What Are Sports Physicals?

Also known as a pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE), a sports physical is used to assess whether your child has any medical issues that could affect their sports performance or increase their chance of injury while playing. They are sometimes required by certain schools or sports organizations. Sports physicals typically include a physical exam and an overview of your child's health history. Dr. Charles Armstrong and Dr. Margaret Hart regularly perform sports physicals at Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center. If you have a child who is planning to play a new sport, call our Chandler, AZ office to schedule a sports physical.

What Happens During a Sports Physical?

While a sports physical may be similar to an annual exam, it is not the same thing nor is it meant to take the place of yearly checkups. A sports physical at Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center typically involves going over your child's medical history, including any present medical problems they may be experiencing, and having a physical exam. To begin, Dr. Armstrong or Dr. Hart will ask you about your child's overall health, such as any surgeries, allergies, illnesses, or injuries they've had or currently have. We will also want to know about your family health history and any current medications your child may be taking. During the physical exam, we may measure your child's weight, take their vitals, check for any vision issues, and examine their joints.

They're a great team. They treat you as a human being, not as a number, they do care about your life and that's why I'm giving 5 stars. I love all the staff ❤️ thank you!

Dr Hart was experienced, knowledgeable and thorough. She has a plan with health checkups to monitor any changes in my health status. Easy to book. Easy to contact.

This place does ask for reviews which is why I am doing one, I wouldn’t be doing a review if the service I received was bad. This has been one of the best doctors I’ve visited in a long time. I don’t think they are a specialist by any means but the doctor did really try to help me and I really appreciate that. They did thorough labs and did their best to identify anything wrong with me. Their staff are all very calm and friendly. The practice is very religious forward but they are not a church and do not try to preach their values to you so please don’t let this discourage you. I will highly recommend Dr Armstrong to anyone I know as they are a very caring practice and truly listened to my problems. Not to mention their staff went over and above with referrals and helping me out. Thanks so much to the team at heart of Mary’s.
