School Physicals Jacksonville
Regardless of a child's grade, a yearly back-to-school physical exam by your family doctor is an important component of your children's annual healthcare. In some instances, a school physical may be the child's only contact with his or her doctor during the school year. The annual back-to-school exam not only affords an opportunity for the doctor to perform a complete physical examination but allows for an important exchange of information regarding childhood or teenage lifestyle issues as well as updating the student's family medical history. As your children age, so do their parents and grandparents which often reveals new hereditary medical concerns.
By documenting a student's medical history, regular school physicals can help your child's doctor stay aware of their progress and development over time. This allows for a proactive medical approach to detecting emerging problems as well as reviewing the child's past illnesses and injuries for any ongoing concerns. Whether your children are interested in academics, arts or sports, a healthy state is based on a combination of things, such as their school and home life, participation in school activities and extracurricular pursuits. Specific areas of health concern may include the student's nutrition, sleep, diet, athletic activities and the updating of recommended immunizations.
