Sports Physicals- Where, When, and Who Should Do It?
Spring is the time when parents begin asking us about school sports and camp physicals. These physicals are necessary for participation in school sports and are also required by many summer camps. While many schools do offer a clinic for sports physicals, these physicals should not take the place of your child's yearly wellness exam. A wellness exam is a more thorough exam conducted by your Best Start provider and a sports physical can be included in this exam as well.
