Our Sports Physical Examinations
What is a sports physical? It’s an examination to determine if a child is healthy enough to participate in a sport. The physical begins by collecting your child’s family and medical history to learn if they have any underlying conditions or are prone to injuries that may interfere with their physical activity. If so, the practitioner can develop a plan to ensure they can still play the sport as healthily as possible. For example, a soccer player prone to shin splints may be given specific exercises to do before and after practice and games to prevent injury.
A sports physical will also involve evaluating your child’s:
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure, pulse, and other vitals
- Ears, nose, and throat
- Lungs and abdomen
- Joints, strength, and flexibility
