Annual Physical Q & A

What is an annual physical?

An annual physical is a yearly whole-body health exam focused on preventive care. Annual physicals aren't like sick visits, in which you have an acute illness. Instead, you usually have annual physicals when you're well (or, at least not seriously ill). 

An annual physical at Regenerative Medical Group is an opportunity to check in with your primary care provider regarding your current state of health. During this visit, you can learn about potential issues and how to prevent or manage them effectively. 

What does an annual physical include?

Regenerative Medical Group customizes annual physicals for your needs, but in general, this type of exam starts with the basics. The team checks all of the following:

  • Height and weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Pulse
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Reflexes
  • Stomach
  • Spine
  • Internal organs

In addition to these basic evaluations, the team monitors chronic disease, for example, diabetes, during your annual physicals. They check for signs of disease progression and evaluate the effectiveness of your current management plan.

Annual physicals may include immunizations if you're due for them or need them for special reasons like planned travel. 

Screening tests, which the team customizes for your age and risk factors, are another important part of your annual physical. Typical screening tests can include blood work and urine testing. 

Regenerative Medical Group believes that mental wellness matters, and that's why annual physicals also include emotional and mental wellness screenings. The team may ask about your sleep patterns, personal relationships, stress levels, memory, and other facets of your life so they can help you maximize your health. 

Do I need further treatment after my annual physical?

It depends on your current state of health and your wellness goals. If you're in peak health and don't need to make any changes, you might not need to come back until next year. 

During your annual physical, you have ample opportunity to talk about your health concerns and needs with your caring medical providers. Based on your unique situation, the team can craft any treatment plan needed. 

Regenerative Medical Group uses a hybrid approach, combining conventional medical approaches like medication with hands-on osteopathic medicine and cutting-edge regenerative medicine treatments. This unique combination gives you access to all the treatments you need to enjoy your best health.
