Intravenous (IV) drip treatments and IV push treatments are both common forms of medical administration where fluids, medications, or other substances are delivered directly into a person's bloodstream. While they may seem similar in practice, there are several key differences between the two treatments. Let's explore these options further!
K Wellness IV Drip Treatment
An IV drip treatment begins with a small catheter placed into the patient’s vein which is attached to a bag of saline solution hanging on an IV pole. K Wellness providers then add vitamins & minerals, amino acids, and/or medications to the saline solution according to a patients specific conditions or requests. Finally, the liquid travels through the tube at a controlled rate, allowing for slow and steady infusion of the treatment over an extended period of time.
K Wellness IV Push Treatment
In contrast, an IV push involves one single injection of your vitamins & minerals, amino acids, and/or medications delivered quickly into a larger vein, typically lasting less than one minute. This type of treatment is much quicker and is especially useful for people who don't have the time to wait the 45 minutes to an hour to complete a full drip treatment. You still receive all of the nutritional benefits that you would from an IV Drip Treatment, but because a saline bag is not used you might not receive the same instant feeling of hydration. However, because an IV Push Treatment requires less supplies and time spent with a medical professional, the cost of receiving this therapy is relatively cheaper.
K Wellness Intramuscular Injections (IM)
While IV Drip and IV Push Treatments are effective at rapidly absorbing nutrients into your blood stream intravenously, IM Injections deliver nutrients directly into your muscles instead. At K Wellness, we provide B12 and Lipotropic injections though the IM method.
