Sports Medicine Compounding Solution for Athletes

At PenCol Specialty Pharmacy, we understand that regular athletic activity can lead to injury, pain, and infection if individuals are not taking proper care of their bodies.

Our compounding pharmacists can help athletes, coaches, trainers, team physicians, physical therapists, and even the “weekend warrior” stay on top of their games!

Did you know that adolescents, aged 13-15, account for the majority of sports injuries in youth? By tailoring care to the patient’s age and lifestyle, we can promote prompt healing and decrease the chances of a repeat injury. We can customize medications for problems that are often unresponsive to conventional therapy.

For example, analgesics and anti-inflammatories often have side effects, such as drowsiness, that are problematic for an athlete of any age. PenCol Specialty Pharmacy can compound medications in topical dosage forms that are absorbed through the skin and provide relief directly at the application site while reducing undesirable effects that can hamper performance. Odorless and easy-to-apply creams or gels can be compounded using the most appropriate types of medications based on the individual’s specific needs. The use of compounded topical therapy can play an important role in getting adolescents back in the game!

PenCol Specialty Pharmacy’s compounding professionals ensure that each patient has the right medication, dose, and delivery method needed to sustain their high-impact lifestyle. PenCol Specialty Pharmacy has experience helping athletes of all types. Recreational, professional, and youth athletes require pain and concussion therapies specific to their sport, lifestyle, and age. Examples of compounds we regularly formulate include:

• Topical creams/ointments/gels

• Preparations for laceration healing

• Pre-game rubs

• Nutritional Supplements

• Rehydration drinks

• Anti-fungals

We work with athletic trainers, team physicians, physical therapists, patients, and their private physicians to ensure everyone with an active lifestyle is game-day ready!
