What is a Sports Physical?
A sports physical exam is important not just for club or school related organized sports, but for all kinds of activities. Does your child want to get into cycling? How about rock climbing or hiking? Is the family making a healthy change and starting a new exercise program together? If so, a sports physical can help. A sports physical is a specialized type of check-up to make sure your child is healthy enough to participate safely in all kinds of activities.
We do not bill insurance for our sports physical exams, although we do offer highly competitive pricing.

Pacific Crest Children’s Urgent Care is the best place in Portland to get sports physicals on a walk-in or appointment basis for your child, adolescent, or young adult. Our athletic physical exams focus on:
- Chronic or significant health history
- Medications and allergies

- History of sports participation and any associated problems with exercise
- Family history, especially of unusual heart conditions such as heart attacks in young people or heart rhythm problems
- Vital signs including blood pressure
- Head to toe physical exam
Covering All the Bases
An EKG (electrocardiogram - or heart rhythm test) is sometimes part of a sports physical exam. In the United States, we recommend an EKG if there is a concerning history with either your child or your family regarding heart issues. Outside of the US, other countries such as Italy, recommend EKG screening for everyone. We never refuse an EKG if a parent asks for one.
