Running backs for pro football teams rely upon topical compounds to help them recover from game aches. Major league pitchers recover from inflammation to the throwing shoulder more quickly due to topical agents prepared by compounding pharmacists working in conjunction with team healthcare providers. The secret they use to get back in the game is pharmacy compounding, and it’s available for everyone – not just the pros.
Whether you’re a workout enthusiast who needs to soothe aches and strains, a high school player recovering from a sports injury, or a weekend warrior trying to ease pain during the work week, compounding can provide serious benefits for every kind of athlete.
Compounded medication can help you with the following:
- Sprains and Strains
- Pregame Rubs
- Excessive Perspiration
- Topical Anesthetics
- Making Physical Therapy more Effective
Sports activities and fitness programs focus upon an athlete’s strengths and are customized to meet his or her individual needs. So why not do the same with medication needs?
- Our compounding pharmacists have the ability to combine various drugs into a single dosage form to combat nerve pain, customize topical antifungal medications, or formulate special preparations to heal blisters or calluses.
- Compounded sun block creams, lotions, and lip balms may help protect athletes participating in outdoor sports.
Just like a football player and a marathon runner require different training programs, their body types may require different amounts of medication to speed recovery or treat muscle pain. Yet commercially available products often come in a limited variety of strengths. Compounding medications offers a way to calibrate the exact amount of medication to a certain need and body type, resulting in more accurate dosing.
Working closely with both you and your healthcare provider, compounding allows our pharmacists to prepare medication in strengths and delivery systems that are just right for your body, for the ultimate in therapy.
Our compounding pharmacy can help you get back in the game by providing relief with potentially fewer side effects and less overall medication.
