Sports Physicals are extremely important when your child is about to embark on the adventure of team, school, or community sports. A physical will help ensure that your child is physically capable of meeting the expectations that will be required of them in the sport they choose to play. Without a physical, your child could run the risk of having a medical issue such as fractures and lung functioning issues like asthma. If your child has suffered a concussion in the past from a sports injury, it is crucial to see if their cognitive functioning is meeting the needs to play the next sport. Without this physical, your child could exasperate a condition even further. This can cause more significant medical concerns for your child. Ultimately, the sports physical is to keep your child safe.
The frequency of your sports physical will depend on the organization, school, and type of sport you or your child wish to participate. Typically, every new season of the sport will require a new physical. This is especially true with children in sports. They are still in the growing stages, and it is vital to keep up with the growth of a child and their ability to physically participate. It is always important to check with the organization to make sure you are meeting their expectations of having a physical and in what timeframe a new one is needed.
Typically, insurances do not cover a sports physical. However, most insurances will include an annual checkup for children and adults. This yearly check-up will meet most requirements for a sports physical. And if you or your child are participating in several activities and sports that require a physical, one physical performed by our provider can be used to fill out multiple physical forms. For example, if in the summer, you plan to play on the community soccer and baseball team, you can bring both physical forms with you. Our provider will perform one sports physical for both sports — no need to make two separate appointments.
Call into our clinic, and we can set you up with an appointment. Also, we take your walk-in appointment for those who need one today. Just make sure to bring all the necessary paperwork from your child’s school or your organization so the doctor can fill it out.
If insurance is not an option, typically sports physicals cost on average $65. Call our clinic, and we will be able to give you more details about our services after we discuss your needs.
