If you’re in the Las Vegas area and have a young one who’s a seasoned (or budding) athlete, chances are you’re going to need a school sports physical for upcoming spring, summer, and fall sports. Whether you’ve got a couple soccer players at home, a promising running-back, or the head cheerleader, Las Vegas Urgent Care can get you the school sports physical you need – quickly.
Our school sports physicals are affordable, convenient options for high school sports, college sports, and even professional sports. Depending on what your specific school or program requires, your exam will include:
- Medical History: Our series of medical history questions might include identifying and documenting any serious illnesses you or your family have experienced, including broken bones, other injuries, hospitalizations, surgeries, genetic disease, etc. We’ll also ask how you feel when you’re physically active, including specific questions about chest pains, dizziness, losing consciousness, etc. Finally, we’ll need to know what medications you’re currently taking, or have taken in the past.
- Physical Exam: During the exam portion of the physical, we’ll check and document your height weight and other vitals including blood pressure, temperature, and pulse rate. We’ll also briefly examine your basic vision functionality, as well as check your heart, lungs, ears, nose, and throat for potential risks or problems. Finally, we’ll test your reflexes, general strength, flexibility, and posture.
Once we’ve completed both parts of your sports physical, you’ll be out of the office and on to more important things – like scoring the winning touchdown or perfecting your back bend!
Las Vegas Urgent Care is a walk-in clinic, so there’s no need to call and schedule an appointment. Just come in when it’s convenient for you and we’ll get your sports physical conducted quickly on your schedule. Our extended hours are perfect when you need appointments after school or work.
