How IV Therapy Can Help You Cope with Arthritis Pain
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 54 million adults in the United States today are living with arthritis. Thankfully, many suffering from arthritis pain may find relief through IV (intravenous) therapy.
Our experienced team, comprised of Dr. Keith, Dr. Humiston, and Dr. Chase at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics in West Covina and Anaheim, California, offer the most current and effective treatments possible to improve your health and relieve your pain. See more below about arthritis and how we can use IV therapy to slow down the effects of arthritis.
The ins and outs of arthritis
There are two main types of arthritis: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid.
The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis results from cartilage lost between the joints due to aging or injury. This usually affects only one side of your body, where it inflicts pain and causes inflammation in any of your joints.
There is currently no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder that causes your body to attack its own tissues. It can create additional health problems, as well, such as putting you at a greater risk for heart attacks, type 2 diabetes, and other autoimmune diseases. Fortunately, certain treatments, such as IV therapy, may slow the disease’s progression and help relieve pain.
IV therapy to the rescue
Our knowledgeable team employs IV therapy and other non-surgical, state-of-the-art holistic treatments to ease your pain and improve your overall quality of life. IV therapy delivers nutrients your body needs to help heal your arthritis pain. Options include:
- Nutrients to enhance healing and reduce pain
- Biologics, which are immunosuppressant drugs that mimic your body’s proteins
- Low-dose drugs to decrease inflammation
Benefits of IV therapy
IV therapy can slow the disease’s progression. You may notice less pain and fatigue after just a few sessions. Our doctors also use IV therapy to build up your immune system, increase energy, and reduce stress.
IV therapy offers an array of health benefits, as it delivers nutrients and electrolytes straight into your bloodstream much faster than oral supplements. Nutrients can be absorbed quickly without concern for low stomach acid or lack of digestive enzymes, which can reduce the absorption of oral supplements.
In addition to pain relief, IV therapy may enhance your overall health. It can help:
- Strengthen your immune system
- Increase energy and lessen fatigue
- Improve athletic performance
- Reduce stress
- Improve your skin quality
- Assist weight loss
- Speed healing following an injury or surgery
