KENNETH FINE, MD THE PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL
The Orthopaedic Center EVALUATION (PPE) is a screening examination that is administered
Rockville, Maryland
to athletes prior to beginning a sports season. Although a medical evaluation
would be potentially beneficial prior to beginning any new athletic activity,
formal PPEs are currently mandated specifically for school and collegiate
interscholastic sports as well as most professional, national, and international
sports. Most recreational and club sports organizations do not require PPEs
and of course there are no requirements for informal recreational activities.
