Sports Physical Day

Our annual Sports Physical Day offers free physical exams to all Mid-Missouri middle and high school students. The next Sports Physical Day will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on July 18 at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute. For an appointment, call 573-884-5122. In addition to basic sports physicals, an optometrist and orthopaedic specialist will evaluate each athlete. A sponsored sports fair with activities and information for parents, coaches and athletes will be provided by the Human Performance Institute. Baseline concussion tests are available upon request.

We also work with MU's Student Recreation Center, providing care for intramural athletes and other recreation center users.
