What are sports physicals?
Many school-related sports programs and extracurricular activities require a physical for your child to participate. At Blue Elk Family Clinic, we offer physical exams for camps and athletics to locals in Nashville, Columbus, Bloomington, and Indianapolis, IN. We advise that you schedule your child's sports physical a few weeks before it is due so that we can address any conditions that need to be resolved before being allowed to participate. If you would like to learn more about what is needed for the sports physical or would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out to Dr. Larry Sanchez at Blue Elk Family Clinic.
"This was my 1st visit and I was a little nervous seeing a new Dr. .I was so impressed how much time was taken with me and did not feel like I was being rushed or not listened to. You don't come across a doctors office like that anymore."- E.M. / Office Visit / Jan 27, 2023

What Happens During A Camp Or Sports Physical?
We understand that going to the doctor and not knowing what to expect can be stressful for your child. During the physical exam, Dr. Sanchez will be looking for medical issues that may impact your child's health when participating in an activity. Your child can rest assured that this procedure is simple, noninvasive, and professionally conducted. We will be assessing your child's height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, reflexes, posture, and internal organ health. We will also examine for any lumps or abnormalities that could be cause for concern. Dr. Sanchez will be thorough and make sure to collect the information needed to fill out your physical form.
