Topical Pain Management

HB Apothecary compounds medications for patients with both chronic and acute arthritic, joint, and muscle pain. We can prepare numerous types of creams, ointments, and gels that can be used in phonophoresis or iontophoresis procedures during physical therapy sessions.


One of HB Apothecary's unique options for pain management is custom compounded transdermal technology. Transdermal therapy, an alternative to traditional means of drug administration, is the absorption of medication through the skin. Transdermal medications deliver high concentrations directly to the affected area(s) without the unwanted side effects related with some oral medications. This can lead to increased compliance. Our compounding team will work closely with patients and their doctors to prepare customized dosage forms to meet each patient's individual needs.

The following topical medications can be compounded in cream or transdermal formulations in various strengths/concentrations:
  • Diclofenac
  • Diclofenac/Cyclobenzaprine
  • Gabapentin/Clonidine/Lidocaine
  • Gabapentin/Ketoprofen/Amitriptyline/Tetracaine/Deoxy-D-Glucose
