Today, individual medications are engineered en masse. They may not treat certain symptoms and pain associated with the condition that is being treated. Instead, these medicines treat more generalized symptoms experienced by most people. Recent studies have shown that 40% of people who reported having severe and moderate pain are not receiving adequate relief.
What is compounding pharmacy?
The science in compounding pharmacies isn’t a new idea. It has been around for more than a century. The evolution of generic drug companies and medications geared towards broad audiences have caused their disappearance. However, we’d like to see the return of individualized medicine. One of the largest benefits of compounded medications is being able to prescribe a drug that may no longer exist, or one that is missing a few simple ingredients, like a dye color or binder, which may cause the patient to have an allergic reaction. Compounding pharmacies allow us to create specified formulations that offer an important additional therapy, or alternative for many chronic pain and inflammation sufferers. At Aadvanced Foot Care Associates, we think “outside the box” and as such, employ compounding as part of our treatment regimen to relieve your pain and get you back on your feet fast.
Aadvanced Foot Care focuses on achieving three critical success factors for successful patient outcomes:
- We ensure that each individual patient receives a prescription uniquely developed for them.
- We ensure that we deliver the prescription to our patients and properly educate them on the application.
- We ensure the patient is taken care of to the highest standards.
Some of the foot problems we treat with pharmacy compounding are:
