Metro Urgent Care physical exams provide you with the information you need to establish proper eating habits, exercise routines, medicines and supplement use, and to allow you to make informed lifestyle choices about recreational and work activities.
People are different and their bodies work differently. Often it is very subtle but a deviation from what is normal for you may appear normal to a doctor who doesn’t know you. Some people have naturally lower body temperatures, occasionally as low 95 (35 C) degrees, so a temperature of 98.6 (37 C) that appears normal without an established baseline body temperature, derived through regular physicals, can leave an illness untreated.
Most health care providers consider 100.4 (38 C) as the point where a fever becomes significant. If your normal body temperature is lower and you go to the doctor with a 99 (37.2 C) degree fever, your doctor may not think much of it but you could be suffering significantly. By establishing a baseline, you will know if something below 100.4 (38 C) is reason to be concerned and you can make a point of getting attention when the fever is just 100 (37.7 C), well below what would normally be considered significant.
Medical baselines should be established in many more areas than just body temperature. Metro Urgent Care can help set the personalized standards for you that will allow the doctor to set a red flag at the appropriate point in a blood test or other procedure to ensure you receive the early intervention necessary to prevent major problems from developing.
Metro Urgent Care physicals help you to stay informed about the state of your body by providing you with certain detailed, customized metrics. Our Primary Care Physicians can order the appropriate tests from our in-house lab and x-ray unit.

Getting a sports physical is more than simply meeting requirements set by your school or the sports organization. A thorough sports physical can provide you with information on the state of your health, medical professionals can recommend warm-up exercises and how to care for your body to get the best performance, and to make sure you are keeping an eye on sports-related conditions that may come up in the future.
