Too often, people only make a trip to their doctor’s office when they’re sick. Or even worse, they rely only on urgent care when an issue arises and don’t even have a regular doctor or primary care provider. There is a lot of discussion about primary care being a lost part of our current healthcare system. Why is that? It seems that in large part, health insurance plans don’t want to pay for preventive healthcare measures, and are instead only (barely) willing to pay for addressing issues as they arise. With a growing number of our population facing chronic health concerns and weight problems, the lack of focus on Wellness Care is a serious problem. At Soal Wellness, we want you to understand the importance of “Wellness Care” and commit to regularly seeing a doctor even if you’re healthy!
What is Wellness Care, and Why Does it Matter?
To us, Wellness Care is essentially the same as primary care, and it’s essential to your overall health. At Soal Wellness, we focus on your overall wellness, rather than just offering up a band-aid to ailments like so many primary care providers do.
We get it – going to a doctor’s office regularly may seem like a chore, but it is one of the most important steps you can take to maintain your health. Seeing a doctor regularly ensures that you get the preventive care and screenings that you need to stay healthy and catch any problems early on, and helps to ensure you have a relationship formed in the event you do get sick or have a medical need.
So, how often should you see a doctor for Wellness Care? Even if you are considered healthy, you should see a doctor at least once every 1-2 years. This is true for healthy people in their twenties but becomes even more imperative for those in their thirties because much of the routine screening begins in our thirties and it’s also a time where we begin to see the early onset of health concerns. And it is certainly much easier to address health concerns early on versus waiting until problems are well established. For example, if you go in for a checkup and a doctor detects high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol levels during the physical exam, they can recommend lifestyle changes that may help reduce these numbers. Or, if something more serious is detected such as cancer or heart disease, a doctor can refer you to specialists who can provide treatment options that may save your life.
