Our Services Sports Physicals
Sports physicals allow a clinician to identify any conditions that might keep the athlete out of the game or affect performance. Athletes should have a sports physical six weeks before the start of the sports season, but this can vary due to changing sport seasons. This timing provides an opportunity to address an existing injury or improve conditioning prior to participation in the activity.
Every participant in a school sports team is required to complete this pre-participation physical examination. As well as meeting the eligibility requirements, there are added benefits to having a sports physical before participation:
- Help address potential health concerns proactively
- Review any medical conditions that appear in the family. Though a child may not have had symptoms for an extended period, a history of asthma may interfere with eligibility, for example.
- Evaluate pre-existing and current conditions such as allergies and injuries
- Get useful training tips
In-office services, such as sports physicals, gather information critical to correct diagnosis and the monitoring of conditions that can drastically affect your life. If we can do it in-house, your membership covers the cost. Any tests that must be sent out will receive the very best wholesale prices we can negotiate for you.
