Physicals Q&A

What are physicals?

Physicals are preventive exams that can identify underlying health issues in the earliest stages before you experience any symptoms. Many acute and chronic medical conditions are easier to treat when identified early.

Weekend Urgent Care offers routine physicals for children and adults. The providers perform comprehensive exams to ensure your body is functioning at peak levels. They also provide resources you can use to improve your health and wellness.

Typically, you should schedule a physical once a year even if you’re feeling well and have no concerns about your health. Children should also have an annual physical before a new school year starts.

What can I expect during routine physicals?

During your routine physical at Weekend Urgent Care, the medical providers spend time reviewing your personal and family medical histories. They also discuss your diet, lifestyle, and any concerns you have about your health.

As part of your physical, your provider completes a thorough physical exam and notes important details about your health, including your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Body temperature
  • Blood pressure
  • Reflexes
  • Muscle strength
  • Joint flexibility

Your physical is also a good time to get updated on vaccinations to protect against contagious diseases like measles, tetanus, and chickenpox. Weekend Urgent Care also offers the seasonal flu shot.

Additionally, the providers can recommend ways to boost your overall wellness, enhance your diet, and maintain a healthy body weight.

Will I need blood work during routine physicals?

If you have unexplained symptoms at the time of your physical or have concerns about your health, you might need blood work or another diagnostic test to determine the cause.

The Weekend Urgent Care medical providers may also request diagnostic testing and other preventive screenings if you have a family history or other risk factors for chronic health issues like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.

In the event your annual physical reveals that you have underlying medical issues, the Weekend Urgent Care providers can discuss your options for treatment or refer you to a specialist for additional care.
