Free Sports-injury Screenings Begin Oct. 18 at YMCA of Greenfield

GREENFIELD — Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Department is offering free monthly sports injury screenings at the YMCA of Greenfield, 451 Main St., starting Tuesday, Oct. 18. The clinics will be held on the third Tuesday of each month, 4 to 6 p.m., in the Massage Center or in the Welcome Center office. Each appointment is 15 minutes long. The screenings are open to the public, and participants do not have to be YMCA members.

“If you have some sort of injury that is either ongoing, such as tendinitis, 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,” said Jeff King, manager of Baystate Rehabilitation Services at Baystate Franklin Medical Center. “ We will assess your injury and advise you of the next steps to take to treat the injury.”

Walk-ins are welcome, and no appointment is necessary. For more information on the sports-injury screenings, call Dawn Dorsey at the YMCA at (413) 773-3646, ext. 428.
