Physicals Q & A

What are physicals?

Physicals at ProTelix Health Clinic are examinations that assess your overall health and wellness. They detect or rule out problems that could prevent you from safely participating in sports, school, work, or camp activities. ProTelix Health Clinic specialists offer a variety of physicals, including Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, to meet your needs.

Why are physicals important?

Scheduling a physical can offer you numerous benefits. Physicals are required for participating in many jobs or activities, and they allow your provider to detect minor health concerns before they become serious. Early detection and treatment is one of the best ways to prevent the need for costly or invasive medical procedures.

What happens during physicals?

During physicals, your ProTelix Health Clinic specialist often completes the following steps:

Vital signs check

Your provider assesses your weight, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, pulse, temperature, and other vital signs when you arrive at your physical.

Medical history review

With a medical history review, your primary care specialist discusses your personal and family medical history, medications you may take, and your lifestyle.

Physical exam

During a physical examination, your provider assesses your overall health and wellness. They check your throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more and look for signs of illnesses, diseases, and injuries. They also evaluate your vision and hearing in many cases.

Diagnostic testing

If you’re at risk of a health problem or experience symptoms of one, experts at ProTelix Health Clinic may recommend you complete lab testing, heart function tests, urine tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to detect or rule out serious medical issues.

Treatment (if needed)

Your provider offers a variety of treatments (if needed) to improve your health and reduce the risk of complications. They could recommend home remedies, lifestyle changes, medications, physical therapy, vision correction, or other treatments needed to pass your physical.

When should I schedule physicals?

Schedule a wellness checkup annually (every year) to maximize your health and wellness, and reduce the risk of diseases. Book a physical if you need one for work, school, sports, or camp.
