Brooks Family YMCA Partnership
SPECTRUM Physical Therapy and the new Brooks Family YMCA are partnering to provide new opportunities for the Charlottesville Community to reach their health and wellness goals for 2018. Every month, SPECTRUM Physical Therapists will be conducting free injury and wellness screenings at the beautiful new YMCA building in McIntire Park.
Each screening takes about 15 minutes and will be conducted by a licensed and experienced physical therapist. Recommendations for further follow up might include a referral to your primary care doctor or a specialist, physical therapy, or coordination with a qualified YMCA personal trainer to help you get the best outcomes out of your exercise, without injury.
This month’s screening is scheduled for Monday, January 15th with slots open between 7 pm and 9 pm. If you are a Brooks Family YMCA member or would like to learn more about joining, you can register for your free screening at the YMCA, or contact your local SPECTRUM Physical Therapy clinic to schedule a free screening there.
Darcy Higgins, DPT will be conducting the screening Monday evening. Darcy Higgins is the Director of Operations for SPECTRUM Physical Therapy out-patient clinics and is also the Clinic Director of the Forest Lakes-Hollymead Clinic. He has been a member of the SPECTRUM Physical Therapy team since 1990.
Darcy treats patients with progressive orthopedic soft tissue and joint mobilization along with individualized therapeutic exercise, fitness and wellness education. His special interests include “hands-on” manual therapy, trigger point dry needling techniques and evidence-based practice for the treatment of back, neck and extremity issues and the management of sports and work injuries with the integration of holistic functional training.
His practice focus includes transitioning patients to fitness and recreational activities while providing coordinated care with SPECTRUM Physical Therapy’s community wellness partners.
