What Happens at a Sports Physical?

If your child is new to the world of organized athletics, you may be wondering what a sports physical is and how it differs from an annual physical. The purpose of a sports physical is to assess whether a child is healthy enough to participate in the activity in question. To make this determination, a practitioner will perform a physical examination and ask some questions about the child’s medical and family histories. The physical examination usually involves assessing a child’s:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Vitals (such as blood pressure and pulse)
  • Vision
  • Ears, nose, and throat
  • Lungs and abdomen
  • Strength, flexibility, and joints

A sports physical is not as comprehensive as an annual physical, which also takes into account a child’s developmental, emotional, and social health.

How Much Does a Sports Physical Cost?

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we charge an $80 flat fee for school, sports, and camp physicals. Unfortunately, this amount likely won’t be covered by insurance, since most carriers tend to cover only one physical examination each year (your child’s annual physical).

No Appointment Needed

When you choose PhysicianOne Urgent Care for your child’s sports physical, you won’t need to worry about making an appointment ahead of time. All of our youth physicals are available on a walk-in basis for our patients’ convenience. Stop into our Ridgefield urgent care center whenever we’re open—we’re located at 10 South Street, off Danbury Road—and be sure to bring your child’s sports physical form along with a copy of their most recent immunization record, your driver’s license, and your insurance card (if applicable).

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."

Somers, NY
