Sports physicals

“Sport is murder,” as they say, and only half in jest. The exertion the body is exposed to during sports can lead to serious illness and, in extreme cases, even to death. This applies in particular, but not exclusively, to the cardiovascular system. It is therefore not only advisable for beginners and those returning to athletics to have their individual fitness checked by a doctor before taking up a (demanding) physical activity. Even active athletes who repeatedly expose their bodies to great athletic strain should regularly check that there are no hidden dangers for their bodies.

The physical is generally divided up into the following sections:

  • Discussion of anamnesis
  • Physical examination (general and nutrition condition)
  • Urine analysis
  • Sport medicine consultation

The extended sports physical also includes:

  • Resting state ECG
  • Spirometry (lung function)
  • Exercise electrocardiogram (starting at the age of 40; earlier if anamnesis is apparent)
  • Possible blood test
