Main Content

The pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE), commonly called a “sports physical”, is required in the state of Minnesota for student athletes. The primary objective of this evaluation is to promote the safety of the athlete. Secondary objectives include injury prevention and performance enhancement. A properly performed sports physical can assess current injuries or conditions that may be of concern or preventing the athlete from participation.

The Minnesota PPE form is valid for three years. An annual health questionnaire is required every year.  Any major health changes on the annual questionnaire may require a PPE to be conducted sooner.  It is our opinion that a properly performed sports physical should be done on an annual basis.  The reason for this is because of rapid changes of the physiology and biomechanical aspects of the adolescent body. The evaluation can screen for those minor and subtle changes and make appropriate treatment and/or training recommendations. 

The PPE evaluation in our office is very thorough. We conduct all the required recommendations of the medical portion of the evaluation. In addition we spend the time to evaluate the overall flexibility and strength of the athlete. We use this information to give recommendations on injury prevention, strength program needs and in some cases direct to the proper diagnosis of a particular injury. When an accurate injury diagnosis is made we can recommend a treatment plan that will expedite the recovery process.

Why choose our office for a sports physical?

Testimonial

I've been to many chiropractors in my life and I can honestly say that Dr. Craig is one of the best. Dr. Craig has helped me with late effects of injuries of my youth and keeps me in shape for my work and recreational activities. I am employed in a physcial therapy department in a Twin Cities hospital. Thanks to Dr. Craig I can stay in good condition to ensure my safety as well as safety of my patients. I could not stay as active without him!
