According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 38 million children and adolescents participate in organized sports in the United States each year. While there are numerous physical and social benefits to participation in sporting events, there is also the risk of having a sports-related injury.
Sport Physicals may be required for school related athletics as well as club sports.

Whether taken during or before the school year, physicals allow primary care physicians to tackle any medical ailments or potential illnesses. Due to the close proximity of students and teachers at school, children are always susceptible to illnesses, germs, and other health related issues. Even with proper nutrition, activity, and regular vitamins, it’s simply not enough to secure proper health and well-being. Scheduling a school physical is simply the best way to ensure your child’s health, while helping him or her perform at their best both physically and mentally.
