Sports and D.O.T. Physicals

Whether you need a physical for sports, camp, or work, we've got you covered. We can even perform DOT physicals.

Physical examinations are often required to participate in organized athletic programs. In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a pre-participation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it's safe for you to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a sports physical isn't required, it is still highly recommend getting one.

All Commercial Motor Vehicle drivers who operate in interstate commerce are required to have a DOT medical certificate based on FMCSA requirements.

Sports Physicals:

  • Review family, social, surgical, and medical health history and immunizations.
  • Perform a thorough physical exam.
  • Complete and stamp required paperwork.

Abscess Drainage: An abscess occurs when pus accumulates beneath the skin, resulting in a nodule. Our staff can resolve abscesses using incisions or antibiotics.

Cysts: Cysts can occur due to genetic factors or infection. Cysts appear similar to blisters, but they may contain gaseous or semisolid material. If you have a painful cyst, our staff may use aspiration or removal to treat the issue.

Lesions: We perform surgical incisions to remove abnormal growths, or lesions.

Skin Infections: Skin infections may require an incision or drainage.

Burns: We treat mild to severe burns. Treatment procedure includes removal of devitalized tissue and blisters.

Subungual Hematoma: A condition in which there is bleeding under the fingernail or toenail. Usually caused by a crush injury, a subungual hematoma can cause symptoms such as intense pain and throbbing as blood collects under the nail.

Do not attempt to address these conditions on your own beyond basic wound cleaning. Contact our staff for professional treatment.
