MedExpress Urgent Care Offering Discounted $20 Sports Physicals 7/24-8/2
This Event Occurred in the Past.
MedExpress Urgent Care is helping young athletes ages 6 and up prepare for the fall sports season with $20 discounted sports physicals for a limited time in the Mankato MedExpress center. MedExpress Urgent Care is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with no appointment necessary. Local athletes and families can walk in at a time that works best for them to receive their sports physical.
The time to prepare for the fall sports season is in the summer. Most sports organizations require that a sports physical be completed prior to the first practice. A sports physical is an important step toward making sure athletes are ready for the activities ahead. Sports physicals raise awareness of any issues that may interfere with a child’s ability to participate in a sport safely. Healthcare professionals at MedExpress will check the athlete’s vitals, including pulse and blood pressure, as well as height and weight. Sports physicals include a brief eye exam, a review of the athlete’s medical history, and a fitness check that examines the body for areas that might be prone to injury, such as joints. Parents are encouraged to bring a list of medications, recent illnesses, surgeries, or conditions, such as asthma. Parents should also bring any applicable sports physical forms provided by a sports organization.
