How do men benefit from an appointment at South Coast Medical Group?

At South Coast Medical Group regular screenings for your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels are vital to maintaining good health. By monitoring changes in your health you can get the necessary care to ward off major health crises, such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer. The practice addresses men’s immediate, non life-threatening injuries and illnesses in the urgent care facility, too.

How can South Coast Medical Group help me lose weight?

Being overweight puts you at risk for developing chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. It also puts you at risk for obstructive sleep apnea, which is characterized by snoring and interruptions in your breathing that wake you up at night, negatively affecting your daily activity and quality of life.

The skilled staff at South Coast Medical Group helps you lose weight healthfully with nutrition counseling, body composition testing, and high-quality nutritional supplements.

What can the doctors at South Coast Medical Group do to help boost men’s energy levels?

Sagging energy levels, accompanied by unexplained weight gain, insomnia, moodiness, and muscle loss, may be a result of reduced testosterone levels. Testosterone is a hormone that regulates a man’s muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, fat distribution, and sex drive.

Testosterone levels drop naturally as you age. The doctors at South Coast Medical offer testosterone therapy to restore your levels, and thus boost your energy and improve your overall well-being.

The doctors also may consider obstructive sleep apnea and chronic snoring as contributors to declining energy. They offer lifestyle changes and possibly a CPAP — a continuous positive airway pressure appliance that blows air into the back of the throat so it can’t collapse and interrupt breathing – so you sleep better to restore energy naturally.

Sports injuries can be acute, such as a sprained ankle, or chronic, such as tendinitis of your elbow. All types of sports injuries are handled with keeping the athlete or weekend warrior in mind for a rapid recovery. Make an appointment if you need a sports physical for school or team play. South Coast also treats chronic pain with braces, joint injections, and custom orthotics.

If you have an injury that needs immediate attention or X-rays, come in to the urgent care facility at South Coast Medical Group. You don’t need an appointment and won’t experience the wait times usually associated with hospital emergency rooms.
