The purpose of a physical exam is to ensure you are in good physical health. Certain physical exams are more extensive than others. For example, a basic physical exam for an adolescent entering high school will involve a doctor checking his or her heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, breathing, body temperature, weight, tongue, and testicles. If it is a sports physical exam, the doctor may go a step further and test joints, reflexes, balance, and strength. These tests will help determine if the individual possesses the physical capability to safely play physical sports without elevated risk of injury.
