Preventive Care

Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas offers both holistic and medical healthcare services to maintain your overall health and prevent future problems and conditions from developing. We believe the adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s why we provide preventive care services like examinations, bloodwork, weight control, and healthy lifestyle counseling.

Some conditions, like diabetes and high blood pressure, can cause serious complications. It is better to prevent them from developing than to take the risk of dealing with those complications later. For example, the longer diabetes goes unmanaged, the higher your chances of developing painful nerve damage known as neuropathy. For the sake of your health, our team will help you reduce your risk for diabetes and other preventable diseases.

Preventive Care and Physical Exams

Dr. Adams helps you take an active role in disease prevention. He is a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine and a licensed family nurse practitioner. This gives him the authority to perform physical exams, order lab work and imaging, develop treatment plans, and write prescriptions. As with all care providers, physical exams are his first step toward understanding your individual medical needs.

Physical examinations help your care provider gauge the general status of your health. These exams also give you a chance to tell your provider about ongoing or worsening symptoms. Having this face-to-face time is also important for developing a trusting relationship that allows you to feel comfortable bringing up any concerns you have.

Physical exams are a cornerstone of effective preventive care because they:

  • Allow for the early detection and treatment of disease
  • Identify potentially harmful medical issues
  • Ensure that vaccinations are up to date
  • Measure your weight and blood pressure
  • Measure your blood glucose and cholesterol levels
  • Give you time to discuss the cessation of bad habits, like smoking
  • Allow the provider to give you feedback about your diet and exercise routine

Preventive care services also include regular check-ups, vaccinations, one-on-one counseling on important topics like diet and lifestyle, and routine screenings for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some cancers. Dr. Adams develops specific regimens for you to take home and apply to your lifestyle to maximize your health potential.

Every person should have an annual physical exam, no matter their age. The importance of an annual exam peaks after age 50. That is when many preventable diseases start to show up. Dr. Adams understands the changing health concerns that occur as you age, so he always recommends the appropriate bloodwork and screenings. If you are genetically predisposed to certain diseases, be sure to ask him about screenings earlier in life.

Dr. Adams: Family Nurse Practitioner

Family nurse practitioners are trained to provide preventive medical care, and they also provide medical treatment for people of all ages. As a family nurse practitioner, Dr. Adams deals with the biological aspects of sickness and disease. He can prescribe medications to help you manage or prevent diseases. Because of his unique qualification as both a nurse practitioner and a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, he can also suggest and perform physiotherapy treatments to complement the medical care.

Progressive Integrated Healthcare has found that a truly integrated medical and holistic strategy is the most effective. If a patient is suffering from osteoarthritis, Dr. Adams is licensed to go beyond simply prescribing a pain pill. He also treats the root cause, be it an old injury or other musculoskeletal issue, through chiropractic care, physical therapy, heat and massage therapies, and more. This multi-pronged approach produces superior results that are seldom obtained through completely pharmaceutical or completely holistic treatments.
