Custom Medication for Sports Medicine
Staying Physically Active Is Important
Injuries to athletes can happen at any time. However, it’s when you’re training hardest for an upcoming event that they’re the most inconvenient.
Injuries can derail the training schedule you may be following, prevent you from playing in a much anticipated game, or cause enough discomfort to lose the motivation to keep exercising regularly. There are many different sports-related injuries we see athletes trying to recover from such as:
- Ankle Sprains
- Groin Pulls
- Hamstring Strains
- Shin Splints
- Knee Injuries
- Tennis Elbow
These injuries and many more can be very frustrating and could sideline you for much longer than you would like.
Unique Athletes, Unique Medication Options
Every athlete is unique, and no two athletic injuries are exactly the same. This is why each athletic recovery should be tailored to the individual.
Makers of mass-produced medications often formulate their products based on an “average patient”: average body weight, average pain tolerances, and so on. Your symptoms, body weight, pain tolerance, and other factors are unique to you, so we formulate specific compounds, in desired dosage forms, and in precise strengths, to meet your specific needs.
Our pharmacists are experts at preparing customized medication options to help you deal with your athletic-related injury.
Getting you Back on the Road Again
Working with you and your provider, our pharmacy team may be able to provide alternate ways to deliver your medication, including:
- Topical Gels
- Topical Sprays
- Nasal Sprays
- And More
You may be taking a variety of medications to address your aches and pain. Often, we can compound your various medications into a single capsule or topical preparation for your convenience.
With topical compounded prescription medications, we see many patients receive convenient, targeted relief, in precise dosages, and with potentially fewer side effects.
If a sports-related injury has you sitting on the sidelines, whether you’re a professional athlete, regular gym member, or just beginning your road back to a healthy lifestyle, please feel free to contact one of our highly trained pharmacists to learn how custom-made medications can benefit your recovery.
