Many professional drivers are required to have physicals on a regular basis. Our certified practitioner makes it easy for commercial drivers to fulfill Department of Transportation (DOT) regulatory requirements.
Nerve Conduction Studies
A nerve conduction study (NCS), also called a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test, is a measurement of the speed of conduction of an electrical impulse through a nerve. An NCS can determine nerve damage and destruction. This test can be used to determine a variety of different medical conditions that may or may not need a further workup. We do this on an outpatient basis and offer this study at least once monthly on campus.
School Sports Physicals
In the sports medicine field, a sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it's safe for you to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a sports physical isn't required, doctors still highly recommend having one. As past of our commitment to the youth in our community, we proudly offer FREE sports physicals on three different dates during the summer months.
