Sports physicals for High School athletes require Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) forms to be completed. Several forms are involved:
Form 157a – The Annual Preparticipation Physical Evaluation: To be completed and signed by the student athlete, parent/guardian, and the physician;
Form 157b – Annual Preparticipation Physical Examination: To be completed by the examining physician;
Form 157c – Mild Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion Statement and Acknowledgment: To be signed by the student-athlete and parent/guardian.
These physicals are relatively brief and result in a minimum of discomfort. An EKG is generally not required but may be requested by a parent/guardian.
Sports Physicals for Community College Athletes are only slightly more comprehensive than a High School physical. Some colleges or college districts may have special documents which need to be completed, and many colleges or districts require an EKG as part of the physical.
Camp Physicals generally match the physical exam provided for high school student-athletes, but without the AIA paperwork (unless specifically requested).
Executive Physicals are intended for business leaders who need a head-to-toe assessment. We start with blood work and assess the head, eye, ears, nose, and throat, then work our way down to feet and toes, addressing heart, lungs, GI and urinary systems and more. We will review the medical records of other providers and add what is necessary to complete the assessment.
