Back to school means the end of summer and the beginning of school sports. Most schools will require a specific sports physical form be filled out before your child can participate. If you wait until the last minute, you are likely to find that your child’s pediatrician is booked out past the paperwork deadline. Don’t let your student athlete miss out on a great opportunity.

Where to get a sports physical

There are a few places you can get a sports physical for your child. They will vary in cost and in the speed at which they can fit you in for an appointment.

  • Primary care pediatrician: Not always able to schedule your child for a sports physical in a timely manner
  • Pharmacy clinic: May have a long wait time and a higher price
  • Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group Express Care Clinic: Able to treat urgent bone and joint care needs as well as conduct sports physicals
