Sports Medicine Compounding

 

We work together with athletes, trainers, and other health care professionals to customize medications which meet specific needs.

Athletes, coaches, trainers, team physicians, physical therapists, and even the "weekend warrior" are faced with problems such as:

  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms
  • Fungal infections of the skin and nails (athlete's foot, jock itch, and onychomycosis)
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Excessive perspiration
sports injury

Ed can help these problems and more with customized medications that contain the most appropriate ingredients in the best vehicle to most efficiently provide the needed drug to the affected area.  

Medications that relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and relax muscles can have side effects that are detrimental to athletic performance, such as drowsiness. However, when these medications are administered transdermally, the therapeutic benefit can be enhanced while significantly reducing the risk of adverse effects.

For example, research has shown that topically applied ketoprofen provides a high local concentration of drug below the site of application but decreases systemic exposure and significantly reduces the risk of gastrointestinal upset or bleeding. When properly compounded into an appropriate base, tissue concentrations of ketoprofen were found to be 100-fold greater below the application site (knee) compared to systemic concentrations. Muscle relaxants can be similarly prepared to minimize the risk of drowsiness.
