Importance of Preventive Care

Preventive care can seem like an extra hurdle, but oftentimes it can reduce the number of sick visits you pay your doctor.

In essence, preventive care refers to the recommended routine visits that many adults tend to neglect.

Regular preventive care visits can help your doctor detect potential problems early on before they can cause other complications and become more difficult to treat. These visits are especially important if you already suffer from a chronic condition like diabetes or heart disease, which requires regular checkups to keep you in good health.

Well-Child Visits

Children are constantly growing and changing, so preventive care for them takes the form of well-child visits, which can help track their development as well as prevent health complications and disease. An important part of these visits are immunizations, which are given to children throughout their lives to maximize the protection these offer.

Developmental screenings can also help spot any potential learning difficulties early on and offer them treatment to improve their quality of life.

Screenings and Advice for Adults

For adults, preventive health screenings for a variety of conditions are usually recommended at certain ages, but these can vary depending on your risk. Immunizations are still important for adults, though the focus is typically on seasonal vaccines.

Regular preventive with your doctor also presents a great opportunity to seek advice and assistance regarding important lifestyle changes that can improve your overall health.
