The Importance of Back-to-School Physicals

Routine checkups are vital to ensuring your child is healthy, and it’s a smart idea for starting a successful school year, even if it’s not required by your child’s school. Childhood is a time of rapid growth, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. Certain cognitive or behavioral problems such as being disruptive in the classroom could have a physical origin, such as poor eyesight, or even a psychological illness such as depression or ADHD. Make a list of all your concerns, and your child’s doctor can address these with you.

Back-to-school physicals are important because they:

  • Check developmental processes: Your child’s physician will check for any problems relating to development, and any necessary intervention can start early. One of the most important elements of a pediatric physical is examining the heart and ensuring it is strong and healthy, and the child isn’t suffering from any symptomless heart condition.
  • Provide Immunizations: Routine checkups involve bringing your child’s immunization records to ensure their shots are up-to-date. We provide many vaccines children need. Many schools require a vaccination history for admission.
  • Offer safety advice: Your doctor can advise you and your child on how to stay safe and healthy, such as regular helmet use while riding a bike, using a seatbelt in the car, and even telling parents to ensure any firearms in the home are secured.
  • Address student athlete concerns: If your child is a student athlete, there are additional considerations for their health and safety, including safe exercise practices and what to do in the event of an injury related to their sport.

We offer Routine checkups, physical exams and back-to-school physicals at AFC Urgent Care Suffolk.

As the parent, you can maximize the effectiveness of your child’s physical exam. By going in with a plan, especially if you have any specific concerns about your child’s health or development, you can make sure your child doesn’t fall behind.
