It doesn’t matter whether you are a professional athlete or just play on your company’s softball team—our compounding pharmacy can help you find the right treatments for many problems that are often unresponsive to conventional therapy.
Why should you rely on compounding over manufactured medications? Good question. First, no two injuries or conditions are the same, so prescribing a one-size-fits-all medication to handle whatever is keeping you from staying at the top of your game probably won’t get you the results you’re looking for. Second, medications that you can find at a regular pharmacy might not come in forms that are optimal for you. For instance, did you know that we can compound pain medications using special topical dosages and bases like creams or gels that you can absorb through the skin? Direct application to the pain site provides relief much more quickly than taking something orally.
Or maybe you want to prevent the aches and pains that happen after you’re done competing. We can help with that, too. Our pharmacist can compound a topical medication using antispasmodic drugs and moisturizers that promote healing.
As you can see, compounding is a versatile tool that many athletes use to keep them in tip-top shape. Here are a few more reasons you should consider trying it.
You Can Customize Unique Treatments
One of the challenges that health care professionals face is trying to treat unique patients using limited treatment options. Every athlete is unique, so why wouldn’t you treat them individually using medications that are tailored to their needs?
Our compounding pharmacy allows sports medicine physicians to create a treatment plan that truly addresses the needs of each of their patients.
Let’s illustrate this with an example. Say that one athlete injures her ankle. She recovers quickly using conventional medicine. Now say another athlete hurts his ankle in the exact same way. He is in much more pain than the other athlete. His healing process takes much longer and requires treatments that the other athlete’s injury did not need to recover fully.
This is just one example of a situation that might require compounded medicine. Because we can create medicines with variable dosages, we can treat injuries based on the patient’s needs.
Compounding Can Treat Several Ailments
Athletes are often harder on their bodies than people who do not participate in sports. Because of this fact, many suffer from more than one ailment at a time. Common ailments include:
· Carpal tunnel
· Athlete’s foot
· And many more
As your compounding pharmacy, we will work with your sports medicine physician to come up with treatments and medications that address several ailments at once.
