What is an Annual Physical?
You may assume that you are in excellent health if you do not have any symptoms of being sick. Unfortunately, some of the most common health problems may show little to no symptoms, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes. That is why it is beneficial for yearly physicals. During a health exam, we will check your vitals, weight, heart rate, blood pressure, and any further examination that our physicians deemed necessary. If additional testing, such as lab work, is needed, our primary care physicians and medical staff will guide you to help you in the right direction.
If you have a child that loves to play sports or be active in extracurricular activities, then a physical exam may be needed to participate. At CHRISTUS Health, we offer physicals that are available for all sports and extracurricular activities including football, softball, cheer, band, drill team, and ROTC. Our primary care providers will check your child's height, weight, blood pressure, vision, heart rate, lungs, stomach, ears, nose, throat, and reflexes to ensure it is safe for you or your child to start the sport or activity.
