Schools & Sports Physicals

A proper checkup is important to evaluate any issues your growing child may be dealing with.

A back to school physical can touch on whether a child’s vision is developing properly and address any other physical development issues that are important to a growing child.

A sports physical to make sure your athlete is okay to play is the first step in getting ready for the big game.

For children heading back to school, a proper checkup is important to evaluate any issues your growing child may be dealing with. For example, a back to school physical can touch on whether a child’s vision is developing properly and address any other physical development issues that are important to a growing child. Back to school physical exams will vary based on the child’s age, but typically the provider will:

Record your child’s height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and BMI

  • Check your child’s heart, lungs, lymph nodes, abdomen, skin, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Evaluate your child’s vision, joints, muscles, and spine
  • Discuss the medical history of your child and your family
WHAT TO BRING

You should bring your child’s immunization records and a list of any medications your child takes, including prescription medications and over-the-counter medicines.

When coming in for immunizations, please call ahead to ensure we have the vaccination your child needs. Be sure to bring a current copy of your child’s immunization record with you.

Sports Physicals

With more than 46 million kids participating in sports each year, making sure your athlete is okay to play is the first step in getting ready for the big game.

FUN FACT:  Did you know that 62 percent of all organized sports-related injuries happen during practices rather than games? Football, basketball, and soccer were found to be the top three sports where injuries occur in this manner.

  • Vitals Check: We will check your child’s pulse and blood pressure to ensure proper vitals. We will also document his or her weight and height, since growth spurts and weight changes can place added stress on joints, muscles, and bones.
  • Vision Exam: An eye exam checks for proper vision and evaluates whether your child needs prescription lenses or if his or her current prescription needs to be adjusted.
  • Fitness Assessment: We will examine your child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat. We’ll check his or her cardiovascular system and recommend any limitations on physical activity.
  • Joints and Flexibility Check: By testing your child’s strength, flexibility, posture, and joints, we can identify any areas that may be prone to injury as well as suggest potential exercises and tips to help build a healthier body.
