IM (Intramuscular) therapies are when a solution is injected directly into a muscle belly. From here, the solution becomes absorbed into the blood and achieves the benefit of bypassing digestion. It is not able to deliver as much as an IV preparation, but can still deliver larger amounts of nutrition than can be achieved by taking medicine or nutrition orally.
We offer a variety of intramuscular shots to meet the needs of our patients. All of our intramuscular solutions include B12 (methylcobalamin) plus a carefully tailored combination that may include B-complex vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. See our full list of injections on our fees and services page.
If you are a new patient who is interested in this service, book an injection consult with Dr. Fleury. If you are a returning patient, injections can be done as part of your next follow-up appointment.
