The weather is warming up which means it is time for spring and summer physicals! For many kids under 18 years old, physicals performed by a doctor or other licensed healthcare provider are required for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to: enrolling in a new school system, attending camp, participating in classroom or after-school physical activities, or trying out for, as well as participating in, after-school athletic teams and individual programs. Don’t wait until the last minute to get these done!
Why Visit Carolina Convenient Care for School, Camp, and Sports Physicals?
In addition to being a requirement for school and sports programs, seeing our medical team at Carolina Convenient Care for physicals are an ideal chance to discuss health issues that pertain to children and their parents or guardians. Our initial exam is designed to ensure your child is healthy and physically prepared to participate in activities, but we are also happy to discuss any overall or specific concerns you have and refer to you local primary care providers or specialists who are able to provide routine patient care services.
Our nurse practitioner or medical doctor will take the time to:
- Review your child’s individual medical history, as provided
- Conduct an in-person physical examination
- Provide you with information on how to spot signs of concussion (especially important for those wishing to participate in school-sponsored sports activities
- Compile a summary of the examination for use by your primary care provider
Additionally, we’ll gladly help you complete any forms necessary for camp, school activities, or sporting tryouts/team participation that are provided at the time of the visit by the parent or guardian.
