Why are regular men’s health exams important?
Regular doctor’s appointments play a vital role in preventing disease, diagnosing health conditions before they become serious, and helping you achieve optimal health and wellness.
During your appointment, a physician will review your personal and family medical history to assess your risks for health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. They may also capture your vitals like heart rate, blood pressure, and weight.
Our team personalizes your men’s health exam to your specific needs based on your age, health, and medical history. Essential men’s health screenings include:
- Colon cancer testing starting at age 50
- Prostate cancer testing beginning for most men at age 50
- Testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STD) when you’re sexually active
The team at Posture Perfect Wellness center can also help you address issues associated with low testosterone in addition to helping you reach your weight-loss goals or recover from disease or injury.
What are the symptoms of low testosterone?
As you age, your body produces less testosterone. When your testosterone declines, you can experience several side effects, including:
- Reduced libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Less energy or fatigue
- Weight gain or increased body fat
- Decreased muscle strength and mass
- Mood changes like depression and irritability
Decreased testosterone can also cause bone loss and low iron. If you have unnaturally low levels of testosterone, you have hypogonadism or “low T,” one of our physicians may recommend hormone therapy to restore your vitality.
Why is weight loss important?
In the United States, more than one in three adults and one in six children are obese. Obesity and sedentary lifestyles are a leading cause of chronic health conditions like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, fatigue, and chronic pain.
Our team is committed to helping you reduce your risk of preventable diseases by helping you reach your weight-loss goals.
What is physical therapy?
When you’re experiencing chronic fatigue or recovering from a sports injury, illness, or surgery, a personalized men’s health physical therapy plan can restore your health and function.
Under the care of our experienced team, you can expect your overall health to improve as you restore and increase your range of motion, improve your strength and general physical fitness, and reduce your need for pain relievers and medication.
