What is a sports physical?
Sports physicals are also known as pre-participation physicals. Conducting a sports physical is a great way to make sure that an athlete can safely physically play in a sport. Even if the state you live in or school that you go to doesn’t require one, a sports physical can also help to keep vaccinations up-to-date and also provide an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor or physician.
What should I know before my sports physical?
“Contact SmartClinic today to find out if a sports physical is right for you or your child. We typically provide this service to patients who are 18 months and older. Insurance is not usually accepted for sports physicals and any payment is due at the time of visit. Be sure to bring any required forms with you to your visit to SmartClinic, including a completed health and vaccination/immunization history.
If the athlete happens to have a medical history of any type of heart problem, heart condition, episodes or events related to their heart condition, our medical facility requires you to bring documentation from the athlete’s primary care physician or the treating physician. They must state that the condition has been evaluated and that it will not prevent or effect participation in sports.A sports physical should not replace a routine annual wellness physical.
