Schools typically require students to have a physical exam if they’re signing up for a sports team. However, even if your child doesn’t plan to participate this year, he or she should still have a back-to-school physical exam. Watch this video to hear the reasons why, and to find out what these screenings check for.
The expert interviewed here explains that the doctor will examine the child’s personal medical history and family history. If the child has had any prior injuries, the doctor will check that they have been properly rehabilitated. Additionally, the physician will consider the potential risk of recurrent injuries.
