September is National Little League Month!
While many of us are passively observing America's favorite pastime on the tube, our children are cheerfully participating in a time-honored sport and rite of childhood.
Naturally, every loving parent wants to make sure their child is healthy enough to compete. But the majority of people sometimes assume that because their child is, for lack of a better phrase, just a child, that they’re healthy.
Physicians First Messages wants to remind you that your child is never too young to receive an advanced health screening, just to make sure everything from their heart to brain is functioning normally.
And this is especially true if your son or daughter is on the verge of entering high school and hoping to compete on an athletic team. The truth of the matter is, your child will be running that much harder, competing much more physically and, in some cases, expected to withstand some oft-times serious bumps and bruises!
Simply put, a standard physical is not good enough. Doctors can’t always detect serious underlying problems by just using a stethoscope or checking a pulse.
Concussions, of course, have been a hot topic in recent years from pro to youth athletes. But you shouldn’t wait for a possible concussion to occur before your child gets treated.
Your child’s health is paramount. Before they take the field on their way to fun, fitness, and some serious character-building, Physicians First Messages advises you to take the proper measures to make sure your child is healthy and fit.
