Whereas infusion therapy works by slow-dripping fluids into the body through the force of gravity or an infusion pump, injection therapy uses a small syringe to push medications into the body. Unlike oral medication, injection treatments are able to bypass the gastrointestinal system, which allows them to target the affected body areas more directly.
Typically injections are given either into the muscle (IM) or under the skin (subcutaneously). What injection type is right for you will depend on your own personal medical needs and the best delivery route for the medication that is being administered. Our expert medical staff will ensure that, regardless of the injection type, your treatment is as quick, painless, and effective as possible.
