What Does a Physical Entail?

Page subtitle


During a physical exam, your northstar urgent care physician records a benchmark of your vital signs—from cholesterol levels to blood pressure—and can, therefore, detect concerning changes at their earliest, most treatable stage.


At the beginning of your physical exam, you and your doctor talk about your current health. During this discussion, you should be open and honest about any symptoms or concerns you have. If you’re a new patient, your physician also takes a complete medical history and family medical history.


During your physical exam, your health care provider will also assess your:

  • Heart Rate
  • Lung Function
  • Height and Weight
  • Blood Pressure
  • Respiration
  • Lymph Nodes
  • Reflexes
  • Abdominal Health

What if the Doctor Finds a Problem?

Patients are usually frightened when they find out they have a medical problem, but that shouldn't stop you from scheduling a physical exam. Early detection of a problem is the best way to preserve your good health.


If your physician detects potentially severe health problems early on, alleviating them is usually straightforward. More often than not, lifestyle treatments and medications are the only required steps for relieving medical complications early on.

When Should I Get a Physical Exam?

A physical exam is one of the most important steps that patients can take to ensure their overall health and wellness. While you should certainly schedule a physical exam when you feel like something’s wrong, you should also schedule one on a yearly basis.


Most patients only schedule a medical check-up when they know something is wrong. However, several conditions don’t manifest symptoms until they’ve reached life-threatening stages. Such conditions include but aren’t limited to:

• Cancer

• Heart Disease

• High Cholesterol


By proactively scheduling physicals on a yearly basis, you can get medical insight and help before you start developing life-threatening conditions.


You should also schedule a physical whenever you start a new sport so you can ensure that you’re fit and healthy enough to participate.


If you’re ready to take charge of your health proactively, don’t hesitate to book an appointment at northstar urgent care.
