Pain Management Compounding

Chronic pain can put your life on hold! It can disable you from things you take part in such as playing catch with your son or lifting heavy objects at work. Don’t let acute or chronic pain control your life. Compounding for Pain Management can improve your daily life. Commercially available medications can cause many side effects that lead to even more frustration either due to the dosage, the way you take the medicine, or other factors.

Compounding medications can help you relieve pain without ingesting oral medicine. You won’t have to deal with the possibility of stomach irritation. Nor will you have to struggle with the difficulty of swallowing pills or tablets. We can transform an oral pill into a transdermal pain cream accustomed to YOUR pain when we work as a team with you and your physician. Call us today to discuss starting your compound prescriptions!

There are a multitude of different forms of pain that include neuropathic pain, peripheral pain and spinal pain. Neuropathic Pain is when there is damage to the nervous system, this can include:

  • Phantom Limb Pain
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • HIV Infection or AIDS
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • And referred pain caused by other treatments and/or medications

Peripheral Pain is caused by damage outside of the brain and nervous system, that includes:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Ligament/Tendon Trauma
  • Arthritis
  • And etc.

Spinal Pain can be caused by muscle imbalances, disks and/or bone misalignment in spine/back, it can cause:

  • Pinched Nerves/Sciatica
  • Herniated Disks
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Spinal Fractures
  • Abnormal Curvature

These are just some of the problems we can help treat with the coordination between our pharmacist, you and your physician. Our most common method of treating pain is by formulating transdermal creams. A transdermal cream is the absorption of the medication through the skin and is an alternative to taking pills or having injections for both acute and chronic pain:

  • Muscle relaxants
  • NSAIDs
  • Anesthetics

Managing pain can be difficult; there can be too much of a dose for children or too little for adults. The side effects can cause even more frustration.
