What is IV medication infusion?
Intravenous (IV) medication infusion is a process of delivering specialized medications directly into your bloodstream to treat neurological conditions. Many therapeutic medicines focus on changing the immune system to relieve neurological symptoms.
IV medication infusion therapy may be a more effective solution for neurological conditions than taking oral medications and involves less risk. By delivering the medicines directly into your blood, you receive the maximum benefit of treatment.
