The medical needs of our soccer players deserve a proactive approach. This year, when you're scheduling your medical sports physicals, consider the medical team at Sporti Pediatrics, Sports and Dance Medicine (gosporti.com).
Unlike any other medical office in the area, Sporti has medical sports exams that include nutritional planning, review of psychological development, and personalized exercise programs that maximize performance while minimizing the risk for sports injuries.

Annual Sports Physical (covered with medical insurance)
All appointments include a sports-focused physical exam, a review of psychological development, and a nutritional program based on an athlete’s competitive schedule. Each visit qualifies as an annual wellness exam covered through your medical insurance policy.
The Bioassessment ($30)
Add a Bioassessment to your annual sports physical to measure strength, balance, and flexibility and how these affect your athlete’s performance. A personalized exercise plan is created to help resolve weaknesses. This 30 minute evaluation is approved for your FSA or HSA account.
Slow-motion video ($50-75)
The slow-motion video is a more accurate tool for measuring the effects of strength, balance, and flexibility on your athlete’s performance. Families receive a slow-motion video of the athlete’s performance, as well as personalized exercises that fix any identified risks for injury. Soccer players benefit from the jumping analysis ($50) or the running analysis on the only pressure sensitive treadmill in greater Nashville ($75). The evaluations are 60 minutes and are approved for your FSA or HSA account.
The Athlete Travel Kit ($75)
For athletes that receive the Annual Sports Physical, a travel kit can be constructed that stores a summary of pertinent medical information. Parents can be confident that when their young athlete travels, up-to-date medical information safely travels with them. It also encourages athletes to participate more in their own healthcare as it contains their nutritional program and exercise prescriptions. Upon receiving all outside medical records, the kit is ready for you two days after the appointment.
Spring time is here and summer is coming! That means weekend tournaments are getting underway. It also means that it’s time to protect yourself and your young athletes from excessive sun exposure on the field. On your next trip to the supermarket you might find yourself scratching your head at the endless selection of sunblocks, tanning lotions, and moisturizers. What will protect my family the best? What does the SPF number indicate? Are there natural options? Read this blog to find out.]
