Pain management is vital because even if you do not have a health condition or you have your disease under control, it can still cause immense pain that prevents you from living life to the fullest. Chronic pain has a number of contributing factors, which can make it a challenge to treat compared to acute pain but through our personalized treatment services, we can develop a way to help you.

One of the more effective treatments for pain management is through the use of medications that are designed to relieve pain such as NMDA antagonists, anesthetics, anticonvulsants, antiviral agents, antidepressants. We can combine these agents in order to combat the pain you are feeling and we only have to use light concentrations of these medications.

Transdermal creams and gels are created in order to provide a high local concentration of medication at the site of the pain (e.g., NSAIDs for improving joint pain), for trigger point applications (e.g., combinations of medications that are used for neuropathic pain), or a base that allows for systemic absorption. Research has shown that there are actually very few restrictions when it comes down to the kind of drug that is going to be incorporated into a compounded transdermal gel. This means medications that are administered through a transdermal application; they will not be absorbed through the gastrointestinal system and will not go through the first pass hepatic metabolism. This generally means that the side effects that come from an oral administration can be avoided.

Here are some of the many different pain conditions that we can treat through the use of compounded medications:
