The clinics will be held on the third Tuesday of each month, 4 – 6 pm, in the Massage Center or in the Welcome Center office. Each appointment is 15 minutes long. The screenings are open to the public; you do not have to be a YMCA member to attend.
Jeff King, DPT, MTC, CSCS, manager, Baystate Rehabilitation Services at Baystate Franklin Medical Center, said, “If you have some sort of injury that is either ongoing, such as tendonitis, or something that has just occurred, and you’re not sure how to treat it or where to seek help, this clinic is for you. We will assess your injury and advise you of the next steps to take to treat the injury.”
Walk-ins are welcome; no appointment is necessary. For more information on the Sports Injury screenings, contact Dawn Dorsey, YMCA, 413-773-3646, ext. 428.
