Join Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine primary care sports medicine physician M. Nameer Sidiquee for sports physicals
Houston - August 16, 2016
Playing school sports is a great way for students to get physically active and build life skills such as teamwork and communication. Each year, numerous students participate in school sports and one way to ensure students are performing at their best is through a sports physical, also called a preparticipation physical examination, which provides a detailed look at a student athlete’s health and fitness.

“With any sport there is risk for injury. Sports physicals are highly recommended because the exam provides insight into a student’s past injuries, personal and family medical history,” said M. Nameer Sidiquee, MD, CAQSM primary care sports medicine at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. “The information gathered during the physical gives a better understanding of the risk of potential conditions that can prevent a student from reaching optimal performance,” said Sidiquee.

Join Dr. Sidiquee and a team of physicians on Tuesday, August 23, from 3 – 6 p.m. for sports physicals for all school activities. Physicians who will be attending this event include, Dr. Hardeep “Debbie” Bal, Dr. Sabari Sundarraj and Dr. Pheba Zachariah from Houston Methodist Primary Care Group and Dr. Scott Rand, Dr. Christian Schupp, Dr. Gregory Seelhoefer and Dr. M. Nameer Sidiquee from Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and Houston Methodist Primary Care Group physicians will offer physicals at their offices located on 7105 FM 2920 Road, on the corner of T.C. Jester and FM 2920.

The sports physicals will be offered to athletes ages 12-18. The cost of the physical is $20. Cash only please (no checks or credit cards accepted.) No appointment is necessary. Wear light comfortable clothing. Please bring your school physical form with medical history completed and a signed physical consent form.

“Injuries and diseases can make it unsafe for any athlete to participate in sports. Student athletes’ bodies are still building muscle mass and stronger bones. While playing sports students are putting their bodies through rigorous repetitive muscle contractions over extended periods of time. A sports physical is the first step in helping students prepare for play.”

Dr. Sidiquee is board-certified in sports medicine and family medicine. He is fellowship trained in primary care sports medicine. He treats numerous conditions including
  • Concussions
  • Fractures
  • Sprains and Strains
