Pre-Participation Sport Screenings at Monroe Clinic-Freeport Clinic

STATELINE (WIFR) -- With school athletics, summer leagues and athletic camps just around the bend, it’s a great time for students to get a pre-participation screening. These screenings help address any health issues or injuries that could be corrected during the summer months in preparation for the next sports season.

Monroe Clinic-Freeport Clinic will host pre-participation screenings on Tuesday, May 28 from 3–5 p.m. To schedule a screening, call 815-235-1406. The cost is $20 cash, credit or check payable at time of screening. Insurance is not billed.
Pre-participation screenings do not replace complete physicals. To fully address adolescent health issues, incoming ninth grade students are not eligible to receive a pre-participation screening and should receive a full school physical.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and The American Academy of Family Physicians recommend that children and adolescents receive a routine health exam every two years after kindergarten. There are also a variety of state and school requirements for routine and sports physicals.
