Sports Physicals

  • Identify and screen any potential undiagnosed medical condition that could make sports participation unsafe
  • Look for and intervene in poorly controlled chronic conditions such as asthma, obesity, hypertension, post-concussion syndrome, mental health issues or eating disorders
  • Screen for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic or acute, that need further workup or rehab prior to sports participation

Our sports physicals include:

  • Personal and family medical history questionnaire
  • Blood pressure and pulse measurement
  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Assessment of joint flexibility and mobility
  • Checks for reflexes, strength and coordination
  • Evaluation of spinal alignment and posture

Employment Physicals

Physicals for work help to ensure the safety of the employee and those around them while they perform job-related tasks. Employment physicals are particularly important in high-risk positions such as commercial driving, law enforcement, public safety positions, manufacturing and labor occupations.

Our employment physicals include:

  • Personal and family medical history questionnaire
  • Blood pressure and pulse measurement
  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Physical ability tests for specific job function

Some jobs and/or employers may also require blood and urine tests, chest X-rays or an electrocardiogram (EKG). DOT physical exams must follow stringent DOT guidelines, and may also include passing a standardized test to prove proficiency in the job.

Our locations can provide same-day service, or you can schedule an appointment for your sports or employment physical.
