Sports Physicals

for the active teens

Many children participate in physically demanding activities like football, soccer, cross country, swimming, baseball, etc. 
Seeing your pediatrician for sports physicals helps keep your child’s medical records and health history up to date. Our pediatricians are trained to identify and treat both medical and bone/joint problems that are commonly seen in children and adolescents who play sports.

What is a sport physical?

A sports physical is a form given by the school, which you have to bring to your child’s appointment already filled. During this appointment, the doctor will examine your child entering into a sport and then sign the form. The purpose is to ensure that it is safe for the individual to participate. Usually, your kid will start getting them in seventh grade.

Why is it important?

It can help determine and deal with health problems that might interfere with your kid’s participation in a sport.
Your doctor may even have some useful training tips and give you some ideas on how to avoid injuries. The doctor also can identify risk factors that are linked to specific sports. But the ultimate goal of the sports physical is to make sure your kid is safe while playing sports.

If you are having an emergency, please call 911.
