High School Sports Physical Clinic Only $25* on May 25 & 26
Offer includes a Pre-Injury Screening by a Physical Therapist from Evanston Regional Hospital
Every physical completed on these two special days in May raises $10 for UCSD#1.
Sports Physicals will be completed by physicians Richard England, MD or Richard Capener, DO, DC, of Uinta Medical Group.
NOTE: Students must have both consent forms on this page printed out and signed by a parent or guardian to be seen by a healthcare provider.
Pre-Injury Screenings are optional 10-minute movement screenings that help define a student’s movement baseline. This 7-movement pattern screen helps to identify an athlete’s compensatory movements that may reduce performance and increase the risk of injury.
When and Where:
- Wednesday, May 25 from 8 am to 5 pm
- Thursday, May 26 from 8 am to Noon
- Evanston High School Nurses Office
The two consent forms and cash payment must be submitted upon check-in for the physicals. Cash or check (made out to Evanston Clinic Corp) accepted.
Students also need to bring the completed School Physical Exam form which can be found on the school’s website or by following this link.
Consent forms are required upon check-in. The Evanston Regional Hospital (ERH) Consent Form gives permission for the ERH Physical Therapist to complete the 10-minute pre-injury screening which is designed to define a student’s movement baseline. The Uinta Medical Group consent form is required prior to your student being seen for the sports physical exam.
For every person taking advantage of the $25 Cash Pay special for sports physicals completed on May 25 and 26, a $10 donation will be made to UCSD#1. However, if an insurance plan is billed for the sports physical, neither the $25 price nor the $10 school donation can be honored.
Most insurance companies do not pay for sports physicals in the same manner they pay for a wellness physical. Be sure to check with your provider if you have questions about coverage. The $25 price and the ability to offer a rebate to the school are for cash-pay patients only. If insurance is billed for a sports physical, we are regretfully unable to offer the cash-pay price or apply the rebate to the school.
What is a sports physical?
A sport physical is a non-invasive exam that helps healthcare providers determine if the athlete should participate in a specific sport. The provider may look at the patient's medical history and current overall health to make this type of determination. Keep in mind that a sports physical is not the same as a wellness physical. While a sports physical looks for health conditions that could impact the ability of the athlete to play a sport, it doesn’t look at all possible health issues. It is important that students maintain annual exams with primary care providers.
More and more often, sports physicals are required for many sports in both club and school level teams. Physicals are typically good for one (1) year, meaning most sports will require a new physical each season. Please check with your school guidance counselors for more information on which extra curricular activities or clubs may require a sports physical.
