Pain is a condition that is very personalized. Pain can interfere with daily life and affect your ability to participate in activities, impact your mood and socialization, alter appetite and negatively influence one’s well-being. It is estimated that up to 40% of the U.S. population suffer or have suffered from chronic pain. Chronic pain can be the result of various problems such as injury, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cancer, surgery, and many others. Symptoms vary from patient to patient and can be mild to severe, dull to sharp and everything in between. Patients experience pain differently and our goal is to help relieve chronic pain, so patients can enjoy daily activities and have an increased in quality of life. Our pain solutions include customized topical creams, full spectrum professional grade CBD, low-dose naltrexone, intranasal ketamine, and many others.
Topical pain creams are among our most prescribed medications and work well for many patients. We can add multiple medications to a topical cream that can target the many symptoms of pain. Some common medications are anti-inflammatories, anti-depressants/seizure medications for nerve pain, muscle relaxers, and other pain relievers. We can customize a treatment that will target the type and severity of the pain experienced by each patient. Our topical creams are used for localized pain and have very little systemic absorption (meaning less side effects). They work alone or with patients’ current pain medications and may reduce the need for oral pain medications.
Full spectrum professional grade CBD is another option for chronic pain suffers. CBD works on all of the types of pain by reducing inflammation and altering our perception of pain. We have topical formulations for pain in localized area, or oral options for widespread pain. Questions about CBD? Ask one of pharmacists about CBD use for pain.
Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is used mostly for widespread pain caused by fibromyalgia or autoimmune conditions. Please visit our Auto-Immune page to learn more.
Ketamine Nasal Spray
Intranasal ketamine has a fast onset and helps to relieve pain by reducing pain communication signals, which provide relief from intense pain. We have worked with providers to use intranasal ketamine in the treatment of pain and have seen it help multiple patients reduce their oral intake of opioid prescription medications.
That’s a lot of information but we feel it is important for you to know that there are many options when it comes to your pain management. We understand how debilitating acute and chronic pain can be and are here to help! We are happy to work with you and your provider to find the best solution tailored to you!
