Partnership with Sentara Continues with New Therapy Center

10 January 2013

On January 7, 2013, a new Sentara Therapy Center opened inside the downtown Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA. The center continues the YMCA’s partnership with Sentara Healthcare to provide YMCA members and non-members access to various treatments by clinically trained physical therapists for back pain, neck pain, or orthopedic injuries affecting the leg, shoulders and hips. For traumatic or orthopedic conditions from the elbow to the hand, Sentara offers the specialized care of an occupational therapist who is a certified hand therapist. Additionally, the center offers massage therapy with a certified massage therapist.

YMCA members will receive the added benefit of complimentary assessments. If you’re having muscle or joint aches and pains, stop by the Sentara Therapy Center and talk with one of their therapists. If you are in need of physical rehabilitation therapy, they can provide what your doctor prescribes and have the advantage of helping you integrate back into your favorite Y activity. Your Sentara therapist can help you return to your optimal state of physical health.
