Sports injuries are a common occurrence, and can be caused by a multitude of factors. Typically, they are classified as being either acute or chronic, and the pharmacist is in a strong position to provide advice on the best way to manage many of these injuries. Treatment approaches include both nonpharmacological and pharmacological. Topical medications are extremely useful in the management of minor sports injuries, as generally they are well tolerated, available over-the-counter and provide rapid relief.
