Podiatry is Devoted to the Study, Diagnosis and Treatment of Disorders of the Foot, Ankle and Lower Leg.
90% of adults with arthritis and 25% of those with diabetes commonly suffer from foot problems. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, poor circulation and neuropathy-caused insensitivity or numbness.
Many Foot Problems May Be Helped with Compounded Medications
We commonly prepare unique formulations that we develop with prescribers to meet the specific needs of their patients, or “tried and true” formulas we’ve acquired during our professional training and experience. We can add penetrant enhancers to improve the extent of absorption of topically applied medications. We can combine numerous compatible medications into a single dosage form for ease of administration. And we can achieve a synergistic effect when we use certain medications concomitantly.
