Why You Need a Physical

 

FastMed clinicians see children and adults to conduct physicals for the following reasons:

  • Sports. A sports physical will determine if it is safe to participate in a sport. Some sports programs require a physical exam, and others recommend them.

  • Camp. Most camps require a physical exam prior to attending the camp.

  • Basic. Even if you feel well and haven’t needed to see a doctor for a while, you should schedule a basic physical to ensure that you truly are in good health.

  • School. Before sending your child off to school, ensure that they are in good health with a physical exam.
