AUBURN_ South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT) is proud to announce Jason Whigham as Clinical Director for the practice’s location at 319A Southbridge Street in Auburn. Whigham will oversee all aspects of patient care and departmental operations, while upholding SCPT’s commitment to improving lives through ground-breaking healthcare programs and exemplary physical therapy treatment.
“We are thrilled to have Jason take the helm at SCPT’s Auburn practice. With over a decade of physical therapy experience, combined with numerous areas of specialized certification, he will be an invaluable asset to our healthcare team,” said SCPT Executive Director Eric Cardin.
Whigham studied at the University of Hartford, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA) and is trained in the Nolaro24 Quadrastep Orthotic System, a revolutionary orthotic solution. Whigham is also certified in the Graston Technique, an innovative treatment approach that allows clinicians to identify and break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions to promote an ideal range of motion. With personal interests in both sports and science, Whigham was naturally attracted to sports medicine treatment.
“I’m honored to join an organization with such a long-standing presence in healthcare, which has an exceptional track record and reputation throughout the region,” Whigham said. “Throughout my career, I’ve strived to make a difference and surround myself with the most talented PT professionals, who embody the same excellence that I have aspired to achieve. This is one of the greatest reasons that I was drawn to SCPT. I look forward to collaborating with the SCPT team, as we continue to deliver positive and exceptional patient experiences,” said Whigham.
Inspired by his volunteer work at an outpatient clinic, Whigham has devoted his career to providing patients with educational resources to take a proactive role in their health. He has served as a guest lecturer at area high schools, senior centers, and events for community outreach.
“Physical therapy can facilitate powerful changes in an individual’s health. By assessing movement before an injury or illness occurs, we can help reduce the risk factors for chronic and acute conditions through preventative measures. It’s always heartening to see patients make small lifestyle changes that yield dramatic long-term results,” added Whigham.
For over 30 years, South County Physical Therapy, Inc. has been dedicated to providing its patients with quality, personalized rehabilitative care in an environment that is safe, comfortable and compassionate. As a privately owned company, the organization has given back to numerous charitable organizations in the communities it serves, and seeks to make a difference in promoting wellness and health awareness.
