derived from the Latin peone and the Greek poine, meaning
"penalty" or "punishment"
have always known and sought relief from pain. In fact, the act of
relieving pain is probably as old as the pharmacy profession itself.
Today, painís impact on society is still great and, indeed, pain
complaints are the number one reason patients seek medical advice.
advancements which have been made in pain control medications, the
commercially available options do not always suit the needs of the
pain patient. Chronic pain patients in particular are often considered
by the medical profession to be the perfect example of the
"problem patient". Many have been treated by numerous
physicians and have been placed on multiple medications, with
unsuccessful results. A physician treating this type of patient needs
as many therapeutic options at their disposal as possible.
This is precisely the
goal of Central Pharmacy in pain management; to provide alternatives
for the multitude of problems faced by the pain patient.
At Central Pharmacy, we
believe there should be no "penalty" for wanting to be pain
free and we want to help achieve that goal.

examples of solutions which we have used to improve the pain
