Age Management Medicine Q & A

What is the focus of age management medicine?

Age management medicine is a relatively new medical field that focuses on preventive care as you age. More specifically, age management medicine helps you learn to stay active, healthy, and satisfied with life as you experience the mental and physical changes that come with age. Undergoing age management treatments may also maximize longevity.

Rather than waiting until you get sick to seek treatment, age management medicine helps you minimize your chances of falling ill or getting injured in the first place. It emphasizes your current health rather than sickness or the potential for it. While many people associate aging with inevitable illness and ailments, age management medicine aims to shift this perception to be more positive.

What might my age management plan include?
