If you have school-age children, you are probably already thinking about what needs to be done before the next school year starts in just a few weeks. For many, one of the things on your list is a back-to-school sports physical.
This year, make the healthy choice and upgrade that sports physical to a more thorough and complete well-child exam.
What’s the difference?
A well-child exam is an annual check-in with a doctor or provider who knows your child well and can monitor what is happening with your child’s emotional, physical and mental development.
A well-child exam involves a comprehensive check of every body system followed by customized education on lifestyle, safety, nutrition and exercise appropriate for your particular child’s stage of development and current health.
This more complete exam provides a full picture of your child’s overall health and provides clues to anything that may need to be changed now, while it’s still early, rather than allowing potential problems to get worse if left unchecked.
And the best part? Most insurances cover an annual well-child check, so there is no out-of-pocket cost to you.
Unfortunately, the fast and cheap sports physical is usually fast and cheap.
If you can do the right thing for your child with just a little more effort and no extra cost, why wouldn’t you?
