Physical Exams Q & A

What are physical exams?

Physical exams at Colorado Springs Family Practice include evaluations, disease screening, and treatments, if needed, to keep you healthy or detect medical problems before they turn serious. You might require a physical exam because of your job, school, or being on a sports team. It’s a good idea to see your primary care provider at least once yearly for a checkup.

What should I expect during physical exams?

During physical exams at Colorado Springs Family Practice, a friendly specialist greets you and often completes:

Vital signs check

Your provider evaluates your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They also weigh you and assess your body mass index (BMI). In kids, they evaluate growth, development, and length or height. 

Medical history review

During a medical history review, your Colorado Springs Family Practice provider asks about your medication regimen, personal and family history of disease, lifestyle habits, and possible symptoms.

Physical exams

Your primary care provider assesses your overall health and wellness during a physical exam. They evaluate your eyes, ears, throat, neck, abdomen, reflexes, and more. Your provider also listens to your breathing and heartbeat. They offer pelvic exams and Pap tests for women, and prostate exams for men.

Diagnostic tests

Colorado Springs Family Practice offers on-site diagnostic testing. They provide blood tests, urine testing, X-rays, and more.

Treatment

If you have an illness, disease, or injury, your Colorado Springs Family Practice provider helps you manage it. They offer prescription medications, lifestyle-change counseling, and specialist referrals, if necessary. Colorado Springs Family Practice also offers birth control for women, vaccinations, and other preventive medicine solutions. 

When should I schedule physical exams?

Schedule a physical exam at least once yearly or anytime you need one as a requirement for a job, school, or sports. 

Children under age 3 should see their primary care provider more than once yearly to ensure they stay healthy and grow and develop properly.
