Sports Physicals Performed at Optimum Direct Care in Orlando, FL
Many schools and youth sports organizations require athletes to have their good health documented by a doctor, often on very short notice. If the season kickoff is just around the corner and time is of the essence, there is no need to wonder where to turn if you’re a member of Optimum Direct Care in Orlando, Florida. That’s because sports physicals are included in our monthly membership fee.
At Optimum Direct Care, sports physicals are performed by our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro. As a member of our direct primary care (DPC) practice, you can rely on Dr. Muzzi to make sure that all necessary forms are completed promptly and correctly so that your child can get out there and participate fully and safely. We make the process of getting sports physicals as efficient and hassle-free as possible.
What Do Sports Physicals Involve?
To help ensure that your child is fully prepared to take on the competition, Dr. Muzzi will evaluate a number of health-related factors, such as your child’s:
- Height, weight, and body mass index (BMI)
- Heart health and cardiovascular conditioning
- Musculoskeletal development
- Flexibility and range of motion
- Current activity level and physical fitness routine
- Chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and exercise-induced asthma
The Importance of Sports Physicals
Sports physicals are important for many reasons, even for children who are generally healthy and active. For instance, when performing a sports physical, Dr. Muzzi may identify health issues that might otherwise go unnoticed, such as vision or hearing problems, cardiac abnormalities that require specialist care, and developmental issues that affect bones or muscles. Based on the results of a thorough sports physical, Dr. Muzzi can provide individualized advice to protect your child’s health and ensure his or her safe participation in physical activity.
