Sports Physical Exam
It’s really exciting for people to get involved in a sport that they enjoy and are passionate about. Although one thing that’s easy to overlook when you’re getting setup for a sport is the sports physical process. A sports physical exam may not be the most exciting part of participating in a sport, but it’s still an important part.
By participating in a sports physical, you are essentially taking part in a regular doctor’s checkup for general health and wellness. This benefits you in two different ways. For one, your sports organization or leader gets the reassurance that you are in good health and that you’re physically capable of participating in the sport. And two, you’ll get a general overview of your current health status. This gives you additional knowledge about how well you are in shape and can identify any potential problem areas that you may not be aware of.
What do I need to know about my sports physical?
You will need to bring any required form (e.g., complete history of personal and family health, immunizations, etc.). We recommend that you give us a call at NCHS to learn more about the documentation that will be required for your sports physical, which will make the overall process much smoother and quicker.
Do I need to schedule an appointment for a sports physical?
Walk in physicals are available to existing and future NCHS patients, making it easier than ever to get the sports physical you need. This makes it convenient for people who participate in sports but may have forgotten about the requirement of a sports physical. Just remember to bring the required documentation to your visit.
What can I expect during my sports physical visit?
Visiting your healthcare provider for a sports physical will involve a discussion with the doctor about your medical history, vaccinations, and will follow up with a basic physical exam. This exam is simple and is designed to assess your ability to participate in the sport of choice. Other tests may be conducted based on the results or your medical history to rule out complications that may arise during your participation in the sport.
At the end of your exam, you’ll be provided with a summary of the examination and will be provided with completed paperwork that will verify your participation and approval of the sports physical.
