If You Suffer from Chronic Headaches, Consider IV Therapy

Chronic headaches affect an estimated 45 million Americans. These headaches can occur on a daily, near daily, or intermittent basis. When headaches strike, they can make life miserable, interfering with work, school, and social activities. Frequent headaches can be tough to handle and even tougher to understand. Treatment is focused on managing lifestyle factors, limiting headache triggers, and reducing headache attacks.

Through his practice at Vitality of Agoura, Board-Certified physician Dr. Michael Sarti provides intravenous (IV) therapy as a treatment option for chronic headaches. IV therapy is found to be beneficial for a variety of chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, and complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS).

What are chronic headaches?

People with chronic headaches experience at least 15 headache days a month. They typically begin as less frequent headache episodes that gradually increase over time. Chronic headache is an umbrella term used to describe various types of headaches including:

Understanding headache triggers

Discovering headache triggers is the first step toward successfully managing pain. Dr. Sarti works with patients to identify factors that contribute to headache episodes. Triggers vary greatly from person to person, but some common triggers include:

Keeping a detailed record of your headache episodes helps identify factors in your life contributing to your headaches. It’s wise to record your daily activities, environment, and eating habits when headache episodes strike.

IV infusions benefit chronic headaches

Compared with treatments commonly prescribed for chronic headaches, IV therapy is highly effective. The infusion contains a combination of essential vitamins and nutrients that are vital to the proper functioning of nerves, muscles, and metabolism. This combination also helps increase energy, boost mood, and promote overall well-being. 

Many patients find that headache relief infusions significantly improve their headaches. Medications are sometimes added when appropriate. The substances in the infusion target proteins involved in the cascade of events that result in headache pain.

What can you expect from IV therapy?

The goal of IV therapy is to provide fast relief from chronic headaches and minimize headache episode occurrences and severity. Patients may experience headache relief lasting up to a month following IV therapy.

The infusions typically take 20 minutes to one hour. You can expect to sit comfortably as Dr. Sarti administers the IV headache relief therapy. While you’re undergoing the IV drip, your body receives a rich concentration of carefully chosen nutrients to target pain relief.

Dr. Sarti creates individualized treatment plans for each patient and works with you to get your headaches under control.

A headache relief infusion can help you gain control of chronic headaches as quickly as possible. Careful medical supervision and guidance are the keys to getting your life back from chronic headaches.
