We Help Children, Teens, and Adults Safely Engage in Sports
Preferred Urgent Care can perform sports physicals for individuals of any age from Katy, Fulshear, or their surrounding localities. This physical examination assesses whether someone can safely engage in a specific sport. For children and teens engaging in sports at school or as an extracurricular activity, this medical examination is also known as Preparticipation Physical Examination (PPE).
Most schools and sports centers require that school-aged children go through a PPE. A sports physical can be valid for either a calendar or school year. If your child needs a PPE, they usually need to get another one before the next sports season starts. Scheduling a sports physical six weeks before the beginning of a season or other training is helpful because it gives time to address any concerns and provide treatment for minor issues.
At Preferred Urgent Care, our services include free kids' sports physicals and make medical examinations accessible thanks to our extended business hours. You can visit us on a walk-in basis or by appointment seven days a week from 8 am to 9 pm. Our team members speak English and Spanish for your convenience.
Please note that a sports physical does not replace a standard physical. Although the physical examination portion can be similar, a school, work, or general physical usually involves additional assessments.
Call Preferred Urgent Care today at (281) 984-6735 or use our online form to schedule your or your child’s sports physical in Katy or Fulshear, TX!
Who Needs a Sports Physical in Katy, Fulshear, and Their Surrounding Areas?
Texas is one of the states that require student-athletes to get a sports physical before participating in sports during the school year. Clubs and recreational facilities can also require that participants of all ages complete a sports physical.
Even if you are not required to schedule a sports physical, you should consider doing so anyway to be on the safe side and limit your risk of injuries. Getting an all-clear to participate in a sport you like provides peace of mind, and if you have not had a medical check-up in a while, a sports physical can be an effective first step.
