Walk-In Sports Physicals Available at Our Urgent Care Clinic Near Hamburg, MI
When kids come home from school all excited about trying out for football, cheerleading, soccer, or another athletic program, it’s hard for most parents not to join in the enthusiasm. After all, participation in group sports offers many benefits for young people, including opportunities for exercise and socializing with peers. But if you’re a parent, you may be less enthusiastic about the sports physical required for participation. For safety reasons, children need to get a physical exam before participating in athletic activities, but many families find it difficult to get an appointment with their primary care physician, whose office likely has limited weekday hours. Fortunately for families in the Hamburg, Michigan, area, Springfield Urgent Care is here to help.

Our rates are affordable, and we also accept many health insurance plans.
How to Prepare for a Sports Physical at Our Urgent Care Clinic
If your child’s school, youth league, or camp program provided a specific form, it’s important to bring that with you when you come to our clinic for a sports physical. Although the exams needed for many youth programs are similar, there may be specific requirements for your child’s participation in a particular program. You should also be prepared to discuss your child’s medical history, including any medications your child takes, with one of our certified medical practitioners. If your child wears glasses or contact lenses, make sure you bring them when you come to our clinic for a sports physical.
Your doctor or certified physician’s assistant will conduct a physical exam designed to detect any health conditions that may affect your child’s ability to participate in the desired program. At the end of your visit, you’ll receive a signed sports physical form that indicates whether it’s safe for your child to participate with or without restrictions.
Contact Springfield Urgent Care today if you have questions about our sports physicals or any of the other services we provide for those in the Hamburg area.
