DOT Physicals in Fenton
Helping You Become Work-Ready!
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is an assessment designed to ensure that a driver meets certain medical standards. To become and remain DOT compliant and legally hold a commercial driver's license, commercial drivers must undergo regular DOT physicals. Fortunately, at First Stop Chiropractic, we offer the convenience of DOT physicals here at our office! Our team will help you determine if you meet the commercial driving qualifications established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
This type of examination typically takes about 45 minutes. During the appointment, we evaluate the driver's physical and mental status, conduct vision screenings and review their medical history to determine if they are qualified to drive safely. We recommend bringing a list of any medications you’re currently taking and wearing eyeglasses, if applicable. We also recommend avoiding caffeine before your DOT physical, if possible, as that can cause extra shakiness.
Maintaining DOT Compliance
DOT physicals are essential for commercial drivers in Fenton and High Ridge to become and remain work-ready. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all drivers of commercial motor vehicles to pass a DOT physical before they can legally operate those vehicles. Receiving regular DOT physicals ensures that drivers are healthy and fit to drive, thus promoting safety on the roads and protecting the lives of others.
At First Stop Chiropractic, our professional staff provides comprehensive health assessments and care for those in need of a DOT physical. We are knowledgeable and experienced in DOT regulations, and we’re here to help make the process as stress-free as possible.
Your physical will likely include the following:
- Clinical exam
- Vision test
- Hearing test
- Blood pressure screening
- Medical history questionnaire
- Any necessary follow-up appointments
After your physical we will provide a detailed report outlining the specific areas that were evaluated and our findings, along with any restrictions or recommendations for continued monitoring. If needed, we can also provide chiropractic care to help relieve any pain or discomfort that may be hindering your ability to drive safely and comfortably. We offer services such as chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, shockwave therapy, and more.
Your DOT physical will help your chiropractor understand if any additional services are needed to help you work without discomfort. These additional appointments can also be booked through our online portal.
