School & Sports Physicals

Most school districts, camps, and athletic leagues in New Mexico require sports or preparticipation physicals. Sports physicals are completed by one of our clinicians and include a review of the medical history, evaluation of any past injuries, and an overall examination of the physical health to exclude any factors that may interfere with the ability to play a sport.

During the exam, the body is evaluated top to bottom, the range of motion assessed, and the spine health examined. The doctor will:

  • record height and weight,
  • take blood pressure and pulse,
  • test the vision,
  • check heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat, and 
  • evaluate posture, joints, strength, and flexibility.

It’s best to schedule a sports physical about 4-6 weeks before the sports season begins so there’s enough time for follow-ups if necessary. Please bring any relevant health records, a list of medications, immunization records, and any required forms to your appointment.

Make sure it’s safe to play a sport—schedule an appointment today!
