Many people think of the doctor’s office with a sense of dread. It’s often thought of as a place where you go when you’re sick. However, your doctor’s office is also a place you can go for preventative measures that keep you healthy and feeling great. An important such preventative measure is an annual physical. In fact, many health insurance companies offer incentives to members who get a yearly physical.
As you age, it becomes increasingly important to schedule an annual physical exam. There are also various screenings that are important to get once you age, such as colonoscopies, prostate exams, and mammograms. The frequency of these vary depending on your age and your medical history.
Your physical will vary depending on your medical history and unique needs. Speak openly with your doctor about any health concerns you may have so that they can better assess your personal needs. A battery of tests usually isn’t necessary, and providing your medical history can help prevent unnecessary tests from being performed.
During your visit, feel free to speak with your physician about lifestyle tips, such as eating a healthier diet or getting a better night’s sleep. It’s likely that they can provide you with helpful tips and suggestions to improve your quality of life.
