What We Do

Your Baxter Medical provider will perform a thorough evaluation of your child’s medical history and physical health. If no issues are found, your provider fills out and signs the release for your child’s sports program.

In some instances, they may call for a follow-up visit, additional testing, or other measures to make it safer for your child to participate.

A Thorough Exam for Health and Safety

A sports physical near Brainerd, or pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE), typically includes an evaluation of your child’s medical history and a physical examination. 

Questions we ask about medical history include:

  • medical problems and illnesses, such as asthma, diabetes, or COVID-19
  • previous hospitalizations or surgeries
  • allergies (to insect bites, for example)
  • past injuries (including concussions, sprains, or broken bones)
  • whether the child has ever passed out, felt dizzy, had chest pain, or had trouble breathing during exercise
  • medicines (including over-the-counter medicines, dietary supplements, and prescription medicines)

We also ask about smoking and vaping, alcohol, drugs, diet pills, or performance-enhancing supplements, including steroids. We recommend taking time to answer the questions carefully with your child.

During the physical part of the exam, we…

  • record your child’s weight and height
  •  check blood pressure and pulse
  • test their vision
  • check their ears, nose, and throat
  • evaluate their posture, joints, flexibility, and strength
