What You Should Bring:

If your school or organization requires a specific form for the physical, please bring it with you. Otherwise, we have a standard form suitable in most cases.

The Process:

Medical History

The doctors will ask some of these questions and more:

  • Serious illnesses among other family members
  • Illnesses that you had when you were younger or may have now, such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy
  • Previous hospitalizations or surgeries
  • Allergies
  • Past injuries
  • Any medications that you are on
  • Does the athlete have asthma (wheezing), hay fever, or coughing spells after exercise?
  • Has the athlete ever stopped exercising because of dizziness or passed out during exercise?
  • Has the athlete ever suffered a heat-related illness (heat stroke)?

Physical Exam

During the physical part of the exam, the doctor will usually:

  • Record your height and weight
  • Take a blood pressure and pulse (heart rate and rhythm) reading
  • Test your vision
  • Check your heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat
  • Evaluate your posture, joints, strength, and flexibility

Why it’s important

The exam helps determine whether it’s safe for you to participate in a particular activity. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season.

Please walk in or call our office if you have any questions.
