Child and Exercise
Physical activity contributes significantly to children’s physical development. However, the participation in organized sports activities may impose certain health risks to the child, if the necessary precautionary procedures are not employed. Therefore, the clinical examination of young athletes is required in order to ensure their physical health and safe participation in sporting events.
A complete examination includes:
1. Full Cardiac Examination
2. Individualized Hematological Examination
3. Assessment of Body Composition Profile and Anthropometric Characteristics
4. Specialized Exercise Test
5. Ocular and Optometric Examination
6. Orthopedic Examination to identify any predisposition to sports injuries
