Prompt Camp Physicals in Glastonbury, CT
Most summer camps require attendees receive a physical examination beforehand, in order to ensure they are healthy enough to participate in their activities. Physicals also help to identify underlying conditions or recent injuries so that camp leaders know how to accommodate these children throughout the day. For example, a child with asthma may need to have an inhaler on hand while one who is recovering from a broken ankle may need to sit out from certain activities. PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury, Connecticut, can provide the camp physical you need from an experienced provider.
What Does a Camp Physical Entail?
During the examination, the medical provider will review the child’s medical history and family history. Then, height, weight, and vitals will be recorded before the provider moves on to the physical portion of the exam, which involves conducting a vision screening and checking out the child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, throat, and major joints. At the end of the exam, the provider will have a good understanding of the child’s overall health in order to sign off on the camp physical authorization form.
