Physicals Q&A

 

Why are routine annual physicals important?

An annual physical is a time for you to visit the doctor when you’re NOT experiencing symptoms of another illness. This helps your provider understand your baseline of health, observe health trends, and identify any risk factors for disease. During your annual physical, the team at Luminance HBC Medical Clinic updates your medical records so your health report stays current. When you have regular physicals, it helps you avoid many common health problems. If you have risk factors, your doctor detects them at your exam and can help you reverse course to avoid complications.

 

How do physicals help with chronic disease?

Many chronic illnesses have no outward symptoms until they’ve reached a dire state. For example, Type 2 diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) don’t necessarily cause obvious signs that you notice; but your doctor can discover them through regular screenings. If you already have a chronic disease, regular physicals can help determine if your current treatment plan is effective and helps you avoid unnecessary complications. 

 

What happens during routine annual physicals?

A routine physical usually starts with a measure of your basic vitals, including blood pressure, height, weight, temperature, and oxygen saturation levels.You’ll be asked about your recent medical history and if there are any updates in symptoms, hospitalizations, or major illnesses or injuries. You’ll also answer questions about your lifestyle, including exercise, diet, smoking, and alcohol use. This is a good time to ask any questions or to raise any concerns you have about your health. Your provider then performs a comprehensive exam that includes looking at your heart and lungs, palpating your thyroid gland at your neck, and evaluating your muscle tone. They check your reflexes and evaluate your eyes, ears, and nose, too. Your doctor recommends lab tests, like blood sugar (glucose) and cholesterol screenings. If they find anything unusual during your screening, they may recommend other blood or urine tests. They order screenings that are appropriate for your age and health history, like mammograms or colonoscopy. If you’re due for any immunizations, the doctor ensures you’re up-to-date.
