If you want to supplement your chiropractic care with other self-care procedures, IV vitamin therapy could be the solution you have been looking for a complete healing.
This article will explain what are the advantages of this type of treatment and who can benefit from it.
Should I get IV Therapy?
IV vitamin therapy is appropriate for most people of average health who are looking for a bit of a “boost”. It’s a good option for those patients that don’t want to have to go under an expensive prescriptive medicine treatment or spend long hours in a hospital.
This type of treatment is widely used as a form of preventative medicine, by people who desire to maintain their good health and avoid many common health problems, and it’s becoming a popular treatment amongst celebrities and athletes.
These treatments can be found in medical spas and wellness centers, such as chiropractor’s offices, and provide a fast, inexpensive treatment and quick results.
You can boost your healthy immune system, get yourself hydrated and recover from most or every symptom that was making you feel ill in a matter of minutes only.
Vitamin injections are specially helpful treatments for those who don’t get all the nutrients they need from their diet, such as people with diseases that prevent proper nutrient absorption or people who are unable to consume enough food.
Vegetarians, vegans, and even people with no dietary restrictions may face vitamin deficiency in some point of life. Low vitamin levels may lead to several diseases such as anaemia, weight and hair loss, or even depression, so it’s very important to pay attention to your vitamin levels.
Why is it a fast treatment?
The infusion of fluids, vitamins and minerals go directly in the bloodstream and are 100% absorbed, which makes this treatment very practical, working faster than common oral medication. When using other common methods such as pills, the results might take long to
show up. The effects of IV therapy, however, are almost immediate.
It is a great solution for patients who are suffering from fatigue, flu symptoms, hangover or jet lag, or people who just need a quick energy or immunity boost.
How is the procedure?
The procedure is relatively simple and painless. The specialist will disinfect the injection site and insert the IV into your vein, and connect the vitamin bag. Then you’ll just have to sit comfortably and wait around 20-45 minutes until the procedure ends. You should feel very
little discomfort and after it’s finished, you can normally continue with your daily activities.
Side effects of IV therapy are rare and fairly mild.
Is it good for anyone?
Such as any other health treatment, it is not indicated for everybody.
It may not be a good option for patients who have congestive heart failure, kidney diseases or who take certain medications and/or have presented certain allergies.
It’s necessary to talk to your healthcare provider about your health history to make sure this treatment is adequate to you.
Is it safe to get IV Therapy at a Chiropractor’s office?
Chiropractors who have gone through a nursing program and/or are specialized in IV therapy can legally administer IV infusion therapies in the US. If administered by a trained and licensed healthcare provider, it’s generally very safe to have an IV therapy.
