Living with pain is not pleasant. There are many people that suffer daily with an injury or unknown problem that causes pain. The standard treatment for pain is typically an oral drug whether its an NSAID (Celebrex), Opiate (Hydrocodone, Oxycodone), or Tylenol. If you have been on any of these medications for long you are familiar with the side effects, (Nausea, Constipation, Somnolence). While it does have its place, do you really need a strong oral pain medication when the pain is in your hand or leg from a sprain or minor injury?
