An annual checkup is an essential part of a preventive health care plan. These checkups help the HealthyU Clinics practitioners stay on top of all aspects of your health and track changes that develop from year to year.
The primary care specialists recommend annual checkups for all members of your family once a year, even when you’re feeling great and not experiencing any unusual symptoms.
Annual checkups provide an opportunity for the HealthyU Clinics physicians to assess your overall physical, mental, and emotional health each year.
These checkups help the providers identify potential warning signs of chronic diseases in the earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective. Often, serious conditions like high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart disease don’t cause noticeable symptoms until it’s in the advanced stages.
By scheduling a wellness checkup each year, you also build a strong foundation for your preventive health. The providers can recommend strategies you can incorporate into your daily life to optimize your overall wellness and vitality.
During your annual checkup at HealthyU Clinics, the providers review your personal and family medical histories and learn more about any concerns you have about your health. They complete a physical exam to check your muscle and joint health, lung function, heart rate, and other vital signs.
The providers may also order blood work or other lab tests to get a better understanding of your overall health. They can recommend additional preventive screenings based on your health needs and family history. The providers may also refer you to other medical professionals for specialized screenings, like mammograms and colonoscopies.
Your annual checkup is also the ideal time to get updates on vaccines that protect against contagious diseases like measles, polio, and the seasonal flu.
Based on the results of your evaluation, the HealthyU Clinics physicians can discuss strategies you can use to optimize your wellness and quality of life. They may suggest diet changes, lifestyle improvements, exercise programs, and stress-reduction techniques that support your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
