ECG Screenings for Athletes in Miami, FL
ECG screenings have become increasingly popular for athletes – especially those with known heart conditions. ECGs, or electrocardiograms (sometimes also abbreviated as EKGs), measure the electrical activity of the heart. They can help detect issues such as abnormal heart rhythms and enlargement of the heart – issues that can make strenuous exercise difficult or potentially dangerous.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, we provide quality care for athletes of all ages and activity levels. We’re committed to helping every patient achieve their best possible health (and physical performance), and we have a comprehensive range of in-house services that allow us to do exactly that. At our Miami, Florida, urgent care centers, we offer sports physicals, EKGs, X-rays, comprehensive metabolic panels, and other important screenings under one roof. And, no appointments are necessary, making the process even more convenient.
Our physicians offer not only athletic health screenings, but also personalized recommendations for treatment and preventive care. A heart condition doesn’t necessarily preclude a person from participating in his or her favorite sport, but it does mean that certain precautions may be necessary – and our physicians can help our patients determine exactly what those precautions might be. We diagnose and treat a wide range of non-life-threatening issues, and our patients can trust that we’ll provide them with the answers that they need.
