Physicals for Athletes In Yuba City & Surrounding Cities
Every sport carries some degree of risk of getting hurt. For students who decide to participate in organized sports, it’s important to have them examined by a medical professional to ensure they are healthy and ready to join the student sports program.
At Yuba Sutter Chiropractic, we are proud to offer comprehensive sports physicals for all local athletes in Yuba City, Marysville, Plumas Lake and Wheatland to make sure they are adequately prepared before the season starts.
Why See A Chiropractor for a Sports Physical?
You’ve probably heard of situations where a student-athlete suffers from a devastating injury like a torn ACL. Injury prevention is essential for anyone who participates in sports or regular physical activity. How can this be done? Through a sports physical prior to the beginning of the sports pre-season. The primary goal of this evaluation is to promote the safety of the athlete by evaluating their health, fitness level, risk of injury and physical wellbeing.
Sports physicals help in the prevention of injury, fractures, and strains throughout the school year. When conducted by a professional chiropractor like Dr. Gurj Kalay, you’ll get a clearer picture of current and future issues that might keep the athlete out of the game or affect performance.

What We Do for Sports Physicals
During your child’s sports physical appointment, Dr. Gurj Kalay will evaluate your child’s overall health by conducting a variety of assessments in cardiovascular health, neurological function, muscle strength, and biomechanics. Based on the results, Dr. Kalay will let you know if you’re ready for sports or give specific guidelines to address any potential problem and help you avoid a sports-related problem before your season starts.
A sports physical is a great way to learn more about your child’s body. You can easily identify pre-existing conditions that may interfere with your child’s ability to compete or train. Besides a thorough sports physical, your chiropractor can also provide nutritional advice and injury prevention tips to keep an athlete in top form all through the season. If chiropractic care is deemed not appropriate for your condition and your student-athlete doesn’t pass the physical the first time, a referral to another physician may be warranted.
Getting a Physical from a Chiropractor
At Yuba Sutter Chiropractic, we encourage our young athletes to have a sports physical performed on an annual basis. Anyone starting a new exercise routine or sport should always consider setting up an appointment with a chiropractor to learn more about ways they could be prone to injury and get tips and exercises to do to avoid future problems. It’s evident that a chiropractic exam is a lot more in-depth than your standard sports physical, and the sooner your kids get a complete sports physical, the better.
