What to Expect During a Physical
When you bring your child to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for a physical, he or she will be seen by an experience medical professional who will:
- Review your child’s health history, including illnesses, injuries, surgeries, or any other health conditions
- Check your child’s vital signs including blood pressure, pulse, height, and weight
- Perform an eye exam to determine if your child needs to get glasses or contacts
- Evaluate your child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, nose, ears, and throat to assess if he or she may have any limitations when it comes to physical activities
- Check your child’s flexibility, strength, posture, and joint function to see if he or she will be susceptible to certain injuries
It’s important to keep in mind that a sports, camp, or school physical is not a substitute for a more comprehensive annual exam and will not involve immunizations or further testing. Your child will still need to receive that exam at a later time.
