Preventative care is key for keeping children healthy at any age and ensuring they are ready for physical and sports activities. Annual well-child exams from kindergarten through high school are a chance to raise questions and concerns about your child’s development, behavior and general well-being.
Annual well-child exams will:
- Promote wellness and nutrition
- Track growth and development
- Detect diseases
- Keep immunizations up-to-date
- Prevent injury and future health problems
During a well-child exam, children can also receive a sports-physical, which may be required for school sports participation. Just let your doctor’s office know when you schedule an appointment that you also need a sports physical.
