Essentially, the purpose of this exam is to determine whether your body is in good condition to safely participate in your chosen sports program. Usually, your team will require that you get a physical before you play. Even if it is not required, the doctors at Complete Care Center still recommend you get a physical to assess and monitor your physical fitness.
The goal of the physical exam is to evaluate the athlete for any musculoskeletal issues, such as problems with posture, gait, limb function, and range of motion. Your doctor will also assess the functioning of your heart and lungs, obtain vital signs, vision check and examine your body for any injuries or abnormalities. The sports physical can help your doctor identify any medical conditions that may interfere with athletic performance. Other questions included:
A sport’s physical is not utilized as a comprehensive annual exam that would be expected for insurance purposes. If there is a problem, your Complete Care Center physician will refer you to your own primary care provider or schedule additional tests at your request.
Sport’s physicals are open to Grand Blanc and all other school districts. Minor’s must be accompanied by a parent or have the parent complete the Minor Medical Treatment Authorization form and fax or send it in with the minor accompanied by another adult. Complete Care Center recommends scheduling or walking in for your sports physical as early as possible prior to the start of your sport in order to prevent lengthy wait times.
Remember to practice hard and do well in school!
