Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Orthopedics and Sports Medicine will provide sports physicals for fall and spring sports to high school athletes on Saturday, May 14, at the McNeese Recreational Complex.
Student athletes will have their blood pressure, pulse, height, weight, upper and lower extremities, and flexibility checked by a volunteer army of nurses, nursing students, athletic trainers, and student athletic trainers prior to their physical examinations, which will be conducted by Memorial physician specialists and resident physicians, who are also volunteering their time for the event.
Teams from Cameron, Calcasieu and Beauregard parishes have designated appointments to ensure the accuracy and timely completion of the exams. Athletes must complete a medical history form prior to arrival, and will be issued a physical examination form upon check-in. To defray the cost of supplies for the physical, there is a $5 fee per athlete examined.
