Physical Exams

Pediatric Physical Exams in Moline IL.

It is incredibly important to visit our pediatricians at Pediatric Group Associates each year for a comprehensive physical exam and health screening to make sure your children are healthy.

What is the purpose of Physical Exams?

A Physical Exam is a comprehensive health exam performed by our team of pediatricians to make sure that your child is healthy. It’s important that you make sure you’re doing what you can to prevent certain illnesses from occurring and keeping your children as healthy as possible. Physical exams are important in making sure that there aren’t any issues that are going unnoticed and untreated and to make sure that your children's overall health isn’t of concern to you or your doctor.

What is involved in Physical Exams?

When your child comes into our Moline, IL office our nursing staff will take your child’s blood pressure, weight and height and vitals. We will also perform a quick vision screening. From there, our pediatricians will take over, going through your medical history and asking any questions about past illnesses, hospitalizations, injuries or surgeries. Details about your child’s medical history can help us pinpoint possible issues early on so that we prevent complications in the future.

Once we’ve gone through your child’s medical history, we will perform a thorough physical examination, checking their heart, lungs, stomach and musculoskeletal system to check for any signs of asthma, a heart murmur or past injuries that could impact their ability to play sports.

Why are Physical Exams so important for my child?

Detecting health problems through these physical examinations doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t play sports; however, it’s important to identify health issues early on in your child so that we can provide them with medication, lifestyle changes and even modifications to their current activities to prevent serious health complications.

For example, a child with asthma may be prescribed both a daily and a rescue inhaler to help control their symptoms throughout the day, even when playing sports. By providing your child with the medications and treatment they need now, we can prevent serious complications from happening.

Since your child’s health can change dramatically in just one year, it’s important that you bring your child into our office for their physical exam every year, approximately 4-6 weeks before the start of the school year.
