Emily did a great job helping me rehabilitate my foot a year after a bad ankle sprain. She provided expert guidance, flexibility with my schedule, and took time to monitor my progress and coach me along the way. I highly recommend this practice!

After dealing with chronic neck pain and then waking up one morning unable to move my neck, I finally decided to try physical therapy. I only had a month before I had to move to a new city, but I was able to work closely with Colin Ketchel during that time to heal the worst of the flare-ups and establish a set of exercises to continue the improvement. It was a great experience all around and made me think differently and more positively about physical therapy.

I went to PTSMC in Branford because I met Ted in a networking meeting and he gave me a suggestion about my shoulder which no other healthcare professional had ever done - keep the weight of my arm on the table when typing! I finally realized it was time to get some PT after a YEAR of pain (I had rotator cuff surgery almost 4 years prior). He has turned out to be a fantastic physical therapist! He has given me 3 treatments I've never had in all the times I've been in PT for various issues! I got dry needling on my neck which after only 2 treatments released my neck, then he does some scraping thing which releases the acid in my muscles, and then some electrical thingy at the end of my exercises. I can't tell you how much my shoulder has improved in the few weeks I've gone there! I'm so, so relieved to have met Ted. I would recommend him without reservation!

Wonderful knowledgeable staff and my back pain got much better! I saw Dr. Teddy with back pain from sitting at a desk all day. I was able to get an appointment the same day and he used dry needling to release the knots in my back. The staff was so friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend! I felt better just after 1 session and could go back to work.

Emily is a phenomenal PT. I write this as one who's had prior experience at other facilities. I'm progressing rapidly and have already recommended PTSMC to others. PTSMC was chosen for me by my knee surgeon, with a top tier reputation. He made a great choice.

Why choose PTSMC?

Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers has achieved a reputation as a leader in healthcare in Connecticut, improving the quality of life for our patients, returning them to work, athletics and the lifestyle they enjoyed prior to pain injury or surgery.

PTSMC offers physical therapy services specializing in musculoskeletal, orthopedic and sports-related injuries. Our physical therapists focus on the individual needs of each patient and develop customized, tailored treatment programs that are the safest, most efficient routes to fast recovery.

1-on-1 assessments, hands-on care, cutting-edge techniques.

All PTSMC clinicians provide hands-on care to their patients. Listening and careful evaluation of each patient’s needs are vital to our patient-centered care model. Spending time with patients throughout the cycle of care, from initial evaluation to discharge, ensures complete satisfaction and successful out­comes. Patient education about injury, treatment and recovery is valued and stressed throughout the rehabilitation. PTSMC clinicians use a combination of expert hands-on care with cutting-edge techniques and equipment to provide world-class treatment to each patient based on their individual deficits, needs and goals.

What do we treat?

Physical therapy is not just an effective way to rehab severe injury or immobility – it’s the go-to healthcare option for anyone dealing with sudden or recurring muscle or joint pain. This includes people of all ages and abilities with sports injuries, back or neck pain, vertigo or balance issues, TMJ jaw pain and headaches, arthritis, knee pain, foot and ankle pain, pre and post-natal issues, post-operative needs, fitness needs, or simply muscle or joint pain that keeps you up all night or keeps you from doing what you love during the day.

NO DOCTOR REFERRAL NEEDED!

With CT’s “Direct Access” laws, most individuals can see a physical therapist without a doctor’s referral. This means you can save time and money by skipping the physician and instead scheduling an appointment with the muscle and joint experts who can assess your issue, identify the root cause of the pain, and create a customized program to get you moving and feeling good again.

We’re proud to partner with the following Branford community events and organizations:
