Get in Early for a Sports or Camp Physical

In addition to maintaining a well child check schedule, there are a number of kids that visit with pediatricians in Scottsdale and other areas in metro Phoenix to receive physicals. Physicals are different than the standard check ups completed by pediatricians and other health care providers in that they place a larger emphasis on health as it pertains to athletics.

Physical exams are much briefer than appointments in a well child check schedule due to their limited focus. Instead of addressing all aspects of health, which can include behavioral, school and other issues, top pediatricians strictly check physical health and fitness.

For safety purposes, physicals completed by qualified Phoenix pediatricians are required by schools, sports programs and camps throughout the Valley. While many of these programs allow individuals to participate in a sport if they have had a physical one year prior to the start of the program, pediatricians in Scottsdale and other areas have seen a number of programs that have stricter rules. Many schools and outside programs in the area require a physical to be completed 60 or 90 days prior to the start of a sports season or other activity. Check with your child’s school or outside program to determine the best time to make an appointment with a pediatrician for a physical.
