At AED urgent care clinic, we offer school and sport physicals to ensure the health and safety of students engaging in academic or athletic activities. These physical exams are designed to assess a student’s overall health and physical readiness to participate in their chosen activities.

During a school or sport physical, our experienced healthcare providers will review the student’s medical history, including any past illnesses, surgeries, allergies, or chronic conditions. This information helps us understand any potential health risks or precautions that need to be considered.

The physical examination typically involves measuring vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature, to assess the student’s general health. We also conduct a comprehensive assessment of the student’s body systems, including examination of the heart, lungs, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system, to identify any abnormalities or potential concerns.

In addition, the physical exam may include tests to evaluate vision, hearing, and flexibility. Vision tests can identify any visual impairments that may affect the student’s performance, while hearing tests can detect hearing loss or other auditory issues. Assessing flexibility is important for sports participation, as it helps determine the student’s range of motion and potential susceptibility to injuries.
Depending on the requirements of the school or sports program, we may also perform certain laboratory tests, such as urine analysis, to screen for any underlying health conditions. Additionally, we can update vaccinations, ensuring the student is up to date on immunizations required for school or sports participation.

Our healthcare providers understand the importance of preventive care and take the opportunity during the school or sport physical to educate students about healthy lifestyle choices, injury prevention, and proper nutrition. We encourage open dialogue, addressing any concerns or questions the student may have.

At the conclusion of the physical exam, our healthcare providers will provide the necessary documentation and clearance forms required by the school or sports program. If any medical concerns or follow-up appointments are identified, we will discuss them with the student and their parents/guardians, and recommend appropriate actions for ongoing care.

Please note that the specific requirements for school and sport physicals may vary depending on the educational institution or sports organization. It is important to check with the specific school or program to ensure all necessary forms and requirements are fulfilled. Our urgent care clinic is dedicated to providing comprehensive physical exams and supporting students in their academic and athletic endeavors.

How can I obtain the latest COVID-19 vaccine?

Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective and safest measure to prevent severe illness. Similar to other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body on building its own defense against the virus responsible for this disease. Typically, the COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses, with the second dose administered 14 to 28 days after the initial one. It takes approximately three weeks after the final dose to develop immunity. Access to COVID-19 vaccination is subject to availability and regulations set by your state. Please reach out to us for further information on obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine.
