Why should my child get a sports physical?
Playing a sport puts a lot of different stresses on a body that it doesn’t typically experience day in and day out. A physical helps ensure your child’s safety to make sure there isn’t an underlying medical condition that could be aggravated by participating in a sport. Catching a medical issue now prevents them from getting into a potentially dangerous medical situation later. In many cases, a concern can be treated or mitigated to allow them to participate safely.
How often should kids get sports physicals?
Depending on the organization or sport, you may have to get a fresh physical before starting any activity and every year before the start of a season. If a sports physical is within a couple of months of a season, a single physical maybe good enough for several activities. Check with the organization to see if this is permissible. You can also bring in forms from several sports activities to be filled out in a single visit if it is possible for you to bring in that paperwork.
Does my child need a physical every year for school sports physicals?
Your child may need a yearly physical or one every two years. Check with your local school district’s sports department about these requirements.
Are sports physicals covered by insurance?
Generally, a sports physical is not covered by insurance. However, a yearly examination is usually something that insurances cover and may serve all of the requirements of a sports physical. Check with the organization to see if this would work for their needs.
