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
- Discuss your family medical history
- Ask about allergies, medical conditions, and any prescription or non-prescription medications your child is taking
Depending on the child’s age, the clinician will ask about health habits, safety, and other health issues.
Why Is a School Physical Important?
A back-to-school physical is beneficial for a number of reasons.
- 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.
- It may 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.
- It allows you and your child to ask questions and get personalized health information.
