Summer means fun in the sun for lots of Coloradans, but for Essex Medspa, it means patients streaming in with bone fractures and muscle tears. 

We get it! The mountains are calling your name, and the early sunrise gets you up in the morning.  Long days mean more time on tennis courts, on rivers, and hitting that long ball on the golf course. 

Of course, we encourage all this outdoor exercise in the fresh air and sunshine, building muscle, improving cardiovascular and respiratory function. We’ll even go so far as to say the many benefits of exercise make the pain and hassle of infrequent injuries worth it. 

Still, we wanted you to know that you have powerful healing options available beyond ibuprofen should you tear a muscle or fracture or break a bone. 

Patients have been pleased with how quickly and effectively our IV nutrition therapy provides the body with the nutrients needed to heal bones and muscles. Delivered right to the bloodstream, the good medicine gets to trouble spots without being weakened by the digestive system the way oral medications can be. More, by skipping the whole digestive drama, IV nutrition therapy relief happens fast.   

Just ask our patient, Molly.     

Molly and the Quad Tears  

New to Denver, Molly wanted to connect with people other than those she was meeting at work. When she saw a co-ed softball league starting in the park just steps from her back door, her lack of skills and dugout experiences didn’t prevent her from signing up. It was advertised as “casual” after all. At the organizational meeting, the other players commented how they wanted to beat different neighborhoods that year. Maybe it wasn’t as casual as she’d assumed.  

During her first at bat, an apprehensive Molly swung and hit a respectable line drive. Amid shouts of “Go! Get to second!” Molly leaped from home base in a fury. Halfway to first, the field ahead tilted and she tumbled. Two instant quad tears.  

Through our front door, we saw Molly gingerly shuffling to our clinic from the parking lot. As she reached the door, she could barely lift her foot over the threshold. It took her several minutes and our receptionist’s assistance to get the job done. We all knew she was headed for the IV chair. 

After an IV “Myers Cocktail,” which took about 30 minutes, we encouraged Molly to stay in the chair listening to her book on tape. She got up, unsure of how she was feeling, but her face looked far less grim than when she had come in. She walked out, still slightly stiff, but taking longer, stronger strides as she glided through the front door. The next day she reported that her pain had diminished from a 10 to a 5, and she was able to get to work and take care of her children without too much trouble. She had to cheer on the team from the stands for a while but was able to get back to her activities and life as usual.   

We have lots of men in our IV chairs, too. In fact, you can read all about how more and more men are using IV nutrition therapy for workout recovery, athletic performance, and overall health here

The Myer’s Cocktail: Proven IV Nutrition Therapy for Muscle Tears

Developed in the 1970s and 1980s by the late John Myers, MD, a physician at Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Myer’s Cocktail is an infusion of vitamins and minerals. Here at Essex, we can custom mix your reparative IV depending on your needs and even current micronutrient levels

After 25 years of using IV nutrition therapies to help athletes and weekend warriors recover from injuries, marathons, and workouts, we’ve found the right balances of B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium heal powerfully.  

Some patients prefer to have their current or “baseline” micronutrient levels tested before getting an IV infusion. Essex Medspa uses SpectraCell’s patented micronutrient testing, which assesses the levels of 31 vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. With more than a million patients tested over its 20-year existence, SpectraCell’s patented technology delivers results for tens of thousands of conventional and integrative medical practitioners all over the world. 

Other patients skip the micronutrient testing and use IV nutrition therapy to relieve immediate, acute issues–like Molly’s quad tears–or to support their immune system to prepare for an upcoming trip. You can read all about the IV nutrition therapy for glowing, gorgeous skin in this post, too.  

IV Nutrition Therapy: Is It Right for You? 

The body’s capacity to heal itself and regenerate critical structures amazes us every day. When a muscle tear or bone fracture occurs, however, the body needs higher levels of nutrients to repair tissue and regenerate cells. IV nutrition therapy is one tool in a large arsenal of therapies that can get you back on your bike, horse, or favorite river sooner rather than later.  

Celebrities like Simon Cowell, Miley Cyrus, Chrissy Teigen, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna have all told reporters they rely on IV therapies to look younger, feel more energetic, treat muscle strain and improve overall health and immunity.

If you’re interested in IV nutrition therapy to address muscle tears, osteoporosis, fractures, or breaks, please call 303-973-3683 or ask your questions on our online form. We’ll be sure to get back to you by the next business day.
