One service our practice provides but many people are unaware of are the performance of pre-participation sports physicals.  A student must have a physical evaluation each year and be certified as being physically fit to participate in interscholastic athletic programs.  Not everyone considers bringing their child in for a sports physical, but we are a great choice for this function.    The annual physical evaluation must be administered either by a licensed physician, a licensed osteopathic physician, a licensed chiropractic physician, a licensed physician assistant, or a certified advanced registered nurse practitioner.

Dr. Whidden has completed training and certification through the American Chiropractic Board of  Sports Physicians (ACBSP), so we do have advanced training in  interscholastic sports examination and injury treatment.  We routinely perform physical evaluations as required by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) prior to participation in interscholastic sports activities.

Please bring your pre-participation physical forms filled out prior to your appointment.  Download FHSAA Pre-participation physical forms here or go to our Patient Forms page on our website.
