School Physicals

For Students & Athletes K-12

At Flex Spine and Sport, we understand the importance of ensuring the health and well-being of students and young athletes. Our doctors are dedicated to providing thorough and reliable school physicals for children and adolescents from kindergarten through 12th grade. These evaluations are designed to meet the requirements set forth by schools and sports organizations, ensuring that each student is physically prepared for the academic year and athletic activities.

What to Expect During a School Physical

A school physical at Flex Spine and Sport includes a comprehensive evaluation to assess the overall health and fitness of the student. Our physicals typically include:

  • Medical History Review: We begin by reviewing the student’s medical history, including any past illnesses, surgeries, allergies, and current medications. This helps us understand any pre-existing conditions or concerns that may need special attention.
  • Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination is conducted to check the student's vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate. We also assess the student's height, weight, vision, and hearing.
  • Growth and Development Assessment: Monitoring growth and development is crucial, especially during the formative years. We track these metrics to ensure the student is developing healthily and address any concerns promptly.
  • Musculoskeletal Evaluation: For student athletes, it is particularly important to evaluate the musculoskeletal system. This includes checking the strength, flexibility, and overall condition of the muscles and joints to identify any potential issues that could affect athletic performance or increase the risk of injury.
  • Immunization Review: We ensure that the student’s immunizations are up to date, in accordance with school requirements and public health guidelines. If needed, we can administer any necessary vaccinations during the visit.
  • Health and Lifestyle Counseling: Our doctors provide guidance on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition, exercise, and injury prevention. For athletes, we offer specific advice on training and recovery practices to optimize performance and reduce the risk of sports-related injuries.
