What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is the branch of medicine dedicated to the study, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. Podiatrists are trained to handle a variety of conditions that can affect these parts of the body, ranging from common ailments such as calluses and ingrown toenails, to more complex issues like fractures, infections, and conditions related to diabetes and vascular disease.

Why do you need a Compounding Pharmacy for Podiatry?

Compounding pharmacies like VPharmacy play an essential role in podiatry by providing customized pharmaceutical solutions that meet the specific needs of patients with foot and lower extremity issues. We work with podiatrists to assist with custom compounding solutions to treat the following problems:

DIABETIC FOOT CARE

Managing foot health in diabetic patients to prevent and treat wounds and serious complications that can lead to amputation.

SPORTS INJURIES

Treating sprains, fractures, and other injuries commonly found in athletes and those involved in physical activities.

CUSTOMIZED TOPICAL FORMULATIONS

Compounded topical medications allow for targeted therapy directly at the site of pain or infection. This is particularly useful for conditions like athlete’s foot, plantar fasciitis, or neuropathic pain. Topical applications can reduce systemic side effects compared to oral medications.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Compounding pharmacies can create unique combinations of pain-relieving medications in forms that are easier to apply and may be more effective due to their direct application. These can include creams, gels, or sprays that combine analgesics, anti-inflammatories, and anesthetics.

WOUND CARE

COSMETIC PREPARATIONS

Compounding pharmacies can also help with cosmetic issues related to the feet, such as nail fungus and skin discoloration, by creating specialized topical treatments that can improve appearance as well as treat underlying issues.

In podiatry, compounding pharmacies like VPharmacy are invaluable for providing tailored treatments that address the specific needs of patients.

This collaboration ensures that patients receive the most appropriate and effective treatments to help them achieve the best possible outcomes for their foo​
