What to Expect During a School Physical
During your child’s physical examination, our certified clinician will:
- Record your child’s height and weight
- Examine eyes, ears, nose, and throat
- Check vision and hearing
- Check breathing function along with heart and lungs
- Take blood pressure
- Screen for conditions like scoliosis
- Check on your child’s physical and motor development, depending on age
We will also ask about your family medical history, allergies, medical conditions, and any prescription or non-prescription medications your child is taking. And depending on the child’s age, the clinician may inquire about health habits, safety, and other health issues.
Your child’s health is our top priority. At Fast Track Urgent Care, we pride ourselves on the expertise of our board-certified clinicians. They provide the same level of care you’d expect from your regular doctor’s office. You can have peace of mind knowing your child’s health is in capable hands.
Why Is a School Physical Important?
Our experienced, board-certified providers perform a thorough range of health assessments during the school physical. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to your child’s health. You can trust us to provide a detailed assessment that ensures your child is in the best possible condition for the school year ahead.
What’s more, a back-to-school physical is beneficial for a number of reasons. This is because it determines your child’s current state of health and can detect possible illnesses, injuries, and other issues that may go unnoticed without a proper medical examination.
During a school physical, the doctor may also discover pre-existing conditions—such as asthma, sprains, etc.—as well as uncover any problems before they’re potentially made worse. When pre-existing conditions are discovered or brought up in the examination, the doctor can prescribe medication or an improved medication, particularly for asthma.
