Annual Physicals Q & A
What are annual physicals?
Annual physicals are yearly checkups at Allied Healthcare Physicians that help your doctor assess your health. These exams help prevent, diagnose, or treat chronic diseases and other medical concerns before they become serious.
What should I expect during a physical?
When you arrive for a physical exam at Allied Healthcare Physicians, your medical provider checks your weight and vital signs and records your blood pressure. Your doctor reviews your medical history, performs a physical examination, and answers any questions you may have.
The medical team may recommend additional screening tests, blood draws, or imaging tests to diagnose a medical condition. For example, your doctor might screen you for:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol/triglycerides
- Diabetes or prediabetes
- Heart disease
- Prostate, colorectal, breast, or cervical cancer
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Hormonal imbalances
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Depression or anxiety
- Low bone density
Women may require a pelvic exam to assess the health of internal reproductive organs and men might be due for a prostate or testicular exam.
For children, your provider checks height, weight, and physical development. Allied Healthcare Physicians offers vaccines and lifestyle advice as needed.
Which treatment might I require after a physical?
If you’re in good health you may not require treatment at all after an annual physical. In some cases your doctor might recommend:
Making lifestyle changes helps reduce or prevent certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Your doctor might suggest you make diet or exercise changes, lose weight, or quit smoking to reduce disease risks.
Natural remedies may help treat certain health conditions, such as high cholesterol, high triglycerides, or chronic pain. Your doctor might recommend taking dietary supplements, doing at-home stress relief techniques, or trying acupuncture or massage to restore your health.
Medications keep high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high blood sugar in check. Medicines also help control symptoms of depression, anxiety, menopause, and hormone imbalance.
