Most children end up playing a sport and participating in activities at some point during their time spent at school, which means you know the importance of getting a sports physical to ensure your child is in tip-top shape before they start playing.
It doesn’t matter what their sport of choice is, the risk of injury is always there. Even professional athletes must get a sports physical to ensure they are in their best physical shape to be playing their sport.
A sports physical helps identify and deal with issues that could interfere with your ability to play and enjoy your sport. This physical will help the provider to determine your health and, if necessary, adjust medications you may be taking so you will have an easier time playing the sport.
Summer is a great time to get your children in for their well visit and sports physical and avoid waiting in crowded lines. There will be no missed school days to attend appointments, and you will be ahead of the game and ready to start the school year.
