What Is a Physical Exam?
Physicals prevent serious health problems and include an evaluation by a medical professional and a consultation about any health concerns. If medical concerns arise, there may be a need for additional care including diagnostic imaging and/or urinalysis. Physicals assure patients that there are no underlying health problems to worry about. A physician will tailor the exam to every patient’s unique health history, medical needs, and exam findings.
A MEDcare medical provider will begin the exam with a physical assessment. This includes an evaluation of the:
- Skin and nails
- Vital signs (pulse, heart rate, respiration, temperature)
- Height and weight
Depending on the type of physical exam it could also include:
- Diagnostic Testing: EKG, Vision Test, Drug and Alcohol Testing
- Health History: The physician will review past health history and current medications
- Tuberculosis (TB) Screening
School, Sports & Camp Physicals
For kids and teens, physicals are often required for participation in school, sports, and camp. Screening for pre-existing injuries, illnesses, and other health conditions is important preventative care. Physicals not only satisfy prerequisites for participation but also act as a safety precaution. If there is a medical condition that causes a predisposition to injuries or susceptibility to illness, it should be treated immediately. To protect the health of athletes, students, and campers, MEDcare provides convenient physical exams 7 days per week.
Need a Physical Examination Before Enrolling In School?
Most schools require documentation of a physical examination and updated vaccinations to avoid contagious illnesses that can spread swiftly. This process ensures that a student can safely participate in physical education, school sports, and extracurricular activities.
