Pain management is an issue many people face on a daily basis. Whether your pain is the result of a sports related injury or caused by a condition such as diabetic neuropathy or shingles, customized compounded therapies can help. Many mass-produced pain relievers are available, but unfortunately, due to their strengths, dosage forms and other factors, the choices are limited and they can lead to unwanted side effects. Chronic pain has numerous causes and may be much more difficult to manage than acute pain, requiring a more customized approach to treatment to meet your specific, individual needs. Luckily, when medications are used topically, such as in compounded creams or gels, the side effects associated with mass-produced pain relievers can often times be avoided.
With a healthcare provider’s prescription, our compounding pharmacists can formulate topical and transdermal creams and gels which may be applied locally to the site of pain, for trigger point application, or in a base that will allow systemic absorption. Other possible methods of delivery include suppositories, suspensions, or sprays. There is no need to suffer from your pain any longer.
