Providing friendly, compassionate care is second nature at West Covina Family Medical Center and we want our office experiences to be as pleasant as possible. We have excellent resources to prevent, diagnose, treat, and support sports injuries for patients at any age. Research shows that playing sports helps keep kids fit, and it’s a fun way for them to socialize and make friends. You might wonder why it’s so important for kids to get a sports physical at the beginning of their sports season. A sports physical exam or pre-participation physical examination helps to determine whether it’s safe for kids to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. Even if a sports physical isn’t required, the professionals at West Covina Family Medical Center still highly recommend getting one.
