Sports Medicine Compounding
Sports injuries, such as sprains, strains, lacerations, and fractures can cause pain, inflammation, skin infection, and other afflictions. Sports related injuries can occur not only due to wear and tear arising from diverse and rigorous physical activities, but also in younger athletes who may suffer sports accidents, collisions, slips, and falls. Even weekend enthusiasts and adventure travelers or those who perform regular workouts at the gym may sustain bodily injuries.
American Integrative Pharmacy works with physical therapists, sports medicine doctors, and personal and athletic trainers to provide advanced compounding medications for their patients. Our customized sports medicine solutions can help patients manage pain comfortably while they heal, rehabilitate faster, and achieve more effective recovery.
Our experienced compounding pharmacists will provide the optimal dosage and appropriate delivery form that is necessary for the athlete to recover sustainably and continue without difficulty with their physically active lifestyle. Whether you are a top sports professional, a high school player, or a weekend workout warrior, our customized sports medicine solutions can provide proven benefits for all types of athletes.

Topical Medications and Other Sports Med Formulations
Topical gels are among the most commonly requested delivery mechanisms at American Integrative Pharmacy to treat sports injuries. We can provide pain relievers, anti-bacterials, anti-fungals, anti-inflammatories, and other medications in the form of transdermal gels and topical creams and ointments for maximum effect in the shortest possible time.
We take care to use pharmaceutical grade ingredients that minimize your risk of systemic side effects, such as drowsiness, gastric discomfort, and cognitive issues that could pose difficulties in athletic performance. Chronic neuropathic pain arising from nerve-related injuries sometimes requires extended medication use. Our pharmacists can provide pain gels and topical NSAIDs to improve the condition and help you achieve sustainable relief from pain and inflammation.
