About 20% of Americans suffer from some type of chronic pain. A number of illnesses, conditions, and injuries can cause chronic pain and make it difficult to complete basic tasks and enjoy life. When you have chronic pain, you need treatment solutions that quickly and effectively relieve your pain at its source. At Pacific Pain and Regenerative Medicine, with offices in Irvine, California, and Los Angeles, Dr. Hassan Badday offers IV therapy as an innovative treatment for chronic pain. This in-office procedure uses an intravenous (IV) drip to provide you with a customized blend of pain relievers that are delivered directly to your bloodstream. We provide this simple and effective treatment in an outpatient setting, so you won’t need to stay overnight in a hospital.

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is an advanced form of pain treatment that provides pain medication to your body via an IV drip inserted into your arm. Provided in our office, this highly effective treatment option allows you to have a custom mix of medications that perfectly addresses your symptoms and needs. The IV therapy usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete per session, and you feel relief immediately.

What pain conditions can IV therapy help relieve?

IV therapy can help relieve chronic pain associated with numerous conditions, including:
     
      • Cancer
      • Severe headaches
      • Neuropathy
      • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
      • Pelvic pain
      • Postsurgical pain
    Dr. Badday develops a personalized medication mixture and custom dosing schedule to address your specific symptoms. This outpatient therapy provides you with relief from your chronic pain, allowing you to get your life back on track.

    What is IV therapy like?

    To dispense the IV medications, Dr. Badday ensures that you’re comfortable before placing an IV into one of the veins in your arm. The medication is dissolved in a saline solution that’s slowly absorbed into your bloodstream. Your vital signs are monitored by our staff during the therapy session to ensure you’re stable and tolerating the treatment. One of the biggest advantages of receiving pain medication via IV therapy is that the medication doesn’t have to go through your digestive system to be processed. It’s delivered directly to your bloodstream. This allows your body to have quicker and more complete access to the medication, and doesn’t restrict dosing options due to gastrointestinal side effects. When you’re suffering from chronic pain, you need treatments that are effective in relieving your symptoms, allowing you to get on with your life. IV therapy is an innovative treatment option that bypasses your digestive system to deliver pain medications directly to your bloodstream for fast and effective pain relief.
