Topical Pain Management

Whether we’re weekend-warriors, elite athletes, have conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia, or are just regular people with bumps and bruises, we’ve all experienced the agony of pain and inflammation due to a misstep or injury to a muscle group. Treating such injuries can involve several modalities including immobilizing the affected joint, physical therapy and topical pain management.

How Can Compounds Help?

There are many medications that can be prepared into transdermal delivery systems to provide inflammation and pain relief directly to the injury location. Most of us are familiar with the anti-inflammatory use of NSAIDS and steroids, but compounding offers patients some extra support. The pharmacists at Abrams Royal Pharmacy are able to combine anti-inflammatories with other medications like muscle relaxers, neuropathic pain modulators, and local anesthetics to tailor the medication to your specific needs for quick relief so you can get back to doing the things you love.
