Who needs Sports or Camp Physicals?
Knowing your child is healthy enough to play a sport or participate in camp activities is not only required by each program, but can help give you peace of mind. Routine physicals such as these can help rule out any underlying health issues you may not have been aware of.
The Importance of Sports Physicals and Camp Physicals
Sports and camp physicals are an important part of reducing the risk of injury for your child. It can also be a proactive way to prevent illnesses or injury by receiving advice from one of our New Milford physicians about limitations your child may face. For instance, a child with asthma may be able to participate in a sport or camp activities but we can inform them about any of the limitations they may experience due to their condition.
