Physical Examinations Q&A

What are physical examinations?

Physical examinations are routine consultations with your primary care provider at Vital Clinic and Spa to identify potential health problems.

Depending on their purpose, they might vary in some respects but typically involve a review of your overall health, a detailed evaluation of your vital signs, and a look at your family medical history.

Physical examinations also provide an opportunity to discuss any health concerns you have, receive advice on healthier living, and arrange age-appropriate screenings for diseases like cancer.

Vital Clinic and Spa offers a range of physical examinations for adults and children aged 10 and over.

What do physical examinations cover?

A physical exam might include checks on your:

  • Blood pressure
  • Temperature
  • Heart rate
  • Respiration rate
  • Reflexes
  • Heart and lung sounds
  • Throat and tonsils
  • Ears, nose, and sinuses
  • Eyes
  • Lymph nodes and glands
  • Teeth and gums
  • Muscle strength
  • Nerve responses and balance
  • Skin, hair, and nails
  • Joints

Your provider at Vital Clinic and Spa might take blood and/or urine onsite for testing. These tests typically look for infectious diseases, blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and conditions like anemia and hormone imbalances.

What kind of physical examinations are available?

Vital Clinic and Spa offers well-man and well-woman exams, DOT physicals, and school physicals.

Well-man physical examination

A well-man exam covers all the basic health checks for conditions that affect men and women, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and mental health conditions. It also includes concerns that are unique to men, such as prostate and testicular cancer, benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), and erectile dysfunction.

Well-woman physical examination

A well-woman exam covers a wide range of health problems common to all, as well as issues unique to women. These could include:

  • Menopause
  • Period pain
  • Birth control
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer

A well-woman exam includes a Pap smear, if you're due for one, to check for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and early signs of cervical cancer.

Some conditions, like osteoporosis and hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland), affect men and women but are more common in women. 

DOT physical examinations

A DOT (Department of Transportation) physical is something people who drive for a living must do. It ensures that both the driver and the public stay safe. DOT physicals check your blood pressure, vision, and hearing, require urinalysis for drug testing, and assess problems that could affect your safety to drive, such as sleep apnea and certain heart conditions.

School physicals

Children often need school physicals to ensure they're physically fit and able to take part in activities and sports.

Vital Clinic and Spa also offers specialist sports physicals for children and adults to check their fitness for a particular sport.
