Professional driving also comes with its own unique challenges and dangers. From treacherous weather to poor road conditions, it’s crucial for drivers to stay in top shape.

That’s why the United States Department of Transportation has strict guidelines to regulate the health of commercial drivers. In order to maintain your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), you need to receive regular medical checkups and clearance from a certified practitioner.

Northgate Chiropractic has two DOT-certified doctors on-staff to do just that.

Dr. Buchanan and Dr. Spangler are both Certified Medical Examiners by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration so you can receive the exam you need from the comfort of our Rochester office.

You’re in good hands at Northgate Chiropractic Clinic. In fact, Dr. Buchanan holds a CDL himself and drives commercial vehicles on a regular basis.

Plus, commercial driving can wreak havoc on your spine health leading to chronic low back pain from sitting for long periods of time. Let Northgate Chiropractic monitor your spine to keep you healthy and pain-free on the job.
