Who should get a physical?

A routine physical can detect problems early on, while they are easily treatable. Putting off a physical can lead to serious complications, because many illnesses and diseases have no obvious symptoms and become harder to treat over time. Regular check-ups help you and your provider stay on top of your health. Catching a problem early is the easiest way to help avoid complications and can keep problems from escalating into something more serious.
