Sport Physicals

The sports physical focuses on your well-being as it relates to playing a sport. It's more limited than a regular physical, but it's a lot more specific about athletic issues. During a regular physical, however, your doctor will address your overall well-being, which may include things that are unrelated to sports. You can ask the providers to give you both types of exams if your child is due for their annual wellness exam during one visit.

Wellness Exams

Also called well-child visits, checkups, or physicals, are an important part of maintaining children's health. During early childhood, children grow and change rapidly and require frequent medical checkups (e.g., every couple of months). As children get older, visits with the pediatrician usually become less frequent (e.g., once per year), but they remain important for maintaining good health, right up through the teen years and into adulthood.

Well-child visits are an opportunity for your child's pediatrician to:

  • evaluate his/her growth and development,
  • administer immunizations
  • assess existing medical conditions or identify new ones
  • address health concerns and questions
  • provide important information about health care.
