What is a Sports Physical?
A sports physical is a pre-participation medical examination that’s often required by schools, camps, and athletic organizations. The purpose of the physical is to ensure an athlete is healthy enough to safely play the sport of their choice. During a sports physical, a clinician will:
- Ask questions about your child’s personal and family medical histories and current health, such as any medications they’re taking or past procedures they’ve had.
- Perform a physical examination to screen for potential medical issues and assess several important health characteristics, such as:
- Heart rate
- Blood pressure
- Lung function
Depending on your child’s age and overall health, additional services such as X-ray imaging or EKG testing may be recommended. When your child is medically cleared to play, our clinicians will sign necessary athletic participation forms.
