Sports Physical at Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinic in West Chester, PA

AFC Urgent Care & Walk-in Clinic in West Chester, PA, offers sports physical exams for summer camps and sports teams

It does not matter if it is the summer or the school year; the schedules of parents and children are usually busy. If you or your child participate in organized sports or go to summer camps, you will need a sports physical. It can be challenging to schedule this simple examination with your regular provider without having to take a day off of work. Often you have to plan these appointments months in advance. Skip the hassle and make the process easier with a visit to AFC Urgent Care West Chester for your Sports Physical. We will complete all forms after your thorough examination without an appointment to receive a sports physical at our urgent care center. We can, if requested, forward the results of your physical to your regular provider to update their records.

A physical before competitive sports is crucial to keeping healthy throughout the year, especially for children. In many cases, you will only be allowed to participate in organized sports if you pass a sports physical. Our board-certified providers will ensure you or your child’s bodies and joints can handle the activities related to the sport they are playing or the camp they are attending. Our providers will ensure you can handle hours of stretching, bending, and running without any health concerns. Catching a problem early allows us to address them and prevent severe injuries before they happen. Although generally required, getting a sports physical every year is a good idea.

What are some things your providers will review at AFC Urgent Care West Chester during a sports physical?

Depending on the nature of the activity, some of the things our providers will review include:

Medical History

Our providers will review your or your child’s medical history to review any previous health issues or diseases. If there is documentation regarding any past medical concerns, please bring it to our clinic so our providers can review it as part of the physical process. It will only help them give a more thorough examination. Details regarding past injuries, allergies, or current medications are also helpful

Physical Examination:

Our providers will record your or your child’s blood pressure, weight, heart function, and pulse during the physical examination. Depending on the activity, they will also test your flexibility and joints. This part of the examination ensures your or your child’s health is prepared for vigorous physical activities and exercise. These things will all be recorded to be compared later in future physicals to ensure no concerning changes.

AFC Urgent Care West Chester is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointment is required for a sports physical or any of our other services. Save time and pre-register with our facility ahead of time. Do you have any questions about sports physicals or our other services? Call our friendly staff today!

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Do I need an appointment for a sports physical?

  • Are there any sports for which a provider will not give a sports physical?

    No. Our sports physical should satisfy the requirements of any local school, camp, amateur, or semi-professional sport. Feel free to call if there is a specific thing you would like to be checked during a physical

  • How long will the exam take?

    AFC offers some of the lowest wait times around, with many patients getting in to see a provider in less than 15 minutes. Your exam will probably take around a half hour. High patient volume and complex patient cases may effect exam times and wait times.

  • What happens if my physical reveals I have a medical problem?

    We’ll complete your paperwork as required, but if it’s something we can help with we might be able to provide you with treatment on the spot. With in-house labs at many locations, you could be on your way without the need for a second visit.
