Essentia Health encouraging sports physicals ahead of the school year

July 10, 2024  By: Anthony Matt


Essentia Health is making it easier for your children to receive sports physicals ahead of the school year.

We will offer the following expanded hours at select Duluth-area clinics to have sports physicals completed:

Sports physicals are required for your children to compete in school sports. Getting them done early helps beat the rush before the school year begins.

Sports physicals can help identify any health issues that might interfere with sports performance or increase the chances of injury while competing. These visits include a comprehensive discussion of the patient’s medical history as well as a physical exam.

Sports physicals are specific to playing sports and do not replace an annual physical or well-child/teen visit.

Appointments are encouraged, as limited walk-in opportunities are available.
