School and Sports Physicals

Kids going to camp or registering to participate in school sports typically are required to have a physical exam and a signed release from a physician. Insurance providers typically do not cover the charge for this service. Primary care providers and urgent care centers can usually perform these evaluations quickly and for a fairly small cost.

Who needs a physical?

Kids participating in team sports or enrolling in camps.

Treatment

The typical physical exam includes a height and weight measurement, blood pressure check and a look at the eyes, ears and throat. The doctor or nurse will likely listen to the heart and lungs for healthy patterns and feel the abdomen for any abnormalities.

If there is a problem, the physician might approve the activity under certain conditions or providing certain medications continue to be taken. If there is an old injury that might affect the patient’s performance, the doctor will prescribe the best way to avoid furthering the injury.

Emergency Warning Signs: When should I see a doctor?

If the student experiences any health related issues while participating in their activity, the activity should stop and evaluation by a professional conducted before resuming play.

School and sports physicals are available now at OnPoint Urgent Care in Aurora, Highlands Ranch, or Lone Tree Colorado.
