What Should I Expect During a Sports Physical?
Sports physicals vary according to factors like the patient’s age, overall health, and preferred sport. In general, though, here’s what you can expect:
- A review of personal medical history
- Questions regarding current medications and lifestyle habits, such as alcohol and supplement use
- A brief physical exam, which will evaluate height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, reflexes, lung function, joints, and other important health characteristics
- Clinical lab testing or digital X-ray imaging, if necessary
Our practitioners can also provide advice regarding how you can help prevent sports injuries and ways to maximize athletic performance. Following the sports physical, we’ll sign off on any necessary paperwork or recommend follow-up care, such as treatment for a medical problem or additional lab testing.
