Compounding Options

Pain Management

Pain Management - Achilles Tendonitis
The Achilles tendon connects the heel bone to the calf muscle. It is a common site for overuse and injury, particularly in sports. This kind of injury can be very slow to heal.
 
We compound ingredients to apply to the skin, which may increase blood flow and may speed up the healing process, while providing some pain relief. Local applications such as this may potentially cause fewer side effects than oral medications.
 
Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Pain Management - Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a mysterious chronic pain disorder that seems to attack muscles and soft tissues of the body randomly, in conjunction with generalized tiredness and stiff achiness. The pain comes and goes over time. Doctors think it may be a neurotransmitter disorder of the central nervous system.
 
At Snell's Pharmacy we have the ability to compound topical applications which seep into the skin to help relieve the muscle pain and stiffness. Medications used include Ibuprofen, Cyclobenzaprine, and Amitriptyline.
 
If you have chronic aches and pain, please talk to your doctor about topical relief, which may havefewer side effects than pills. Discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Pain Management - Generalized Pain
Pain may be managed through the intervention of analgesics (topical or internally taken pain relievers) and modifiers, or through the use of ice, heat, physical therapy and exercise, or devices such as braces and wraps.
 
Snell's Pharmacy not only sells therapeutic devices and over the counter (OTC) pain medications, but we also compound custom prescriptions to help achieve a therapeutic effect for individuals. Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Pain Management - Hemorrhoids
Internal or external inflammation of veins around the rectum comes from long hours of sitting, aging, pregnancy or chronic constipation in some 50% of the population.
 
Common - and uncomfortable - treatments include surgery, stapling or rubber band ligation. However, relief may be obtained from specially concocted suppositories or creams that reduce swelling and provide topical pain reduction.

Pain Management - Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a chronic condition of pain resulting from damage or dysfunction to the central or peripheral nervous system itself, instead of local injury.
 
Compounds which may relieve the muscle and soft tissue pain, applied directly to tissues, include Amytriptyline, Baclofen, Carbemapezine, Clonidine, Gabapentin, Ketamine, Mexiletine and Phenytoin. These topical compounds may have fewer side effects and may provide more immediate effect than pills.

Pain Management - Ostearthritis
Osteoarthritis is a breakdown of cartilage in the joints, and is a common condition of older age. As cartilage breaks down, bone ends begin to rub against each other, causing pain, stiffness, inflammation and injury. Bony growths may also complicate matters in the joint, causing 'catching' movements or immobility of the joint.
 
Compounds applied directly to the skin at the joint site may include Diclofenac, Lidocaine, Ibuprofen, Keotprofin, Nitric Oxide and Morphine. Topical application of these medicines may incur fewer side effects than those taken internally. Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
