Step 1: Performance Panel Blood Tests

The first step to solving any problem is to thoroughly assess every aspect of the situation. Assessing the current state of your health is the first step of your treatment plan. At Back in Action Medical Center, we offer the performance panel blood tests, a state-of-the-art diagnostic test that measures vital aspects of your health, assessing function and efficiency to help us determine the root cause of the issue and the best course of treatment for you and your specific health needs.

Step 2: Physical Exam and Consultation

Even the most advanced testing isn’t worth much without expert review by a specialty-trained physician. Lab testing is an essential first step, but your symptoms, medical history and changes to your quality of life play a significant role in finding a solution that not only restores your health, but matches your lifestyle and wellness goals. That’s why step 2 of your treatment plan at Back in Action Medical Center is an exam and consultation with Dr. Edward Pearson, who is board certified in hormone replacement.

Upon completion of your consolation, you will receive an assessment which shows you the specific biomarkers that have been identified as a concern and will be a central focus in developing your tailored treatment plan. Your assessment is as unique as you are, meaning your path to optimal wellness as Back in Action Medical Center is designed just for you.

Step 3: Your HRT Program

It is inevitable- your hormones will fluctuate as you age.  For both men and women hormonal fluctuations are a natural part of the lifespan, however in the later stages of life, hormonal imbalances can impair the function of your body, leading to uncomfortable symptoms and potentially disease.

Step 3 of your treatment plan at Back in Action Medical Center is hormone restoration. Hormonal balance s often achieved through hormone replacement therapy (HRT), testosterone replacement therapy (TPR), balanced nutrition and lifestyle changes, such as stress management, detox programs, sleep regimens and routine exercise.

What Are The Pellets Made Of?

Bio-identical pellets are derived from soy, a natural plant material.  Unlike synthetic hormones, the estradiol or testosterone hormones contained in the pellets are MOLECULARLY IDENTICAL in structure and in function to what is produced by the human body.  It only makes sense to give your body something that it recognizes.

How Are They Inserted?

Through a very small incision in the upper hip area (after local anesthesia), then the pellets are placed via an insertion device called a trochars. The incision site is closed with a small steri-strip and a special dressing.

What Happens After They Are Interested?

Over the next 4-6 months, the pellets will completely dissolve under the skin, at which time, new pellets will be inserted.  Your lab work will be ordered and reviewed, of course, prior to the placement of new pellets to see where your levels.

When Should You Get Your Blood Tested?

For FEMALES, if you are no longer having periods, then you can have your hormones checked at any time.  If you are still having menstrual cycles, then it is best to have your hormones checked between the 19th and 21st day of your cycle (day 1 is the start of your cycle).

For MEN, it is best to have your testosterone checked in the morning.

How Often Are Hormone Levels Checked?

For first time hormone pellet patients, your blood will be checked 3 times. Once just prior to the pellet insertion (to aid in the proper dosing of your hormones), then 1 month after the insertion (to determine whether the proper hormone levels are being achieved), and then 3 months after insertion (to determine when your next insertion date is going to be).  Once the hormone dosing has been established for a particular patient, repeat pellet insertions will only require hormone levels prior to their repeat insertions (every 4-6 months).
