School, Sports, & Camp Physicals in North Andover, MA
Often many different sports, camp, and school organizations may require a complete physical examination of a child before the child can participate. These are known as pre-participation exams or more commonly sports and camp physicals.
These routine exams are often used to measure the child’s ability to participate in the activities and if the child may be prone to further injury if they participate. Sometimes there is a form to be filled out that the organization may require.
