Bend Memorial Clinic’s Pediatric Department is currently offering well-child visits and sports physicals. Well-child visits are a great way for us to monitor your child’s general health and development. What’s better, if your child is preparing for fall or winter sports, a sports physical is included in their visit. Whether your child is returning to the playground, or reaching their full potential as an athlete, BMC Pediatrics is here to help.
While it may not seem as urgent, a yearly physical exam by your family’s pediatrician is an important part of your child’s health care. Most parents turn to a pediatrician when their child is sick, but it’s important to not overlook scheduling regular well-child checkup appointments, as they are essential to keeping your child healthy. Well-child visits are important to monitor your child’s growth and development, as well as their physical and mental health. With each well-check parents have the opportunity to talk and ask questions about a wide variety of health related topics. Parents can learn everything from their child’s eating and sleeping habits to their language development, as well as discuss any problems their child may be encountering.
If your child is preparing for a fall or winter activity, sports physicals are essential. A sports injury can put your child out for a season, but it can also lead to lifelong negative health implications. As the length of sports seasons increases and the degree of contact intensifies, it’s crucial to help your athlete prevent injury and stay in the game.
