During your child’s physical, one of our providers will check their heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, abdomen, reflexes, ears, nose, and throat and ask questions about their eating and exercise regimens.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my child’s school require a sports physical?
Many school districts require student-athletes to complete a sports physical before starting a new season. This sports physical is a type of physical exam that ensures your son or daughter is healthy enough to participate in sports. During a sports physical, our providers can also provide tips and insights on preventing sports-related injuries.
How often should my child have a physical exam?
No two children are identical, but we usually recommend an annual physical to check for potential health problems or risks. We can also update your child’s immunizations and prescription(s) at their yearly physical if needed.
