Health examination guide

A health examination for the purposes of sport and exercise medicine gives an overview of the young athlete’s health. The primary objective of the health examination is to find out whether there are any contra-indications and/or limitations to doing sports. The examination helps identify health risks that can cause injuries, illnesses or sudden death in the future.

The health examination for young athletes targets teenagers aged 19 and under who regularly do sports at least 6 “academic hours” per week in addition to Physical Education lessons at school (“Academic hour” is a term used in Estonian school system. One “academic hour” = 45 minutes). A referral for the health examination is not necessary.

The scope and frequency of health examinations are determined by the number of academic hours trained per week:
