Back to School, Back to the Doctor!

Whatever grade your child is in, there is always the yearly back-to-school to do list:

Shopping for school supplies

Filling out permission forms

Scheduling your child’s annual family physician visit…

Okay, it may not seem so urgent, but an annual physical exam by your family doctor is an important part of your child’s health care. Back-to-school is the perfect time to schedule a physical with one of our many doctors here at Wheat City Medical in Brandon, MB.

The Need for a Thorough Physical Exam 

Back-to-school check-ups, as they are commonly called, are often the only visit most kids and teenagers have with their physician all year. The annual physical gives parents a chance to give the child a thorough physical exam. It can also be a good opportunity for doctors to address typical adolescent issues:

Drinking

Smoking

Drugs

Sexual activity

Depression

If your child is involved in school athletic program, a check up can address any potential issues or lingering injuries well before the start of the new sports season.
