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.
Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center Reviews
A friendly, effective, and efficient visit. Highly recommend.
Being Autistic, this is my first experience on my own with a Doctor's Office from Finding to Appointment. I can say, without a doubt that I really like the staff, they explained when I asked and I truly look forward to returning. I even enjoyed all my staff interactions. Especially when my veins were difficult to locate, the staff member trying was extra attentive to my request to not fish and did a fantastic job, like the rest of the staff I encountered. I look forward to my next visit and believe this is where my care is best done.
He made sure to give me a Blood Lab . Good Doctor
Dr. Armstrong was very kind and had great communication skills He was extremely cautious and thoughtful of his plan I would 100% recommend him I seriously hate reviewing anything but he deserves a shout out
Great experience! I plan to make Dr. Armstrong my new primary care physician.
