What Are Sports Physicals?
Sports physicals are often required when children or teens in Shelbyville, Lexington, Frankfort, and surrounding Kentucky communities start a sport. These are important because they assess any potential risk of the child getting injured or having other health complications while playing. At Jarvis Family Medical Services and J Spa, family nurse practitioner Karla Jarvis offers sports physicals, which include an overall review of your child's health, medical history, and a thorough physical exam. This is different than an annual physical exam and is limited more to how your child's health will relate to sports. Annual physicals are much more extensive. To schedule a sports physical for your child, contact our Louisville, KY office today.
What Can I Expect from My Child's Sports Physical?
Sports physicals typically have two parts — a medical history review and a physical exam. Prior to the exam, we'll ask you to fill out a medical history form that includes questions about family health, medications, previous hospitalizations, surgeries, injuries, and more. We'll go over this with you and your child during the sports physical. During the physical exam, we'll review your child's overall health, as well as their vital signs, height, heart, lungs, weight, vision, and more. We'll also perform a fitness exam to ensure your child can safely play their chosen sport.

I Love Jarvis Medical Services! I am treated just like family every time I step foot in that office!! Keep up the great work!!! THE BOMB.COM OFFICE!!! Erika was awesome!!! Thank you so much for treating me like Family!!
I'm so excited that I made the switch for me and my mother to have Karla Jarvis and associates as our new PCP. From the moment we walked in the office until the time we left, we felt confident in this decision. The staff made us feel so welcomed, the MA and APRN took the time to explain the whole process, and they addressed literally every concern we had. The better part is there was no rush for time. They also explained everything they were doing and why they were doing and I'm glad to have made this choice. Looking forward to improving mine and my mother's health through the hands of Jarvis Family and associates.
