How do brain injuries occur?
A brain injury occurs when the head is struck by an object (windshield during a car crash, blunt object during a fight or fall, etc.) or pierced (gunshot, rod driven through the head, glass driven through the skull, etc.). The injury could be mild, causing some discomfort or a concussion. Or the injury could be severe enough to cause death. Right in the middle is the “moderate TBI” (traumatic brain injury). This is where some rest and an ice pack aren’t going to cut it. You aren’t injured enough to pass away either, but you are in severe pain and your world has been turned upside down. For these TBI instances, turn to our IV therapy in Fort Lauderdale.
What is Sun Health Center’s IV Therapy in Fort Lauderdale?
We offer two options for IV therapy in Fort Lauderdale: an IV vitamin infusion and a ketamine infusion.
Our vitamin infusion is a potent blend of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that quickly corrects nutritional deficiencies and supports brain and mental health healing. When the brain is injured, your immune system, and therefore the way your body can access and leverage nutrients, is also damaged. The more traumatic the TBI, the weaker your physical state. This leads to more physical and emotional pain, and a longer healing time. Our IV vitamin infusion is designed for a rapid response. By bypassing your digestive system, you get fast relief without losing any of the mixture’s potency. And since you are not taking the infusion orally, you won’t have to suffer with an upset stomach or cramps (which can happen with a high vitamin/nutrient mix).
Our second option for IV therapy in Fort Lauderdale is a ketamine infusion. Ketamine is an extremely powerful drug that is mostly known for its use on the battlefield and for extreme levels of depression and suicidal tendencies. It has a strong antidepressant effect that, while still not fully understood (research is ongoing), is, for some, life saving. If you are a candidate for our ketamine IV therapy – and candidates are approved after careful screening – you can expect to start feeling better quickly. Sometimes, it only takes one session. Ketamine activates brain receptors, helping to restore communication between neurons, lifting the mood, and helping to improve cognitive function. For severe TBI cases, ketamine can be a real game changer.
