Sports Physicals in Arlington, VA

Our sports physicals are fast, convenient and affordable, ensuring your child has the required documentation to play sports, and you have the peace of mind knowing your child is healthy and ready for the season ahead.

Why Do You Need Sports Physicals?
Sports physicals are more than just another form to check off as you get your kid ready to go back to school. These are very important to protect your child’s health and wellness. At a sports physical, our physician will:
- Ensure that it is safe for your child to engage in sports activity.
- Identify life-threatening conditions, like asthma or heart conditions, that may make sports dangerous.
- Determine if there are any recent conditions or injuries that would require limitations for the sports activity.
- Ensure that any old injuries are properly healed before the child participates in sports.
- Remove any previous restrictions from old injuries or conditions.
- Help your child understand the importance of nutrition and conditioning while participating in sports.
Though it may seem like the sports physical is over fast, it is an important visit. Urgent Care Center of Arlington makes it easy to get this important item checked off of your “to do” list with our extended hours and convenient care format.
