When it comes time for your child to participate in team sports, it is especially important to ensure they see a qualified pediatric doctor who can ensure they are healthy enough to run and play. At Pediatric Associates of Frisco, we are committed to helping children and their families stay safe and healthy all year long, and that includes performing annual physical exams and specialized check-ups for school-age athletes. Our qualified pediatricians can provide your child with the care and protection they need to stay healthy throughout the school year, including while they play sports.
Your child’s health and safety are our priority. We are committed to providing the highest quality medical care available for children up to 18 years of age. We are open Monday-Saturday, so you can visit our office when it is convenient for your family. We strive to offer the best healthcare to every family in the Frisco area. Your child deserves the highest quality of care, and they deserve to receive it in a pediatric office that is compassionate and calm. At Pediatric Associates of Frisco, we understand that a trip to the doctor’s office can be upsetting for young children, which is why we work hard to reduce the stress you and your family will face when visiting our office.
A physical exam is a very simple and non-invasive procedure. Your pediatrician will begin by recording important information including your child’s blood pressure, weight, and height. We will take a full medical history to make sure we have a complete picture of your child’s health. Your child’s doctor will also conduct an assessment of their abdomen, heart, throat, lungs, ears, and nose. There are other age-appropriate evaluations that your child may undergo including those for posture and joint articulation, as well as vision and hearing.
Annual physical exams are an important part of ensuring your child’s continued health and wellness. By having an experienced pediatrician evaluate your child on a regular basis, you can increase the chances of your doctor noticing any potential health issues before they become more serious. Regular physicals can help your pediatrician keep your child healthy by allowing for early diagnosis and intervention for any potential problems, including asthma and scoliosis. Sports physicals make sure that your child is healthy enough for strenuous physical activity. In addition to physical exams, Pediatric Associates of Frisco also provide a comprehensive range of age-appropriate vaccinations that can protect your child from preventable diseases.
