What Happens During a Kid’s Sports Physical?
Sports physicals are required by most schools and athletic organizations to help ensure children and teenagers can safely participate in their favorite sports. During a sports physical, a clinician will:
- Gather information about the patient’s medical history and family medical history
- Take note of the patient’s height, weight, and basic vitals
- Examine key health characteristics, such as vision, reflexes, and joint strength
- Perform a brief physical exam to check for conditions that could impact the patient’s ability to safely participate in sports
Once the physical is complete, the clinician will sign any necessary athletic participation forms or recommend follow-up care, such as X-ray imaging or further evaluation from a pediatrician, orthopedist, or another specialist.
