Essentia Health Offers Sports Physicals

Being a parent of a student-athlete keeps you busy, especially in the fall. Essentia Health wants to make getting ready for school and sports easier. Get a jump on your fall to-do list by taking care of your child’s sports physical during a time that’s convenient for you.

Beat the rush of back-to-school and make an appointment today at the Essentia Health clinic closest to you.  You can also utilize any of the Essentia Health Walk-In Clinics for a sports physical. These visits are available during regular clinic hours and on a first come first served basis.

“Sports physicals include a general exam and the chance to talk about any potential health issues a student-athlete might have,” says Pediatric Hospitalist Dr. David Clutter. He adds, “A sports physical is also an opportune time to check for history of concussion, past injuries or issues the athlete may have as well as address any concerns that might become a bigger health issue down the road.”
