My first visit. I had made an appointment and had no wait time. The staff member took my vitals and noted my concerns for the treating physician. The physician was pleasant and professional, and diagnosed my condition, and prescribed prescription medication for my cough and wheezing condition. It has now been 2 days and I feel like he medication is helping to address my condition.

Sports Physicals FAQs

  • What do they do at a sports physical?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, a sports physical normally includes a chat about your medical history as well as a physical examination. A sports physical is intended to detect any potential health issues that may be caused or exacerbated by sports, as well as to manage chronic diseases or injuries that may prevent you from participating in specific activities.

  • What is a physical exam?

    During a physical exam, your doctor will examine and evaluate your body to see whether you have any physical health issues. According to the National Library of Medicine, a physical examination normally entails your doctor visually inspecting your body, feeling it with their fingers or hands, and listening to it (such as your heart).

  • What if you don’t pass a sports physical?

    According to Texas A&M University, if your doctor detects a concern that could jeopardize your health and safety while participating in sports, they will work with you to identify and address the issue before the start of the season, if possible. Your doctor may recommend that you use a medical device such as a brace or send you to a specialist for additional treatment, according to the University.

  • What sports are common for sports physicals?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, most states and schools require you to acquire a sports physical before participating in any activity.

  • What happens at a physical for a woman?

    Women's sports physicals are comparable to men's. According to Texas A&M University, men and women get full physicals, but women don't get a pelvic check. According to the university, some female athletes may develop eating problems as a result of not eating enough while keeping active, which can disrupt their menstrual cycles. Females may consult their doctors about diet and eating habits that will keep them healthy in these situations.

  • Where can I get a sports physical for my child in Washington DC?

    According to Texas A&M University, a sports physical for a child can be done at the school or with your health care physician during a well-child appointment. Consult your child's pediatrician to see if the clinic provides sports physicals or if they may recommend you to someone who does.

  • Where can I get a sports physical near me in Washington DC?

    Type "sports physicals near me" into Solv's search engine to find a nearby sports physical in Washington DC. Only the highest-rated healthcare providers are included on Solv, making it simple to find a good sports physical or urgent care center in your neighborhood. Browse providers on Solv's home page today and book a same-day or next-day appointment.

Washington DC Sports Physicals

A sports physical can assist you and your doctor in determining whether or not it is safe for you or your child to engage in sporting activities. Understanding what happens during a sports physical will help you prepare for your appointment and choose the correct practitioner.

What is a sports physical?

According to the National Institutes of Health, the purpose of a sports physical is to discover health issues or concerns that may place you at increased risk for injury, illness, or death when participating in sports (NIH). Before each new school year or sports season, most schools require pupils to obtain a sports physical.

The usual sports physical, according to Texas A&M University, involves an in-depth discussion of your medical history as well as a physical examination. Your doctor will sign any appropriate school paperwork if your health is in good standing, allowing you to continue participating in your sport of choice. If your doctor suspects a medical problem, you may be advised to undergo more testing or wear a special protective equipment such as a brace while participating in sports, according to the university.

Medical history

During a sports physical, your doctor will most likely inquire about your personal and family medical histories. According to Texas A&M University, common family medical history queries center on a family history of heart illness and certain cardiac diseases such as arrhythmia and Marfan syndrome. Your doctor may also inquire as to whether anyone in your family died of heart disease abruptly or early (before the age of 50).

Your doctor may inquire about your personal medical history, such as if you have asthma or other breathing issues, headaches, a history of concussion, or if you have ever experienced significant weariness when exercising. Your doctor may also inquire if you've ever been diagnosed with a heart murmur, according to Texas A&M University.

According to the University, the goal of these discussions is to identify any potential health issues that may arise while or as a result of participating in sports.

Physical examination

Your vital signs, vision, and hearing will all be checked during the physical examination. According to Texas A&M University, heart and lung disorders are among the most common health concerns among doctors who give sports physicals. According to the University, doctors also check for muscle and joint disorders and make sure you don't have any issues with your head, shoulders, back, or knees.

If you have a history of joint instability or twisted ankles, your doctor may offer particular strengthening exercises or a change in diet if you are overweight, according to the University. This is also a good opportunity to talk to your doctor about ways to increase your physical fitness before the sports season begins.

Why is a sports physical important?

According to the National Library of Medicine, a sports physical is crucial because it teaches you how to avoid accidents while playing sports and how to conduct particular activities safely if you have a chronic medical condition (NLM).

A sports physical can also identify whether you are in excellent health, have any current ailments, and were born with any diseases that may enhance your risk of injury, according to the National Library of Medicine. A sports physical also assesses your level of physical fitness and body maturity.

When and where should I go for a sports physical?

According to Texas A&M University, you should plan your sports physical test four to eight weeks before the start of the sports season. This allows your doctor adequate time to look into and answer any issues you may have during your initial consultation. It also offers you additional time to see a medical specialist for treatment of your disease or injury, if necessary.

According to Texas A&M University, a sports physical can be paired with a wellness exam or a well-child visit. It goes on to say that sports physicals may be performed on campus at your child's school in some cases. Request information from your doctor about where you or your children can get a sports physical.

What if there’s a problem?

If your doctor determines that you or your kid has a health or medical issue that prevents you or your child from participating in sports, he or she may work with you to treat the problem or refer you to a specialist who can. According to Texas A&M University, scheduling your sports physical four to eight weeks before the start of the season can usually provide you enough time to address and resolve concerns so you can continue with your sports activity.

Do I still have to get a regular physical?

According to the National Library of Medicine, a sports physical does not replace a regular physical or routine checkup. Consult your doctor to find out when your next routine physical is due and what might be on the yearly physical exam checklist so you can be prepared for your appointment.

Who needs a sports physical?

According to the National Institutes of Health, children and teens who wish to participate in sports are normally required by their schools to acquire a sports physical before the start of the new school year or sports season. If you participate in community sports and activities, a sports physical may be advantageous. Before participating in any athletic activity, check with your doctor to see if you or your child requires a sports physical.
