Hurry! Get Your Kids’ Physical Exams Before School Starts

The school year is moments away. Has your child receive their school physical yet? If not, you need to make sure they receive theirs, otherwise they won’t be able to participate in their school’s extracurricular activities.

At Medinet Family Care Clinic, our physicians have been conducting physical exams for kids over the past few decades. We want to make certain that your child is healthy and ready for sports, band, or any other strenuous activity they may be involved in at school.

PREPARING FOR SPORTS AT SCHOOL

If your child is planning to play football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, soccer, tennis, or any other sport, they have to undergo a physical examination. A physical exam checks the student’s heart rate, pulse rate, breathing, hearing, vision, and more. At our Houston medical clinic, we also check for possible hernias. Hernias are typically very painful, but if they are not addressed and the child continues to play and compete, it can be a very serious problem. Checking for problems within their body is the first step to keeping your child healthy and active.

When it comes to their internal organs, like the heart and lungs, our quick check ups will ascertain the information necessary to give them the OK to play. If they have an irregular heartbeat, this could lead to major problems, like cardiac arrest. If your child’s lungs aren’t strong enough for extreme activity, especially in the Houston, it could lead to serious injury.

Receiving this annual check up is incredibly important because it allows for our medical staff to catch any issues before they become serious. This is also important for older patients. Annual health checks allow for our physicians to make health recommendations that will enable the patient to live a healthier, and often longer life.

COME TO MEDINET BEFORE SCHOOL BEGINS

Schedule your child’s physical exam appointment today so that they will be ready for the school year and the upcoming season. Don’t let them miss one practice or game due to not having the required physical examination. Our doctors look forward to helping them get back on the field or court, and making certain they are healthy.
