My foot & ankle specialist prescribed a compounded transdermal cream for nerve pain along the outside of my foot right below the ankle from toes to heels & it helps. I’m also been using it for fibromyalgia pain. I recently tried it for varicose vein pain & have found it works for that too. Very pleased with results. I am diabetic so it also greatly helps with diabetic nerve pain in the feet. Very easy to use, mine comes in a clear plastic container that dispenses the right amount for each dose much like a lotion pump. Just need to rub it in well. No mess, no pill. I think a physician has to place the order with the pharmacy.
As with most other SI Joint Dysfunction treatments, not every treatment type is right or effective for every patient. In the case of SI joint injection specifically, the treatment is deemed as a positive response when the patient achieves significant relief or improvement in function related to activities that had otherwise caused pain before the injections were administered. For some patients, this length of time this relief lasts may be too short to act as an effective treatment. In these cases, other treatment options may need to be further explored.
