All middle and high school students are required to have a pre-participation physical exam before competing in fall sports. According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s STOP Sports Injury Campaign, a pre-participation sports physical exam is a necessary first-step toward sports injury prevention in youth athletes. Access Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics offers the sports physicals to area students of all grade levels. The cost of the exam is $5.00 and it will be returned as a donation to many area school’s athletic programs. No appointments are necessary and athletes will be seen on a walk-in basis. It is important to note that this physical exam should not replace an annual physical or check-up with a pediatrician or primary care physician.
