Sports Medicine Compounding Offers More than Just Pain Relief

Helping you stay in the game

sports injury gets relief from compounded medication by Portico PharmacyEvery athlete, from professional to weekend warrior, understands that injuries and aches are a part of the game.  Whether you play or run for pure pleasure or profit, there’s no escaping the pain that comes with being involved in a sport.

The good news is that compounded medication can meet you where you are and help offer pain relief for those aching muscles and joints.  Compounded medication, unlike medication that is already manufactured and waiting for purchase, is medicine that is made especially to suit your specific needs.

Our compounding pharmacists work directly with sports medicine physicians and other area health providers to create solutions to best address and minimize your aches and pains.

So how does it work?

Pain medication can be made-to-order in several different ways.  The most obvious is the types of drugs that can be added to a pain cream or capsule.  Different injuries respond best to different types of medicine.  This is not a one-size-fits-all kind of area.  Your specific aches and pain do best with medication designed to work best on that area of the body.  Is it your elbow?  We have a medication for that.  Back pain?  We have a medication for that, too.  But just as you wouldn’t use aspirin to treat cancer, having the right medication makes all the difference when it comes to alleviating your symptoms and giving you relief.

Our compounding pharmacists also make sure the dosage fits your weight and metabolism.  What may work for one person may be too strong for another and what may be too strong for one person may be far too strong for someone else.  By taking the entirety of who you are into consideration, including any allergies or preferences you may have, we are able to make a formulation that works uniquely for you.Pain medication can be made-to-order in several different ways.  The most obvious is the types of drugs that can be added to a pain cream or capsule.  Different injuries respond best to different types of medicine.  This is not a one-size-fits-all kind of area.  Your specific aches and pain do best with medication designed to work best on that area of the body.  Is it your elbow?  We have a medication for that.  Back pain?  We have a medication for that, too.  But just as you wouldn’t use aspirin to treat cancer, having the right medication makes all the difference when it comes to alleviating your symptoms and giving you relief.
