Wellness Q & A

What is wellness?

Wellness is an intentional process in which you actively work toward a healthy lifestyle for both your body and mind. The right wellness plan can help you maintain your weight, improve your health, and prevent future disease. Dr. Zweiback’s training is rooted in internal medicine and holistic care for your body, focusing on health maintenance and prevention to keep you in the best shape possible.

How can a wellness plan improve my health?

The best way to treat an illness is to prevent it from developing in the first place. Regular checkups and physical exams at Zweiback Medical Associates can help you stay ahead of future health concerns such as heart disease, diabetes, shortness of breath, osteoarthritis, and more.

Preventive medicine

Preventive measures such as diet and lifestyle changes, exercise, avoiding tobacco use, and limiting alcohol intake can help lower your risk of chronic conditions, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Certain cancers (lung cancer, colorectal cancer, etc.)
  • Respiratory disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Injury

A simple health screening may be enough to tell Dr. Zweiback exactly which diet and lifestyle changes can help you maintain and improve your health for the future.

Holistic care

Holistic care for your body and mind means maintaining your health, especially if you are at risk of developing potentially dangerous conditions like diabetes and heart disease. In addition to preventing future health problems from impacting your life, Dr. Zweiback provides anti-aging services to keep you looking and feeling young. As a primary care physician, he utilizes osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to diagnose and treat illness and injury. OMT gently moves and stretches your joints and muscles to keep you feeling young and active.

What makes this practice different?

Before earning his medical degree, Dr. Zweiback worked as a cosmetologist and artist, so his attention to detail when treating patients is unmatched. He understands that visiting a doctor is not always a top priority, even when you know it’s in your best interest. That’s why he has made it a point to run an office that feels more like a luxury spa than a sterile doctor’s office.

Because Dr. Zweiback is committed to providing a relaxing experience for his patients, he favors holistic care and preventive medicine over invasive surgical procedures and heavy medications to improve your health. This allows him to treat his patients to natural care that can be maintained at home.

Dr. Zweiback’s unique experience and passion for natural care can help you lead your healthiest life. To learn more about the wellness services he offers, call Zweiback Medical Associates, or book an appointment online today.
