Back in the old days, you would only see the doctor if you were hurt, sick, or having a baby. The old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” is proof of that. But now, more Americans than ever are changing their relationship with medical care, and one of the biggest ways is the adoption of preventative care.
While it’s good to get expert treatment if you get sick, it’s far better to take steps to avoid getting sick in the first place. With preventative care through osteopathic medicine, your physician will make suggestions regarding exterior factors in your life, such as your diet, where you live and work, exercise, and other environmental factors. Plus, when your doctor focuses on osteopathic manipulative care — a medical field that specializes in the various systems within your body operating in harmony — they can utilize self-regulatory processes to ward off diseases and resist injuries more effectively.
With more than 15 years of experience, Healthstar Physicians Family Practice is available to treat you and your family if you’ve gotten sick or hurt. But we’re also here to help you stay healthier and happier in the first place. To schedule an osteopathic medicine appointment, contact us online or by phone today.
