Here's Why It's Important to Get an Annual Physical

When it comes to our attitudes toward medical care, we often disregard preventive care. We just don’t think it’s that important or even that it provides much benefit. As a result, most of us don’t realize how important it is to get an annual physical. 

At Synergy Health, we understand that preventive care is critical to our patients’ health and well-being. Our physicians compiled this helpful guide on the importance of getting your annual physical and why primary care matters. 

Annual physicals detect problems early

Regardless of your age, you could be developing health problems. When it comes to preventing and avoiding these health risks, early detection is key. There are different health problems that annual physicals can detect early, with tests like:

When you come in for your physical, we check to make sure all of your immunizations are up to date. Immunizations are important for children, but also for adults, as they help protect you from diseases like shingles, hepatitis, pneumonia, and the flu, among others. 

The importance of a primary care provider

The time to find a personal physician is not after you’re already sick. Getting established with one of our primary care providers ensures that you have someone to manage your overall health. We keep a detailed record of your medical and family history, medications, and an overall picture of your whole-body health. As your primary care provider, we’re responsible for seeing you for your yearly exam and providing preventive care to detect any developing health conditions. 

At Synergy Health we understand the importance of preventive and primary care for your wellness. We look at you as a whole person, rather than just a group of symptoms. We take your individual needs into account, using our expertise to tailor an individual health plan just for you.
