According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. We have all experienced periods of pain in our lives, but many people have chronic pain that affects their sleep, their mental health, their relationships and their quality of life. Maybe you are one of these people.
Unfortunately, pain is the most common reason that people seek medical help. Some top reasons for chronic pain include:
- Low back pain and sciatica
- Migraine headaches
- Arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis
- Nerve damage or neuropathy
- Muscle pain
These conditions have numerous over-the-counter and prescription remedies available, but they also come with a cost. Drowsiness, dizziness or stomach irritation are just a few of the typical side effects that people experience and deal with daily. Compounding may offer a better solution for you and Cornwell Pharmacy is here to help.
