Is there anything else beside medication that might help my pain?


There are many different ways to manage your pain, medication being one of them. However there are also drug-free options available that many aren’t aware of.

Drug-free treatments such as topical gels can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, such as Flexiseq, which is clinically proven to relive joint pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.

A TENS machine is also a drug-free option for effective pain relief. With a low-voltage current this device blocks pain signals to your brain to reduce pain levels.

Ask in store and our Pharmacist can advise on what’s best for you.

Whatever pain you’re experiencing, we offer a FREE Pain Management Service, which involves a private, one-to-one consultation with your Pharmacist. They’ll take you through our Pain Control Test to find ways to ease your pain, giving you personalised recommendations as well as ongoing support.
