Many school districts require their enrolled students to have a basic physical exam before they attend any classes. A school physical provides an opportunity to have your child’s health and development checked by a medical professional, and also confirm that his or her immunizations are up to date.
School physicals can vary based on a child’s age, but in general, a provider at Medella Urgent Care will:
- Review your child’s health history
- Measure your child’s blood pressure, pulse, height, and weight
- Evaluate your child’s heart, lungs, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
- Assess your child’s vision, joints, and muscles
A pre-participation sports physical is similar to a school physical but focuses on an athlete’s health as it relates to specific athletic activities. The goal is to identify any issues that could increase your child’s risk of injury or otherwise affect his or her ability to safely participate in a given sport.
When you bring your child to Medella Urgent Care for a school or sports physical, be sure to have on hand any forms that must be completed and submitted to the school or athletic organization, along with your child’s eyeglasses and/or contact lenses and a list of his or her medications.
The experienced and friendly health care professionals at Medella Urgent Care will help ensure that your child is ready and able to take on a new sporting opportunity or school year.
