What to Bring to Your Sports Physical at Our Walk-In Clinic
Whether for school or youth programs, sports physicals are intended to assess students’ overall health and specific physical abilities to make sure it’s safe for them to participate. That’s why it’s important to bring the sports physical form provided by the program coordinator when you visit our clinic. There may be specific aspects of your child’s health that we’re asked to assess that aren’t part of a typical physical exam.
Generally, however, you can expect a sports physical to include:
- A discussion of your child’s medical history and ongoing health conditions
- Height, weight, and vital signs measurements
- An assessment of your child’s body strength and flexibility
- Vision testing and possibly a hearing test
If your child wears glasses, contact lenses, or hearing aids, you should bring them with you to the exam, along with a list of any medications your child takes on a regular basis.
