Most clinics are closed on Sundays, which makes it difficult to know where to get a sports physical in Fayetteville, NC. Fortunately, FastMed in Fayetteville offers sports physicals 365 days a year, even on Sundays and holidays. A sports physical is generally required by a school to determine whether it is safe for a child or teen to participate in sports.
A sports physical usually includes a complete family history, including questions about serious illnesses in the family, previous surgery or hospitalization history, and allergies. A physical exam looks at the height and weight of the patient, their blood pressure and pulse, as well as vision, lungs, ears, throat, nose, and abdomen. The doctor also evaluates the patient’s posture, flexibility, and strength. FastMed Urgent Care accepts most insurances for payment of a physical, and they are open year round for your convenience when most offices are closed.
