A pediatric sports physical can help you find out about and deal with health problems your child has that might interfere with their participation in a sport. For example, if they have frequent asthma attacks but are starting soccer, a doctor might be able to prescribe a different type of inhaler or adjust the dosage so that they can breathe more easily when they run.
Your doctor may even have some good training tips and be able to give them some ideas for avoiding injuries. For example, they may recommend certain stretching or strengthening activities that help prevent injuries. A doctor can also identify risk factors that are linked to specific sports. Advice like this will make your child a better, stronger athlete and you a happier parent.
