Why Does My Child Need a Sports Physical?
Sports physicals are necessary to ensure the safety of your child while participating in the sport or sports he or she loves. During the sports physical, a physician can evaluate the physical health of your child to ensure he or she is physically ready to hit the field.

What’s the Difference Between a Sports Physical and Annual Exam?
