LRMC sports physicals begin July 29

by Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs

The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Pediatric Department will be conducting sports physicals for children ages 5 to 17 years old on Wednesdays, beginning July 29 through the end of August.

Those interested need to complete the sport physical history form appropriate for your child.

The forms can be obtained in the pediatric clinic or electronically on the LRMC Pediatric Clinic website at Links for the forms are hyperlinked within this same announcement on the web page.

If your child is participating in high school sports, you must only fill out the first two pages of the Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Physical Examination form.

If your child is participating in any Child, Youth and School Services-run sports or activities, you must complete the Child, Youth, and School Services Health Assessment and Sports Physical form found on the Kaiserslautern Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation page in the “Registration and Forms” section located about halfway down the page. Once there, click on “Health Assessment.”

The completed form must be returned to the pediatric clinic so an appointment can be scheduled. You may bring the form into the clinic or you can use Relay Health to upload the completed form.

Once the form is received and an appointment has been made, staff will provide you with any additional forms or requirements that are to be completed prior to the visit. This information is based on your child’s age.

LMRC Pediatric Department is trying to streamline the process and appreciates your patience with the added steps. Your assistance prior to the visit will allow the pediatric department to keep the appointment to 30 minutes or less. As time allows, the pediatric department will offer medication refills but no medication adjustments or management of chronic medical problems.

If your child requires immunizations, you will be directed to the LRMC Allergy and Immunization Clinic to receive them. High school athletes will be prioritized when demand dictates.
