You’re a weekend warrior who plays in a slow-pitch softball league with your friends on Sundays. It’s your turn to bat, and you rip the ball deep into the corner. As you round first base you suddenly feel a sharp pain in the back of your leg. After easing into second base you call for a pinch runner and limp back to the dugout, the pain increasing with every step. You have just pulled your hamstring, and as the realization sets in you begin to think about your options.
Up until this point dealing with injuries was always the same. The RICE system (rest, ice, compress, elevate) had worked well in the past, so why not go with that? However, you may be interested to know that there is another way, mostly known only to professional athletes and trainers, to alleviate the pain.
Compounding, the process of combining a set of ingredients into a pharmaceutical product, in sports medicine has been shown to have enormous benefits for the injured athlete. This stems from the pharmacists ability to work closely with the trainers or team doctors to customize the dosage strengths, potency and delivery system of the compound to fit the athlete.
Juros’ Home Medical & Pharmacy’s Compounding Center provides sports medicine compounding for everyone from the weekend warrior with a pulled hamstring to serious athletes looking for a more proficient way to heal their injuries. With the ability to create topical creams, transdermal gels or other solutions to get a more efficient healing effect from the anti-flammatory, muscle relaxant or other medications, Juro’s helps speed up the recovery process in a safe manner.
No matter your skill level, sport or competition Juro’s can create the custom compound you need to heal your body and get back to the sport you love.
