Many school systems require pre-participation sports physicals to make sure there are no underlying health conditions that might put a child at risk of a serious health condition while participating in their chosen sport. Sports physicals are similar to routine physicals and involve reviewing family health history and a physical exam to make sure posture, joints, strength, and flexibility are within normal ranges. During the sports physical, the physician will record measurements such as height and weight, blood pressure and pulse, as well as checking the heart, abdomen, ears, nose, lungs, and throat.

Limited walk-in appointments are available and insurance is not required. The cost for these sports physicals is $20 and ages 12 and up are welcome. If a child is under the age of 18, a parent/guardian must be present. Because of COVID-19 visitor restrictions, only parents or guardians may accompany the patient. To schedule an appointment, please call (603) 742-2007 and select Option 1.
