When was your last full physical exam? Years? Decades?
It has become less common of a practice. Often the intake includes a focused physical exam, but a full physical is a valuable tool that can teach both the doctor and patient about the patient's health- and often picks up something that has gone unnoticed.
A full physical includes all the body systems, inside and out, top to bottom and orthopaedic tests to screen for any musculoskeletal problems.
