Are you one of the millions of Americans who suffer from the various forms of arthritis?  Why tolerate unnecessary pain?  Or put up with the side effects of the medications frequently prescribed for treatment?  Why not allow Hook's Apothecary to try to find an alternative to your current therapy?

Medications that are commonly used to treat arthritis can cause more harm than good, especially when taken orally.  While these medications treat the symptoms associated with arthritis, they can also damage the stomach lining, among other side effects.  However, most of these drugs can be reformulated to be applied directly to the site of the pain.  When applied to the affected joints, pain relief is often more effective, quicker, and virtually free of the common side effects.

Topical preparations come in several forms:

  • Gels/Creams/Ointments/Alcohol Gels
  • Sprays
  • Stick Applicator Formulations
