Most parents often take their kids to Sports Physical or Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE) a few days before an athletic tryout or conditioning. While parents may see this as just another box to check, it’s actually more important than that.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and other sports medicine groups recommend annual sports physicals for anyone planning to participate in sports. These physicals ensure that individuals can safely participate in sports and other activities. State laws also require students to have undergone these physicals before participating in any sports. To ensure you comply, schedule an appointment with Nebraska Home Pediatrics. Let us conduct a physical exam to ensure your child can participate safely in sports.
