What is an annual physical?

An annual physical is a routine checkup with your child’s pediatrician. At American Pediatrics, the team provides annual physicals for children of all ages. They ensure your child receives age-specific screenings and tests to keep track of their health and development over time. 

Your child’s annual physical at American Pediatrics happens only once a year, allowing you to plan and work these appointments around your family’s schedule. These physicals not only help your child maintain their long-term health and wellness but also address any topics of concern since your last visit. 

Depending on your child’s health needs, the team may recommend getting routine physicals. It’s important to keep in mind that annual physicals are different from other physicals your child might need such as school, sports, and employment physicals. 

What should my child expect during an annual physical?

Annual physicals involve a series of screenings for various health parameters. During your child’s physical, you can expect a check of their:

  • Height and weight
  • Vital signs (blood pressure and heart rate)
  • Ears, nose, and throat
  • Skin
  • Abdomen
  • Reflexes

Your child’s annual exams evolve with their age and health risks. During these visits, the team may also update their immunization history or recommend specific diagnostic tests according to your child’s health needs. 

How can my child improve their health between annual physicals?

One of the many advantages of getting an annual physical is pinpointing the areas of your child’s health that can benefit from lifestyle improvements.
