Most schools and sports teams require children to undergo a physical before the new school year starts. These exams assess a child’s health to ensure that they are physically fit to go to school or participate in athletic activities.
Physical activity is great for children, but it is important to have their physical condition assessed to make sure they aren’t at serious risk for injury. One of the most important parts of the sports physical is examining the strength of the heart. Though it is rare, some children are born with a heart condition that can go undetected during regular physicals. Strenuous physical activity can trigger a serious cardiac event which could be fatal. Thankfully, heart condition screening is something that is offered in most sports physicals and can help prevent this from happening.
