Sports & Spring Physicals
The unofficial beginning of the athletic season starts in spring, and there is no better time to make an appointment with a provider for your spring and sports physicals! Every parent wants their children to be safe and preparing with a sports physical is a great step. High school and college student-athletes alike can benefit from these yearly exams.
A sports physical will include:
If possible, gathering information on your student's personal health history and family history can save time and give the provider a better indication of your student's overall health.
Sports Physical Form
You can download and print the Iowa Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination form before your student's appointment to save time at the clinic.
Your student does not need to worry about getting a sports physical. It's a very simple process and only includes a physical examination and some questions. After a complete evaluation of your student, a provider will determine if they are healthy enough to participate in their selected sports.
The athletic season is not only a good time for student-athletes to get their sports physicals, but it's also a great time for adults, too! Any adult who participates in fitness-related hobbies like club sports, intramural sports, fun runs, endurance runs, or other physical activities can benefit from a yearly physical.
