Consultation Services: Pain Management

We Are Problem Solvers

Pain should never be allowed to control your life without first exploring every solution available through compounded medications. We have helped end needless suffering for countless people by creating pain treatment tailored to meet their unique and specific needs.

Our goal is to create medications that deliver minimal side effects and maximum relief. Many times, smaller concentrations of medication are more effective when combined with various agents that alter the sensation of pain. In addition, certain forms of pain respond well to transdermal medication applied to trigger points.

We routinely compound medicines to treat chronic pain of the lower back, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathic pain, musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, cancer pain, migraine, and many other types.

We look forward to helping you with your pain management challenges. Feel free to contact us. We’ll work with your doctor and you’ll see what a difference personalized therapy can make!

Compounding and Pain

We overcome barriers to optimal pain and symptom control. Using a combination of active and inactive pharmaceutical ingredients to create a customized, patient specific medication we can offer almost unlimited options. The saying “ there is nothing more we can do” is not in our vocabulary.

Our perception of pain

Pain can be an unpleasant sensation that disturbs a patient’s comfort, sleep, emotion, normal activities and overall sense of well-being. We feel that pain is a not only subjective, but it is whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever the patient says it does. Pain can be influenced by: anxiety, perceptions, fatigue, prior conditioning and other psychosocial issues.

Transdermal Pain Therapies

We feel it is not always necessary to take an oral medication to have good success with pain control. Along with our clinical eexperience and according to the 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Pain Society; topical agents, used alone or in combination with other therapies, are proving to be both safe and effective in reducing pain and improving function in patients with a variety of neuropathic and non-neurophathic pain states.

Health Care Professionals Perspective

In the fast-paced health care industry we understand that there may be inadequate knowledge of pain management and assessment skills.  Fear of regulatory oversight, side effects, tolerance and overestimation of addiction risk all contribute to difficulty managing pain patients.  Notice what a 1998 study showed:

  • Fewer than 7% of physicians have had any formal education in pain assessment
  • 52% of physicians rate their pain management training as poor,
    • Leads to poor assessment and patient misinformation.

We are here to provide resources and innovative solutions to health care professionas and patients and to help them with their chronic pain cases.  Our pain specialists are always available to provide recommendations to prescribers.
