Has Your Child Had a School or Sports Physical Exam this Year?
Required Sports Physicals in San Antonio
When your child’s school requires a medical professional to complete a physical exam, you can choose one of RediClinic’s four convenient walk-in clinic locations throughout San Antonio.
No Appointment is Necessary for Sports Physicals
RediClinic walk-in clinics are open seven days a week with extended weekday hours, which means flexibility to meet your busy family schedule and children’s healthcare needs. RediClinic also has shorter wait times than emergency rooms and doctors’ offices. RediClinic’s average visit time is only 15 minutes once you are called into the exam room, so you’ll be in and out as quickly as possible.
Even if your school does not require a back-to-school physical, our board certified clinicians recommend annual head-to-toe physical exams for your child to track his or her development and health.
What’s Included in the Physical Exam
Essentially, a school or sports physical exam allows for a head-to-toe examination of your child to give you a snapshot of their current health. A RediClinic clinician will perform a thorough assessment of the following:
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure
- Eyes, ears, nose, and throat
- Neck and chest
- Heart and abdomen
- Lymph nodes
- Skin and muscles
- Joints and spine
