Health Screenings Every Adult Needs

Health screenings are an essential part of prevention as well as early detection of disease. The earlier symptoms are detected, the higher the chance of making a full recovery. That is why all medical professionals, including Maryland Pain & Wellness, advocate for regular screenings. While it’s important to talk to your general practitioner, here are a few that we also recommend.

Why Are Health Screenings Important

Whether performing a self-exam at home or receiving regular health screenings, testing, or exams with your doctor, being proactive with your health allows you to live a healthier, longer life. By consulting with a health professional, you also have access to a medical provider who can take into consideration your age, health, risk factors, family history, and lifestyle choices (smoking, weight, alcohol) to decide the best options when it comes to your healthcare needs.
