Compounding offers several solutions to help ease the pain of arthritis, neuropathy or other types of joint pain. Oral medications expose the whole body to the effects of that medication which may lead to unwanted side effects, drug interactions or worsening of other diseases.

Transdermal gels are compounded using a special penetration enhansing base to help drive certain medications through the skin to the underlying cause of your pain. These medications can include:
