What a sports physical includes
Physicians will check your athlete’s vitals, joints, and flexibility. They’ll also check your athlete’s vision and do a short fitness assessment to diagnose and recommend any possible limitations on physical activity.
It’s not necessary for you to bring a vaccination record with you to receive a physical at IMC Immediate Medical Care. However, please be aware that some states require your child’s immunization record before he or she can begin a new sport.
We’ll check your child’s pulse and blood pressure to ensure proper vitals. We’ll also document his or her weight and height, since growth spurts and weight changes can place added stress on joints, muscles, and bones.
An eye exam checks for proper vision and evaluates whether your child needs prescription lenses or if his or her current prescription needs to be adjusted.
Medical history review
A medical history is just as important as a medical examination. Knowing about any past illnesses, surgeries, or conditions, such as asthma or chest pains, will help diagnose problems and prevent complications in the future.
