What’s Included in a Boxing medical?

During a boxing medical, the physical examination is a critical component. The doctor will begin by assessing your overall physical health. This includes checking your weight, height, and body mass index (BMI). They will also measure your blood pressure and pulse to ensure your cardiovascular system is in good condition.

Next, the doctor will examine your eyes, ears, nose, and throat to identify any potential issues that could affect your ability to box safely. They will also conduct a thorough examination of your musculoskeletal system, including your joints, muscles, and bones, to ensure there are no injuries that could be exacerbated by boxing.

Finally, the doctor may perform a neurological examination to check your reflexes, coordination, and overall nervous system health. This comprehensive physical examination helps ensure that you are fit and ready to step into the ring.

Vision and Hearing Tests

During a boxing medical, vision and hearing tests are essential to ensure a boxer’s sensory functions are intact. The vision test typically involves reading from an eye chart to check for visual acuity. The doctor will also look for any signs of eye conditions like glaucoma or cataracts, which could impair your ability to see clearly in the ring.

The hearing test involves assessing your ability to hear different frequencies and volumes. The doctor may conduct a pure-tone audiometry test, where you’ll wear headphones and indicate when you hear sounds at various pitches and volumes. Good hearing is crucial for boxers to respond to their coach’s instructions and be aware of their surroundings during a match.

Ensuring optimal vision and hearing helps in maintaining overall performance and safety in the ring.

Neurological Assessment

A neurological assessment is a vital part of the boxing medical to ensure the safety and readiness of the boxer. During this assessment, the doctor will evaluate your nervous system to detect any abnormalities that could affect your performance or increase the risk of injury.

The doctor will check your reflexes by tapping various points on your body with a small hammer to see if your muscles respond appropriately. Coordination tests, such as walking in a straight line or touching your nose with your finger, help determine your balance and motor skills.

These tests ensure that your brain and nervous system are functioning well, which is crucial for reacting quickly and accurately in the ring. A thorough neurological assessment helps ensure you are fit to compete safely.

Drug and Urine Testing

In addition to the standard tests included in a boxing medical, we also offer drug and urine testing services. These tests are available for an additional cost and can be crucial for boxers who need to meet specific regulatory or contractual requirements.

Another important test is the Electrolyte Panel, which evaluates levels of essential minerals like sodium, potassium, and calcium in your blood. Imbalances in these electrolytes can affect muscle function and overall performance, making it vital to monitor their levels closely. Please call us for more information on electrolyte panel screening.

Comprehensive Drug Testing

Drug testing is designed to detect the presence of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) and other prohibited substances that could compromise the fairness and safety of the sport. Our drug testing service involves a thorough screening process conducted by experienced professionals, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

Urine Analysis

Urine testing is another essential component, often used to detect substances that may not show up in blood tests. It also helps in identifying conditions like kidney problems, dehydration, and other metabolic issues that could affect your health and performance.
