Police officals health check up at Borivali Police Station
To mark World Health Day, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road hosted complimentary health check-ups to emphasize the significance of self-care and wellness for individuals in demanding professions such as police officers, Senior Citizens, Teachers & Media Professionals, benefiting from the free check-ups to enhance their overall quality of life and to emphasize the importance of lifestyle. Physician check-ups, blood sugar, Blood Pressure monitoring, and ECG were done to approx. 350 -400. Through this initiative, the Hospital honored these professionals who are a pivotal part of society by sending a powerful message of gratitude and acknowledgment
Police officers, teachers, and media Professionals often face significant health issues due to their erratic schedules and long working hours. These professions demand a high level of physical and mental alertness, leading to chronic stress, sleep disorders, urinary tract infections, high blood pressure, poor diabetes control, and poor dietary habits. They are often at risk of cardiovascular diseases, obesity, thyroid problems, and gastric issues. They also suffer from anxiety, depression, and burnout as they work in high-pressure environments with tight deadlines. The constant need to stay updated with rapid changes in their respective fields can disrupt their circadian rhythms and lead to disrupted sleep patterns. Teachers face exhaustion from managing classrooms all day, resulting in musculoskeletal problems such as back pain and headaches.  The long working hours combined with irregular schedules in these professions contribute to increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. This can weaken the immune system making individuals more prone to illnesses like colds or flu. Finding a balance between work and personal life is crucial for maintaining good health in these demanding occupations. It’s the right time for these professionals to take charge of their Health and Wockhardt Hospitals has come forward to help them focus on their well-being.
“Amid the hustle and bustle of demanding professions like journalism, teaching, and serving society as a policeman, neglecting personal health often takes a back seat. Policemen, journalists, and teachers are a vital part of society and are known to work to uplift citizens. But, the relentless pursuit of excellence in their respective fields leaves these individuals with little time to prioritize their well-being. Media Professionals are the fourth pillar of society and are responsible for educating the masses regarding health issues. The Hospital also included senior citizens in this initiative who neglect their health and often suffer in silence. Imagine a world where those who dedicate their lives to informing, inspiring, and protecting others no longer have to sacrifice their health for their professions. We celebrate and salute the unbreakable spirit of these professionals who risk their lives, and we offer free health to these unsung heroes dedicated to serving the community. A special block-building game was conducted for them containing various health messages. This event served as a reminder for everyone to pledge to maintaining overall well-being instead of neglecting any health problems,” said Dr. Pankaj Dhamija.
Dr. Pankaj Dhamija, Centre head, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said “ By availing themselves of these health checkups, these professionals can take proactive steps towards improving their overall well-being. This initiative not only benefits individuals but also contributes towards creating a healthier and more resilient community as a whole,”
“The demanding nature of our job as police officers often leads us to neglect health while serving and protecting the community. It’s easy to prioritize the well-being of others while putting our own needs on the back burner.  Such initiatives are invaluable reminders for us to take a step back and prioritize self-care. Regular health checkups help us identify any underlying health issues early and serve as a crucial opportunity to reset and realign our priorities toward personal wellness. By investing time in our health, we become better equipped to handle the demands of our profession. Kudos to Wockhardt Hospital for recognizing the importance of supporting our holistic well-being, and providing us with an avenue to receive the care and attention we deserve,” concluded Sr. Police Inspector Ninad Sawant and API Sachin Shikhare, Borivali Police Station.
