Getting Your Athlete Ready for Spring | Ooltewah, TN Walk-In Clinic

With spring sports’ tryouts in full swing, AFC Urgent Care Ooltewah wants to make certain your athlete is healthy and ready to play ball!

Gearing Up for a Healthy Season

There’s no better way to start a new sports’ season than with a sports physical. Now-a-days, sports physicals are required at most every school (including those right here in Ooltewah and surrounding areas) before a child is even able to try out for a particular sport.

But why are they so important?

Sports physicals allow an athlete to be thoroughly evaluated to ensure his or her heart, mind and muscles are ready for the endurance a sport needs and requires. You wouldn’t want to send your child out to play with an underlying medical condition that could become serious with exertion. While sports are fun, they aren’t worth risking your child’s health.

Sports physicals also give doctors an opportunity to talk with parents about steps they can take to help protect their kids from injury.

Win or lose, AFC Urgent Care Ooltewah wants to ensure your athlete is ready for the game. Visit us today for a sports physical before heading out onto the field!
