TRANSDERMAL PAIN CREAMS
Transdermal (trans = through, dermal = skin) medications are an excellent alternative for people who might have digestive disorders, trouble swallowing, or for poor blood flow due to diabetes and other conditions.
By applying the medication right where it hurts, you receive quick relief. The cream doesn’t have to be broken down in your stomach before it goes into your blood stream and then throughout your entire body before a small amount finally finds that injury. Topical Creams treat that injury right away, reducing the pain and inflammation quickly.
