Why Is a Sports Physical so Important?
Are you looking for “sports physicals near me” in the Maryland area? There are a number of reasons why getting a sports physical is so important—and why they are often required by the state.
What Happens During a Sports Physical?
When you get a sports physical in Montgomery County, your doctor will do the following:
Following the examination, the doctor will either sign the OK for participating in sports or request a follow-up exam, additional testing, or specific treatment for a medical problem.
Do I Still Have to Get a Regular Check-Up?
An annual check-up, or medical physical, is still recommended—even if you have a sports physical done before starting a new activity. This is because a sports physical is different than a standard one. The sports physical focuses on your well-being as it relates to playing a sport. It’s more limited than a regular physical, but it’s a lot more specific about athletic issues.
During a regular physical, however, your doctor will address your overall well-being, which may include things that are unrelated to sports.
Thankfully, when you choose Fast Track Urgent Care, you can come in for your sports physical and your annual check-up whenever you have time. We are a walk-in clinic, so all of your medical issues are taken care of immediately on your time.
