What is a wellness check at the doctor?
You can think of a wellness check as something like a standard physical exam. Just like with a physical exam, a wellness check is done annually and with a physician. Similar health-related matters are covered too. There are differences, though.
With a physical exam, a head-to-toe evaluation of your physical health is done, and you’ll have the opportunity to bring up and address any recent health issues. With a wellness exam, however, mental and emotional health are evaluated in addition to physical health, and you’ll be able to come up with or update a general health care plan with a physician. This plan can address your general health and any risk factors you have to help you prevent illnesses and manage any chronic conditions you may have, like diabetes.
Why would you get a wellness assessment?
Adults benefit from regular wellness assessments, and seniors do too. They benefit because they get a professional’s insight into their overall health, including their mental and emotional health, which are just as important as physical health. Wellness assessments are opportunities to bring up and address any issues in any of these areas and come up with a general plan for health care. This plan is so important because each patient has their own individual health needs that must be met in order for them to live a healthy, long life. Also, wellness assessments can help adults and seniors monitor and manage any chronic conditions they have.
Annual assessments (including many well-woman exams) are covered by Medicare, so there’s no reason not to get them!
What happens at a wellness checkup?
Typically, a wellness checkup is just as easy as a physical exam. Most of the services a wellness physician will provide are preventive care and health management services. Also, for seniors, the physician will check for signs of common or chronic geriatric problems like dementia or heart conditions. During a well-woman visit, the physician will check for other problems like intimate health problems. In any type of wellness exam, a physician will usually check:
- A patient’s medical and family health history
- The patient’s height, weight, and blood pressure
- The patient’s general physical condition including the condition of their heart and lungs
- For any signs of chronic conditions or signs that an existing condition has changed
- The patient’s mental and emotional health including stress levels and social health
Also, the professional will help the patient develop their general health care plan. We provide all of these services and more here at Allegis Health Care!
