Sports Physicals

Your source for children’s sports readiness exams.

Overview

Youth and school sports continue to gain popularity, with 45 million children participating annually in the United States. While the rise of physical activity is encouraging, safety while playing sports is paramount. Pre-participation (“sports”) physicals are required by most states to ensure readiness of kids and teens engaging in school or club sports. Our caring providers will go through a medical history and physical exam, answering any questions you have throughout the visit. Sports injuries are highly preventable, so evaluating your child’s readiness upfront with a physical can help.
