Most summer camps require children to get a physical before they arrive (and some before you’re allowed to even register)! At eMedical Urgent Care, we realize that moms and dads are constantly on the go, which is why we are pleased to offer walk-in summer camp physicals and sports physicals. Our professional, experienced staff provide convenient, high-quality medical care when you’re on a tight schedule and outside of regular doctor’s office hours…even on the weekends.
Why Physicals are Necessary
No matter if your children are heading to camp, swimming, playing football, cheerleading, golf or running track, there’s always a risk of getting hurt. Make sure these little bodies are ready for the season ahead by preparing with a pre-participation physical examination (PPE). If you feel this requirement is just one more hurdle in the registration process, just think about this: a physical could save your child’s life.
The purpose of the physical is to screen kids for health issues that may pose a risk when they’re at camp or playing sports. Medical conditions can be discovered during the exam that require further evaluation and treatment before participation can begin. Ensure your child is in the best physical condition possible to meet the demands of the sport or camp.
What to Bring
eMedical Urgent Care makes it easy to get your children’s camp, school or sports physicals. All necessary forms are completed onsite at the time of your visit. Remember to bring the form, a copy of your child’s most recent immunization records and insurance card.
What to Expect
Your healthcare providers at eMedical Urgent Care will include the following in the exam:
• Review your child’s medical history
• Ask about any use medications including drugs, vitamins or dietary supplements
• Record height and weight
• Perform a Physical exam
• Check blood pressure, pulse, respirations and oxygen saturation
• Test your child’s vision
• Check your child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat
• Test all major joints, strength, and flexibility
Following the physical examination, the doctor will either sign a form allowing your child’s participation in camp or request a follow-up exam, additional immunizations, testing, or specific treatment for a medical problem.
