For some people pain has simply become a daily fact of life. Many are so used to the dull ache that accompanies everyday activities that they feel like it is simply their burden to bear. In fact, pain is one of the most common reasons people consult a physician. Yet frequently pain is inadequately assessed and under treated, resulting in unnecessary suffering, lost productivity, and excessive healthcare expenditures as well as the belief that you must simply learn to live this way.
In fact, chronic pain afflicts approximately 10-20% of the adult population. Much of that pain however can be relieved with proper treatment and the proper partnership with the right physician and pharmacist.
Forms of chronic pain include:
- Neuropathic pain (diabetic neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia, post mastectomy pain, phantom limb pain, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy [RSD or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome])
- Musculoskeletal (back, knee, hip) pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Cancer pain
Our compounding pharmacists (in concert with your physician), have the ability to identify multiple agents with alternate actions to increase pain control and decrease adverse side effects and reactions. You no longer need to feel as though living with pain must be built into your everyday routine. Let us help you get back on track and get your life back.
