When your child is getting ready for the upcoming sports season with strength training and conditioning, make sure they also have a sports physical with their primary care provider at Riverview Health Physicians. Sports physicals help address any health concerns or conditions before your student athlete steps onto the playing field, potentially catching any issues before they happen. Plus, all high school athletes in Indiana are required to have a physical prior to participating in school-related sports.
Our doctors will also take into account any medications (either over-the-counter or prescribed) that your child may be taking, as well as your family health history.
Student-athletes should ideally have a sports physical 6-8 weeks before the start of their athletic season. This gives our doctors enough time to treat any conditions your child has before he or she heads out on the court or field. Additional testing—such as X-rays or blood tests—may be ordered, depending on the outcome of the sports physical.
Whether your child is getting ready for his or her first or fifth season on the athletic field, ensure they’re in the best possible health by getting a sports physical from your doctor at Riverview Health Physicians. Request an appointment with a primary care physician by calling 317.565.0505 or by completing our online appointment request form.
