Book An Appointment

Preparing for a sports season involves more than training and practice; it also requires ensuring athletes are physically capable of meeting the demands of their sports. Our clinic in Rolling Meadows offers thorough sports physicals designed to evaluate the health and fitness levels of athletes, helping to prevent injuries and ensure a safe sports experience.

Importance of Sports Physicals

Sports physicals, also known as pre-participation physical examinations (PPE), are crucial for detecting any conditions that might restrict participation or increase the risk of injury during sports activities. These exams provide an opportunity to assess the overall health and fitness levels of participants and offer valuable advice on safe exercise practices and injury prevention.

What to Expect During Your Sports Physical

Medical History Review:

The physical begins with a comprehensive review of the athlete’s medical history, including any previous injuries, surgeries, or ongoing treatments. This helps identify any conditions that could affect sports participation.

Physical Examination:

  • Vital Signs: We check blood pressure and heart rate to detect any cardiovascular concerns.
  • Vision Test: Ensuring the athlete’s vision is adequate for safety and performance in sports.
  • Fitness Assessment: Evaluating strength, flexibility, joint function, and overall physical fitness.
  • Heart Health: Listening to the heart for signs of undiagnosed heart conditions that could be triggered by intense physical activity.
  • Musculoskeletal Evaluation: Checking bone and muscle health to identify conditions like scoliosis or joint instabilities that could affect athletic performance.

The Benefits of Getting a Sports Physical

  • Safety: Identifies health conditions that might make it unsafe to participate in certain sports.
  • Performance: Offers guidance on how to improve strength, endurance, and overall athletic performance.
  • Prevention: Provides tips on injury prevention and maintaining optimal health throughout the sports season.
