Why are pediatrics exams so important?
Pediatric exams are an essential part of health and wellness for children of all ages, and a need that no family should overlook. Far too many parents only bring their children in for care once an unexpected illness or injury arises.
This approach fails to take advantage of all that preventive health has to offer. Routine pediatrics visits, also called well child exams, allow your child’s practitioner to assess their health and development.
Pediatrics exams are also the setting for your child to receive the vaccines needed to develop a healthy immune system. Simply ask about the schedule of routine childhood vaccines. Your pediatrics practitioner can also check your child’s immunization record to determine if they are current.
Of course, acute care visits, also called sick visits, are always available in the event symptoms arise.
What are specialized physicals?
Specialized physicals are health assessments required by a child’s school, athletic organization, or other group. These physicals are designed to determine if a child is healthy enough to participate in certain activities.
Many schools require a physical exam as part of the enrollment process. Camps also often ask for an exam at the time of registration.
If your child is planning to participate in organized youth athletics, a sports physical is likely to be part of the process. These exams strive to ensure that your child can safely participate in athletic practice and play.
How often do I need to bring my child in for pediatrics visits?
During the first couple of years, your little one needs to come in for frequent pediatric visits. These appointments focus on tracking their development and educating parents on how to best support their baby’s needs.
Older kids usually benefit from coming in for an annual visit for pediatrics. These visits continue to track development, and also teach children how to take control of their own health and wellness. As your child gets to know and trust their practitioner, they feel more comfortable asking questions and expressing concerns.
Outstanding pediatric care sets kids up for a lifetime of healthy interactions with their health team. They’ll know where to turn when health issues arise. More importantly, coming in for routine physical exams will become just a normal part of life.
