Sciatica Pain Treatment
Sciatica can be immobilizing and exhaustive. The pain and discomfort associated with sciatica pain can be debilitating. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we make customized topical formulations that help mitigate and alleviate these painful sciatica symptoms.
We use a combination of topical ingredients in a therapeutic base that blocks nerve pain and relaxes the muscles contributing the discomfort. With our treatments, many patients are able to manage the sciatica pain and go back to doing the activities that they love.

Commonly Used Ingredients in Sciatica Pain Topical Medications
Sciatic nerve pain goes all the way from the lower back into the buttocks towards the legs. This is commonly called sciatica and can cause distressing symptoms that may affect everyday life. AIP’s topical medications are known to provide localized and immediate pain relief. Our gels, ointments, and creams can help relieve nerve pain by reducing inflammation, altering blood flow, and creating a numbing effect.
These are a few common topical medication preparations which can help relieve sciatica:
- Trolamine salicylate
- Methyl salicylate
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
AIP topical creams developed for sciatic act locally and can provide immediate pain relief.
Benefits of Using Compounded Sciatica Topical Cream
AIP compounded pain cream for managing sciatica pain is designed specifically for targeting and treating the pain site with customized formulations. We try and avoid most complications common with other pain treatment approaches. The cream provides a convenient, flexible and effective solution for a wide variety of pain related conditions.
- Targeted Relief
Topical pain creams are designed to provide higher concentrations of pain medication at the site of pain for more targeted relief. AIP pharmacists can work with your doctor to create a customized formulation that meets your unique needs. You get to enjoy the combined benefits of personalized treatment, precise dosing and multiple effective ingredients for optimal pain relief.
- Fewer Side Effects
AIP pain formulations for sciatica are applied topically. They don’t circulate throughout the body. This means you receive a powerful pain medication at the spot of sciatica pain. Furthermore, the pain medication is less likely to interact with other medications and will cause fewer side effects. There is less risk of addiction and dependence since the pain cream doesn’t get absorbed throughout the body.
- Transdermal Base
We use an anhydrous silicone base designed to effectively deliver pain medication. This transdermal base has been tested and proven to deliver 4 drugs at the same time. It’s a more effective delivery mechanism for medications and can be applied more quickly than other topical bases.
