What Are The Steps Of A Physical?

  • Vitals

    We'll check your child's pulse and blood pressure to ensure proper vitals. We'll also document their weight and height, as growth spurts and weight changes can place added stress on joints, muscles and bones.

  • Eye Exam

    An eye exam checks for proper vision and evaluates whether your child needs prescription lenses or if their current prescription needs to be adjusted.

  • Fitness

    Next we’ll examine your child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose and throat, checking their cardiovascular system and recommending any limitations on physical activity.

  • Joints & Flexibility

    By testing your child’s strength, flexibility, posture and joints, we can identify any areas that may be prone to injury as well as suggest potential exercises and tips to help build a healthier body.

  • Medical History

    A medical history is just as important as a medical examination. Knowing about any past illnesses, surgeries or conditions like asthma or chest pains will help diagnose problems and prevent complications in the future.

Now You're On The Team

There are plenty of physical and social benefits in having your child participate in organized sports. There’s also risks. Sports-related musculo-skeletal injuries are the most common cause of injury-related care visits. But by keeping an eye on susceptible areas, you can help keep your child in the game and off the sideline.

  • Head Injury

    Dizziness, lightheadedness, headache and confusion may be symptoms of a possible injury to the brain (Concussion).

  • Shoulder Pain

    Muscle aches may be associated with physical activity. However, when normal movement causes pain or numbness, there may be a more serious underlying cause, such as a dislocation, tear, or fracture.

  • Knee Injury

    Sudden sharp knee pain followed by swelling may be an indication of a severe injury.

  • Ankle Sprain

    Ankle injuries are the result of a sudden change in movement or direction of the foot or ankle. Sudden pain and swelling are common symptoms. X-rays can be helpful at ruling out the possibility of a fracture.

Tips For Game Time
