Before they start a new sports season, children need to be assessed by professional sports doctors to make sure they can participate in sports activities. This is done with the help of sports physicals, exams that successfully determine the child’s medical condition and competence for particular sports.
The exam consists of a medical history part, where the parents are asked to fill in a questionnaire about medical conditions running in the family, previous general surgery operations, fractures, medications, allergies, and illnesses. During the physical part of the exam, the doctor will check the child’s height and weight, take its blood pressure and pulse, tests the vision, check all major organs, and evaluate the posture and overall flexibility.
During childhood, children often break bones in their upper and lower extremities because they are constantly on the move. Although it can be a stressful situation for both the child and its parents or caregivers, it’s important to react promptly and avoid any further complications.

Sports injuries are a common thing among children who are physically active and play sports. These injuries occur when two children collide during a sports activity, when they fall on a hard surface, or when they simply train too much. There is no reason to panic because many sports injuries are easily treated and taken care of by professional sports medicine doctors.
Upon admittance, a pediatric general surgeon will assess the child’s condition and take the necessary steps to make sure the injury is treated in a proper manner.
