Why Get A Sports Physical At SPO?

If you’re a parent of a young athlete, you know what time of year this is: This is the time of year to get your child a sports physical so they’re eligible to participate in sports during the upcoming school year.

This is one more thing you have to do during a summer that’s absolutely packed, so before you forget, check out our information on sports physicals and call to secure a spot for your child to have a sports physical at SPO.

Here’s why that’s such a good idea.

We’ve been doing it for years.

Stevens Point Orthopedics and sports physicals have been linked together for 12+ years.

Because we’ve been doing sports physicals for years, we have the process down to a science. We can be efficient and thorough at the same time, see the maximum number of young athletes, and make it great for everyone.

There’s no substitute for experience in medicine, and that applies to sports physicals as well as anything else.

It’s fast and easy.

Compared to the hassles of finding an available provider, booking many weeks or even months out, spending forever at the desk, waiting in long lines, and so forth, our physicals are super-streamlined and super-easy.

We’ve designed our 15-to-20-minute process with you in mind and even have the appropriate forms on the same page as our sports-physicals information.

We look for injuries.

The object of a sports physical is to determine whether your child is healthy enough to play a sport – so that’s what we focus on.

But because we’re orthopedic providers, we’re trained to spot injuries that may make it difficult or impossible for your young athlete to play sports.

It’s inexpensive.

You bet it’s inexpensive – it’s free.

That’s right: Sports physicals, during our designated sports physical days, are complimentary. They don’t cost you a dime.

We believe that kids should be active, and that organized sports are a great way for them to be active. We offer complimentary sports physicals so that no child will have to stay on the sidelines because they can’t afford a sports physical.

(And while we’re at it: SPO is also a dropoff for Project Fresh Start, so if you have new or spare school supplies you can drop them off when your student-athlete gets their physical.)

We care.

Stevens Point Orthopedics has been here in one form or another since 1968. We’ve not only been caring for your young athletes; we’ve been caring for you, and your parents, and maybe even your grandparents, in the years since we were founded.

We love Stevens Point, we root for the local teams, and we like to show our support in other ways – like by offering complimentary sports physicals.

Without getting unnecessarily sentimental, we show up for Point – and we’re going to keep showing up. We hope to still be doing this when your young athlete is bringing their young athletes to SPO for sports physicals.

Complimentary sports physicals are the best kind of tradition – so why not join in the tradition and sign up today?

Dates and times are:

  • Tuesday, June 25 (3 p.m.-6 p.m.)
  • Friday, July 19 (noon-3 p.m.)
  • Thursday, Aug. 1 (3 p.m.-6 p.m.)

Hope to see you at one of our sports-physical clinics this summer!
