Over time, your hormone levels may become imbalanced because of factors like an unhealthy lifestyle, aging, diseases, and others. This imbalance may lead to various problems such as affecting your metabolism and immunity, skin problems, irregular menstruations in women, or chronic pain.
Hormone therapy addresses hormonal imbalances in the body, thereby improving your quality of life. Dr. Manohar administers hormone therapy in different forms – gels, pills, injections, and implantable pellets.
Who Should Opt for Hormone Therapy?
There is a general misconception that Hormone Replacement Therapy is beneficial only with aging. That's not quite the case, though.
Patients who experience hormone imbalance are also candidates for Hormone Therapy. This can happen to anyone irrespective of their age. An expert doctor can help analyze each patient's unique requirements and provide treatments that aid the body to combat the imbalance. The benefits attained by older adults and Long-term Opioid Users from hormonal therapy are provided below.
For older adults, hormone therapy can replenish and rebalance hormone levels and help fight against conditions like stiffness in the body, joint pain, inflammation, and others.
Long-Term Opioid Users
The extended use of opioids affects your hormone levels to a great extent and can have far-reaching negative results on your quality of life. Hormone therapy can help you manage pain and improve your quality of life. We also offer a wide range of non-surgical non-opioid pain management options that are highly effective.
How Does Hormone Therapy Help with Pain Management?
Your hormones play an important role in managing pain when you experience it. For instance, your body uses the hormones produced by the adrenal glands to reduce inflammation and aid in the healing of injured tissues. When the body fails to produce hormones in the right amount, your sensitivity to pain starts to increase. Hormonal imbalances also contribute to hyperalgesia, a condition that causes your body to become very sensitive to pain.
Before administering the treatment, Dr. Manohar will test your hormone levels to identify any hormone deficiencies. He will then tailor a suitable treatment so that your body’s hormone levels can be rebalanced and you can be free of pain and discomfort.
