IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers essential vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. When you eat food, your natural digestive processes limit the amount of nutrients your body absorbs, which can lead to a vitamin deficiency.

By delivering essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream, IV infusions ensure your body gets the full benefit of the vitamins and minerals it needs to function optimally.

There are also therapies available that can address underlying medical conditions like:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Overall wellness

Many infusions also contain antioxidants that support long-term health and offer anti-aging benefits. You can also utilize IV therapy to accelerate healing from a sports injury or to improve performance.

What are the available IV therapy services?

Mountain View Headache & Spine Institute offers the most popular IV therapy infusions to improve your health and wellness.

Available IV therapies include:

Ketamine Therapy

Dr. Gupta can recommend ketamine infusions to treat chronic pain and immobility that results from nerve-related pain conditions like:

  • Cancer
  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Traumatic spine injury
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Chronic opioid therapy

Ketamine infusions might also be appropriate for managing other types of chronic back or neck pain, depending on your diagnosis.

Lidocaine Therapy

IV Lidocaine therapy consists of liquid lidocaine being infused into your blood through an intravenous set.  This therapy has shown to have benefits for nerve-related pain as well as pain refractory to opioid/narcotic therapy.  There has also been some published evidence to suggest it would be helpful in fibromyalgia.

Myers’ cocktail

Myers’ cocktail infusion contains a combination of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B and C, calcium, and magnesium, that can boost your energy and help you manage fatigue, symptoms of a cold, and chronic pain from fibromyalgia and other conditions.


Migraine Nutraceutical therapy

This is a type of IV therapy to treat and prevent migraines and includes high concentrations of magnesium, riboflavin, and other supplements that can address existing migraine pain and reduce the frequency of new migraines.

Dihydro Ergotamine Alkaloid (DHEA therapy)

This therapy is indicated for certain types of headache conditions that have not responded to more traditional methods. 

Dr. Gupta can recommend the right IV therapy for you based on your unique health needs and symptoms.

What can I expect during IV therapy?

During your IV therapy session at Mountain View Headache & Spine Institute, Dr. Gupta starts an IV line in your arm. The vitamins and minerals slowly drip through the IV line, and your treatment generally lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.

You can sit back and relax as you receive the infusion. Many people experience a boost in energy, renewed mental clarity, and other benefits of IV therapy during their treatment and immediately after. You can also expect your results to improve in the hours after your treatment.

The number of infusions you need to optimize your health depends on the reasons for your treatment and your health history.
