It happens every school year: Kids are all ready to try out for cheerleading, football, volleyball, wrestling or some other sport when they're told they first have to complete a pre-participation physical examination or PPE. If your kids are facing this roadblock, rest assured that you can get your sports physicals in Glendora quickly and affordably -- right here at our chiropractic office.
Even if the young athletes in your family appear to be the picture of health, there are still plenty of reasons for them to receive sports physicals before trying out for the team -- in addition to the fact that your school is requiring them as mandatory procedures. That's because a variety of health challenges may be lurking underneath that healthy surface, and the extreme exertion of athletic competition could bring them out into the open, possibly with tragic results.
If you're surprised to learn that our Glendora chiropractor offers sports physicals, don't be. Chiropractors are indeed among a select group of health care professionals deemed qualified to administer such physicals. It makes sense when you realize that a chiropractor must complete the same basic medical training as a general physician, in addition to receiving the specialized education necessary to practice chiropractic care. Better yet, our chiropractor's comprehensive knowledge of joint anatomy, function, and injuries is invaluable when it comes to diagnosing musculoskeletal alignment problems and symptoms that may relate to an old injury. Best of all, establishing a baseline for your young athlete's health makes it that much easier for us to recognize, treat or prevent future sports injuries through ongoing care. If a condition is found that rules out participation, we can help your child understand that it's better to know and dodge misfortune than to experience tragedy during an event.
