What are sports physicals? And what are school physicals?
Sometimes a physical exam is necessary when an adult or child joins a new sports team, and sometimes an exam is necessary when someone is attending a new school. It’s often a pre-entry requirement. A sports or school physical is very similar to a standard physical exam, so the physician will likely check your:
- Family health history and personal health history for recurring health conditions
- Vitals, including your heart rate, blood pressure, and weight
- Body health, including your eyes, ears, nose, heart, lungs, skin, speech, and walking ability
- Vaccination history, and offer any vaccinations you need
During a sports physical, the physician also will check your physical strength, motor functions, reflexes, and agility. For a school physical for a child, the physician will check your child’s development. Additionally, the physician will check to see whether you or your child requires other tests, like a blood test. You’ll also have the opportunity to bring up with the physician any health concerns or questions you have.
Can urgent care do physical exams?
Yes, urgent care clinics like ours can provide physicals. Here at Eastway Medical Clinic, our physicians are fully certified to provide any type of physical exam, including school, sports, and camp physicals, and even annual physicals. Children, adults, and even seniors can get a physical with us.
One of the best things about getting a physical done at an urgent care clinic is that you can get it done right away, right on the spot, with no appointment necessary! This is especially convenient when you or your child needs a physical as soon as possible, or if you don’t have a referral form handy.
How much does a physical exam typically cost?
Typically, a physical exam costs 50 to 200 dollars before insurance coverage is applied, but this depends on the type of physical and the provider. Children’s physicals are usually on the lower end of the spectrum. With Eastway Medical Clinic, our pricing varies, so please get in touch with us to learn more about our services and pricing.
