Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain issues such as lower back pain are among the most common cause of disability in Americans below the age of 45. Musculoskeletal pain affects the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. Pain can be found in the back, neck, shoulder, and other areas as well. Daily pain can affect mobility, independence, and quality of life.

Oral NSAIDS, pain killers and muscle relaxers can be effective for treating a multitude of symptoms. However, they are not ideal for many patients due to negative systemic side effect profiles that include GI distress/ discomfort, lethargy/ sedation and cardiovascular events.

How about a highly effective, topically applied solution that is virtually devoid of side effects?

See Below for further information about active ingredients commonly used in musculoskeletal pain creams, and to Request More Information.

Ketamine acts peripherally to antagonize NMDA receptors as well as provide local anesthesia.

Flurbiprofen is an anti-inflammatory (NSAID). NSAIDs have long been used for chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain. Studies have shown higher levels reaching effected tissue when applied topically verses orally, resulting in greater local relief of symptoms.

Gabapentin is used to treat the neuropathic hyperexcitabilty at the pain site.

Baclofen and Cyclobenzaprine are muscle relaxers that when used topically are highly effective in muscle tissue at the site of pain, allowing for effective dosing with minimal systemic absorption that could cause drowsiness if taken orally.

Oral NSAIDS, pain killers and muscle relaxers can be effective for treating a multitude of symptoms. However, they are not ideal for many patients due to negative systemic side effect profiles that include GI distress/discomfort, lethargy/sedation and cardiovascular events.
