Why One Size Does Not Fit All

Today, I would like to talk about an interesting article I read on AskMen the other day. In “How Body Type Affects Fitness,” American record-holding Paralympic swimmer and personal trainer, Travis Pollen explains how our body type affects the way we exercise.  

All of us have a number of individual physical characteristics that affect our athletic performance. People with different height, weight or limb length will excel or do poorly at different kinds of exercises. Moreover, such factors as our bone structure, muscle insertion point or type of dominant muscle fiber vary greatly between individuals and play important roles in the way we should approach our training. 

Reading this informative piece, I could not help thinking how well this personalized approach to getting fit ties in with what we do every day at NuMale Medical Center. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the industry of men’s sexual health in general.  

Millions of men around the world are suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED), which is often caused by low testosterone levels (low T) associated with aging. Although modern medicine is perfectly capable of effectively treating these conditions, many doctors today choose the one-size-fits-all approach to treating ED and prescribe Viagra or other oral ED medications instead of addressing the root of the problem. 

At NuMale Medical Center, we understand that each patient has a unique set of personal characteristics that determine the way he should be treated. Our highly experienced doctors perform a number of pre-treatment medical examinations, including laboratory tests and ultrasound imaging in order to tailor the best possible erectile dysfunction treatment designed specifically for each patient’s body.  

So, whether it’s physical training or ED treatment, it is important to consider the unique features of your body in order to achieve the best possible results.
