Sports Physicals, What You Need to Know

Beware of Counterfeit Physicals. Many of our patients need physical exams for sports. Did you know this is part of the service we provide with your insurance-paid physical exam? A real sports physical is not a cash-deal in the parking lot of the school; instead, it includes review of vaccines, past medical history,a thorough exam of the joints, and if the age is appropriate, sometimes a hernia test. Vaccines, Asthma management, concussion history and prior accidents are also important to review.
