Identify Any Potential Medical Issues


Complete Wellness Check for School and Sports

Holistic Wellness Checks

A school physical for sports, is a medical evaluation that student-athletes undergo before participating in sports activities at school. This examination helps ensure the student’s overall health and fitness for athletic involvement and helps identify any potential medical issues that may affect their participation or put them at risk during physical activity.

What does a Physical Involve?

During a school physical for sports, a healthcare provider at 1st Step Family Wellness will typically perform the following:

  1. Medical history: The healthcare provider will ask questions about the student’s medical history, including any past injuries, surgeries, chronic conditions, allergies, and medications.
  2. Physical examination: The provider will conduct a comprehensive physical examination, assessing vital signs, cardiovascular health, lung function, musculoskeletal system, and overall physical fitness. They may check height, weight, blood pressure, vision, hearing, flexibility, and strength.
  3. Health screening: The provider may perform additional health screenings, such as evaluating the student’s posture, assessing for scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine), or conducting a neurological examination.
  4. Documentation: The healthcare provider will complete the necessary paperwork or forms required by the school or sports organization, certifying that the student has undergone the physical examination and is cleared to participate in sports activities.

It’s important to note that the requirements and specific procedures for school physicals may vary depending on the school, district, or state regulations. It’s advisable to check with the school or sports organization for any specific guidelines or forms that need to be followed.
