Novant Health House Call: Getting an Athletic Physical


by Kathryn Searles

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- March is a busy month for physicians as teens roll in for sports physicals. It's an important part of getting ready for the new athletic season. 

Dr. Eric Warren, of Novant Health, is making a house call to Rising to discuss the importance of an athletic physical and what it entails.

Warren says that sports physicals focus on whether someone can perform in sports, rather than disease prevention measures.

NC state law requires up-to-date physicals to participate in school sports.
