According to the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. There are a number of different factors that can cause chronic pain, this can range anywhere from an injury to a more serious underlying issue.
Due to the fact that pain management is such a broad area of medicine, it requires a unique approach. At the Town Total Compounding Center we focus in on each and every patient’s unique needs to determine the best course of treatment for his/her pain. We make it our priority to provide alternative approaches for managing our patients' pain.
A 2006 survey of 303 patients suffering from chronic pain reported that more than half of pain sufferers (51%) felt that they had little or no control over their pain. Fortunately, compounded pain management medications allow patients to manage their pain in a safe and effective way. At the Town Total Compounding Center we assess each patient’s situation and then execute a treatment plan, customizing their pain medications to provide maximum efficacy. We can combine a variety of medications and create unique dosage deliveries to target and treat pain right at the source of the issue.
