Preventative screenings: An Inspection of Your Health, Not Just Your Car

You bring your car for a yearly inspection, right? There’s peace of mind knowing that your exhaust isn’t poisoning you and your tires can still grip the road. But what about your body? Most people don’t go for a yearly checkup, and those that do aren’t getting the most thorough checkup. Why not treat your body like you treat your car and make sure there’s nothing wrong before you have a serious issue? Life Line Screening is like an inspection for your body, except they’re probably not going to check you checked for rust.

Your car has an onboard diagnostic system. Wouldn’t it be great if your body did too? That’s why Life Line Screening uses three different modalities to perform preventative screenings: Ultrasounds, Blood Tests, and an EKG. Each of these modalities can help diagnose various issues.

Ultrasounds are perfect for checking for structural problems, like when your car is up on the lift, and they’re checking the frame for rot. An ultrasound can detect issues with your circulatory system by monitoring the flow of blood throughout your body. Any blockages or ruptures can be diagnosed, and areas of concern can be addressed before they become full blown aneurysms.

Blood Tests are crucial for detecting early signs of cancer or heart disease. A simple finger prick test can help to diagnose major issues, much like how dark and cloudy brake fluid can mean you need to replace your brake lines before they break.

EKG, electrocardiograph, is a method of mapping your bodies heart beat. An EKG can help your doctor see the health of your heart. Your engine needs to be in time to run properly, just like your heart.

Make sure your body, like your car, keeps running strong. Preventative screenings from Life Line Screening can help you live a long and healthy life.
