Medical & athletic screening appointments involve routine or baseline assessments prior to participation in sport or at the start of a season. Anyone who is considering commencing an exercise regime or who competes in high level sport in Dubai or internationally would benefit from this kind of assessment. In addition, older athletes, those with medical problems or recovering from illness or injury would also benefit as screening can aid development of a personalised, safe and progressive exercise programme.
Tests can cover a number of areas including cardiac, concussion, musculoskeletal and biomechanical assessments as well as blood tests, electrocardiograms (ECGs) and sometimes further imaging such as X-ray or ultrasound, and are designed to reduce the risk of injury and ill health by identifying and addressing any problems at an early stage. Our sports medicine doctors usually conduct medicals at our clinic and take up to 90 minutes to complete; for teams or larger groups we can visit team grounds to conduct screening.
