4 Ways IV Therapy Can Help Your Joints and Muscles

Walking up stairs

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reports that over 54 million adults in the USA suffer from arthritis. And while traditional arthritis treatments such as ointments and pills exist, not everyone responds well to them. Plus, you might need the patience of a saint before seeing any substantial improvements.

Thankfully, this is hardly an issue for IV therapy. If you ever reminisce about your more youthful years and wonder how you can restore a fraction of your joint and muscle health, look no further than IV therapy. Still not convinced? Here are four ways IV therapy can help your joints and muscles.

1. Customized Medication According to Your Body’s Needs

Despite anatomical similarities, our bodies’ needs differ based on lifestyle, activity level, and overall health. In theory, you can drink water and nutrient-dense fluids to improve your joint and muscle health, but drinking your way to wellness is highly inefficient, not to mention unspecific to your body’s needs.

If IV therapy were a beverage, it would be the perfect cup of coffee; IV infusions are essentially wellness cocktails that contain just the right amount of nutrients, antioxidants, and electrolytes for your joints and muscles. What’s more, you can receive a custom IV infusion with enough viscosupplementation to replenish the hyaluronic acid needed to lubricate your joints.

2. Optimal Joint and Muscle Hydration

Did you know that up to 60% of your body is water? Hydration is crucial, especially after bouts of physical or sometimes mental activity. In fact, dehydration might be the culprit behind your unbearable fatigue after a lengthy day at the office, muscle aches and joint pain on hot days, or hangover-induced headaches after a night of drinking.

Unlike drinking water or energy drinks, IV therapy delivers water to your trouble areas swiftly. The near-instantaneous influx of water and electrolytes flushes toxins from your muscles, leaving you rejuvenated, healthy, and ready for action.

3. Speedy Healing Time

If physical activity was not strenuous enough, bone and soft tissue injuries could further compound your woes. Recovering from severe injuries is always an uphill battle, more so as we get older.

IV therapy might not be the be-all and end-all of injury recovery, but it can fast-track the process immensely. Administering IV infusions with high doses of vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, and other essential minerals helps the body rebuild collagen — the human body’s most abundant protein present in muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and skin.

4. Maximum Absorption

Although convenient, oral fluid or medication intake increases the likelihood of losing essential nutrients along the digestive tract. Oral consumption puts you at risk of not experiencing your medication’s full effect. IV therapy, on the other hand, is arguably the surest path to maximal nutrient uptake; it is less wasteful, and the body reacts much quicker.
