Athletic Physicals

Your family’s health is our top priority, that’s why we suggest well child checks when your child needs an athletic, college, or camp physical form signed by a doctor.

Well child checks are more than a screening, they are comprehensive exams which address your child’s individual needs and conditions, including updating immunizations, along with age-appropriate wellness education – AND your doctor will complete any required athletic, college, or camp physical forms.

Most well child checks are covered by insurance. Contact your insurance carrier for details.

Free Athletic Training Assessment

When your well child check includes a request for filling out an athletic physical form, your child is eligible for a FREE athletic training assessment provided by WMC Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Department specialists.  The assessment covers:

  • Joint flexibility and strength
  • Posture
  • Joint stability
  • Injury history review
  • Information on strength and conditioning

The assessment will be scheduled before the well child check with your doctor to allow the provider to review the results with you.
