Synergy Health Partners Orthopedic Urgent Care is pleased to be able to offer pre-participation sports physicals to youth sports athletes at both of our orthopedic urgent cares, located in Livonia and Shelby Township. This is generally a state requirement for athletes between 6-17 years of age in the state of Michigan.
To participate in youth sports in Michigan, you will require a physical check-up from a doctor, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or chiropractor. Obtain the necessary Pre-Participation form from your school, team, our website, or one of our Orthopedic Urgent Care locations. To save time, we recommend filling out the medical history portion of the form before your appointment. This will speed up your appointment process so that you can get back to playing your favorite sports without any delay.
It’s important to know that a sports physical is not the same as your regular annual check-up with your doctor. Youth sports physicals are meant to quickly check for any possible health issues that could impact an athlete’s performance. Our goal is to make sure every athlete is healthy and ready to compete before their season begins.
