Age Management Q & A

What is age management?

Age management is a branch of health care focused on slowing down the natural aging process. Although there’s no way to stay young forever, age management can minimize uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause, andropause, and general wear-and-tear.

Age management focuses on all aspects of your health, including mobility, mental acuity, and physical fitness. When combined with healthy lifestyle choices like a balanced diet, regular exercise, and plenty of sleep, age management makes it possible to maintain your vitality.

What are some common age-related health problems?

The older you get, the more likely you are to experience age-related health problems. Some of the most common age-related conditions include:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer

Older people are also more susceptible to slip-and-fall injuries, vertigo, and diabetes.

Are there different types of age management?

At Interventional Pain and Regenerative Medicine Specialists, Dr. Huffman offers several age management services, including:

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine refers to a group of minimally invasive treatments that use stem cells, platelets, and other natural growth factors to encourage your body’s natural healing process. If you’re living with osteoarthritis or you experience a sports-related injury, regenerative medicine can help you avoid surgery and speed up your recovery.

IV therapy

Seniors are more likely than young people to experience vitamin deficiencies. IV therapy is a safe, in-office treatment that can address this common problem. During IV therapy, a mixture of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients enters your bloodstream. The mixture bypasses your digestive system entirely, allowing for greater uptake by your cells. 

Hormone therapy

As you age, your natural hormone levels decline. For women, this occurs due to menopause, and for men, it’s a result of andropause. Hormonal imbalances can trigger a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, low libido, and sleep disturbances. Hormone therapy addresses these and other issues using synthetic or natural hormones.

What type of age management is right for me?

The type of age management treatment that’s right for you depends on your health history, the symptoms you’re experiencing, and your treatment goals. Following a comprehensive physical and neurological exam, Dr. Huffman develops a custom age management treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs.
