How Long Does the Infusion Therapy Take?

At Source Healthcare, we do not believe in the one-size-fits-all formula approach. The duration of our customized infusion therapy depends on many aspects such as your diagnosis, the infusion protocol, the nature and extent of pain, and your overall health. On average, most infusion therapies are administered slowly over one hour while you stay for an additional thirty minutes to recover optimally. For some chronic conditions, infusion therapy can take anywhere between three and four hours.

Our tailored approach extends to the prescription of the number of treatment sessions each of our clients require based on their pain relief and wellness goals. Most patients need several treatments while the number of infusions depends on the type of medication chosen as well as the infusion protocol. While many of our clients respond immediately and experience good pain relief, for some, the true benefit of the infusion therapy is evident after several treatments.

Our Procedure

At your scheduled appointment, our interventional specialists evaluate your medical history and other relevant health information before prescribing a tailored infusion therapy.

Depending on the medical condition and the pain assessment, your doctor selects the appropriate pain medication as well as the dosage to be administered in the infusion.

During the procedure, the doctor places an intravenous catheter in your arm or hand through which medications are infused over a defined amount of time. Some of the infusion pain medications that can be used include:

  • Lidocaine – Lidocaine works by blocking nerve signals in your body.
  • Ketamine – Ketamine is a popular anesthetic and sedative that works by acting against pain receptors in the brain.
  • Clonidine – Clonidine prevents transmission of pain signals to the brain
  • Magnesium – Magnesium works to decrease acute and chronic pain by normalizing abnormal nerve excitation.

Is Infusion Therapy Right for You?

Scheduling a consultation with our interventional specialists is the most prudent course of action when you are considering infusion therapy. Our experts assess your candidacy for infusion therapy while designing a precise formulation of medications to achieve optimal relief from pain.
