No matter which sport your child plays -- whether it's soccer, football, baseball, track, or martial arts --youth need to be prepared. The potential injuries of sports can range from minor sprained ankles and repetitive strains, to more serious conditions like heat stroke or exercise-induced asthma. That preparation starts with seeing our physicians at Greenleaf Healthcare for a sports physical to make sure their bodies are ready for the season ahead.What Is a Sports Physical?
A sports physical -- also known as a pre-participation physical examination -- is a check-up to assess a youth's health and fitness as it relates to a sport. It is not the same as a regular physical. During the sports physical, the health care provider looks for any diseases or injuries that could make it unsafe to participate in sports and reviews the family's medical history to ensure additional tests are performed if necessary.
