Get Your School & Sports Physical at AFC Short Hills
Each year, millions of children and teenagers participate in organized sports at school or in the community. To avoid being injured on the field, court, or track, it’s important that your young athlete gets examined by one of our providers before they suit up. In many cases, schools and sports leagues require kids to have a sports physical. The objectives of a pre-participation exam (PPE) are to assess the athlete’s present fitness level, evaluate any existing injuries, and detect conditions that may predispose them to new injury.
During the school and/or sports physical exam, the athlete's height, weight, blood pressure and heart rate will be measured. Then after collecting a thorough medical history, our provider will evaluate heart, lungs, abdomen, nose, ears, throat, posture, strength, and flexibility.
Summer Camp Physicals in Short Hills, NJ
Just like the PPE for sports and recreational leagues, your children will likely need one to participate in summer camp and summer-hosted recreational activities. Camp physicals are required to help ensure that your children can safely participate without any major injury or illness risks during their activity. Safety is paramount as children and teenagers can often be exposed to illness and injury during summer camp.
At AFC Urgent Care Short Hills, our providers can comprehensively examine your child to ensure they are healthy enough to participate. Physicals are a necessary way to detect any underlying health conditions and prevent illness early.

Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
