What are physicals?
Physical exams, or physicals, are health checkups that evaluate your general health and wellness. Dr. Tejani customizes physicals for every person’s individual needs and health goals.
There are several different types of physicals. Most people have a yearly physical to safeguard their whole-body health.
Additionally, some people may need more specialized physicals. For example, you might need a sports physical before joining a team or playing multiplayer sports.
What happens during physicals?
Your physical includes a comprehensive medical history review. Dr. Tejani asks about personal medical issues, family history, chronic conditions, allergies, past injuries, and current medications, particularly regarding anything that’s changed since your last physical exam.
Although every physical is tailored for your individual needs, some of the main goals during physical exams include:
- Health monitoring (wellness checks)
- Early detection of disease and health problems
- Management of diabetes, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, and other issues
- Tests and screenings
- Diet and weight management
If you’re having a specific type of physical, like a sports physical, your exam may focus on physical ability and function, including balance, strength, and flexibility.
How can I prepare for physicals?
Some physicals require special preparation, such as fasting before blood tests. If you need to fast or do anything else before your physical, Dr. Tejani lets you know ahead of time.
Because you may move around a lot during your physical, be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
What if physicals uncover new health issues?
If a physical exam uncovers health issues that you didn’t previously know about, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or Type 2 diabetes, this is your chance to take preventive steps.
Dr. Tejani emphasizes holistic methods of whole-body wellness, which means he considers every facet of your health and looks for true health solutions rather than temporary ones. With this approach, Dr. Tejani can help you avoid common health pitfalls and even optimize your health.
