Bay State Therapy, which has 28 offices in two states, opened a Stoughton Clinic in January of 2013 and already is expanding. Yes, in an economy that features empty storefronts, one company is moving forward.
Located inside the Old Colony YMCA in Stoughton, the clinic primarily focuses on orthopedics, while treating a wide variety of pediatric, geriatric and post-operative populations. Managing partner Barbara Kasa, DPT, values combining manual treatment with functional therapeutic exercise to rehab individuals, giving one-on- one care.
The Stoughton clinic offers aquatic therapy with fellow PT Maggie Cochrane, DPT, NSCA-CPT, instructing alongside patients in the pool, with her specialized training. She is also an avid participant in the sports community--especially in gymnastics-- having a strong presence with local clubs such as the New England Sports Academy.
Kasa said that the clinic, located in the basement of the Y, adjacent to the spinning room and family fitness room, is already expanding. “We have been seeing a good amount of patients and saw an opportunity to add another physical therapist. We are happy to welcome Rebecca Dion, DPT, to the Stoughton team. She is a recent graduate of American International College and has broad clinical experiences in outpatient, sub-acute, pediatric and geriatric physical therapy. She has a special interest in disorders involving vestibular rehab as well.”
Completing the Stoughton office are patient care coordinators Cara Maher and Felisha Xavier. Kasa says, “make clients feel comfortable and welcomed as soon as they walk in. They maintain organization within the clinic's day to day operations, including verifying insurance benefits and scheduling patients.
Within the YMCA community, Bay State Therapy is involved in open houses and events such as the annual Spin-A-Thon and Kids' Day. In addition, the clinic offers injury screenings and gait analysis to all YMCA members. Bay State staff also present monthly seminars about various topics including injury prevention and can be seen at various local runs providing assessments and stretching to runners.
In Stoughton, the staff strives to establish customized treatment plans for patients in a motivating environment for overall positive results and improved health and wellness.
Other nearby Bay State Therapy locations include: Brockton, Foxborough, Quincy, Randolph and Weymouth.
