What to Expect When Your Child Gets a Sports Physical at Springfield Urgent Care
When you choose us to provide a sports physical for your child or teen, you can expect to experience a short wait time in our clean, welcoming reception area. After that, a highly qualified and certified medical practitioner will perform a physical exam aimed at assessing your child’s ability to participate in the sports or school program that she or he is interested in. This means you’ll want to be prepared to discuss your child’s medical history, including any medications that are taken regularly. Most sports physicals also include a vision test, so if your child wears glasses or contact lenses, make sure to bring them with you.
It’s important to bring the specific questionnaire provided by the school, camp, or sports program director. Generally, the medical practitioner conducting the sports physical will evaluate your youngster’s overall health as well as screen for conditions that could affect your youngster’s ability to participate safely in the chosen activity. These conditions include:
- High blood pressure
- Bone or joint injuries
- Heart problems
After the exam, your doctor or certified medical practitioner will provide you with a signed sports physical form indicating whether it’s safe for your child to participate, either fully or with some precautionary measures.
