To make sure an athlete can begin competing, many schools require sports physicals, also called pre-participation exams (PPE). Sports physicals consist of medical history and physical exams to make sure that the athlete is healthy enough to participate. The physical is designed to identify any high-risk disorder or condition, existing injury or potential problems to avoid future problems or rehabilitate an existing injury.
Our physicians are capable of performing the exam. In some cases, the school will set aside time for doctors to conduct sports physicals on-site.
