It’s nearly back to school season, which means you’ve got lots to do to prepare your student-athlete for a new academic year and sports season. Your to-do list likely includes new sneakers and sports equipment, sign-ups for tryouts, and obtaining the required sports physical. To help busy parents send their student-athlete back to school and onto the field safely, throughout August BestMed is offering $25 sports physicals at any of our clinic locations throughout Lane and Douglas Counties.
Depending on your insurance coverage, obtaining your school’s required sports physical may be costly, which is why BestMed is offering appointments at only $25 to help ensure every student-athlete can receive an affordable physical with a trusted health care team. Even if you’re not already a BestMed patient, you can still take advantage of this limited-time offer at any of our 14 clinic locations. Please note that students under 18 must have parental consent.
Annual sports physicals ensure your child is healthy enough for athletic competition. During the exam, our health care team will perform an exam to identify potential health risks that may restrict or prohibit your son or daughter’s ability to safely participate in athletics. Such conditions may include a previous bone, joint, or muscle strain or sprain, a previous concussion, or a previously undiagnosed chronic health condition such as asthma or a bleeding disorder. Sports physicals also give you and your child a dedicated and safe setting to discuss health risk and concerns with our team before heading back to school and deciding what sports to pursue throughout the year.
To celebrate the final days of summer, we also invite all members of our community to attend our upcoming Community Open Houses at our Pleasant Hill location on Friday, August 2 and our Junction City location on Friday, August 6 from 2 to 6 p.m. Our events will offer free hot dogs, cotton candy, games, and your chance to win a ticket to the Oregon Jamboree or a two-night stay at Shilo Inn.
Our $25 sports physical appointments are filling up. Schedule your appointment, or walk-in to any of our urgent care centers today and start your new school year and sports season off safely.
