Currently, only 18 states permit doctors of chiropractic to perform sports physicals. The High School Pre-Participation Sports Physicals offered at Northwestern each summer and the data we are able to collect may help establish the rationale for using doctors of chiropractic to perform sports physicals in other states and maintain the ability to perform physicals in Minnesota. We will review the development of sports physicals and discuss what needs to be incorporated to protect the young athlete.
