About Sport Physical

The sports physical exam helps determine whether it's safe for kids to participate in a certain sport. The two main parts to a sports physical are the medical history and the physical exam.

Medical History

This part of the exam includes questions about:

• serious illnesses among family members

• illnesses that kids had when they were younger or may have now, such as asthma,

diabetes, or epilepsy

• previous hospitalizations or surgeries

• allergies (to insect bites, for example)

• past injuries (including concussions, sprains, or bone fractures)

• whether the child has ever passed out, felt dizzy, had chest pain, or had trouble

breathing during exercise

• any medications taken (including over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements,

and prescription medications)

Physical Examination

During the physical part of the exam, the doctor will:

• record height and weight

• take a blood pressure and pulse (heart rate, rhythm, & respirations).

• test your child's vision

• check the heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat

• evaluate your child's posture, joints, strength, and flexibility

• select orthopedic and neurological exams

Exams are approximately 30 minutes long.
