You always make sure everything is up to date after a new year rolls around. But what about your health? Think about an annual physical as a way to renew the most important thing in your life: your well-being.
At First Care Medical Clinic, we offer complete annual physicals to help you stay ahead of your health and take preventive measures when necessary. Annual physicals also come with peace of mind, knowing you have an experienced team of medical professionals always monitoring your health.
Here are just a few reasons why the annual physical should be near the top of your to-do list this year.
Screening for good health
To help you determine the baseline of your health state, we offer screening tools for some of the most common ailments. This way, you can catch conditions early on, before complications occur.
For example, during a physical, our team at First Care Medical clinic looks at any abnormalities and signs of infections or swelling. Our team may also take a look at your vision, hearing, heart health, lung function, and more.
If you have a family history of heart disease or diabetes, or if you’re simply concerned about developing these issues, you can get screened for these conditions at our on-site lab.
Infants can also benefit from annual screenings, as our team offers immunizations for contagious diseases such as chickenpox, measles, and hepatitis.
You can find out more about the types of physical we offer on our annual physicals page.
Putting together an action plan
In addition to screening, our team can also instruct you on what you can do next to either prevent or manage existing conditions.
For example, if you suffer from prediabetes, there are many steps you can take to prevent the onset of diabetes, and we can help you with both dietary and fitness advice. The same can be said about high cholesterol and other markers that are improvable when caught early on.
Learn more about your health
If you’ve noticed any symptoms or signs that your body is no longer working the way it should, we’re listening. And although we automatically check some boxes, such as your vitals, it’s important to share your concerns with a medical professional.
This one-on-one time with an expert is an investment in your health that pays off for a lifetime. Our team looks at your medical history and your risks, and informs you of what you can do to live a longer and happier life, disease-free.
