Working as a commercial driver puts a lot of stress on the body. The job requires long hours spent sitting in one position, which can lead to cramping, back pain, soreness, muscle knots, and posture issues, and more. In addition to being licensed and tested with a given vehicle type, commercial drivers also need to pass the DOT Physical to ensure they are safe on the road. At Johnson Chiropractic and DOT center, we will help you reduce your pain and prepare you to pass DOT physicals at the same time.
The body is not adapted to spend extended periods behind the wheel. Long hours spent sitting in the same position can lead to postural issues including spinal misalignment. If left unaddressed spinal misalignment can produce an array of physical issues including lower back pain, sciatica, muscle cramping, and more. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your discomfort before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. Chiropractic care will reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process. Our portfolio of chiropractic treatments includes spinal adjustment, corrective exercises, muscle, and joint manipulation, neck and spinal correction, and more.
Our chiropractor can also address the ongoing and regular demand for DOT physicals. As every commercial driver in a safety-sensitive employee role knows, that DOT Physical is as important as having a specialized driver’s license. Without passing DOT physicals, drivers cannot perform their roles. The exam ensures drivers are physically capable of driving big vehicles on public roads without being a risk to others, including other commercial drivers. Our chiropractor can provide all the same reviews, testing, and physical evaluations as those during a DOT physical, and is available to sign off on the Medical Assessment Certificate required by drivers.
