Sports medical check

You want to be athletic? Before the start of the training, the doctor checks your health, resilience and fitness level and creates an individual training program.

Sports medical check

The aim of the sports medical check-up is to identify diseases and risk factors that could be dangerous for a physically active person. The test should help newcomers and recreational athletes in recreational sports, ambitious recreational athletes and competitive athletes to find a suitable sport and the optimal training. This means that in people with existing illnesses, it is important that the sport does no harm. The sports medical check consists of a survey, various technical tests and possibly laboratory tests.

The survey (anamnesis)

It covers existing illnesses and ongoing treatments. In addition, the doctor asks about the previous sports activities and the regular training.

The stress test

The stress test is usually carried out in the form of a bicycle ergometry with stress ECG and blood pressure measurement. For a meaningful test, the burden must be increased to subjective exhaustion. Ergometry also examines blood pressure and exercise ECG for pathological changes such as high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, or signs of constriction of the coronary arteries (CHD).

Healthcare examinations

The basic examination of the sports medical check is the electrocardiogram (ECG). It is also useful to have a blood test to check the function of liver, kidneys, fat (cholesterol, HDL, LDL), and sugar metabolism. However, in young people under the age of 35, the blood test is not necessarily part of the study. ECG and blood sampling are not specific sports medicine measures and can in principle be performed by any general practitioner, general practitioner or internist as a check-up.

Depending on the planned load, age and previous history of the person being examined, the Sports Medicine Check contains further technical examinations, for example a lung function test (spirometry) or an ultrasound examination of the heart (echocardiography). In some cases, the doctor additionally initiates an X-ray examination, a computerized or magnetic resonance tomography.

Assessment of the training condition

The assessment is based on the result of ergometry. The individual performance is compared to a normal value, which is derived using tables of gender, height, weight and age. The training state is therefore given as a percentage. For example, 130 percent or just 85 percent of normal. The training condition can be used to assess whether the condition is sufficient for personal projects and goals (for example, for a four-hour marathon or for a longer trekking tour).

    ... are anything but pleasant - Swarms of bloodthirsty mosquitoes fall over the athletes as soon as they get out of the mud bath again. The best fairing does not help!

Assessment of the quality of the previous training

If the training has methodological errors or is too much overall, the training state is significantly worse than expected on the basis of the training. This can be estimated by comparing the previous training with the measured training condition. In such cases, the training can be optimized by appropriate advice.

Creation of an individual training program

The training program includes the personal training heart rate, information on the individually appropriate amount of training for the beginning of the training as well as the systematic increases in the extent of training until reaching the personal training goal. This can be a multi-month or even multi-year program.
