Physical Exams Q&A

What are physical exams?

Physical exams are an important part of preventive health care. The physical exams at St. Mary’s Family Clinic, a primary care practice, help keep track of your health from one year to the next.

Annual exams also help identify potential health issues that you may have before you experience symptoms. Early detection of issues like high blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes ensures you get the treatment you need before complications occur.

St. Mary’s Family Clinic offers annual physical exams for men, women, and children by appointment or on a walk-in basis. The practice also provides free blood pressure checks in-between visits to identify hypertension (high blood pressure) in the earliest stage or monitor the condition.

Sports physicals are also available for athletes of all levels to ensure they’re healthy enough to play soccer, football, basketball, and other sports.

What happens during physical exams?

St. Mary’s Family Clinic offers physical exams that focus on the unique needs of men’s health, women’s health, and children’s wellness. 

During your physical exam at St. Mary’s Family Clinic, you can expect to answer questions about your existing health and your personal and family health histories. Your provider completes an exam and notes important details about your health, including your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Body temperature
  • Blood pressure
  • Joint strength and flexibility

Depending on your specific needs, you may also need blood testing and other lab work to assess your overall health.

After your exam is complete, your provider can recommend strategies like diet changes, daily exercise, and lifestyle improvements to boost your overall health and wellness. If you have a chronic disease that requires monitoring, your provider devises a treatment plan.

Why should I have physical exams?

The physical exams at St. Mary’s Family Clinic are appointments you schedule annually outside of your other medical appointments, like when you are sick. These exams ensure that you’re healthy from one year to the next.

Because you can have chronic health issues without having symptoms, annual physicals also help identify potentially serious diseases in the early stages. Treatment is typically most effective during this time.

Sports physicals are also essential because they confirm you or your child is healthy enough to play a favorite sport. Even if your sports organization doesn’t require a physical, you should still schedule one for your own peace of mind. During a sports physical, your provider can also recommend ways to prevent injuries and improve your game performance.
