Nate Wiechmann, D.C., will be offering sports physicals to student athletes at Riverside High School on Tuesday, July 24, from 5-8 p.m. The cost will be $25 each, and a portion of all proceeds will go directly back to the school.
According to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, athletic injuries account for about 20 percent of all injury-related emergency visits for kids ages six to 19. Sports physicals can uncover hidden dangers prior to the start of the season, which helps keep athletes safe on and off the field.
As an ART® Provider and ACE® Certified Personal Trainer, Dr. Wiechmann specializes in treating and assessing student athletes. During each sports physical, he checks for the following:
- Muscle imbalance
- Joint pain or tenderness
- Curvature of the spine
- Problems with reflexes
All students in grades 7-12 participating in athletics must complete a sports physical prior to the season to address medical conditions and modify training plans. If you haven’t scheduled your child’s sports physical for the 2018-2019 school year, this is a great opportunity to identify potential areas of concern and help keep your child safe.
