Is this what makes a routine procedure ethical?
strengthening [a part of] your body despite you experiencing major discomfort after it's performed
Example (I just made it up):
Pretend there's a quick procedure that's done especially in an age-range once in a while to lower your risk of cancer (the patient doesn't mention it at all; the professional just does it to everybody) but it always resulted in you and plenty of others getting a headache.
Is that what makes it ethical: because it's for your own good?
And may I add and that it's the only proven way to carry out that certain benefit during a checkup/exam at an office?
And I also just realized that it's even recommended by the authority organizations and/or major associations?

No. The ends do not justify the means. A person has the right to determine what procedures are enacted upon their body and even if the results of such are very beneficial to a person, they have the right to informed consent and refusal.
