If you’re looking to play a sport in a league or in a Holbrook, Randolph and Weymouth, MA area school, it’s imperative that you get a sports physical. It’s required that a medical professional perform the physical before registration or the beginning of the school sports season. The purpose of the physical is to be sure everyone who participates is physically able to do so which keeps all participants as safe as possible.
If you get this kind of physical you’ll see that it’s broken into two distinct sections: a report that shows your medical history and a routine physical that’s given by a certified physician. The results of these two areas are used when determining your overall health, and ability to safely compete in league or school sports.
