Morton Plant Mease offers sports physicals

PALM HARBOR – Morton Plant Mease’s sports medicine program will offer free sports physicals assistance to student athletes in Pinellas County.

The schools require sports physicals before athletes can get on the field for a new season.

Morton Plant Mease physicians, certified trainers and physical therapists will provide checks of height, weight, blood pressure, vision, lungs and the musculoskeletal system.

The free sports physicals will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday, May 3, 8 a.m. to noon, at Palm Harbor University High School, 1900 Omaha St., Palm Harbor.

All student athletes are required by the Florida High School Athletic Association to complete a physical evaluation before participating in high school sporting activities. A parent or legal guardian must accompany student athletes under the age of 18, or registration forms must be pre-signed. Student athletes are asked to bring or wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, if they use them. The exams done by Morton Plant Mease are complimentary; however, a small fee may be required by some schools to support their booster clubs.

For information about the free sports physicals event, call 462-7861.

If a student athlete is found to have a medical condition and needing additional treatment, they will be referred to a Morton Plant Mease specialist for follow-up at a later date.

The annual sports physicals are part of the athletic training outreach program, which is a partnership between Morton Plant Mease Health Care and the Pinellas County School System. Morton Plant Mease’s sports medicine program also partners with Pinellas County Schools to offer concussion screenings for student athletes at some schools as part of the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing program.
