The sports medical examination for obtaining a sports medical certificate attesting to a patient’s fitness to engage in competitive or non-competitive sports activity is essential to protect and evaluate the athlete’s physical health.
The certificate for sports fitness is issued by the Sports Physician, a professional with expertise in various areas such as pulmonology, cardiology, endocrinology, physiatry and orthopedics.
The Sports medical certificate for fitness for sports activities, which is issued following the examination, has Annual validity. As for the sports medical certificate for non-competitive activity, at the examination stage the patient undergoes a general checkup that includes the electrocardiogram at rest and the Blood pressure measurement.
At the examination stage, should the Sports Physician deem it necessary, he or she may prescribe more in-depth examinations to better assess the patient’s condition before issuing the certificate attesting to the patient’s fitness for the sports activity practiced or to be practiced.
