What Is a Physical Exam?

A physical exam is often called an annual exam, wellness exam, or annual physical. Physicals prevent serious health problems and include an evaluation by a medical professional, a consultation about any health concerns, and specialized testing, if necessary. If medical concerns arise, there may be a need for additional care including bloodwork, a chemistry panel, diagnostic imaging, 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 Health Choice medical provider will begin the exam with a physical assessment. This includes an evaluation of the:

  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Reflexes
  • Abdomen
  • 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
  • Bloodwork: Cholesterol, Liver panel, and Lipid panel
  • 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, Health Choice provides convenient physical exams 7 days per week.
