Sports Physicals in Cincinnati, OH
Getting Your Child Ready for Sports
Anderson Hills Pediatrics is committed to preparing your child for participation in sports and athletic programs. Your child’s annual check-up meets all requirements of the sports physicals that athletic leagues and schools need. As part of your child’s check-up, the pediatrician will identify any issues that may cause injury or be of concern during the season.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and our pediatricians recommend that your child receives their annual check-up from their pediatrician. We do not recommend that your child receive a sports physical from a mass screening at school, urgent care, or a pharmacy clinic where medical and immunization records are unavailable. These physicals do not include an evaluation of your child’s overall health. If an abnormal health condition is identified, your child likely will have to visit their primary pediatrician, which may delay sports participation.
Important: Ohio and Kentucky require a sports physical form to be on file with the school before the first practice. We encourage you to confirm the necessary forms with your child’s school or athletic league. Please bring all the required forms to your visit with all patient and parent portions completed.
