Why Sports Physicals Are Necessary

Sports physicals are done to determine if a student is healthy enough to participate in the sports programs so that there will be minimum possibilities of sports-related injuries and illness. The physical test helps to understand if there are any high-risk signs and symptoms that may affect your child’s ability to play.

The exam helps to determine a child’s “safe level of activity”.
