Your health and wellness partner for extensive care.
Physical wellness is as important to children as it is to adults. Children are highly energetic and need activities to utilize their energy, being physically active can be a good way to maintain physical well-being and mental health.
A sports and camp physical examination is a check-up that assesses your adolescent or teen’s health and fitness. The goal is to determine if your child has any health issues that could pose a problem if they play sports.
Family Urgent Care provides a full body examination of your child by our professional staff. We carry out all the necessary physical tests for your child‘s health. It just feels like a routine check-up, but the check-up is quite intense this time.
What happens during a sports physical?
During the sports and camp physical, the medical examiner will ask about your child’s medical history and general health, including previous hospitalizations, injuries, or illnesses that might make it unsafe for your child or teen to participate in sports or other activities in school.
The child will have to get the following things examined:
Heart and lungs
Ears, nose, and throat
Height and weight
Joint flexibility, posture, and spinal alignment
Reflexes, coordination, and strength
Are School, camp, and sports physicals required?
Some schools and states won’t let children or teens play sports without having a sports physical. Some summer camps require sports physicals, as well. It’s an excellent idea for every adolescent or teen who plays sports or attends camp to get a physical examination done annually even if the school or camp doesn’t require it. This can ensure that your child has no medical issues that could make playing sports unsafe, such as undiagnosed heart conditions or asthma.
We ask you to fill out a questionnaire based on your child’s age, height, and gender. We also examine the patient’s personal history, as well. Some questions we ask include:
Those related to their personal medical history, especially regarding disease
Family health problems
We evaluate their impulses, flexibility, and joints, evaluating their physical fitness and health
We examine their heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature
We assess their body's organs, like their heart, lungs, eyes, nose, and ears
