If you work for the department of transportation, then you will have to undergo a physical on a regular basis. Fortunately, this physical can generally be performed fairly quickly and it is not painful. The reason for making you go through the physical is that the department of transportation wants to make sure its drivers are in good health when they are behind the wheel and on the road. For now, let's take a quick look at what you can expect during your DOT physical as well as the places you can have one performed. 

Where can I get a DOT physical?

Fortunately, you won't have to look far to book a DOT physical. Your place of employment will likely tell you where they want you to go to have your physical performed. There are many chiropractors that can perform this type of physical. In fact, if you live in the Washington Township, you will have a chiropractor very close by who can perform your DOT physical. 

What to expect during a DOT physical?

When you come in for your physical, you should expect to spend about an hour or so. The DOT exam is going to consist of several parts, including blood pressure checks, questions, and more. Most doctors who perform this type of exam will listen to your heart and lungs, perform a vision test, and perform a hernia check. Also, it is not uncommon for doctors to check for spinal deformities and perform a neurological exam.
