IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is an outpatient treatment where you receive a liquid mixture of vitamins and nutrients through a small tube inserted into a vein. This allows the nutrients to enter your bloodstream directly, bypassing your stomach and digestive tract altogether. 

When you take a vitamin or nutritional supplement orally, you receive only a small percentage of its benefits. IV therapy increases vitamin and mineral uptake by your cells. This boosts your immune system and improves your body’s ability to fight illness.

What kind of health problems can IV therapy treat?

IV therapy is incredibly versatile. At LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A., the team uses IV therapy to treat a variety of common health problems, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Muscles spasms
  • Sciatica
  • Neuropathy
  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Sports-related injuries

You might also benefit from IV therapy if you’re a weekend warrior or athlete. Training for an intense event like a marathon takes a lot out of you. IV therapy can ease inflammation or cramps and quickly rehydrate you. 

What happens during an IV therapy appointment?

LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A. performs IV therapy on-site in their warm, welcoming offices. On the day of your appointment, you sit in a comfortable chair, and your provider sterilizes the arm receiving the IV drip.

After cleaning your arm, your provider carefully inserts a needle into a vein. The needle connects to an IV bag that contains a medical-grade solution of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. The medication drips into your bloodstream over the course of about 90 minutes.

While you wait, you can read a book, surf the web on your smartphone, or take a nap. After your appointment finishes, you can return to your normal routine right away. 

What type of IV therapy is right for me?

At LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A., the team uses a variety of IV infusions and tailors treatment to your needs. 

Some of the most common ingredients used in IV infusion therapy include vitamin C, vitamin B, and magnesium. Some infusions contain amino acids and antioxidants.

Before developing an IV infusion treatment plan, your provider conducts a physical exam and reviews your medical history. They may also order lab testing to see if you have a vitamin deficiency or nutritional imbalance. After gathering this information, your provider makes a recommendation that aligns with your individual needs.
