Participating in any sport or fitness activity, at any level, can result in injury that may require a variety of treatments. Whatever the injury, compounded medications are available in different strengths as well as unique dosage forms to provide a personalized treatment. Compounded medications can help you get back into the game much faster and are not just for professional athletes but are available to everyone.
Compounded medications can treat pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, bacterial/fungal infections, and neuralgia. In addition, compounded medications can help treat excessive sweating, can be used for pre-game rubs, and can be used with iontophoresis and phonophoresis technologies, which are used to enhance drug penetration through the skin. Many oral medications that are traditionally used to manage sports injuries, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can cause undesirable side effects that can negatively affect athletic performance. However, these medications, if used topically, can ease inflammation and pain, with fewer undesirable side effects. In short, compounded sports medicines offer the ability to supply key ingredients in strengths and delivery systems that most effectively provide relief and recovery.
