Sports physicals are an annual requirement for children that allows them to participate in sports and attend school as a healthy person.
Your child’s appointment should take an hour or less. The process can give parents peace of mind that their children are healthy and can participate in school sports.
At Carolina Urgent Care, the answer is yes. Routine checkups that include noninvasive sports and school physicals are normally done at a primary care physician’s office.
