The team at MyCare Health Partners in South Miami is dedicated to conducting thorough physical examinations, tailored to suit the needs of the patient, holistically. These comprehensive check-ups help both us and our the patients get the full picture of their current health.
Routine Annual Physicals
Each patient has different needs, and no two patients are alike. While you might be suffering from some chronic conditions and regularly visit your doctor, others only schedule a visit when they feel overwhelming symptoms of an illness.
The importance of scheduling routine visits and checking your health is vital in this day and age, especially as you grow older and risk-factors increase over time.
Our healthcare professionals in South Miami are extremely dedicated people that want to get to know you, your health history and conduct all of the necessary physical exams to get the big picture. Physical appearance, vital signs, heart rate, palpatory checks, blood pressure, height and weight, lab tests and other relevant routines are a part of the routine physical.
School physicals are a good way to monitor growth and development of young patients as well as ensure they are up-to-date on vaccines before starting school. The exam also helps to check the young patient’s neurological development against the known milestones.
Physical and mental development of adolescents needs to be monitored closely, so potential problems found during the exam can be treated and remedied. Our young patients’ immunization record is extremely important in this process, as well as prescription medication used.
Here are some of the steps in this type of checkup:
- Talk about family medical history and child’s health record
- Height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, and BMI measurement
- Vision check, spinal and muscular development
- Evaluation of the heart, abdomen, eyes, nose, throat, lungs and lymph nodes
Regular exercise makes us healthy and it helps children develop. However, exercise also puts a strain on our body, which is why taking care of the effects and prevention of injuries is essential for all who practice sports vigorously.
Much like annual and school physical exams, sports physical lies on the same foundations of analysis and palpatory checks. The difference is during a sports physical we conduct a fitness assessment where we assess the patient’s capacity to engage in a certain sport. Additionally, as per each sport’s varying nature, joints, flexibility, skeletal and muscular development are also monitored.
