  • Physical Exams

    General overview of the service:

    Physical exams are essential to many aspects of health. A physical exam allows a health practitioner to detect a medical problem before it becomes serious. The exam can also provide reassurance that all is well.

    How the service is done:

    We provide physical exams for all ages, including well child exams, adolescent health exams, school and sports physicals, employee physicals, Commercial Driver License physicals, women’s and men’s health exams.

    What methods are used:

    These are some vital signs checked by your health practitioner:

    • Blood pressure: Less than 120 over 80 is a normal blood pressure. Doctors define high blood pressure (hypertension) as 140 over 90 or higher.
    • Heart rate: Values between 60 and 100 are considered normal. However, healthy people can have heart rates slower than 60.
    • Respiration rate: 12 to 16 breaths per minute is normal for a healthy adult. Breathing more than 20 times per minute can suggest heart or lung problems.
    • Temperature: 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is the average, but healthy people can have resting temperatures slightly higher or lower.

    Heart Exam: Checks for an irregular heartbeat, a heart murmur, or other clues to heart disease.

    Lung Exam: Checks for breath sounds including crackles, wheezes, or decreased breath. These and other clues indicate heart or lung disease.

    Head and Neck Exam: Checks your throat and tonsils, teeth and gums, ears, nose, sinuses, eyes, lymph nodes, thyroid, and carotid arteries.

    Abdominal Exam: Tapping your abdomen can detect liver size and presence of abdominal fluid; the health practitioner will also listen for bowel sounds with a stethoscope, and palpate for tenderness.

    Neurological Exam: Nerves, muscle strength, reflexes, balance, and mental state may be assessed.

    Dermatological Exam: Skin and nail exam could indicate a dermatological or other health problem.

    Extremities Exam: Pulses can be checked in arms and legs.
