What are physicals?
Physicals are medical health assessments that you may need for a variety of reasons such as travel, work, school, or sports. They are important as they allow us to monitor your condition and wellbeing, but also identify any potential issues that may affect your health. Early detection allows us to begin treatment before the condition becomes more severe, giving a higher success rate of treatment.
For the most part, everyone undergoes the same physical exam. However, there are differences when it comes to reproductive health. During your physical, we may conduct additional tests or exams particular to your reproductive organs such as a pelvic or prostate exam.
What happens during a physical?
The exact procedure will depend on what type of physical you are having. During the exam, we will review your medical and family history for any potential risk of health complications. If there are any concerns, additional health screenings may be required.
This is a great time to let us know of any concerns or questions you may have regarding your health.
A physical examination typically begins with the measurement of vital signs and responses before undergoing a more comprehensive examination of your condition and health.
