Many neurological conditions are best treated and/or managed using intravenous therapy, also known as infusion therapy. This treatment approach delivers medicine directly into your bloodstream to help ease or eliminate the symptoms of your condition.
Infusion therapy is used to treat a wide range of neurological conditions and autoimmune disorders. It may be the only treatment method for your diagnosis, or it may be used in combination with other medical treatments such as injections, prescription medication or surgery.
Types of infusion therapy
Depending on your diagnosis, your neurologist may prescribe one of the following types of infusion therapy:
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Intravenous immunoglobulin
- Monoclonal antibodies
- Steroid infusions
- Tumor necrosis factor inhibitors
