The Importance of Preventive Care

How you care for your health right now can dictate your health for the future.

You wouldn’t just wait until a cavity develops to see your dentist, so why would you wait until you’re dealing with heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure to finally do something about it? The good news is that through preventive checkups with our Trophy Club, TX, providers Dr. David Yi, Dr. Paula Lansford-Seabaugh, and PA Carol Addy. We can detect early signs of disease so we can provide you with simple lifestyle modifications that can reverse some of these issues.

Improves Long-Term Health

The whole purpose of preventive care is for your Trophy Club, TX, providers to catch problems early on before they become serious. Like we mentioned above, high blood pressure is a common problem we see, and unfortunately, it doesn’t cause symptoms. This means someone could be walking around with hypertension and not know it.

If you come in at least once a year for a wellness check we can monitor your blood pressure. If it’s elevated or high, we can preemptively recommend simple lifestyle changes to lower your blood pressure, so you don’t have to turn immediately to lifelong medication.

Could Increase Longevity

Everyone should get preventive care from our medical team every year. Those with preexisting health conditions should talk with us about how often to come in for wellness checks. While preventive care is important for everyone, getting these routine checkups is particularly important for those 30-49 years old and it could significantly improve life expectancy.

Saves You Money

What seems more expensive to you, going to the doctor once a year for a preventive checkup or having to go to the hospital for an emergency problem, or having to come in for regular treatments and monitoring of preexisting health problems? Preventive care catches problems early on when they are certainly easier to treat and may even be reversed. Plus, your health insurance should cover these preventive checkups.
