New to 2010 is Dr Oughtred’s annual health assessment: a comprehensive health assessment that includes a medical assessment, a physical therapy type of assessment, and a fitness and lifestyle assessment. Patients will receive a 15 page booklet outlining and explaining their results, and it comes complete with a comprehensive plan that includes dietary recommendations, supplement and medication recommendations, exercise programs and tips, stretching advice, or recommendations for physical therapies or other hands on techniques.
The center piece of your assessment is the summary page, which quickly displays and colour codes your results alongside your recommended goals for the following year. This page gives you a comprehensive, yet simple ‘snapshot’ of your current state of health and fitness, and can act as a great motivator for the future.
For those of you who have extended medical insurance, your coverage will likely cover you for all, if not part of the assessment.
- Review and assessment of your current and past health concerns
- Relevant physical examination
- Orthopedic Assessment (Joint Alignment, Range of Motion, Posture, Strength, Stability)
- Fitness Assessment (Everything from grip strength and body fat to cardiorespiratory fitness and lactate threshold testing)
- Nutritional and Lifestyle Assessment
- Disease Risk Assessment (Framingham score, diet, biometrics, other)
- When indicated, referral to other health professionals, physicians or laboratories.
Your assessment acts like an annual membership, and you will be reminded when you are due for follow ups and important preventive medical screening tests and visits.
For fitness enthusiasts, the process involves measurement of lactate thresholds for precise assessment of endurance over time and selection of future training intensities. For those who want to manage their disease risk over time, the assessment gives you a framingham score, estimating your 10 year risk for developing coronary artery disease. This is the perfect annual health screen for someone who is looking for an executive health assessment with a strong focus on fitness, lifestyle, and athletic performance. Together with the advice and medical testing of your family doctor, your assessment will leave you feeling as though no ‘stone is left unturned’ with regard to your health.
Aside from your assessments with your medical doctor, all parts of your annual assessment are performed by Dr Oughtred himself which provides for a 5-star professional experience which you won’t forget. Take the time for your assessment now, and see what new avenues of health open up for you.
