At our state-of-the-art clinic, we specialize in providing advanced IV infusion treatments for acute headache relief. Our Wilmington, Delaware team is dedicated to offering effective and personalized care to alleviate your severe headache symptoms.
IV (intravenous) headache treatment involves administering medications and nutrients directly into the bloodstream through a vein. This method can provide rapid relief from headache symptoms by ensuring efficient absorption of the treatment. Our clinic specializes in a variety of highly effective treatments for both acute and chronic headaches.
Depending on your specific headache type and symptoms, we can create a customized IV cocktail. This may include a mix of vitamins, antioxidants, and medications tailored to your needs.
Therapeutic Infusions specializes in the targeted use of Ketamine, a medication known for its pain-relieving and anesthetic properties, has emerged as a promising option in the treatment of acute headaches, especially for individuals who have not found relief through traditional methods. Here’s why Ketamine can be an effective choice:
Rapid Pain Relief
One of the most significant advantages of Ketamine is its ability to provide quick relief from pain. Unlike some other treatments that may take time to become effective, Ketamine can offer relief often within hours of administration.
Effective for Resistant Headaches
Ketamine has been found to be particularly beneficial for those suffering from headaches that have not responded well to other treatments. This includes certain chronic migraines and cluster headaches, which are often resistant to conventional therapies.
Mechanism of Action
Ketamine works differently from traditional headache medications. It acts on the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the brain. This action can help reset pain pathways, reducing the intensity and frequency of headache episodes.
In the treatment of headaches, Ketamine is used in much lower doses than when used for anesthesia. These lower doses minimize the risk of side effects while still providing effective pain relief.
Reduction in Associated Symptoms
Apart from alleviating headache pain, Ketamine can also help reduce related symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound, providing a more comprehensive approach to symptom management.
Potential Long-Term Benefits
Some studies have suggested that Ketamine may have long-term benefits in headache management. Regular treatments might lead to a decrease in the frequency and severity of headache episodes over time.
Alternative for Those Who Cannot Take Traditional Medications
For patients who cannot take certain medications due to allergies, side effects, or contraindications, Ketamine offers an alternative that is often well-tolerated.

Botulinum toxin has emerged as a promising treatment option for chronic migraines. While traditionally used for cosmetic purposes, its ability to relax muscles has shown effectiveness in reducing both the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. In clinical trials, onabotulinumtoxin A, a specific type of botulinum toxin, has been found to reduce migraine days by an average of 1.9 per month, offering significant relief to sufferers.
This therapeutic effect is thought to be related to the toxin's ability to block the release of pain-signaling chemicals, including calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), which plays a crucial role in migraine development. By inhibiting this pathway, botulinum toxin can prevent the activation of pain pathways in the brain and nervous system, leading to fewer and less intense migraines. While further research is needed to fully understand the long-term implications of botulinum toxin for migraine treatment, its current effectiveness has established it as a valuable tool in the fight against this debilitating condition.
