What is Male Hormone Therapy?

Did you know as men age they lose 1% of their testosterone every year? Energy drops, libido drops, fat mass increases. Learn more about the secret behind the magic bullet for male health.

Learn all about natural, bioidentical hormones including the single biggest factor in male aging - loss of testosterone - and how it can be reversed to make you stronger, leaner and more virile. In addition proper balancing of your hormones will make you less susceptible to heart disease, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and a host of other illnesses.

Our Critical Hormones for Men

  • Testosterone, Estrogen, Growth Hormone (HGH), DHEA, Thyroid, HCG, Pregnenlone

Common Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Any one of these symptoms could be a sign of Low T. The sooner you get it checked, the sooner you’ll start feeling better, stronger and more like yourself again.

  • Declining Libido
  • Irritability
  • Muscle/Joint Pain
  • Weight Gain
  • Lack of Energy
  • Weak Erections
  • Poor Sleep
  • Decreasing Enjoyment of Life and/or Depression
  • Decreasing Strength and Endurance
  • Declining ability to concentrate

Effects of Low Testosterone

Andropause, the male equivalent to female menopause, is real although more subtle than menopause. It is the process of male aging that starts at around 30 years of age and continues until the end of our life. It is marked by the gradual slowing down of hormone production in the male body, most noteably that of testosterone,...and therefore a slowing down of all functional capabilities.

While estrogen levels in women decline after menopause, just the opposite occurs in men. Along with declining testosterone production, men actually experience rising estrogen levels. This is evidenced by increased abdominal fat and shrinking of muscle mass...both a hallmark of male hormonal imbalance.

The loss of testosterone along with declining Human Growth Hormone (HGH) contributes to the familiar "pot belly" and declining muscle tone in middle-age men. Energy levels inevitably drop, as do sexual desire and function. Cardiac output declines, lung capacity decreases and other organ functions diminish. Loss of the feeling of well-being sometimes manifests as depression and lack of motivation, which is a common psychological complication of hormonal imbalance. Other diseases that middle-age men begin experiencing can be attributed to decreasing hormone levels and include: weight gain, prostate disease, heart disease, blood vessel disease, elevated cholesterol, loss of mental clarity/focus.

The steady decline in male hormone levels manifests itself as deterioration in physical, sexual and cognitive function. We see this in our waning interest in sex, difficulty in having and maintaining an erection, decreased sexual satisfaction, as well as fatigue, irritability and muscle/joint pains.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
