Physical Exams: Get Your Child Ready for School Sports

Before you know it, school will be back in session. If your child is actively involved in extracurricular activities at school, then they will most likely need to pass a physical exam.

A school physical exam is used to ensure your child is healthy enough for strenuous or semi-strenuous activity. This helps physicians catch any problems that may become problematic or that need to be addressed immediately or in the near future, like a hernia.

The physicians at Medinet Family Care Clinic in southwest Houston have been performing physical exams and health checks for decades and can perform these necessary examinations for your child quickly and efficiently.

DOES YOUR CHILD NEED A HEALTH PHYSICAL?

If your child has not yet received a physical examination, then you should consider scheduling one for them soon before their school activity begins for the year. Taking care of this sooner rather than later ensures that your child won’t miss out on any activities they want to be involved in. Also, taking care of this during early July ensures you and your child won’t be scrambling to get the physical completed or stuck in a line with other parents and their children.

WHAT DOES A PHYSICAL EXAM DO?

A physical exam is a necessary and straightforward examination of a patient’s overall health. Here are some of the aspects of the examination:

Simply conducting a thorough non-invasive examination can bring to light many health issues. Checking the look of the skin or even the clarity of the eyes can bring certain health issues to our doctors’ attention. Conducting a simply respiratory can ensure the lungs are in good working condition. This is very important, especially for kids who play sports.
