What is IV vitamin therapy?

IV vitamin therapy, also known as intravenous vitamin therapy, refers to therapy that delivers fluids directly into the blood veins of your body. IV therapy works by injection, also called a vitamin drip or a vitamin infusion.

IV therapy is the fastest way to deliver essential nutrients to your entire body by putting them directly into the bloodstream. IV therapy is the only delivery method that provides 100% bioavailability. This means that IV drip vitamins bypass your digestive tract providing total systemic circulation for instant benefits.

IV drip therapy combats nutritional deficiency, keeps you protected from illness, and provides anti-aging benefits.

What can IV vitamin therapy treat?

Beyond rehydration and an immunity boost, one study indicated that it can help treat a number of illnesses including:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Back + muscle spasms
  • Colds
  • Depression
  • Fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Sinusitis

An interview with 2 pharmacists, a PhD, and a registered nurse added that the vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes in IV vitamin therapy might also help treat: respiratory tract infections, angina, hyperthyroidism, skin conditions, sports recovery, problems with nutrient absorption, poor or low energy, stress, toxin removal, balance hormones, and address other general pain.

What type of IV therapy do you offer?

Our clinics offer the Myers’ Cocktail IV drip. Every drip is formulated specifically for you, but the standard Myers’ drip consists of a super dose of:

  • Calcium
  • B complex (incl vitamin B12)
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin C

The Myers infusion is administered through a slow IV drip or slow IV infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not obtainable with oral supplementation. The Myers Cocktail is the perfect IV drip to alleviate dehydration, inflammation, muscle pain, fatigue, and stress. It can also help with boosting your immune system, alleviating anxiety, migraines, and muscle cramps.

What can I expect during an IV vitamin therapy appointment?

Before you come in, you should eat a light meal. On your first visit, you will meet with one of our medical staff to get a history, consult on your concerns, and discuss an IV therapy plan. During the initial needle insertion, there may be some minor discomfort, such as you might feel if you’ve had your blood drawn. Our staff is trained to provide maximum comfort.

Depending on your circulation and the rate of administration, the small IV drip bags can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to completely enter your bloodstream. Large IV bags require 45 to 90 minutes to empty. While the IV fluids are entering your body, you are welcome to nap, read, or watch something on your phone or tablet. To respect all our patients, please bring headphones if you plan to watch or listen to something.

IV drips are individually mixed and administered by licensed medical providers and physicians. Whether you come in for your lunch hour or on a Saturday morning, expect to spend less than an hour to empty most IV bags.

IV vitamin therapy is safe, fast, and efficient, but it is only available in select locations. Please call ahead to be sure you can receive an IV vitamin treatment at the clinic nearest you.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
