What is a School Physical?
The annual school physical is an important aspect of your child’s healthcare routine, and many school systems require students to submit proof of an up-to-date physical each year. The point of the exam is to check up on your child’s health and see if there are any causes for concern. School physicals vary depending on your child’s age and the requirements of your school district, but typically include:
- A review of their medical history
- Measuring their vital signs, height, and weight
- Checking their eyes, ears, nose, and throat
- Evaluating their spine and posture
- Administering immunizations, if necessary
- Checking their reflexes and motor development
An annual school physical is also an opportunity to check for signs of chronic illnesses and other health concerns. Many conditions are more easily treatable when caught early, making regular physicals even more important.
Once the exam has been completed, the provider will sign any necessary paperwork so that you can submit it to your child’s school.
