A sports physical exam, also known as a pre-participation physical examination (PPE) in the medical field, helps to determine whether or not a person is physically capable of participating in a sport. Before beginning school, a new activity, or camp, make sure your child is healthy and ready to participate.

A comprehensive physical examination assists your doctor in detecting medical concerns at an early stage, allowing them to be addressed and managed more effectively. High blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, and diabetes are just a few examples. Your physical exam may also be used to identify any possible weight issues that could develop into obesity, and we can advise you on some basic strategies to control the problem.
