Why Should You Schedule Your Young Athlete’s Sports Physical at Fossil Creek Chiropractic?
Sports physicals (also known as preparticipation physical evaluations, PPE, or sports screenings) are required of the majority of middle school, high school, and college athletes in Colorado prior to their participation in a sport. Sports physicals help determine whether an athlete is healthy for training and competition.
The sports physical evaluation, which includes a robust health history as well as a comprehensive physical exam, typically takes 30 minutes. Unique to Fossil Creek Chiropractic is our personalized approach to sports physicals and preparticipation physical evaluations. We schedule private sports physicals with each young athlete, meeting with each athlete one-on-one to talk about health history, health concerns, training concerns, athletic goals, and risk of injury. We stress the importance of nutrition as a key to athletic training and work with young athletes to help them eat healthy and prepare for competition. We also recommend measures to avoid over-training injuries. At Fossil Creek Chiropractic, we enjoy helping middle school athletes, high school athletes, and college athletes reach their full athletic potential.
