Pain is the most common symptom people seek medical help for

Pain may result from inflammation or changes to the nervous system due to injury or disease. Commonly reported types of pain include lower back pain, severe headache or migraine, neck pain and facial pain. Chronic pain refers to pain conditions that persist due to a disease or injury that remains in the nervous system. This type of pain may affect a patient for weeks, months or years.

Many common prescription and over-the-counter oral pain relief medications help with acute and chronic pain. However, taking these medications such as an opioid can result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, decreased cognition and sedation. Ibuprofen taking for a longer period of time may cause stomach bleeding, and long-term use of acetaminophen is associated with liver toxicity.  Moreover, treatment of several chronic pain usually includes the use of multiple medications that may have limited pain-relieving effect, but multiple side effects. So what can you do to avoid these harmful side effects and stay pain free?    

Topical pain relief cream may be the answer that you’ve been looking for. By putting one or more pain relief medications in a topical cream, a compounded medication can be applied directly at the painful site, providing targeted pain relief and avoiding side effects mentioned above.
