Every participant in a school sports team is required to complete a pre-participation physical examination, also called sports physicals.
Sports physicals consist of two parts: A medical history and a physical examination. The goals of sports physicals are to evaluate an athlete’s general health, current fitness level, risk of injury, and physical well-being. Sports physicals are recommended for students and adults that are taking part in:
- School or interleague sports program
- Club sports teams
- New fitness regimens
A sports physical allows a physician to identify any conditions that might keep the athlete out of the game or affect performance. Athletes should have a physical six weeks before the start of the sport season; however this can vary due to changing sport seasons. This timing provides an opportunity to address an existing injury or improve conditioning prior to participation in the activity.
It is mandated by federal guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the Department of Transportation physical exam. The purpose of this test is to check whether an applicant is physically capable of driving safely now and in the foreseeable future.
