Federal law says that truckers have to pass a regular physical – Tritown Chiropractic can do your DOT medical exams for a reasonable price.
Tritown Chiropractic Offices are pleased to announce that they now offer medical examinations for CDL license holders. They are nationally certified to perform the appropriate medical exams.
Truckers are required to pass a physical examination before they get their CDL and then every two years. There are some waivers for drivers with physical impairment or hearing problems. The exam can be done by any medical professional licensed to perform the test – which tests vision, hearing, blood pressure, pulse rate, blood, sugar and protein in urine, heart murmurs, etc.
The advantage of having your DOT physical performed by a Foxboro MA chiropractor is that chiropractors have experience dealing with the conditions most often experienced by truckers as a result of their occupation. Truckers are prone to “truckers shoulder” – a repetitive strain injury in the shoulder from managing the wheel of a large vehicle. Many also experience neck and back pain from extended sitting, carpal tunnel from driving, or joint damage in the legs from jumping in and out of the cab. All of these respond well to chiropractic treatment – which means that when coming into a chiropractor’s office for a physical a driver can also talk to them about the aches and pains they might be experiencing as a result of their demanding profession. Some truckers also injure their back or joints when loading and unloading.
In other words, a qualified chiropractor who is certified to perform a DOT physical is also the best person to help truckers with their overall health. Truckers who are just starting out or renewing their license should consider Tritown Chiropractic Offices for their next required physical.
