REDDING, Calif., Aug. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Performing well on a DOT exam allows individuals to continue the process to receive a CDL license, reports Churn Creek Chiropractic. Redding clinic patients can schedule an appointment quickly and get DOT exams providing documentation that patients are of sufficient health to perform necessary responsibilities when behind the wheel. Dr. Donovan Hutchings, D.C., uses a holistic approach in patient health focusing on the needs of each individual patient. Chiropractic and supporting services are available in addition to DOT exams to provide effective, non-invasive techniques to keep CDL drivers performing optimally and reduce unnecessary absenteeism.
A DOT exam is similar to a traditional exam. Patients that call Churn Creek Chiropractic for a DOT exam often receive appointments earlier than they would if they were waiting to see a family physician. Once a patient is with the chiropractor, they will undergo a vision test, hearing exam and blood pressure testing as part of the DOT exam. Results will be made available to patients on the same day as their appointment, regardless of the outcome.
In addition to the initial DOT exam, alternative practices such as chiropractic care can help drivers address discomfort and physical concerns as a result of long-haul driving combined with individual medical history. Chiropractic care has been used to effectively realign the spinal column and rebalance the supporting structures within the body. Drivers that take charge of their health can use chiropractic care, along with exercise and diet, to manage high blood pressure and blood sugar levels, maintain a healthy weight and eye health, and improve sleep-related medical conditions, including sleep apnea. Beyond the DOT exam, regular exams, self-care and chiropractic treatments can help reduce the potential for chronic conditions that can result in work absenteeism and decreased quality of life.
“DOT exams are an important first step for those seeking their CDL license,” said Dr. Hutchings. “DOT exams provide the necessary information about an applicant’s general health to get them on the path to a career with the Department of Transportation. However, continued health care and attention to chronic and acute conditions help drivers address concerns that can interfere with workplace performance. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive method used to address pain naturally and rebalance the body. Get the job you want and continue in the profession when you address changes to your health and follow-through on homecare recommendations.”
