What exactly is a sports physical?


Sports physicals, also known as pre-participation evaluations (PPE), are specialized physicals that can be done for children and teens. These physicals include specialized exams to determine your current health and the safety of your participation in sports or certain organizations that require them as well. Sports physicals also cover information besides your current health, such as any injuries you may have previously sustained and health conditions like asthma that may be affected by physical activities, and then this information can be shared with the coaches of the sports teams to make accommodations to keep the child safe and provide adequate changes to facilitate the child. Sports physicals are not meant to be used to eliminate children or teens from participating in sports; they are used to make sure that if a child has medical conditions, they are given equal opportunity while still maintaining the child’s safety during their participation in the sport or activity.

Do I need an appointment for a sports physical at urgent care?


Because sports physicals require an allotted amount of time and additional information from other healthcare providers, it can be important to make an appointment for sports physicals, as, in the case of not having all the necessary documents with you, you may have to go back for another appointment, which can be not only time-consuming but also frustrating for the patient’s parents. When considering sports physicals, clinics like Immediate Care of Oklahoma are equipped to perform the examination, but will still rely on previous medical information from the primary care physician or pediatrician that you see regularly.
 
If you know that you have all the required documentation needed for the sports physical, then our team at Immediate Care of Oklahoma will be available to assist you on a walk-in basis. We want all our patients and their families to have the most efficient and easiest time seeking the medical care they need. If you are unsure if you have all the required documents you will need, you can call us to find out what we will require from you during the sports physical.

Are there any specific medical conditions or concerns that urgent care physicians can address during sports physical exams?


Since sports physicals cover all aspects of health, we will be able to address any medical conditions or concerns you have that would be managed normally by an urgent care physician since we are an urgent care clinic. If you are aware of any health concerns or conditions going into the appointment, we are happy to discuss them with you and review them during the sports physical. We want to make the experience as convenient and effective as we possibly can. Since sports activities are a part of a healthy lifestyle, we understand making sure that all health considerations are covered before starting these physical activities, so they can also be as enjoyable as possible.

How long does a sports physical take?


The average amount of time that sports physicals will take is about 20 minutes, with some running around 45 minutes if additional concerns are being addressed in the same appointment. If you are concerned about the time it will take, then it is important to leave yourself some additional time before and after the appointment times to make sure that the process is not rushed, because this sports physical is done for the well-being and health during physical activities. If you are looking for compassionate care during your sports physical that is also efficient, where you will be heard and listened to, our team at Immediate Care of Oklahoma will surpass your expectations and make sure that every concern is covered before you leave our clinic.
