Don’t Forget Your Check-Up For The New Year
A new year usually means check-ups. Annual check-ups on your car, your pets and yourself. If you are part of the MissionFiT family of athletes, then you should know the importance of getting a physical every year.
It’s Still Early in the Year…I’ll Get My Check-Up Soon
Sometimes, procrastination is a good thing. Sort of like waiting until that sleek pair of shoes goes on sale at your favorite retailer. However, doctor appointments are not one of those things you should put off for another day. How many times have you heard someone say “I’m glad I got checked when I did. The doctor determined we caught the cancer early.”?
But….I Don’t Get Sick. Why Should I Get A Check-Up?
We at MissionFiT are grateful you are in such good health. However, there are times when the “Minute Clinic” at the local drug store won’t be able to help your condition. If you fall in that category, then you need to seek the resources available to a well-rounded medical practice. In addition, most insurance plans cover annual preventative visits. So your office visit may not cost you anything.
But I Don’t Have A Regular Doctor
That’s why MissionFiT is here to assist you. So look over the list of recommended local physicians for both family practice and pediatrics. Visit the websites for more information on each practice.

“Our approach to wellness is to focus on the cause of the symptoms you experience. Most doctors are not trained to get to the cause of your pain issues or sub-par metabolic performance. Our team focuses on the foundation of health, on which all other elements of your body are dependent. We focus on the following 5 areas of wellness:
- Metabolic performance
- Quality Nutrients
- Chiropractic Care and Nerve System Performance
- Mindfulness and Stress Management
- Minimizing and Removing Toxins”
