How To Manage Pain

Pain is one of the most common reasons we consult a physician, yet it is one of the most undertreated, chronic issues people deal with. If the pain isn’t treated properly, it can result in needless suffering, lost productivity, and excessive healthcare expenditures. Chronic pain afflicts approximately 10-20% of the adult population in the form of arthritis, muscle and joint strain, fibromyalgia, and neuropathic pain. However, much of that pain can be relieved with proper treatment.
 
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to get the important medicine to work almost immediately? Now there is away: transdermal pain medicine, where the medicine isn’t ingested but applied to the skin where the pain is. Brilliant! Right? A&R Pharmacy can work with you and your physician to get the right medicine to take care of the pain.
 
In fact, think of your physician and A&R Pharmacy as a team, working together to find an answer that will meet your pain management needs. As soon as pain begins, it is important to talk to your health care provider who is knowledgeable in pain management and tell them you would like to try a topical pain medication. Your physician can contact us and we’ll inform him about the ways transdermal medication can work for you.
