Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons that people seek medical care. According to a study conducted by the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 20.4% of US adults have chronic pain and 8% of US adults have high impact pain. High impact pain can impact work and life activities as well as lead to a decreased quality of life. Pain management can help alleviate chronic pain and allow a person to live their life more fully again.
Many of the common treatments for chronic pain come with complications of their own. These complications include addictive properties, gastrointestinal (GI) distress, drowsiness, and dizziness to name a few. Compounding allows for a targeted approach to treatment.

Transdermal pain creams allow for localized treatment without systemic side effects. Multiple ingredients can be combined in one cream to increase compliance as well as treating multiple symptoms. Examples of the types of ingredients that can be used in our transdermal pain creams include:
All transdermal pain creams are made in a liposomal cream base unless otherwise specified. The liposomal cream base is scientifically proven to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin. It is also a smooth cream that leaves behind no sticky residue. Transdermal creams allow for localized action without the systemic side effects of oral medications.
