Often we equate school physicals with kids and adolescents, but the University setting is another place where school physicals are not only necessary, but required for enrollment. Immunizations, physical examinations, it’s important to know what’s going on with your body no matter what stage of your life you find yourself in.

People of adult age need to think about getting a physical when they consider:

  • Playing a Sport or Extracurricular Activity (NCAA, Intramural, or Company Softball)
  • Studying Abroad
  • Going to College
  • Joining a Military Branch

And More.

But Didn’t We Already Cover This Stuff in High School?

True that. But it’s important to make sure that you’re in the best of health before you ship off to college or embark on your next adventure. Life doesn’t stop, and your body doesn’t stay in one state for long.

Many folks believe that our body experiences complete cell turnover every 7 years. Of course, this is untrue, because you have neurons in your cerebral cortex that are never replaced. But it’s true that most of your cells regenerate within the span of a decade. That means your body is in a constant state of flux.

If that’s not enough reason to get a physical as an adult, then please be aware that most colleges won’t let you attend class unless you’ve taken a physical exam. With more and more folks attending college later in life, more and more adults are in need of current records of having a physical.

Adult Physicals Generally Consist of:

  • A Full Physical Examination
  • Various Lab Tests
  • Cholesterol Screening
  • Requisite Immunizations (MMR, IPV, DtaP, and More)
  • Recommendation of Any Missing Vaccinations
