School Physical Q & A

What is a school physical?

A school physical is an important component of your child’s health care. It provides an opportunity for you to make sure your child is healthy and meets appropriate developmental benchmarks.

Between childhood and adolescence, your son or daughter experiences significant mental and physical growth and development. Investing in a school physical before the start of a new school year can alert you to potential problems that might interfere with their ability to focus or excel in the classroom.

What is a sports physical?

The majority of organized sports programs require participants to undergo a sports physical before the start of a new season. Generally, sports physicals feature two separate steps: a physical exam and a review of your medical history. 

Your Aspen Medical Group, Inc. doctor can also provide you with tips and insights that lower your risk of injury. For example, if you play a contact sport like hockey or football, you might want to wear a mouthguard. In addition, your doctor can recommend stretches and warm-up exercises that lower your risk of pulling a muscle or ligament. 

What is a work physical?

Many companies require new employees to participate in work physicals, or pre-employment physicals, as part of the onboarding process. The majority of businesses follow guidelines set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or your local Department of Health. 

The goal of a work physical is to ensure you’re physically and mentally capable of handling the tasks your job description requires. Not all businesses require work physicals, but if you work in a job such as commercial driving or one that’s physically demanding, like construction, there’s a good chance you’ll need to participate in one. 

Will you provide me with the necessary paperwork following my school or work physical?

Yes. Following a review of your medical history and thorough physical evaluation, your Aspen  Medical Group, Inc. provider fills out any necessary paperwork that your employer or child’s school requires. If they detect any potential health problems, they’ll also develop a treatment plan that helps improve your overall health and wellbeing.
