Here at Eastside Family Health Center, we are aware of how chronic pain can severely impact your quality of life. Our specialists who are experts at regenerative medicine consolidate the IV infusion protocols for many indications (including immune boost and kidney support), as a way to help manage your chronic pain we offer IV infusion therapy.

Before, We would like to share how IV infusion therapy can be part of your pain management regimen.

What is IV Infusion Therapy? 

IV infusion therapy is a therapy administered via an intravenous (IV) catheter, just as the name suggests. IV infusions deliver medications, nutrients, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system. At a hospital or other healthcare facility, you are probably familiar with IV infusions in a medical setting. The process is the same, whether you receive an IV at the hospital or here at Regenerative Medical Group. The contents of your infusion flow into your bloodstream by a thin catheter inserted into your vein. After an initial pinch, the process is painless. Many people can sit back, relax, and read during their infusion.

 How does IV infusion therapy benefit chronic pain?

Your health and wellness needs are met by customizing your IV infusions. We include appropriate additives to help with pain relief by using our Happy and Healthy IV base. There are certain vitamins and minerals that support your body when need to overcome chronic pain, this includes: 

B Vitamins

These vitamins are very helpful if you have nerve pain because the B vitamins promote nerve regeneration

 Vitamin C

Vitamin C’s an immune-boosting powerhouse, but it also supports your body when battling chronic pain, according to a 2017 study. Too much of the stress hormone (cortisol) can increase pain sensitivity, while vitamin C protects the body from the damaging effects of cortisol.

Magnesium

Magnesium — the mineral that helps prevent muscle cramps — also stabilizes nerve excitement, which then helps to decrease sensitivity to pain, according to research. The same article also includes that magnesium is frequently included when treating postoperative pain.

There is less chance for your infusion to pass through your gut without first being absorbed because IV infusions bypass your digestive system.
