What is Podiatry?
Many patients as well as physicians are still not fully aware of the potential benefits of compounding pharmacy in addressing ailments related to podiatry. Podiatry refers to the study and treatment of the feet, ankles, and lower leg areas. A lot of patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases such as diabetes and arthritis also suffer from podiatric ailments.
Symptoms of these ailments may commonly include pain, swelling, circulatory issues and neuropathy caused numbness in the lower leg and foot. Many times the patient may not find successful results or sustainable relief with conventional mass medications to treat these conditions.
How compounding can help?
An experienced compounding pharmacy can create customized medications to treat the precise podiatric needs of a patient. Compounded medications can be formulated in various ways suited for podiatric issues. For quick absorption, the medications can be created in topical form. Sometimes the drugs can be combined into a single dose for easy compliance. Professional pharmacists can help the patient in various ways to address their unique needs for podiatric treatment.
Unique formulations to address podiatric ailments can be prepared in compounding pharmacy to meet the needs of the patient population.
