Whether your child is starting a new school year or participating in a school-sponsored sport, he will need medical clearance, such as proof of vaccination or a pre-participation physical.
Dr. Shaikh-Abbasi offers comprehensive physicals to ensure your child is ready to learn or play sports. When a child is struggling academically in school, the issue often turns out to be a vision or hearing problem. During your child’s annual well visit, Dr. Shaikh-Abbasi will conduct vision and hearing screenings and treat your child or refer her to a specialist if necessary.
The goal of any sports physical is to keep your child safe. Sports physicals can detect health issues or risks that may affect your child’s performance or ability to participate – or even potentially jeopardize her life.
If your child is participating in organized school sports, Dr. Shaikh-Abbasi will conduct a physical exam to make sure your child is in good physical health and can meet the demands of his sport. She will review your child’s medical history, check vital signs and vision, evaluate heart health, and assess strength, flexibility, and joint health.
Sports physicals should typically be completed six weeks prior to the start of the season but be sure to check with your school or coach for details and schedule your child’s physical accordingly.
