Every athlete deserves to have a physical that truly prepares them for the sports season, not a quick appointment whose only result is a piece of paper with a signature. That’s why we offer our Comprehensive Sports Physicals at one competitive price!
What a Sports Physical Includes:
Sports Health Risk Assessment
We use this screening tool to collect your or your child's health information, allowing us to predict and target potential health risks before they become a problem.
An electrocardiogram monitors the heart's electrical activity to help determine if a person has undiagnosed cardiac abnormailities
Urine Dipstick Test
Screening tool used to assess kidney function
Baseline Concussion Testing
Includes a check for concussion symptoms, as well as balance and cognitive assessments
Virtual Access to our dedicated sports health physician
Following your child's physical, they will have virtual access to our dedicated sports health physician for the duration of their sports season.
Completion of all school or league paperwork
Includes Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if needed
Preventive care is a highly beneficial methodology for anyone’s health, but for athletes, it can mean the difference between playing a full season and being sidelined by an injury or underlying condition.
The primary goal of the Connected Heart Program is to identify athletes who have undiagnosed or unrecognized cardiovascular abnormalities that place them at a higher risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Similarly to our Sports Physical, the Connected Heart Program includes:
An in-depth physical exam and EKG (electrocardiogram)
But what makes this program unique is the additional Echocardiogram which uses ultrasound waves to produce a visual display used for the diagnosis or monitoring of heart abnormalities.
"I checked off the box, I had both of my kids do the Connected Health Sports Physical and the Connected Heart Program. It was so worth it! Very comprehensive. I am so glad I did it!!"'
Even if your league or school does not require certain documentation that your doctor can fill out at a physical, having a comprehensive exam prior to the sports season can prevent you or your child from becoming injured or triggering an undetected condition that puts them at risk while they play.
Following one of our sports physicals, you and your family will have full access to our dedicated sports medicine specialist via phone, text, and video.
An Electrocardiogram is an important screening tool to check your child's heart as it beats and blood moves through it. Abnormal results may mean there is a problem with your child's heart. Connected Health physicians believe a sports physical should include a screening of an athlete's heart in order to clear them for play.
No. An Electrocadiogram (EKG) is a painless test that measures the electical activity of the heart.
An Echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart to show how your child's heart muscles and valves are working. It's like an X-ray but without radiation. This test is used in children to diagnose or rule out heart abnormalities.
Our program goal is to identify athletes who have an undiagnosed or unrecognized cardiovascular abnormality that place them at a higher risk for SCA (sudden cardiac arrest).
No. You will not feel anything during the test except some coolness from the gel and slight pressure from the transducer.
Our medical team is passionate about comprehensive care and believe all young people should have an in-depth heart exam as part of regular physical examinations. No young life should be lost becuase of an undiagnosed cardiac condition. A Connected Heart Program parent wrote us a blog article on her and her child's experience - we couldn't have said it better ourselves!
Can I use insurance to pay for a Sports Physical or the Connected Heart Program?Connected Health does not participate with any insurance company. These comprehensive evaluations are paid for out of pocket.
