How IV therapy is changing the game for athletes, taking their performance to new heights

Recovery is essential for athletes. Whether you are bouncing back from the Chicago Marathon or a brutal spin class, your muscles, tendons, and ligaments need time to heal. Mastering the “art” of recovering from exercise, competition, or a hard workout also reduces the risk of future injuries and supports improved performance and strength. Led by double-boarded physician Dr. Philip Conrardy, White Pearl Medical Spa also gets you back on the trail or in the studio and performing your healthy best with IV therapy.  

IV drips, made for athletes

Our team in Northwest Illinois, serves individuals from across Chicagoland with an array of med spa-centric offerings designed to restore and sustain their well-being. These services include IV hydration therapy. Our skilled professionals safely administer the exact vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs intravenously or via a line in the vein. Think of this therapy as a way to replenish the essential nutrients, electrolytes, and fluids depleted during intense exercise, competitive sports, and sweat loss. 

Since such “vitamin hydration” directly enters the bloodstream and bypasses the digestive system, higher-concentrated combinations of beneficial substances are delivered to the cells. So, your body absorbs more of the nutrients than it needs. Additionally, in just 30 to 60 minutes, nutrients are distributed rapidly via the bloodstream and throughout the body. In contrast to oral supplements taken by mouth, performance-minded patients get quick results. They feel better sooner, which is especially important for athletes who must return to performing at the highest levels quickly.

Accelerating healing 

Amateur and professional athletes alike can benefit from an array of nutritional essentials. These include glutathione, a powerful blend of antioxidants that promote tissue-building and repair. By introducing just the right amount of vitamins, minerals, and fluids, IV therapy for athletes targets the inflammation, soreness, and fatigue associated with micro-tears and muscle strains resulting from strenuous physical activities. Additional anti-inflammatories, such as vitamin C, help bolster the immune system, relieve pain, and return athletes to their training regimens faster. Vitamin C is also present in the “Myers cocktail.” Alongside B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium, this powerhouse therapy also supports muscle growth, clarity and focus, nerve function, and renewed energy and endurance.
