Sports Medicine Compounding

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.

Sports medicine compounding – the best way to get back in the game.

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?

A compounding pharmacist may be able to combine various drugs into a single dosage form

  • To combat nerve pain
  • Customize topical antifungal medications
  • Formulate special preparations to heal blisters or calluses.
  • Compounded sun block creams, lotions, and lip balms may help protect athletes participating in outdoor sports.

Working closely with both the athlete and a healthcare provider, compounding allows pharmacists to prepare medication in strengths and delivery systems that are just right for that particular athlete’s body, for the ultimate in therapy.

Strength Variations

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 offers a way to calibrate the exact amount of medication to a certain need and body type, resulting in more accurate dosing.

Unique Dosage Forms

Another important benefit is the compounding pharmacist’s ability to alter the delivery system of medications. Capsules and tablets taken orally must pass through a patient’s digestive tract before making their way into the system. For anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and other medications, this can result in gastrointestinal side effects. Topical medications allow the drug to bypass the gastrointestinal tract and potentially minimize those side effects. A compounding pharmacist can prepare custom topical creams, transdermal gels or solutions that may not be commercially available. By treating the pain at its trigger point, relief and recovery can be strengthened.

Personalized prescription compounding may be just what you need to get back in action!
