What are physicals?

Physicals, or physical exams, are detailed examinations from your primary care provider or any other qualified professional. The team at Innovative Medical Clinic has the necessary training to give you a head-to-toe physical and a report of your overall health.

When you come in for a physical exam at Innovative Medical Clinic, the team performs a series of simple tests and compares your results to your prior medical history. They may recommend more intensive testing like imaging tests for more information on your health and functioning (depending on their findings).

A physical allows you to be more in touch with your health and identify needs you didn’t realize you had. Toward the end of your visit, the team offers personalized advice for staying healthy.

Which type of physical do I need?

Innovative Medical Clinic offers a few different physical exams to meet your needs. You can visit the clinic for:

Annual checkups

Annual checkups are a yearly opportunity to check in on your health and wellness. You can track trends in your health over time by getting a physical exam every year.

Pre-employment physicals

Pre-employment physicals are required for some occupations to show that you’re physically and mentally suited to fulfill your job duties.

School and sports physicals

School physicals are often a prerequisite for enrolling in the upcoming school year. You can also get sports physicals to make sure you’re in good shape to participate in sports programs.

What do physicals include?

A physical exam checks multiple organs and systems in your body to make sure they’re functioning well. While the exact steps of a physical can vary based on your age and the type of physical you get, you can expect it to include a check of your:

  • Ears, nose, and throat
  • Eyes and vision
  • Balance
  • Skin and general appearance
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Height and weight

The team asks multiple questions throughout your exam, mostly about any current symptoms and your habits. Be sure to bring up any medical concerns you have and medications you’re taking to your provider.
