Why are physical exams so important?

Physical exams allow you to receive most of your preventive health services. These visits ensure you get the screenings appropriate for your age, sex, and existing health conditions.

Screenings often detect signs of disease in the earliest possible stages. In many cases, this is when treatment is most effective. Regarding issues like hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, or diabetes, screenings can indicate you are on the brink of a diagnosis, empowering you to take action to avoid these chronic health conditions.

Your physicals also offer the chance to connect with your primary care practitioner to discuss any areas of concern you may have regarding your physical and mental health. You can even ask questions about topics like weight loss programs, stress management, sleep quality, and more.

What kinds of specialized physical exams are available?

Everyone benefits from routine physical exams, but there are times when you might need a specialized exam. Your primary care team at Cordova Medical Clinic offers a range of specialized exams to meet your needs.

Some examples of specialized medical exams include:

  • Pre-employment physicals
  • Travel physicals
  • Immigration physicals
  • Nursing home physicals
  • Clinical research exams
  • Organized athletics physicals

If you have questions about the availability of a specific physical exam, just call to ask for more information. The team at Cordova Medical Clinic has the experience and tools needed to meet the paperwork and other documentation requirements of a variety of specialized physical exams, and the turnaround time is brief.

How often do I need to come in for physical exams?

Most people benefit from coming in for an annual physical exam. This timeline reduces the risk that a health condition advances to a dangerous stage in between office visits.

If you have an existing health condition, you may need to come in for more frequent visits, including weight loss programs or chronic disease management. Once your needs are adequately met, you can return to routine annual exams.

If you’re overdue for a physical exam or have additional questions, call today to schedule a visit, or spend a few moments on the online booking page.
