Podiatry Compounds

Although many of us take our feet for granted, as soon as something goes wrong it becomes evident that podiatric impairments can have a severe impact on our mobility and quality of life. Traditional podiatry has often managed pain and treated symptoms through systemic oral medications, but with the development of customized topical compounds, many podiatric patients are experiencing better outcomes. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we develop customized topical compounds to treat podiatric symptoms without the side effects, drug interactions, or adverse reactions that can sometimes accompany systemic oral treatments.

Topical podiatric compounds have the advantage of presenting localized treatments directly to the source of your condition. Your own personal needs and bio-chemistry are analyzed, ensuring that your customized treatment is designed for optimal efficacy, while avoiding unnecessary complications. Our topical compounds can be custom-designed to address a range of symptoms, including:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Fungal infections
  • Heel spurs, planar fasciitis, and heel pain
  • Arthritis and other joint conditions
  • Complications from diabetes
  • Warts, corns, and callouses
  • Cracked heels and dry, splitting skin
  • Hyperhydrosis
  • Bunions

Improved Quality of Care through Topical Compounding

Significant recent advances in the field of topical compounding have led to specialized delivery of needed medications into places where patients experience the most podiatric pain and discomfort. Although traditionally, oral medications have been used to treat podiatric conditions, there are many disadvantages to doing so. Since oral medications involve a systemic approach to the management of pain, inflammation, and other conditions, they naturally involve a higher risk of drug interactions, as well as adverse reactions to medication. Additionally, some patients may experience allergic reactions to inactive compounds in oral medications, such as lactose, sugar, gluten, and dyes. By contrast, application of topical compounds is formulated specially for each individual and can avoid known allergens. In addition, the localized application of treatment allows the needed medication immediate access to the area in need of care, while avoiding the systemic involvement that can cause adverse reactions.

Systemic oral pharmaceuticals often have a greater incidence of side effects than do topical compounds, and many podiatrists are reluctant to treat patients with systemic oral medications due to their prevalence. As a result, patients who do not have access to topical compounds often find themselves without the treatments they need, and as a consequence, their conditions worsen. With emerging improvements in the field of topical compounds for podiatric applications, podiatric treatment is safe, effective, and readily available, with few concerns about side effects. This allows patients to receive the relief from their conditions that may not have been offered to them using systemic oral medications.

Topical compounds can be developed to treat a unique range of symptoms affecting the individual, which differentiates them from the one-size-fits-all approach of branded oral medications. This is particularly impactful for patients with complicating systemic conditions such as diabetes, for whom adverse drug reactions or complications may be of particular concern. For these patients, topical compounds can be customized to address a range of symptoms—from inflammation, to pain and everything in between—without requiring the consumption of systemic medications that may complicate their other conditions. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we specialize in the development of unique topical compounds, designed to provide optimal care for each patient’s individual podiatric needs.
