Physical Exam FAQS
You need a physical exam to keep your health in check. Some individuals may be obliged to get a pre-employment physical exam to confirm that they are physically fit for the job.
Your child needs a physical examination in order to enroll in classes, engage in sports, and attend summer camp. A physical examination might also identify any condition that requires extra medical attention, such as asthma or cardiovascular disease.
In a physical exam, there are two main parts – medical history and the physical exam. Although certain aspects of the exam will depend on the type of physical you are having.
During a medical history, the doctor will review your family history for any serious illnesses or medical conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, etc. It is unsafe to participate in sports or other rigorous physical activity if you or your child are experiencing or have experienced in the past:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Heart murmurs
When pre-existing conditions are discovered or brought up in the examination, the doctor can prescribe proper medication.
During a routine physical exam, the doctor will:
- Test your vision
- Take blood pressure and pulse rate (heart rhythm)
- Check your heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat
- Evaluate your joints, flexibility, and reflexes
After the physical exam, the doctor will either sign the OK for being able to participate in physical activities or they may recommend special care instructions. For employment, they may prescribe a follow-up exam, extra testing, or specialized treatment for medical concerns.
