We provide school, camp, and sports physicals for children ages 6 and up. Many children require physicals for enrollment in public or private schools, admission today or sleep-away camps, and for participation in school or club sports teams.
CAMP, SCHOOL, AND SPORTS PHYSICALS
Your child’s physical is conducted by a licensed our family practitioner and includes:
• A thorough and complete medical history
• A full physical examination of all body systems
• Education for parents and children on common signs of concussion
• Guidance on necessary immunizations
• Completion of forms needed for sports, camp, or school participation
(forms must be provided by the child’s parent or guardian)
Your child’s doctor can also provide information about what, if any, modifications should be made to their nutrition, sleep, and exercise regimens, to ensure they continue to maintain good health as they grow. For children who play sports, an annual physical is a good opportunity to discuss how to prevent and treat common sports injuries (including stretches and other warm-ups) and what healthy snacks to eat to maintain their energy during sports season. Your child’s doctor can provide guidance on these and other health issues and provide recommendations for resources which can help you keep your child safe and healthy.
