IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is one of the wellness services available at A-P Medical Group. The heat and dry air in Las Vegas can rapidly dehydrate your body, zapping your energy and motivation.

IV therapy is a medical treatment that involves administering fluids and nutrients directly into your body through an IV line placed in a vein in your arm. It’s the fastest way to rehydrate your body and ensures you get the fluids and nutrients necessary for better health.  


Am I a candidate for IV therapy?

Your provider at A-P Medical Group determines if you’re a candidate for IV therapy after a thorough consultation. They review your medical history, health concerns, and perform a physical exam. They may also run lab work to assess your hydration, health, and organ function.

There are many health conditions that can benefit from IV therapy, including:

  • Recovery from an acute illness (such as the cold or flu)
  • Management of a chronic health condition (like allergies and arthritis)
  • Treatment for a hangover 
  • Recuperation from an intense workout
  • Skin health conditions (such as dull and dry skin)  

A-P Medical Group also provides IV hydration to treat moderate to severe dehydration, which can cause dizziness, nausea, and confusion.

The health experts at A-P Medical Group may not recommend IV therapy if you have a health condition that affects your body’s ability to process fluids and nutrients, such as liver or kidney disease. 


What can I expect during IV therapy?

Your provider at A-P Medical Group customizes your IV therapy based on your individual needs. They review the details of your treatment at your initial consultation so you know what to expect.

While you relax in the therapy chair, your provider inserts an IV line into a vein in your arm. The IV is attached to a customized bag of nutrients, hydration, and antioxidants. Treatment may take 30-60 minutes, depending on the amount of fluids and nutrient deficiency levels. Your provider closely monitors you during your therapy.

After your IV therapy, you can resume your normal activities unless directed otherwise by your provider. Though results vary, many people feel more energized and focused following IV therapy at A-P Medical Group.

If you’re looking for a safe and effective treatment to boost your health and wellness, then you might benefit from IV therapy. Call A-P Medical Group or schedule your IV therapy appointment online today.
