Here's Why Your Child Needs a Back-to-School Physical, Queens, New York

Before heading back to school for another year of learning, it’s important that your child receive a physical. At Medex Diagnostic and Treatment Center, offering everything from immunology to dermatology treatment in Forest Hills, NY, they’ll make sure your child is healthy and ready for the year ahead.

School physicals are important for the following reasons:

  • They’re Often Required: Often, school districts require students to get a physical before the school year begins. This is because they need to confirm that each child has received the necessary vaccinations. It’s entirely possible your child’s school requires them to see a doctor before they can return from summer break.
  • ImmunologyIt’s a Smart Time to Schedule One: Regardless of a particular school district’s requirements, it’s important for your child to get regular physicals. As they grow up, they need their health monitored by a professional who can let you know if they need treatment for illnesses children often develop at this stage. It’s better to schedule a physical during summer when your child is home instead of during the school year when it can be difficult to find the right time that fits in their schedule.
  • It May Benefit Their Academic Performance: If your child has developed an illness or chronic health condition that requires treatment, they may perform poorly in school if they don’t get the proper care. For instance, a child may suffer from a condition that requires treatment from an immunology specialist. Until they get the proper care, the illness can cause a level of discomfort that will negatively affect their academic performance. A physical will reveal if your child is in need of additional treatment.
