What Does Specialized Treatment for Men's Health Involve?

The differences between men and women are fodder for many jokes, but the reality is that the two genders benefit from specialized care that caters to the unique needs of each sex. 

At No Mercy Sports Medicine, our team, led by Dr. Moisés Irizarry-Román, offers specialized men’s health care, giving our male patients the resources and expert care they need for optimal health and wellness. Here, we explore some of the more pressing men’s health care concerns and how we go about addressing them.

Hormonal deficiencies

The human body is regulated by tiny messengers called hormones, which control everything from metabolism to sexual characteristics. The hormone largely responsible for the latter — sexual characteristics — is testosterone in men. 

The role that testosterone plays in a man’s health goes far beyond the reproductive system. It influences, among other things, men’s:

Through our men’s health services, we routinely check your testosterone levels to ensure that they’re in a healthy range. Many patients come in with a variety of complaints that often boil down to “just not feeling themselves,” and we routinely find that low testosterone levels play a role.

To check your testosterone levels, we perform a simple blood test. If we find that your levels are low, we offer testosterone replacement therapy. If your testosterone levels are within a normal range, rest assured that we dig deeper to find the root cause of your complaints.

Going the distance

As sports medicine specialists, we combine our men’s health services with our sports medicine services to help men achieve optimal performance. If being active is important to you, we partner with you to ensure that you’re giving your body the resources it needs to go the distance. 

To start, we perform an extensive analysis to determine whether you have any vitamin or nutrient deficiencies. From there, we tailor a program to your unique needs that includes:

We also spend considerable time reviewing your performance so we can find ways to both improve it and protect you from a side-lining injury. Should you injure yourself, our goal is to help you heal quickly and in a way that best prevents re-injury. 

One of the tools we rely on with injuries is regenerative medicine, namely platelet-rich plasma therapy and stem cell therapy. These two treatments help you to heal from within, on a cellular level, for sustainable results that can help get you back in the game sooner.
