The Importance of School Physicals
Yearly school physicals can benefit both children and parents in several ways. A physical can determine whether or not your child is up-to-date in vaccines, treatments, or any other kind of medical attention they need.
Looking at these factors is crucial to determine if they may or may not be up against any kinds of illnesses or diseases. This not only helps to safeguard the health of your child but also protects the children that surround or interact with your little one. Preventative care can be conducted with a physical at our clinic.
What Your Child Should Expect During a School Physical
During your child’s physical, the pediatrician will do a quick run-down for your child. They will examine your child’s ears, nose, eyes, weight, and limbs to ensure everything is working properly. Your child has absolutely nothing to worry about.
If your child’s pediatrician finds anything, they will discuss these concerns and follow up with your child as soon as possible.
We approach every single one of our patients with a warm welcome. We ensure them that they are safe and that the physical won’t take up much of their time! Before they know it, the physical will be done! If there are no medical concerns, you and your child can be on your way!
Things Doctors Look For During a School Physical
Pediatric doctors also check for healthy pulses, which can be easily assessed in the arms and legs. None of these tests hurt, they are just a quick check to ensure your child is growing at the rate they should be. Joints are also examined, which can determine if your child would be able to play sports or not.
