PTSMC provided great service in a quick amount of time. From the front desk staff and assistants to the physical therapists, customer service is stellar. I was happily surprised to start PT within 24 hours of my doctor writing the prescription. My physical therapist was able to get me more mobile and showed me how to keep safe while on crutches. I am extremely thankful! Also:The Essex location is easy to get to from the Shoreline and the hours are great. 🙂

Starting physical therapy can be anxiety provoking, not knowing what to expect or how it will work out. This is particularly so when you may have had negative experiences in the past.So when I walked into PTSMC in Essex, I was prepared for the worst. What is the worst in my head - not having things fully explained to me, not having anyone watch my form & I end up hurt, not having someone allay my fears & encourage me to work consistently and more.Turns out the opposite was true at PTSMC Essex. My initial visit with Craig was thorough, asking me details, listening to my responses, explaining things in ways I would understand and making the effort to get additional information from ortho doc. Craig took me through multiple stretches & exercises detailing the movement, the benefit & what I might feel. I also work with Kelly who is equally attentive, providing clear explanation of movements, exercises. Kelly is motivating and easy to ask questions.I highly recommend PTSMC Essex if you are looking for professionalism and true expertise.

This is my 3rd experience with physical therapy and again they've got me on the road to recovery. You have to put in the work but they're with you along the way with encouragement and smiles!

Knowledgable friendly time efficient people have provided effective program of rehabilitation for my knee without making me feel on a production line. They might occasionally provide some airing of modern country music in the workout room just to be fair, as a minor detail. BYO

Total professionals at PTSMC. Craig really found the trigger point of my heel issue, treated it with an array of tactics, and provided me with an exercise program that is easily doable on my own for preventative maintenance. I learned how to manage my psychical issue and can continue to play high level Tennis at age 60.Thanks to all
