Playing sports is a great way for kids to stay active, build confidence and learn to work in teams, but at MyCare, we know what’s most important – keeping kids safe.
Not only is the sports physical required by law, but it plays a crucial role in preventing dangerous sports injuries.
During the appointment, the doctor will perform a thorough physical exam, assess your child’s medical history and provide any sport-specific information and tips they need to play safely. In rare cases, issues can be identified that prevent student-athletes from participating in sports, but most concerns can be addressed so that your child can get back in the game.
During a sports physical, you will review your medical history and participate in a physical exam. The doctor will perform:
Height and weight measurements
Blood pressure screening
Examination of the heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat
Posture, joints, strength and flexibility tests
