This week marks the beginning of the Massachusetts school schedule. While this may not be greeted with cheers by this state’s youth, this week also marks the start of school sports, which everybody loves. Yet before student athletes can participate, they’ll need to display proof of a recent sports physical.
This time of the year is nearly impossible to schedule a sports physical, as many pediatricians are overbooked with patients receiving their sports physicals and annual check-ups. If this is the case with your child’s pediatrician, don’t worry – we at AFC Doctors Express Urgent Care Watertown are here to administer your child their sports physical – on a same-day basis. We accommodate all walk-ins and never require our patients to schedule an appointment to take advantage of our top-rated medical services.
The purpose of sports physicals is to ensure each participant is healthy enough to compete in sports. We prioritize the health of our patients, so we make sure our sports physicals are thorough and of the highest quality. Our sports physicals include:
- Test patient’s hearing, vision, posture and heart rate
- Reviewing of patient’s medical history
- Recording of patient’s weight and height
- Examine lungs, abdomen, ears and spine
To take advantage of our sports physicals services, visit us any day of the week – with no appointment necessary. For more information, call us at 617.923.2273. We look forward to helping your child play their favorite sport!
