Pain Relief May Soon Get Safer and Easier

Handling Pennsylvania workers’ compensation cases, we see a wide variety of work injuries. From problems with the neck and the back, to shoulders, elbows, knees, hands and everywhere in between. The one constant, though, is pain. Whether the injured worker has a herniated disc in the back, a broken arm, or a sprain or strain of a muscle, the injury usually involves pain.

To treat pain, and inflammation, in an acute work injury, doctors often prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or, NSAID for short). However, according to a recent article on The Medical News website, Transdel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has a new approach which they say is safer and more effective for pain relief than standard NSAID medications.

Recent clinical testing has reportedly been successful for Ketotransdel, an alternative to standard NSAIDs (which are in the form of a pill that is swallowed). Ketotransdel has a transdermal delivery system (or, in other words, this medication is applied to the skin, not a pill to be swallowed).

According to lead clinical investigator Evan F. Ekman, M.D. and President of Southern Orthopaedic Sports Medicine and Medical Director of Palmetto Health Parkridge Surgery Center, Ketotransdel will provide effective pain relief without the risks of standard NSAID medications, “which are associated with gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and other medical problems.”

Any advances in managing pain, even if only in the acute stage, is a benefit to the injured worker, not only in PA, but throughout our Country.
