Physicals Q & A

What are physicals?

Physicals are short for physical exams. These exams are designed to give your health care provider the opportunity to ensure your body is working as it should. 

Some physicals ensure you’re physically ready for involvement in a certain activity, like playing a sport or driving commercially. Some of the physicals offered at All Day Medical Care Clinic include:

  • School physicals
  • Sports physicals
  • Camp physicals
  • DOT physicals
  • Well woman visits
  • Employer-required physicals
  • Annual physicals

You can call to schedule an annual physical with your primary care provider at All Day Medical Care Clinic. They also utilize physical exams during urgent care. 

What happens during a physical?

Your physical exam is tailored to you and, if applicable, any requirements for the specific type of physical you need. 

This way, All Day Medical Care Clinic delivers a thorough health screening that’s right for your body and health history while also ensuring you get the physical your employer, school, or other third party requires. That said, all physicals have a few aspects in common:

Vitals, lungs, and heart check

Your physical starts with a check of your vitals like your blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature. Then, your heart and lung health is tested by listening to the performance of both with a stethoscope.

Health history

The All Day Medical Care Clinic team asks about both your personal and family health history. This helps them learn about any of your heightened risk factors so they can screen you accordingly. 

Relevant screenings

Your physical includes the screenings that All Day Medical Care Clinic recommends based on your unique risk factors. For example, if you have a family history of a certain condition, they’ll screen you for that. 

If you’re a man, they might perform a prostate health screening. If you’re a woman, they may recommend a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer. Similarly, they often check children and adolescents for scoliosis. 

How often should I get a physical?

Health professionals recommend getting an annual physical. This way, the All Day Medical Care Clinic team can keep a finger on the pulse of your overall health, helping you protect it long-term.
