AFC Urgent Care & Walk-in Clinic in West Chester, PA, offers sports physical exams for summer camps and sports teams
It does not matter if it is the summer or the school year; the schedules of parents and children are usually busy. If you or your child participate in organized sports or go to summer camps, you will need a sports physical. It can be challenging to schedule this simple examination with your regular doctor without having to take a day off of work. Often you have to plan these appointments months in advance. Skip the hassle and make the process easier with a visit to AFC Urgent Care West Chester for your Sports Physical. We will complete all forms after your thorough examination without an appointment to receive a sports physical at our urgent care center. We can, if requested, forward the results of your physical to your regular doctor to update their records.
A physical before competitive sports is crucial to keeping healthy throughout the year, especially for children. In many cases, you will only be allowed to participate in organized sports if you pass a sports physical. Our board-certified doctors will ensure you or your child’s bodies and joints can handle the activities related to the sport they are playing or the camp they are attending. Our providers will ensure you can handle hours of stretching, bending, and running without any health concerns. Catching a problem early allows us to address them and prevent severe injuries before they happen. Although generally required, getting a sports physical every year is a good idea.
What are some things your doctors will review at AFC Urgent Care West Chester during a sports physical?
Depending on the nature of the activity, some of the things our doctors will review include:
Our providers will review your or your child’s medical history to review any previous health issues or diseases. If there is documentation regarding any past medical concerns, please bring it to our clinic so our doctor can review it as part of the physical process. It will only help them give a more thorough examination. Details regarding past injuries, allergies, or current medications are also helpful
Our providers will record your or your child’s blood pressure, weight, heart function, and pulse during the physical examination. Depending on the activity, they will also test your flexibility and joints. This part of the examination ensures your or your child’s health is prepared for vigorous physical activities and exercise. These things will all be recorded to be compared later in future physicals to ensure no concerning changes.
