Champs Pharmacy does not compound any medication without a valid prescription from your physician.
Treatment options for orthopedic related conditions focus on relieving the symptoms and improving joint function. Your doctor may try several treatments of a combination of treatments to determine which works best for you. Most commonly prescribed are analgesics, to help reduce the pain. NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) and corticosteroids are commonly prescribed to help relieve pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other similar bone conditions. A few of these commercially available medications can come in the form of large tablets that some patients find very hard to swallow. We can compound those large tablets into an alternative form to ensure you are getting the most out of your medications. We offer variations of the mass produced medications in the form of custom-flavored oral suspensions, topical creams, capsules, and dissolvable troches.
It is important at all ages to protect the health our muscles, joints and bones from injury and disease. Our bones provide structure, anchor muscles and protect organs. While it is important to build strong, healthy bones during childhood and adolescence, it is equally important to protect your bones during adulthood.
While there are many conditions that affect our bones and joints, arthritis and osteoporosis are among the top. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness and swelling. Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become more fragile and likely to fracture. Osteoporosis can be caused by lack of calcium and Vitamin D. Bone loss can be caused by a lack of estrogen in females and lack of testosterone in males. While there is no cure for osteoporosis or arthritis, there are some compounded medications that can help relieve the symptoms associated with these conditions.
In addition to our many other compounding services, Champs Pharmacy is excited to offer compounded medications to treat the symptoms of many orthopedic conditions. Our compounding pharmacists can create custom medications to help reduce joint, nerve and muscle pain associated with these conditions. We most commonly compound topical creams and gels to assist with the reduction of pain and inflammation. We have a solution for any condition at any age. We can combine multiple medications into one easy to use dose.
