IV Vitamin Therapy for Athletes

IV vitamin therapy for athletes

Professional athletes push their bodies to the brink of endurance and beyond. Because of this, they often face their own unique health concerns. Athletes like those who participate in the Olympics eat right and get more than their share of exercise, but when you're training for a game or an important competition, nutritional depletion can be a problem, as can sore muscles and aching joints. Intravenous, or IV vitamin therapy for athletes is a way for you to get the vitamins and nutrients you need to perform consistently at your peak.

Health Concerns for Athletes

As an athlete, you'll need to manage your diet to ensure that you're taking proper care of your body. Common health concerns for athletes consist of getting enough protein for muscle maintenance and fueling up on the proper amount of carbs for energy. Don’t forget to stay hydrated!

Do Athletes Need More Vitamins and Minerals?

Vitamins will not give you more energy, but your body does need them to transform the foods you eat into energy. Some research suggests that because athletes are highly active, they may need more vitamins. An athlete's body also needs minerals to complete important metabolic and physiologic processes. Minerals help muscle contraction, oxygen transport within the body, and bone health.

What Vitamins Do Athletes Need?

For muscle cell energy, make sure you are giving your body riboflavin, niacin and thiamine. Pyridoxine aids oxygen transfer while vitamin B12 and folic acid support red blood cell development. Intravenous therapy for athletes can ensure your body has the vitamins and minerals it needs to perform at a high level.

Vitamins for Athletes and Body Builders

Athletes and body builders may benefit from protein powder. The best times to use extra protein are when you're starting a new exercise program or adding onto your current one. It's also a good idea to use a protein powder if you're healing from an injury or making a major diet change. For instance, if you're transitioning to a vegan diet, consider using a protein powder to maintain your muscle mass and energy levels.

How IV Vitamin Therapy for Athletes Works

Modern technology now offers intravenous therapy for athletes that allow them to get the nutrition they need. When you take additional nutrients orally, the vitamins and minerals enter the gastrointestinal system, which decreases their effectiveness. With IV vitamin therapy for athletes, the treatment method evades the digestive tract to give you full access to the power of the nutrients.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
