Sports and Camp Physicals

Fast, affordable sports and camp physicals. 

Most camps, athletic leagues and schools require a pre-participation physical examination (PPE), and it’s clear to see why. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, more than 3.5 million children under 15 get hurt playing sports or participating in recreational activities every year. Sports and camp physicals can help kids discover and manage health problems that may interfere with their participation, as well as reduce their overall risk of injury. Don’t skip this important annual check-up on developmental health.

During a sports and camp physical exam, a medical provider will:

  • Record height and weight
  • Check blood pressure and pulse
  • Test vision
  • Check the heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat
  • Evaluate posture, joints, strength, and flexibility

The provider will review the child’s medical history and offer helpful tips on topics such as concussion, heat exhaustion, fainting, asthma, and injury prevention. The exam also provides an opportunity to discuss the effects of using drugs, alcohol, and supplements.

To prepare for the exam, make sure to bring any required participation forms for the provider to sign. If your child wears glasses or contacts, you’ll want to bring those too.

In some cases, your child may need a follow-up exam, additional tests, or further treatment before the provider can sign off on participation. Allow time for this possibility, and hurry in for your child’s sports and camp physical!
