The Provider to Choose for Sports Physicals in Medford, MA
Does your child need to undergo a physical before they can join an athletic team? If so, you won’t need to go far for the examination. Families in Medford, Massachusetts, can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for sports physicals and a wide array of other immediate care services.
What Is a Sports Physical?
Are you wondering what happens at a sports physical? If so, you’re not alone. Many parents and caregivers whose children are new to organized sports are unfamiliar with this requirement. Sports physicals aren’t as comprehensive as annual physicals and are instead focused on determining whether a child can safely participate in the sport in question. To make this assessment, we will:
- Ask about your child’s medical and family histories
- Measure your child’s height, weight, and vitals (such as pulse and blood pressure)
- Check your child’s vision, ears, nose, throat, lungs, abdomen, joints, strength, and flexibility
We may also recommend certain accommodations, such as a special inhaler, if needed. Once we’ve completed the sports physical, we’ll fill out the paperwork required by your child’s team, so be sure to bring those forms along with your child’s most recent immunization record, your driver’s license and insurance card (if applicable), and our $80 flat fee.
