The Provider to Choose for Sports Physicals in Medford, MA

Picture of a child kicking a soccer ball with other children in orange jerseys in the background.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.

"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."
