Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Unfortunately, commercially available pain medications can have unwanted side effects associated with them such as stomach irritation or dizziness. Compounding pain medications can help! It offers personalized pain relief by providing alternative methods of delivery through the process of combining ingredients of traditional oral pain medication in a topical gel, cream, or spray that can be applied directly to the site of pain.
Pain management is essential because uncontrolled pain prevents you from working productively, enjoying recreational activities, or taking pleasure in your time with family and friends. Chronic pain may have a myriad of causes and perpetuating factors, and therefore can be much more difficult to manage than acute pain, requiring a multidisciplinary approach and customized treatment protocols to meet your specific needs. Struggling with chronic pain does not have to be a daily activity. Compounding allows for customized pain management by tailoring the strengths and combinations of pain medications to the individual needs of each patient.
