Athletes need to find medications that will provide effective treatment so that sports injuries will heal quickly. If you are training at a competitive level or following a regular training schedule, you don’t want to be out of commission for very long. You want to deal with the problem appropriately and safely and treat your injury in a safe and effective way that will prevent any further physical damage.

Sports medicine compounding from The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills is the best way to deal with your injuries and get you back on the field, court or track quickly.

What Is Pharmacy Compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is considered part art and part science. Compounding pharmacists prepare customized medications for patients who need something other than standard formulations, dosages or ingredients. Medications can be prepared to meet their specific needs.

Custom Formulations Available

A compounding pharmacist, like ours here at The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills can prepare a special formulation to treat blisters or calluses or make a custom formulation to treat athlete’s foot or other anti-fungal conditions. Rather than taking several drugs following an injury, a compounding pharmacist can combine more than one medication into a single dose.

Dosages Can Be Adjusted According To Metabolism And Weight

Athletes are particular about their diet, which causes them to carry more muscle and less fat than the average person. As a result, they burn calories at a different rate than a more sedentary person. Our compounding pharmacists take these factors into consideration when preparing medications for higher level athletes, to influence a faster and more effective healing.

Delivery System For Medications Can Be Altered

Compounded medications are available in a number formulations. Tablets and capsules must pass through the digestive tract before they make their way into your system and can start to work. If you are taking an anti-inflammatory or a muscle relaxant, you run the risk of experiencing stomach upset or other issues. Our compounding pharmacists can provide you with a transdermal pain cream for sports injuries that can be applied directly to the area. You can get the relief you need quickly, with fewer side effects.
