Our compounding specialists will work with your prescriber to determine a formulation which provides the most benefit with the lowest risk. Anti-inflammatory medication can be applied directly to the site in order to provide faster relief while also avoiding the gastrointestinal side effects associated with this drug class. Topical anesthetic medication may also be applied in order to directly reduce pain from activity.
A pregame topical rub formulation can contain numerous agents which help to prepare muscles and joints for competition. These creams, lotions, or ointments can help to “warm up” the body by increasing blood flow to the area which prepares the body for physical activity and helps to avoid injury. Some preparations include an anti-spasmodic agent in order to prevent muscles from cramping during rigorous activity. Our preparations are very different from the commercially available products which leave patients smelling like an old medicine chest. We are able to combine the agents in a pleasantly scented, non-greasy formula which absorbs quickly and leaves behind no trace of the formulation.
