Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can come in many different administrations including oral, topical and pellet.

Also, it’s a far more convenient treatment.

It’s the simplest application!
Restore Balance to Your Life
Our goal at Hillcrest Physical Medicine is to help our patients be the healthiest they can be. For many patients, this may mean rehabilitating injuries or easing back pain. For men suffering from embarrassing hormonal imbalances, we can diagnose and treat their condition. Our medical staff is fully capable of administering hormone replacement therapy to our Clarksville clients.
Among other things, hormones regulate your mood, bone density, and fitness, including your weight and muscle-to-fat ratio. Hormone imbalances can be embarrassing for men, as the body can produce less testosterone than needed and too much estrogen. Hormones are immensely important to your body and mind. A properly balanced hormonal system can lead to a fuller and more confident life.
Balancing Hormone Treatment
Each patient-facing hormone imbalance will go through the process at a different rate, and the symptoms will be unique to each individual. While full optimization of the pellets can take up to six months, while some patients have reported that optimization from treatments can start at two to four weeks. The professionals at Hillcrest Physical Medicine will customize your treatments to your hormone loss and will ensure patients get balance within their body.
How Do I Know If I Have a Hormone Imbalance?
Hormone imbalances have many causes and they can happen at any point in a man’s life. Stress can trigger hormone imbalances, along with acute injuries, eating poorly, and exercising too infrequently. Because hormone imbalances affect the endocrine system, which contains a complex mixture of body chemicals, drops in testosterone can cause a host of general health issues.
- Decreased sex drive
- Brain fog
- Inability to maintain muscle mass
- Depression and anxiety
- Decreased beard and hair growth
We have the resources and skill set needed to treat you at Hillcrest Physical Medicine and Hillcrest Physical Medicine. Our in-house family practitioner, Dr. Robert Steves, MD, will listen to you, diagnose you, and explain your options in an articulate and compassionate manner.
Give Your Quality of Life a Boost
Hillcrest Physical Medicine’s primary goal is to treat our patients until they are at their healthiest. While we offer services for patients suffering from acute joint and back pain, we can diagnose and treat hormonal imbalances in women. Abnormal chemical imbalances can be disruptive to your physical and mental health.
Your body’s hormones are among the most important chemicals in your body. Hormones are produced by glands in your endocrine system. As they travel through your body, they help regulate your metabolism, appetite, sleep, reproductive cycles, sexual function, mood, and body temperature. Even the smallest disruptions in hormone levels can cause side effects that can lessen your quality of life.
