From new backpacks to gym shoes, it’s time to start checking some important items off your teen’s back-to- school list. Often that includes scheduling a physical, too.
Many teens need a sports physical in order to play. For all teens, a comprehensive annual physical is a key part of routine healthcare, experts say. Physicians at Centegra Physician Care have your family covered either way. They can provide your teen with a complete physical—which can include a sports exam. Most insurance plans cover this.
Remember, a sports physical shouldn’t replace a comprehensive yearly exam, which addresses your teen’s overall well-being. Comprehensive exams allow the doctor to keep your teen’s immunizations up-to- date and give advice on topics such as healthy living and injury prevention.
Plus, your son or daughter will receive the quality care for which Centegra physicians are known. With so many locations, there’s likely an office near you.
To schedule an appointment, call 815-338-6600 or visit Centegra Physician Care. Convenient evening appointment times are available. Please bring your teen’s immunization records to the appointment.
