Infusion therapy can be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions and specialties when other treatment options are unsuccessful.
Also known as IV therapy, infusion therapy involves the intravenous administration of medication, antibiotics, or hydration directly into the patient’s bloodstream.
Medical conditions that benefit from infusion therapy
Infusion therapy is often prescribed for patients with chronic, complex, and rare conditions where other treatments have not been successful. In addition to providing relief to patients, in some cases, it is an overall better method of administration for the patient’s needs.
This method of administration produces a higher medication absorption rate for patients while being easier on the gut when compared to many oral medications. Infusion therapy can provide more efficient treatment and faster relief of symptoms associated with chronic illness.
Infusion therapy also allows for better control of the speed of administration. Many infusion therapy medications use a slow drip to administer the medication and allow the body to absorb it slowly, rather than a faster push of medication that might be used in an emergency.
Infusion therapy is often used for chronic illnesses that don’t respond well to oral medications. Conditions that can be treated with infusion therapy include:
- Crohn’s Disease
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Immune deficiency
As a standalone infusion therapy center, FlexCare Infusion Centers works directly with referring physicians to get patients relief from symptoms related to their illness.
