Health Tips for Men in Their 40s & 50s

1. De-Stress.

For many men, career, financial, and family pressures can make the 40s and 50s a very stressful time. And stress is a known risk factor for heart disease. Keep in mind, too, that heart disease hits men at a younger age than it does women. In addition, heart disease is the No.1 killer of men age 45 to 54. Now’s the time to find ways to get that stress off your back, whether it’s regular exercise, yoga, meditation, or stress management classes.

2. Don’t skip the doctor.

Your wife or girlfriend has probably been to the doctor at least once a year since she was in her 20s, even if just for a Pap smear. It’s easy for guys to get out of the habit of routine care. But as you reach midlife, this is one habit you should start, not stop.

3. Deflate the spare tire.

Many men tend to gain weight around the middle as they hit midlife. Watch it closely. Studies have found that spare tires trump even general obesity as a predictor of heart disease and diabetes.

4. Don’t forget key screening tests.

All men 20 and older should get their cholesterol checked every five years. Talk to your doctor about diabetes screening starting at age 45 — or younger, if you’re overweight and physically inactive, or have a family member with diabetes. And don’t forget about high blood pressure. Ask your doctor how often you should be screened for it to protect yourself against stroke and heart disease. A colonoscopy is recommended at age 50 (earlier if you’re at high risk).

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our patients, employees and family are our top priority at Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C.

We ask you to not visit any of our locations if you have symptoms such as fever, sneezing, coughing and possible shortness of breath.

Please cancel your appointment and re-schedule once you are feeling better and are no longer suffering with symptoms.

Only non-symptomatic patients will be seen. No exceptions.

Accompanying family members – including children – are asked to remain in the waiting area and will not be allowed to enter the exam rooms.

During this time of high concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are taking extra precautions to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and cleanliness. Please be advised that we are carefully following recommendations from both the CDC and WHO and are here to help guide you through this time if needed.

Some steps we are taking to keeping safe:

  1. We know how important cleanliness is and always maintain the highest standards of cleanliness. To further offer you peace of mind, we have increased the frequency of the cleaning of our office.
  2. Rest assured that hand washing is strictly followed. Hand sanitizer is available to all staff and patients.
  3. Additionally, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the coronavirus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from your return date. We will gladly accommodate your needs to reschedule. At that time, a telehealth interface can be arranged if necessary.
