At Trinity Health, our pediatricians will complete sports physical forms and address other aspects of your child’s health including:

  • Immunizations
  • Medications
  • Acne
  • BMI

The exam is also an opportunity to bring up any health concerns, even if they are unrelated to sports.

Wellness visits help to track growth and developmental milestones; to give parents and pediatricians the opportunity to discuss any concerns about a child’s health; and to get children scheduled for vaccinations to prevent illnesses like measles, whooping cough (pertussis), and other serious diseases.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and Joint Committee on Infant Hearing suggest that children should get their hearing checked at ages 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10, and then, due to an increased risk of hearing loss secondary to unprotected noise exposure, at ages 13 and 15. However, as hearing screening may not be performed in all school districts, parents are encouraged to consider having hearing checks prior to the start of the new school year.

A comprehensive eye and vision exam, conducted by an optometrist, can detect and test for a full range of disorders that affect children’s learning.

All children should be examined prior to age five. “Even if a child should pass a vision screening, they should receive a comprehensive eye exam if they show signs or symptoms of a vision problem, are not achieving up to their potential, or are spending excessive time and effort to achieve academically even minimally,” the AOA said.
