The Importance of Sports Physicals for Young Athletes
Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Fall and team sports go together like school and backpacks. Just like keeping up with immunizations, scheduling a sports physical for your young athlete is an important part of keeping kids healthy.

Each year, before jumping into competitive sports (particularly if your child is new to the sport or they are moving on to a higher level of competition or required endurance), stop in for a sports physical.

In about 30 minutes we will:

·      Review your child’s medical history

·      Discuss illness and injuries your child has had in the past and how that may affect their participation in the chosen sport

·      Measure your child’s height, weight, blood pressure

·      Check heart and lung function, and eyesight and hearing

Nearly all of our patients are given the green light to play the sports they choose. But if there is cause for concern, we can work together to develop an action plan to either get your child ready for their favorite sport or to help them choose a different sport that’s a better fit.

If your child is nervous about getting a sports physical, remind them that even professional athletes get them regularly. Everyone who plays sports—even the MVPs—need to make sure they’re in good shape for their sport.

You never need an appointment to see one of our medical professionals so stop in anytime. And, while supplies last, we’re offering a free gift with every sports physical!
