Celebrate National Physical Fitness and Sports Month this May by visiting any Immediate Care Medical Walk-In location to receive a physical and be prepared for camp and sports this summer.
Recreational and school sports as well as camp facilities require up-to-date physical exams before an adolescent can take part in activities.
Sports and camp physicals are not only mandatory, but they also ensure that you are fully prepared for all summer sporting and camp events. During your visit, Immediate Care providers will review your medical history, assess for allergy and asthma and administer a full fitness assessment. The exam will also include a vision test, vitals check and flexibility examination. Be sure to bring a list of current medications and supplements, medical records including past vaccinations and any paperwork for Immediate Care providers to complete. Immediate Care offers physicals, seven days a week with no appointment necessary for anyone over the age of two.
Top 3 reasons to receive a physical:
- Assess Your Health: Allergy and asthma risks increase during summer especially in high-temperature climates. A physical will evaluate current and future risks of these conditions and build a treatment plan, if necessary. If you are experiencing allergy symptoms for the first time, visit Immediate Care Medical Walk-In of Hazlet for an allergy screening.
- Beat the Rush: Avoid the stress of making last-minute appointments or waiting until the fall. Complete your sports and camp mandatory physical requirements this month, which will be accepted for up to one year by most organizations.
- Stay in the Know: Physical exams address any pre-existing health conditions and discuss ways to prevent future medical concerns. Learning about your current health creates opportunity to put any necessary treatment plans in place.
