Pain Management and Sports Medicine
Take Control Of Your Pain, Take Control Of Your Life
Millions of Americans suffer from some type of acute or chronic pain each year. Regardless of the cause, this can be debilitating and may drastically affect the quality of your life. It is a complex condition with not only a physical impact but also takes an emotional and mental toll. At Akina Pharmacy, we understand our patients and we play a crucial role in coordinated efforts with you and your physician to provide for you the best possible treatment. We encourage active participation in regaining control of your life – because you deserve it. There are options to help those who, on a day to day basis, struggle with pain. From alternative dosage forms to the combination of multiple medications into one preparation, compounding can play a valuable role in improving the outcome of your pain management therapy. If you are an athlete suffering from pain, many oral medications have unwanted side effects such as drowsiness that will impede on your ability to perform on the field. Some of these drugs can be prepared in a topical dosage form that can be applied as a cream, reducing undesired effects of oral medications.
We Offer Convenient Compounded Dosage Forms Such As:
- Topical Gels
- Topical Creams
- Topical Sprays
- Sublingual tablets Taking into consideration the complexity with which pain conditions may present, very specific strengths may be required to provide the best possible relief. Compounding these medications allows the physician and the pharmacist to work together to tailor to your special needs.
