As a parent, you want to do everything possible to keep your child healthy and safe. An important part of keeping your child healthy is making sure that they get checkups even when they aren’t feeling sick. These are known as well visits and can make sure that any issues your child is dealing with are caught at an early stage and that your child can stay healthy and happy. Dr. Theresa Rinker, Dr. Amanda Zinger, and our team of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners at Health Care for Children in Kansas City, MO, can explain more about well visits and why they’re so important.
The Importance of Well Visits
When your child is sick, you often wish that you could’ve done something earlier to prevent a sickness or issue from disrupting their life. When you bring your child in for a well visit with our pediatrician in Kansas City, MO, you’re increasing the chance of spotting a sickness or disease before it becomes severe. Well visits also ensure that your child is protected from certain diseases by making sure that they are up to date on their immunizations.
During a well visit, your pediatrician will make sure that your child is developing correctly and that any issues are being dealt with at an early stage. Well visits should start at birth and continue throughout your child’s life to make sure that they continue to stay healthy and that they’re ready for whatever may come their way.
Well visits can make sure that your child is able to properly participate in their favorite sport and that their risk of injury is as low as possible. Well visits also give you a space to ask any questions or voice any concerns that you may have about your child’s health.
