“Men take better care of their cars than they do themselves…”
If you’re a man, you probably have heard this saying before, but if you’ve been neglecting your health and putting more energy toward fixing your car than getting your health in check, no is the time to do it!
June is Men’s Health Month, celebrated annually to ensure men are taking care of themselves mentally and physically. Here are a few tips on how you can take charge of your health!
Have a Regular Wellness Exam
As you age, regular wellness physicals are critical to determine underlying medical conditions that can be treated with early detection. At Instant Urgent Care, we provide general wellness exams and a number of other physicals such as DOT, pre-employment, and sports to ensure that you’re in good health and can handle any given task or participate in an activity.
Along with having a regular wellness exam performed, you should also stay up to date with your vaccinations, as they are a part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent life-altering diseases. At Instant Urgent Care, we offer vaccinations for influenza, measles, hepatitis A and B, whooping cough, and more on a walk-in basis, which means you’ll never have to book an appointment to be seen by a physician.
Diet and exercise
Including a proper diet and exercise regime into your lifestyle can refine your overall health and reduce your chances of being diagnosed with chronic health conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more. Invest in your body by becoming more mindful while grocery shopping and dining out, as well as consider signing up for a membership at your local gym or participate in exercise classes.
Listen to your body
You may avoid seeking medical attention out of pride, but if you’re not feeling like your normal self, you may want to reconsider. At Instant Urgent Care, our staff of well-seasoned medical professionals have experience with treating a range of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses to get you on the road to a speedy recovery. When you can’t book an appointment with an out-of-reach primary care physician, or you don’t want to be hit with an expensive ER bill, visit our urgent care center.
Men, keep your health in check and visit Instant Urgent Care for preventative services any day during the week. For more information about the services we provide, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at 408-687-4806.
