A physical exam is one of the most important aspects of preventive care. Specifically, it’s a comprehensive check-up that assesses your physical and neurological health.
During a physical exam, your Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic provider checks your height, weight, and blood pressure; listens to your heart and respiratory rate; tests your reflexes, strength, and balance; examines your skin for any unusual moles or growths; and palpates your organs to determine their location and health.
Depending on your age, sex, and medical history, your provider might also order lab work or recommend immunizations or preventive screening procedures.
At Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic, the team offers several types of physical exams, including:
A traditional physical presents an opportunity to assess your general well-being. Your provider can pinpoint the cause of unusual symptoms, educate you on the importance of eating a nutritious diet and exercising regularly, or recommend preventive screening measures that align with your age and needs.
The Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic team can perform an electrocardiogram (EKG) or baseline lab testing to ensure that you’re in good health and help identify any early signs of disease.
If you or your child plays organized sports, the league or school district might require a sports physical. This type of physical exam determines if you’re fit enough to participate in games or other types of competition. Your provider can even provide tips and tricks to reduce the risk of sports-related injuries.
If you operate a bus, semi-truck, or another type of commercial vehicle for a living, you’re required to undergo a DOT physical every two years. If you have an underlying medical condition, like heart disease or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), yearly check-ups might be necessary.
When you pass a DOT physical, your Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic provider signs off on paperwork that you then submit to your employer.
