Wellness Exams & Sports Physicals
Children and teens up to age 18 require expert care, especially when they are serious athletes. These kids are still growing, and their health care needs are unique.
Wellness Exams and sports physicals are available at all Adena Family Medicine and Pediatric clinics, and sports physicals are also available at Adena Urgent Care clinics.
Wellness Exams and Comprehensive Sports Physical
Our sports physicals are comprehensive exams, not just basic screenings. Your child will be examined by a Physician or Advanced Practice Provider (APP) who are specifically trained in assessment techniques used during these examinations.
Wellness exams address the following:
- Complete history and physical examination
- Discussion of the child’s weight, height and body mass index
- Nutrition, sleep habits, physical development and activity
- Risks to health and safety, as well as preventive health recommendations
- Status of chronic conditions
- Immunization updates
There is also the opportunity to discuss important issues such as avoiding drugs, tobacco and alcohol. It helps develop an open, trusting relationship with the parents and patient so they can turn to the provider with questions or concerns when needed.
