Preparticipation evaluation of the adolescent athlete. Timing and content of the examination

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The aim of the preparticipation physical examination should be not only to uncover disqualifying conditions but also to screen for conditions that predispose to injury, to assess physical maturation, to determine physical fitness, and to educate the potential athlete regarding injury prevention and proper nutrition. By practicing these techniques, the physician can facilitate safe and healthful participation in organized sports by children and adolescents.
