Preventive Medical Care
We at Sobel Family Medicine Physical Therapy & Chiropractic Care believe that prevention is your most powerful option, and is the key to your lasting health, both physically and mentally.
It is easier to MAINTAIN good health than to RESTORE it. Therefore we recommend annual physicals to help prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
Preventative care includes annual physical examinations to find potential problems before they occur. Screening for cancer with Pap smears, breast examinations, and rectal and colon examinations, specific protection with immunizations against childhood diseases, influenza, pneumonia, hepatitis, etcetera, and dietary and lifestyle management to promote health and fitness.
Diagnostic procedures including ultrasounds of the abdomen to help diagnose early formation of aneurysms, Carotid Doppler’s to detect early plaque formation and prevent strokes, and echocardiograms to give in-depth analysis of the heart’s function.
