The multidisciplinary headache specialists at Advanced Headache Center in NYC and NJ offer intravenous (IV) therapy to effectively eliminate refractory headaches and migraines, particularly in individuals for whom traditional methods of therapy have failed. Our physicians are specially trained in the field of headache medicine, ensuring maximum safety and effectiveness of your intravenous infusion procedure.

What are Intravenous Infusions?

Many patients prefer not to rely on painkillers or narcotic medication to ease headaches and gravitate towards safe and painless infusion therapy. Intravenous Infusions entail injecting a group of medications directly into your veins using a needle or a tube. They are designed to help reduce headache pain and frequency while also helping you wean off of the medication you are currently on.

Infusions often consist of magnesium which is known to produce safe and effective headache relief. Infusion therapy may also use a blend of medications designed to treat pain, nausea, and inflammation simultaneously.

What are The Benefits of IV for Headaches?

Infusion therapy for migraines offers many benefits, including:

  • Fast, effective relief. The mix of substances used in a migraine infusion targets precisely the proteins that cause a migraine occurrence. By calming hyperactive nerve endings, the infusions help reduce the irritation behind a migraine attack.
  • Quick, cost-effective procedure. An infusion therapy session typically lasts one hour, following which you can go home to relax and recover.
  • Long-term defense against future headaches. The results of IV migraine treatments may last up to a month, protecting against attacks during that time. It can be a game-changer for people suffering from chronic migraines.

Is Infusion Therapy Your Option?

Infusions for headaches may be a good option for you if you get terrible migraines that do not improve with traditional treatments, particularly if they continue for a few days or more.

If you’re interested in infusion therapy for migraines and headaches, let us know by scheduling an appointment at one of our NYC or NJ offices. The team at Advanced Headache Center is looking forward to diagnosing and treating your problem using holistic, specialized care.
