In Colorado, every student athlete who participates in school sports is required to complete a pre-participation physical examination, also known as a sports physicals, and must be compliant with CHSAA (Colorado High School Activities Association). Sports physicals consist of two parts: a medical history and a physical examination.
The goals of sports physicals are to evaluate an athlete’s general health, current fitness level, risk of injury, and physical well-being. Sports physicals are recommended for students and adults that are taking part in:
- School or interleague sports program
- Club sports team
Sports physicals allows physicians to identify any health conditions that could prevent an athlete from playing the game(s) safely or affect there performance. It is recommended that student athletes have a physical 4-6 weeks prior to beginning an activity. This allows for the opportunity to address pre-existing conditions or improve conditions prior to the start of the season, minimizing the absence of play. Contact Us Now to Schedule!
