Men's Health Month - Addressing Health Concerns and Unintentional Injuries

As men, it's important to acknowledge that our health changes significantly as we age. Whether it's the weight gained during the COVID-19 pandemic or the increased fatigue, aches, and general discomfort, these signs emphasize the need for proactive health measures. Aging increases our vulnerability to injuries and health issues, but many of these can be prevented with proper care and attentiveness. In recognition of Men's Health Month this June, AFC Urgent Care  Rocky Hill is here to support you!

AFC Urgent Care Rocky Hill has created a guide to help you learn more about men’s health. There’s a lot to learn during men’s health month!

We provide comprehensive checkups focused on preventive care to address your health concerns.

Common Health Issues for Men

Did you know that cardiovascular disease, including heart disease, is the leading health concern for men? Uncontrolled blood pressure and high cholesterol are major contributors to heart disease, affecting millions of men in the United States annually. Alarming statistics show that heart disease often leads to heart attacks and strokes. Another critical issue is diabetes, often called a "silent" killer because it can develop early without obvious symptoms. Diabetes increases the risk of other serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, and vision problems. Prevention is essential: regular monitoring of blood pressure, blood glucose (A1C), and cholesterol levels, along with exercise, healthy eating, and routine check-ups, are key in combating these health issues.

Ensuring Workplace Safety for Men

Statistics indicate that men are more likely to experience workplace injuries compared to women. Each year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports numerous fatal and nonfatal injuries and illnesses among male workers. While the reasons for this disparity are debated, the importance of safety precautions is undeniable. During Workplace Health and Safety Month in June, we encourage men to take extra precautions and wear appropriate safety gear to prevent accidents. If an injury occurs, AFC Rocky Hill provides worker compensation and occupational health services to support recovery and ensure a quick return to work.
