TLC Medical in Tampa provides annual physicals and sports physicals for patients of all ages. Comprehensive medical evaluations from our experienced physicians can protect your long-term health and promptly address health concerns.
Annual physicals are crucial to staying healthy and preventing disease in people of all ages. At TLC Medical in Tampa, we have skilled, caring physicians on staff to perform your regular physical exams and protect your ongoing health.
Regular physical exams help identify health risks before they become serious concerns. By visiting your doctor once per year, you can receive the tests, screenings, and treatments that you need to stay as healthy as possible. Without regular exams, a medical concern could go undetected and have serious implications. Health risks that are caught early on during a physical can be more effectively treated.
The following are important aspects of regular physical exams:
- Review your family’s health history
Your family’s health history can be a window into the medical risks that you and your doctor should work to avoid. Your doctor can provide personalized recommendations in your physical exam according to your family history.
- Complete necessary tests and screenings
Different tests and screenings are required for people of different ages. By attending your annual physical, you can ensure that you’ve been checked for all potential health risks, including cancer. Regular screenings can also help you maintain your health by showing abnormalities in blood pressure, cholesterol, and body mass index (BMI).
- Get up-to-date on vaccinations
Various vaccinations are recommended for people in every stage of life. You can receive the vaccinations that you need to stay healthy in your annual physical.
- Revisit your medical records
Regular updates to your medical records will improve the quality of your medical care. Changes to your prescription medications, lifestyle habits, mental health, and allergies will all inform the medical care that you receive.
To continue doing the sport that you love, you need to stay at the top of your game. That means that you need to maintain your health and wellness. Regular sports physicals are important to evaluate your health and help you reach peak performance.
Sports are physically demanding and can lead to injury. Many athletes push through injuries so that they can continue to participate in their sport. But in doing so, athletes often prolong the recovery period for the injury, leading to worsened symptoms and more time spent on the sidelines. If an injury is left untreated for too long, it may even pull an athlete from the game for good.
Regular sports physicals can help prevent severe injuries. By identifying injuries before they become severe, your care provider can help you recover as quickly as possible.
