You don’t need to be a student or professional athlete to benefit from a sports physical. People of all ages use sports as a fantastic way to stay healthy, make friends, and be active in their community. Oregon offers a rich variety of options for outdoor activities, such as hiking and skiing, and taking advantage of those opportunities requires making sure you’re physically capable of being a weekend warrior or an active part of that intramural league.
Even if you’ve been playing your sport for months or years, an annual sports physical is a great way to spot injuries or vulnerabilities before they can bench you. A number of factors can get in the way of an athlete’s performance. From brittle bones or muscle loss due to age to a strain or sprain that’s on the verge of becoming a tear, oftentimes major injuries seem sudden. However, a trained medical professional has the tools and talent to spy red flags.
Whether you’re gearing up to try out a new club sport at the gym or you’re a student athlete ready to enjoy your best season yet, take care of yourself first. Mend Clinic is open every day of the week and is staffed with on-site orthopedic specialists. Make an appointment online to be seen even faster.
