Has your child signed up to play a sport this season, or attend a camp this summer? If so, don’t forget to get a physical exam!
Many schools, camps, and community organizations require pre-participation exams, and Village Medical Center is here to help. Sport and camp physical exams are important because they can help find health problems that could stop your child from competing safely or participating in camp activities.
The appointment takes approximately 15-20 minutes and covers the basics of your child’s current health status, with a focus on height, weight, vision, hearing, heart health, blood pressure, strength, flexibility, coordination, and reflexes.
If needed, our providers may also give immunizations and discuss topics like nutrition, exercise, sleep, and social behavior.
Plan on getting your child a sports physical at least six to eight weeks before the season starts. The physical is usually good for one year.
We’ve served children and their families in The Woodlands since 1985 and are committed to keeping our patients healthy both on and off the field.
