What Is a Physical?

A physical exam is a preventive wellness check-up. During your physical, we screen for health concerns or medical conditions that needs to be treated.

Physicals generally include a review and examination of your:

  • Medical history
  • Family medical history
  • General physical health
  • Height and weight
  • Vital readings such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate and temperature
  • Vision
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Abdomen
  • Reflexes
  • Balance
  • Muscle strength
  • Lab tests (as needed)
  • Immunizations (as needed to ensure you’re up to date)

Please note, a sports, camp or school physical does not replace your child’s annual wellness exam done by his or her pediatrician.
