<< Back to IV therapy benefits
With most pain treatments, you swallow a pill or apply a cream and wait for the relief to set in. IV therapy works FAST, sending anti-inflammatory pain reliever and other beneficial ingredients directly to your bloodstream for maximum effectiveness.
IV vitamin infusions work faster than oral or topical treatments.
Add a pain-relieving boost to any of our IV treatments, or speak to our medical staff about a custom formulation addressing your health goals. Whether your pain is from an injury, illness or chronic condition, IV vitamin therapy provides the hydration and nutrients your body needs to heal.
Many types of pain can be treated with IV therapy:
All treatments are administered by our experienced nursing staff. Information about intravenous vitamin therapy is not meant to be a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment from your primary physician.
Magnesium is recognized as having a beneficial effect on individuals suffering neuropathic pain, migraine headaches, and menstrual cramps. Magnesium helps relieve pain by blocking calcium ions from entering NMDA receptors in the central nervous system. In this way it inhibits the painful stimulus of the sensory neurons.1

Studies have shown high dose vitamin C infusions can reduce post-operative pain. The exact mechanism behind why vitamin C relieves pain is not yet completely understood. It’s possible multiple beneficial effects of vitamin C contribute to pain relief, such as reducing levels of reactive oxygen species in the body, and modulating neurotransmitters like dopamine and glutamate.
Research has shown that in some cases neuropathic pain (nerve pain) can be triggered or worsened by nutritional deficiencies. IV vitamin infusions are an effective way to correct imbalances.
More studies are needed to definitively link the properties of ascorbic acid to pain relief, but vitamin C infusions have many benefits for overall health and well-being.
IV therapy helps you recover faster and get back out there.
When your body is dehydrated, it can trigger or exacerbate different types of pain. Symptoms of dehydration can include headache, backache, and pain or stiffness in the joints.
Connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) become more prone to injury and inflammation when the body is dehydrated. Muscle cramps are more frequent when dehydrated.
Dehydration can also cause digestive problems including constipation and heartburn, leading to abdominal pain and discomfort.
Dehydration can delay healing, prolonging pain from injury or illness. The body needs fluids to grow new tissues (in the case of wound healing). Proper hydration is also important to produce sufficient blood flow which carries oxygen, vitamins, nutrients and white blood cells throughout the body to protect against infection and promote healing.
IV vitamin therapy is the fastest way to deliver essential fluids and nutrients to every cell in your body and relieve dehydration symptoms.
