    What Is a Sports Physical?

    In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a pre-participation physical examination. The exam helps determine whether it's safe for you to participate in a certain sport. North Carolina actually requires that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season.
