We all love high school sports. In just over a month, practice starts for our beloved fall sports.

High school athletes are required to complete a sports physical and have their medical provider fill out a school physical examination medical record to show they are in good health.

determine whether it’s safe for them to participate in physical activity. This physical can also identify medical conditions that may impede participation, and the successful rehabilitation of previous injuries.

Sports Physicals include: taking a brief medical history and blood pressure; and testing vision and hearing, heart, lungs, abdomen, nose, and throat. The athlete’s posture, joint strength and flexibility are also evaluated.

Castle Rock Medical Center recommends that you schedule your Well Child Exam or Sports
Physical early in the summer to avoid the last minute “back to school” rush.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There are two ways to get a child’s Sports Physical:

  1. Schedule a Well Child Exam, usually covered by insurance, and have your provider
    complete the Sports Physical paperwork at that time. (The Sports Physical is included in
    the Well Child Exam.)
  2. Schedule a Sports Physical on “Discount Tuesdays” during the months of July and August for just $25.
