The next part is the physical exam. During this part, the team takes note of your child’s height, weight, and blood pressure. They also check their heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat, as well as posture and flexibility. Once the exam is complete, you’ll either receive the OK for your child or schedule you for a follow-up exam.
