An annual exam is your most important health exam of the year. Your annual physical is a comprehensive evaluation of your whole health.
At Dynamic Health & Wellness Center, Mrs. Christensen performs many types of annual exams, including:
The annual physical is all about preventive care and keeping you as healthy as possible. Mrs. Christensen performs annual physicals for children and adults at Dynamic Health & Wellness Center.
Wellness exams are similar to annual physicals. However, the focus of a wellness exam differs based on age. For example, a pediatric wellness exam focuses on growth and development. For older adults with Medicare, the wellness exam focuses on disease prevention.
The DOT requires people who drive commercial vehicles to get a physical exam to make sure they can safely operate their vehicle. Dynamic Health & Wellness Center provides DOT exams.
Mrs. Christensen also does sports physicals. She may perform a sports exam at the same time as an annual physical.
You need annual exams because they’re the best tool you have for preventing future health problems. Your annual exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your whole health.
At Dynamic Health & Wellness Center, Mrs. Christensen takes annual exams one step further, evaluating your physical and mental well-being. She understands the strong connection between body and mind and knows the true path to wellness is when both aspects of your health are considered together.
Your annual exam also gives you and Mrs. Christensen an opportunity to get to know each other. The more comfortable you feel with your provider, the more likely you are to share your health concerns, which ultimately benefits your overall health.
The specifics of your annual exam depend on your age and health needs. However, you can expect a thorough evaluation.
Mrs. Christensen asks detailed questions about your current health concerns, medical history, and family history, and does a physical exam. She also runs lab work to assess general health and screen for diseases.
After your exam, Mrs. Christensen talks to you about your health and devises a wellness plan that focuses on keeping you healthy now and in the future.
