins and medications directly to the bloodstream allows their effects to be felt more quickly and effectively than something like oral ingestion of vitamins. Patients also benefit from an increase in hydration level. Most importantly though, it helps cells function at a higher level, which then helps organs function at their proper level as well. This all results in overall improved health to help patients feel and perform better throughout their day.

Various preparations of IV vitamin infusion
In addition to the re-hydrating saline solution, proprietary preparations of vitamins, amino acids and other metabolites are also mixed into many IV fluids. These mixtures help patients gain restored vigor and energy, as well as provide a boost to many crucial bodily functions. Years ago, the original preparation was named the “Myers’ Cocktail,” which served primarily as an infusion of multivitamins. These days, more sophisticated infusions are used to treat all kinds of medical conditions, including things such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Infusions for things like collagen rejuvenation, jet lag, calorie burn, and even hangover are also available.
At South Valley OrthoMed, we have a dedicated room for patients to sit back and relax while an IV cocktail is administered. Patients can bring any books, magazines, tablets, or any other form of entertainment to pass the time. We hope for your end result to be walking out of our doors feeling like a more energetic and healthier version of yourself than when you walked in.
