Pain is a complex condition, divided into categories of acute and chronic. Acute pain is usually caused by an accident or tissue damage. As the injury heals the pain usually disappears. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists for longer than 3 months. Statistics show that:
- The incidence of pain rises with advancing age.
- Women are more likely to be in pain than men.
- The most commonly reported pain is back pain.
- At any given time, about one third of Australians are in pain.
Unique options are available for pain management. These include natural, over the counter, internal anti-inflammatory medicine as well as transdermal compounded formulations. Pain responds best to combined internal oral supplements with external topical applications. Conditions for which treatments are available include:
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Back pain
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Post-herpetic neuralgia
- Sports injury
