Sports Nutrition and Medicine

Basketball girl

Athletes are subject to challenges such as scheduling demands, travel, improper nutrition, lifestyle management.

For athletic athletes, the year basically breaks down into preseason, regular season and off season. Each cycle places different demands on the athlete’s body. Preseason is a little more demanding, and the focus is more skill acquisition. For a baseball player, for instance, there’s more batting, throwing and running. Most injuries occur during the season due to competition. In the off season the athlete is actually working about a six-hour block of time a day, breaking down the body and then building it back up to be stronger.

Types of Sports

There are mainly two types of sports: contact sports and repetitive sports. In contact sports such as soccer, football and hockey, you see more acute injuries; while in games like golf, tennis, baseball and other repetitive sports, you see a lot more chronic injuries. Inherently, each sport has challenges in and of itself. Compounding comes into play a lot more is with repetitive exercises that cause chronic overuse syndrome.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Commercially available medications often produce unwanted systemic adverse effects and can interact with medication the patient may be taking for other diseases. Due to the risk of theses unwanted effects, healthcare providers and patients are seeking alternative options.

One approach is the topical application of compounded creams, lotions, aerosols or patches directly onto the site of the pain. As a result, they target the site of pain directly. These preparations allow for a higher concentration of the active agent to be used with minimal side effects. Topical Agents are proving to be both effective and safe in reducing pain and improving function in patients with a variety of pain states. Research indicates that topical analgesics create an effective option with minimal risk of significant systemic absorption, drug interactions and a reduced incidence of systemic adverse effects, such as peptic ulcer disease and GI haemorrhage.

Transdermal pain creams allow for topical, high strength combinations that avoid cardiovascular, neurological, anti-cholinergic and GI side effects experienced by taking the individual oral forms. The following ingredients can be combined in a customized pain cream using a transdermal cream base.

Our specialised laboratory produces a wide range of topical creams, ointments, gels, lotions, sprays and patches, to help treat various pain conditions and aid in compliance. Our pain creams incorporate active ingredients which have resulted in effective pain relief as shown in comprehensive, evidence based studies.
