Sports physicals are required by a number of organizations, including camps, schools and community sports organizations, in order to ensure that students can safely participate in their activities.
During a sports physical, the doctor will ask questions about your medical history, including illnesses, allergies or past injuries.
The doctor will also conduct a physical examination, checking height/weight, blood pressure, vision, etc. They may also ask questions about use of supplements, performance enhancers or use of drugs/alcohol. Your doctor may also offer training advice, like stretching to avoid injuries.
Sports physicals are available throughout the year at the Marshall Sports Medicine Institute. MSMI also partners with a number of high schools and middle schools in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. As a result, free sports physical events are scheduled in late spring/early summer for students in these schools who are participating in school-sponsored sports.
