About Statcare Physicals

School Physicals

Prior to entering school, children must be up-to-date on their immunizations. That’s the main focus of a school physical.

Summer Camp / Sports Physicals

During a camp or sports physical (also known as pre-participation physical), the doctor will evaluate your child’s current fitness level and risk of injury by checking their muscles, joints, strength, and flexibility. The goal is to determine whether it's safe for your child to participate in a particular activity or sport and at what level (contact/collision, limited contact/impact, non-contact, etc.).

If your child has been held out of PE class or sports due to a prior injury or medical condition, a physical is needed to get medical clearance to return to class or sport. A sports or camp physical should be conducted about 6 weeks before camp or the sports season begins to allow enough time to follow up on an issue, if necessary.

Pre-Employment / Work Physicals

Pre-employment physicals focus on determining whether you as a job candidate have the physical capability to perform the essential functions of the job you have applied for. Many employers also require a urine drug screen prior to making a job offer.

Insurance Medical Exam

Health and life insurance companies may require a medical exam to determine if you have any pre-existing conditions or condition that could shorten your life. The insurance medical exam typically includes blood work, urinalysis, and other tests such as EKG, treadmill stress test, etc. Based on the results, insurance underwriters will decide whether to insure you and how much the premium should be.

Physical Exam FAQs

Why do I need a physical?

Some adults may be required to have a pre-employment physical to ensure they can meet the physical demands of the job for which they have applied or accepted. Physicals for work typically evaluate a potential employee’s ability to perform a specific task, as well as strength and stamina.

Why does my child need a physical?

School-age children need physicals for entry into school and to participate in sports and camp. A physical ensures that your child is able to safely participate in gym class and camp activities and sports. A physical can also reveal any condition for which your child might need additional medical services, such as asthma or a cardiovascular problem. Getting regular school physicals from childhood to young adulthood is a good practice and promotes optimal health.

What’s involved in a physical exam?

In general, there are two main parts – a medical history and the physical exam – although certain aspects of the exam will depend on the type of physical you are having.

During a medical history, the doctor will review your family history for any serious illnesses or medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, etc. It is unsafe to participate in sports or other rigorous physical activity if you or your child are experiencing or have experienced in the past:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Heart murmurs

When pre-existing conditions are discovered or brought up in the examination, the doctor can prescribe medication, or an improved medication, particularly for asthma.

During a physical exam, the doctor will:

  • Test your vision
  • Take blood pressure and pulse (heart rhythm)
  • Check your heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose and throat
  • Evaluate your joints, flexibility, and reflexes

What happens after a physical?

At the end of the physical, the doctor will either sign the OK for participating in physical activities or meeting the demands of a job, or the doctor may request a follow-up exam, additional testing, or specific treatment for a medical problem.

Our walk-in physicals allow your child to safely participate in school, sports, or camp activities and you to safely perform job duties. The next time you or your child needs a physical, visit Statcare Urgent Care in Hicksville, Astoria, Brooklyn, or Bronx, New York.
