Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is an area of medical practice that focuses on creating a home from which all health services are received. It is often the point of entry into your local health care system, as well as the base from which numerous health services are delivered. 

There are multiple services available under the umbrella of primary care. Areas of focus include disease prevention, health promotion, prompt care for acute illnesses and injuries, management of chronic disease, health counseling, and maintaining optimal health and wellness. 

What kinds of services are available under primary care?

Perhaps the most important benefit of working closely with a primary care practitioner is access to comprehensive physical exams. Coming in for routine physicals is a great way to get the screenings you need to catch problems in the earliest stages, optimize your performance and quality of life, and thrive. 

Some of the services available at Got Your Back Total Health include:

  • Evaluation and treatment for cold and flu symptoms
  • Men’s health exams
  • Pediatric care
  • Treatment for sleep disorders
  • Preoperative consultations
  • Weight loss consultations and support
  • Well woman exams
  • Auto accident injury evaluation
  • Wellness exams
  • Sports physicals

These are just some of the services you can expect to receive under the umbrella of primary care. If you have questions about specific services, feel free to reach out to the office for more information. 

What if I need to see a specialist?

The nurse practitioner and other team members at Got Your Back Total Health offer a wide range of integrative, chiropractic, physical therapy and regenerative therapyservices. The practice is shaped around the belief that by correcting problems in the alignment of your spine and other structures, as well as restoring patterns in the nervous system, , all aspects of your health and wellness will have the best chance to improve. 

Many patients turn to the practice after trying several “traditional” treatment paths without significant success. They often find that a more integrative, holistic approach can yield marked improvements.  

That said, there are certainly circumstances where specialized care is the right course of action. If that need arises, your practitioner can help you find a specialist who can meet your need. Your health team remains in communication with your extended care team throughout your treatment, coordinating your care upon your return.
