What are sports physicals?
We are happy to perform sports physicals at Health Services of North Texas (HSNT) so that your child can be healthy and engage in a physical activity he or she enjoys. Many school-related sports programs and extracurricular activities require a physical for your child to participate. At our Wylie Children's Medical Clinic in Wylie, TX, we offer physical examinations in a timely manner. We advise that you schedule your child's sports physical a few weeks before it is due. This way, if your child has a health issue, we can address the condition that needs to be resolved (if possible). Our team of pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners can do the exam for your child and make sure the proper documentation is filled out for participation. If you would like to learn more about what is needed for the sports physical or would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out to us at HSNT.

Let's Get Ready for Physical Activities
You can prepare your child for a sports physical by explaining what will happen during his or her physical appointment. We understand that going to the doctor and not knowing what to expect can be stressful for your child. Our medical providers will ask about his or her medical history and then perform a physical examination.
During the physical exam, our HSNT team will be looking for medical issues that may impact your child's health when participating in an activity. Your child can rest assured that this is not an invasive appointment, and we will make the exam as simple as possible. Of course, our providers will be thorough and make sure to collect the information needed to fill out your physical form. We will be assessing your child's height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, reflexes, and more.
If You Need Additional TEsts for a Sports Physical
If our team at Health Services of North Texas feels that your child needs to have additional testing performed, we may offer an additional test to check out an abnormality. For example, if your child has had a chronic illness or a previous sports injury, there may be extra steps to take to ensure he or she is well enough to play safely. We also want to keep other children from getting sick if your child has recently had a contagious illness. Conveniently, we do have in-house testing and a laboratory for faster results.
