Ensuring that children are healthy and ready for school activities is a critical aspect of their development and education. At Cermak Immediate Care, we offer thorough school physicals at our locations in Chicago, Cicero, and Roseland. Our goal is to ensure that every child meets the health requirements set by their schools and sports organizations, supporting their safe participation in all school activities.

Why School Physicals Are Important

School physicals are essential not only for fulfilling school enrollment requirements but also for monitoring the growth and development of children and adolescents. These physicals help identify any health issues that may interfere with learning or physical activity. They also provide a great opportunity for parents to discuss any concerns about their child’s health and development with a healthcare professional.

What to Expect During Your School Physical

During a school physical at Cermak Immediate Care, our healthcare providers perform a comprehensive evaluation, which includes:

  • Review of medical history: Including any chronic illnesses, hospitalizations, or past injuries.
  • Physical examination: Assessing the child’s height, weight, vision, hearing, blood pressure, heart, lungs, and overall physical and mental health.
  • Immunization updates: Ensuring that all vaccinations are up to date according to state and school district requirements.
  • Fitness assessment: Evaluating the child’s fitness to participate in school sports and physical education classes.
  • Discussion of health and safety: Providing advice on nutrition, sleep, safety in sports, and preventive measures to maintain good health.

Cermak Immediate Care offers school physicals not just for young children but for students of all ages, including those in high school and college.
