There are several different types of pain, such as inflammatory and neuropathic (nerve) pain. Many times, the pain felt is a combination of these.  Each medication has a different mechanism of action, therefore targets the pain from a different angle. The use of more than one medication may be required to achieve optimal pain relief. With compounded topical pain creams, we are able to combine these different modes of action into one prescription. Another very valuable source to treat pain is the MLS laser. It is a non-invasive, safe, pain free way to treat pain.  Make an appointment with one of our doctors to determine how this could work to relieve your pain.
