Customized Care for Athletes: Sports Medicine Compounding

Compounded medications can provide a unique solution for patients when commercial drugs are not available. Most often, people associate compounded medicine with patients with allergies or sensory issues. Overlooked is the fact that personalized medication can be a helpful resource for athletes.

Berkley Pharmacy in Warren, MI has been a compounding pharmacy for seven years. They have 8 staff members and currently serve 20-30 patients a week. Sports medicine compounding is one of their personalized medicine specialties. They work with athletes to treat back sprains, joint pain, and older sports-related injuries. They also treat a common injury in soccer players, which is nerve damage in their feet as a result of wearing cleats repetitively year after year. Berkley’s pharmacists create a compounded neuropathy cream as a treatment for the nerve damage.

The compounding pharmacy staff at Berkley works closely with sports medicine doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors to establish a personalized care plan for their patient athletes. Berkley Pharmacy also compounds medications for Athlete’s Foot, the most common type of fungal infection, and additionally for the following types of sports-related conditions:

  • Blisters
  • Corns/Callouses

Selma Dahalic, Director of Marketing at Berkley Pharmacy, shared the following patient testimonial with MEDISCA:

“Our patient has been using our Foot Circulation cream for the past 4 years. It took about 4 months of the physician’s professional advice, along with some ingredient tweaking and modification to create a customized compound that truly made a positive difference for the patient. The cream has reduced his numbness and tingly sensations due to the several injuries he has sustained during his soccer career. Not only has this compound improved his foot circulation but has also improved his gait (walk posture), by giving him more feelings in both of his feet.”

Berkley Pharmacy offers free delivery to their patients’ home or office throughout the state of Michigan. MEDISCA is proud to work with and support its customers like Berkley Pharmacy. To learn more about Berkley Pharmacy in Warren, MI please visit https://berkleypharmacy.com/.
