Are you in pain? No two people are alike and everyone experiences pain differently. Because your pain is unique, so too should be your pain relief strategy and customized medication may help. If you struggle with chronic pain (nerve, muscle, or joint) and find it difficult to find relief, our laboratory can offer a pain management assessment and present you with multiple options for treatment, both prescription and non-prescription.
Our compounding laboratory team can help solve these problems and others by preparing customized medications that will efficiently deliver the needed drug to the affected area. For instance, transdermal therapy, which refers to medication that is applied directly to the skin, can relieve pain, reduce inflammation and relax muscles with its biggest advantage being that it can deliver the active medical ingredients directly to the affected area. Transdermal therapy may also reduce the number and severity of side effects you may experience compared with your current medication regimen.
