IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. 

Nutritional supplements taken orally must first go through your digestive system. This process breaks down the nutrients, but your body may absorb only a fraction of essential vitamins and minerals.

IV therapy ensures your body receives the full benefit of the nutrients and can use them right away. 

Copperfield Family Clinic offers IV therapy sessions for adults who want to boost their energy levels, optimize their overall wellness, and support their long-term health. 

As a family nurse practitioner, Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi customizes an IV therapy plan to meet your needs and supervises your session to ensure your safety. 

When should I consider IV therapy?

You may benefit from the IV therapy services available at Copperfield Family Clinic if you have underlying health issues that drain your energy or cause symptoms that lower your quality of life, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Cold or flu
  • Dehydration
  • Hangover
  • Respiratory infections
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Headaches and migraines

IV therapy may also help if you have existing medical conditions that affect how your body absorbs essential nutrients, which can result in ongoing vitamin deficiencies. 

Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi reviews your medical history and current health to determine which nutrients you need. She can also recommend how often you should schedule IV therapy sessions to support your ongoing health. 

What happens during IV therapy?

During your IV therapy session at Copperfield Family Clinic, you get comfortable in a chair while the staff starts an IV line in your vein. 

Your provider attaches a bag containing fluids and essential nutrients to the line. The fluids drip slowly into your vein while you relax. Treatment times vary based on the type of IV therapy you receive. 

Many people notice the benefits of IV therapy even before their treatment is complete. You may feel more energized and focused and have less pain. These benefits can last for several hours or days. 

You can go back to your usual routine right away without any downtime. Side effects of IV therapy are minimal, but you might experience minor redness and bruising where your provider inserted the IV line.
