Back to School: Screenings To Get Your Child Ready for Fall Sports

The first day of school is just around the corner, which means many student athletes will be starting practice for sports such as football or cross country. But training too hard in the Florida heat can be dangerous. In this interview with First Coast Living, Dr. Moussa discusses the potential symptoms of heart problems and how you can get your athlete screened before school starts.

If your child is experiencing symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or fainting during exercise, or if you have a family history of high blood pressure or heart disease, call our office at 904-493-3333 to book an EKG and an echocardiogram. Even if your child is not experiencing these symptoms, make sure to get a physical exam done before starting any vigorous exercise or sports team.
