IV therapy is a treatment that is growing in popularity for treating pain related issues. It has been shown to be beneficial for many types of pain, including chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.
It can also be helpful for treating acute pain, such as post-operative pain or pain related to cancer treatment.
In this article we are going to cover everything you need to know about IV therapy and the pain related diseases it can help.
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy is a treatment where fluids, medication and vitamins are administered intravenously.
This means that the solutions or medications are delivered directly into your body through an IV drip.
The reason why this method of administration is so effective for pain related issues is because it bypasses the digestive tract and goes straight to your bloodstream so you get the full dose of the medication.
This is especially beneficial for medications that are not well tolerated by the stomach, or for those who have difficulty swallowing pills.
The Benefits of IV Therapy
There are many benefits to using IV therapy for pain relief such as:
- improved absorption of medications and vitamins due to bypassing the digestive tract.
- quicker relief than oral medications (effects can kick in as quickly as 15 minutes after administration)
- lowered risk of side effects due to smaller doses being administered intravenously (since the medication is going straight into your bloodstream, you don’t need a high dose).
Additionally, our IV therapy products can be combined with other medications to help you fight symptoms associated with your pain, like nausea and fatigue.
Now that you have a basic understanding of IV therapy and how it can help combat your pain, let's take a look at some of the diseases that our clients are using IV therapy for.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that is characterized by widespread pain, fatigue and tender points all over the body.
