Medical History Check
A comprehensive check of any past medical conditions will be reviewed by your child’s physician, and noted down in case there are any changes in your child’s medical record or health during the physical exam.
Vital signs such as blood pressure, height and weight will be taken and recorded during the physical.
Heart and Lung Exam
The tests that your child receives will vary depending on their medical needs, but it is standard to perform a check of how their heart and lungs are functioning, especially for sports physicals.
Laboratory Tests (if needed)
Children will sometimes require laboratory tests to check up on health, or further vaccinations if they do not have all the requirements to attend school.
Sports and school physicals are a great way to stay on top of your child’s health any time of the year, and we highly recommend that you and your child perform them at least once a year.
