Make sure your child sees their pediatrician once a year for their physical exam.physical

A physical exam is something that every child has to do once a year. It might be something their school requests before they can start the school year or it may be mandatory if your child wants to be part of a sports team. Either way, it’s never too early to start thinking about when to get your child in to see our Mundelein, IL, pediatricians at Mundelein Pediatrics.

Why does my child need a school physical every year?

A lot can happen in one year, and these annual visits can ensure that we are keeping up and monitoring their growth and any changes to their health as they occur. It’s important that your Mundelein, IL, children’s doctor is up to date with all the information they need to ensure that your child stays healthy throughout the year. Problems can surface quickly. These annual exams ensure that if something does happen, we are here to handle them right away.

What is involved in getting a physical examination?

One of the reasons your child’s school may require that every child gets a physical is that this is also the perfect time to make sure your child is all caught up on their vaccines before the school year. Staying up-to-date on vaccines is not only important for protecting your child but also the health of other children.

On top of making sure your child has all their vaccinations, a thorough physical exam will help us check for a plethora of health issues from heart conditions to asthma to even old fractures that didn’t heal properly. By detecting these issues, we can determine the best ways to treat them and make sure that your child can continue to enjoy their favorite physical activities. We can also spend time educating your little one on precautions they can take to make sure they stay safe both on and off the field when at school.

We know that summer is a busy time. Your child may be involved in a lot of activities and the summer months may just fly by before you realize that you need to schedule their physical examination in Mundelein, IL. Don’t wait until the last minute, as appointments fill up fast. Schedule your appointment with Mundelein Pediatrics, serving the Grayslake, IL, area, and make sure your child gets the care they need well before the school year begins.
