Physical Examination Center in Lakeland, FL

Annual physical exams

A physical examination helps your PCP to determine the overall status of your health. A physical examination is recommended at least once a year, especially in those patients over the age of 40. These exams are used to:

  • check for any possible diseases so that they can be detected and treated early
  • identify any issues that may become major medical concerns in the future
  • update any necessary immunizations
  • ensure that you are maintaining a healthy overall diet, exercise routine and check for any mental health needs

You can expect vital sign assessment, including height/weight measurements. A comprehensive physical exam will be performed, and you may also be referred for blood testing to diagnose any nutritional or metabolic deficiencies.  Radiologic testing including mammograms, colonoscopies etc. may also be recommended.

School physical

School physical exams are often required for school entry. Regular screenings and routine physical exams are often necessary to detect any major health concerns and determine vaccination status. Students starting school public schools for the first time are required to have a school-entry physical to ensure that they have no major health concerns and to determine if their childhood vaccines are up to date.

Sports physical exams

Sports physical exams will help to determine whether it’s safe for a child or adolescent to participate in specific physical activity. Most schools will require a sports physical exam before a child is able to participate in that activity. Here are some reasons why it’s important for your child to get a sports physical:

  • Determine safe participation in a physical activity
  • Identify any conditions that may limit sport participation
  • Identify conditions that may require a treatment and management, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or certain lung conditions, like asthma
  • Identifying any previous musculoskeletal injuries and recommend proper rehabilitation that can lead to lower injury rates.
  • Remove any unnecessary restrictions on participation in sports
  • Advise children and adolescents which sports would be appropriate for them to participate in
