Football Season Is Here! Is Your Child Healthy Enough?

The high school football season has arrived. Kids are starting to practice in the heat for summer drills, but is your child ready for the demands of football season? For any student to play sports or be involved in extracurricular activities, they must undergo a physical. At Medinet Family Care Clinic, our physicians conduct physical examinations for patients of all ages.

Football is a very rough sport, and may be the roughest in the nation. This is why getting a physical exam is absolutely necessary for students. It must be confirmed that their body is ready for such activity. Through this checkup, our doctors check to make certain the heart, the lungs, and other areas of the internal and external portions of the body are healthy and in proper working order.

PHYSICAL EXAMS ARE NEEDED FOR EVERY SPORT

Student-athletes must receive a physical examination before becoming involved in any sport at school. Whether it is football or tennis, checking to make sure there are no risks of cardiac arrest, asthma, hernias, or something else that could be detrimental to the student’s health is imperative.

When it comes to school physicals, we make certain to conduct these exams in an efficient and timely manner. If there are any problems that we cannot address, we are certain to make the appropriate recommendations to another hospital, doctor or specialist. These types of issues are typically serious and should be addressed immediately.
