Is your child in need of a Physical Exam?
While traditionally held for student athletes, a sports physical is a health checkup that should be experienced by everyone. Sports physicals may seem like a time burden but they can be a great investment in the long term health of your child. Osland Chiropractic is proud to offer sport physicals for school athletes.
From minor issues such as cramping and muscle spasms to more complex issues such as back or neck pain, comprehensive sports physicals performed by a chiropractor will help your young athlete feel and perform better.
What Does a Physical Examination Include?
We first gain an understanding of your child’s medical history including any past injuries. We then look into any injury whether major or minor that they are currently experiencing. Finally, we determine the current level of physical activity, nutritional habits, and lifestyle that your child experiences on a day to day basis.
At this point we go through our initial assessment by testing their mobility, range of motion, and general strength. After this assessment your is taken through our traditional treatment plan including a chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue work, and muscle stimulation.
After the exam we provide recommendations as to how you can keep your student athlete healthy throughout the school year. These recommendations will be based on their current physical health and the type of sports activity they will engage in.
