TREATMENT OPTIONS AT PTSMC
The PTSMC Difference
PTSMC and PT For Life Physical Therapists are highly educated and skilled clinicians trained to evaluate and diagnose using a broad range of research-based manual tests. We encourage all of our clinicians to constantly look for ways to improve and stay at the front line of the physical therapy field, whether through the pursuit of additional certifications, education opportunities, club memberships, professional development, seminars or group learning activities. With your physician’s diagnosis, our expertise and a comprehensive initial evaluation, a custom treatment plan will be tailor-made to help you return to sports, work or other daily activities.
Comprehensive Injury Assessment
If you have had a recent injury, or you’re experiencing muscle or joint pain, an injury assessment is the best first step towards recovery and living pain-free. Our expert clinicians will perform a comprehensive physical evaluation at your initial visit and provide advice on the next steps you should take towards your recovery. Unlike many other clinics, we dedicate a full hour to this initial evaluation in order to learn your history, talk about your problem, explore potential causes, perform movement assessments and identify problem areas with as much information as possible before recommending a physical therapy program. We are here to help you with a customized PT treatment program only if it’s necessary.
Patient education is a vital part of your physical therapy experience because we believe you should understand your diagnosis, know why we’ve built your treatment program a certain way, and be able to set attainable goals. Along with the evaluation process, we will educate you on the causes of your pain and explain what types of self-care techniques and home exercises will be important to maximize your rehabilitation and keep you moving pain free once your PT is completed.
Head Straight to PT
With DIRECT ACCESS laws in Connecticut, most insurances allow you to schedule an evaluation with a PT and start a physical therapy program without a script or doctor’s referral. By heading straight to the body experts, you can save time and money, identify the root cause of your pain and get on the path to recovery.
