What is the difference between an annual wellness exam and a sports physical?  

An annual wellness exam monitors the growth and health of a child or adolescent. During a well-child (or well-adolescent) exam, a physician or advanced nurse practitioner will perform several tests and checks to obtain the child’s progress. A sports physical specifically monitors the youth’s health and physical condition in relation to a specific sport that they want to participate in. This helps to ensure that he or she is fit and capable in participating. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children age 3 and older have a wellness exam every year. Children under 3 should have well-child exams more frequently.
