Preventive Healthcare Q & A
What is preventive health care?
Preventive health care involves services that keep you healthy and help you avoid illnesses that are possible to prevent. While you can’t entirely prevent yourself from getting sick for the rest of your life, preventive care reduces your overall number of health risks. It can prevent or delay you from developing complications from the health conditions you already have.
The preventive health care services available at the Temecula Medical Group lower your risk for many chronic diseases, including:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Certain types of cancer
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Joint pain
- Back pain
The Temecula Medical Group’s preventive care services also help you manage your risks of various health complications, like heart attack and stroke.
Which services does preventive health care include?
There are plenty of health care services that can help you stay as healthy as possible and free from chronic pain and disability. The Temecula Medical Group team offers these preventive health care services in the office:
Annual exams are physical exams you get once a year to track your health. During an annual physical, the Temecula Medical Group team reviews your current health status and lifestyle before making recommendations to improve your health.
Medical weight loss
Managing your weight through nutritional changes and exercise reduces the amount of fat in your body. It lowers your risk of developing health conditions like cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and long-term joint pain.
Immunizations, also called vaccinations or vaccines, keep you from getting certain transmissible diseases. Immunizations are available for many bacterial and viral infections. They can help you avoid the illnesses themselves and the long-term complications that come with them.
What are the benefits of preventive health care?
Preventive health care doesn’t just lower your disease risks: Many benefits should be considered when exploring preventive services. By taking advantage of regular preventive care, you can:
- Develop a healthier diet
- Reduce chronic pain
- Maintain your mobility
- Extend your life expectancy
- Experience lower health care costs
- Become more active
- Make your health a priority
Regular preventive care visits also help you maintain a relationship with your primary care provider, who gets to know you better over time. Maintaining contact with your providers improves your health care outcomes as your providers become increasingly familiar with your health and wellness trends.
