School Physicals

Before your child returns to school, a physical should be performed to ensure they are in good health. School physicals are a great way to monitor your child’s growth and health, and they may be required for your child to return to school or participate in certain activities. At Primary Care Joliet, we are your source for all types of physicals for you and your family at our locations in Joliet and Wilmington, IL.

For many children, back-to-school physicals may be the only time each year they visit a doctor for a wellness visit. These appointments are a great opportunity to record their weight, height and other metrics, but they are also a chance for preventive medical care. Children can have their basic eyesight, reflexes, hearing and other senses checked to ensure they are maturing as expected. Vaccination records may be updated, and children may receive other vaccinations to help protect them from contagious viruses and other illnesses.

Back-to-School Exams

Some schools may require physicals for students entering their system at certain ages. If your child is starting school this fall or changing to a new school, it is important to check if they will need a school physical before they begin. There may be forms that need to be completed by a medical professional indicating that your child has passed their physical or if your child has any physical special needs. If they are going to participate in sports or other activities, this physical can include the metrics needed for sports physicals.

At Primary Care Joliet, we have multiple clinics in the Wilmington and Joliet area to serve your family. If any of your children need school or sports physicals, we can often see you the same day or schedule your appointment for a time convenient for you. We accept many different forms of insurance to minimize the cost of your visit.

Do not wait until the last minute to get your child’s school physical. Give our team a call at Primary Care Joliet to schedule your child’s school physical at one of our locations near you.
