If you are not someone that regularly visits their doctor, you may miss out on some helpful exams and tips that the doctor can provide.

Many healthy people, especially young people, skip going to the doctor for years because they feel fine.

Even if you are going to the chiropractor regularly, you may have some issues working against your efforts to be fully healthy. It is important to stay up-to-date on your regular exams. You could have an underlying health condition that you don’t know about. Early detection is key in making sure you will be okay. You want to live an enjoyable, long, and healthy life.

The following exams are recommended each year for a typical person:

  • Mental check-up including anxiety and depression
  • Bone health checks including osteoporosis
  • Eyesight checks
  • Immunizations against common diseases and viruses (example: flu shot)
  • Screenings for cancer (skin, breast, colon, prostate, cervical, and more)
  • Dental check-up
  • Glucose and Cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood nutrient levels such as Iron, B12, Magnesium, Potassium, and more

The list above does not include everything recommended for you. Check with your doctor to find out exactly what you would need. These exams become much more important as you get older.

You may have to see a few different doctors in order to get the whole list of recommended health screenings. For example, you may need to see a psychiatrist for mental health care, a bone doctor for bone checks, an eye doctor for eye checks, and a dentist for dental care. Choose the issue you feel is most important to you and your body first, and then check the rest if you can.

If you are 40 or older, it could be critical that you see a doctor and get these checked out.
