Sports Physicals

Plan Ahead, Get a Sports Physical

Be ready when the whistle blows. A student athlete’s path to victory starts with a sports physical at Sanford Health.

During our Sports Physical Blitz, players can walk in without an appointment to select clinics. No matter the sport, our expert physicians will ensure your young athlete is fit and ready to play for the upcoming school year. See the full list of events below.


Why Get a Sports Physical?

A sports physical is a chance to have a trained professional check your child’s health. Your doctor will look for health issues that could arise during game time.


Catch Undetected Problems

Health problems can go unnoticed without a trained professional explicitly looking for them. A student physical will identify and treat health issues that could have ended the season before it began.

Your sports physical provider will:

  • Check your child’s basic health
  • Look for cardiovascular and lung conditions
  • Answer your health care questions
  • Evaluate the healing of old injuries

Prevent Injuries Before They Happen

While the ultimate goal of a sports physical is to look for present problems, it is the perfect time to educate your child on healthy habits.

Your doctor will discuss:

  • Recognizing signs of concussions and other sports injuries
  • Recommended stretching routines
  • Suggested preventative gear (such as ankle or wrist taping)
  • Healthy eating
  • Staying active
  • Risky social behavior (for adolescents)
