What is a complete physical?
A complete physical is your annual exam with your physician. This exam usually entails reviewing medical history, family history, basic blood tests, examining reflexes, going over medications, logging weight and height, and listening to the heart and lungs. These are just a few of the many different evaluations that can take place during your physical. Depending upon your age and lifestyle, more or less tests and procedures may be required. Generally, a physical includes a basic health risk assessment, along with any other gender specific testing.
What is a health risk assessment?
During a health risk assessment, your physician reviews your individual and family medical history and lifestyle habits. This can include diet, exercise, drinking, smoking, drugs, and sexual activity. Basically anything in your life that can impact your health. Sometimes this can even include the workplace, depending upon if you work in close proximity with hazardous materials or chemicals. Based on your answers, your doctor will provide advice or a health assessment to best suit you and offer you optimum quality of life. Similarly, if you excessively drink, smoke, or use drugs, your doctor will warn you of medical conditions that can arise from prolonged, excessive use.
