My Therapist Amy has set me on a path to recovery from my chronic neck and elbow conditions . Her approach has been incredibly effective so far . She manages to intertwine therapy with information on how and why we are doing the things we are doing to help resolve my pain . For the first time in a long time I am hopeful to return to a daily life that is no longer effected by chronic pain. The premises is always impeccably clean, organized and well equipped. The support staff and therapy assistants like Jocelyn are always, professional, motivating and helpful when finding me an appointment that fits my tight schedule or assisting with my exercises . I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone who appreciates a therapist and team who treats the actual patient and not just their symptoms.Donna EspenbergDonna Espenberg ★★★★★ The team at PTSMC is great!

I would highly recommend them.Michelle SmithMichelle Smith ★★★★★ I can’t say enough good things about this place and the staff. Everyone is so professional and really care about getting the patient back to where they were before a surgery, injury or other medical condition. The woman that left a 1 star review wasn’t even a patient for starters. The staff behind the desk are working to help other patients and probably didn’t even see them at the door. I’m sure if they knew they were struggling, they would have gotten up to help. . This is a great PT, with great staff.Dawn WDawn W ★★★★★ Wonderful and knowledgeable staff and a very welcoming environmentChelsea DellaRoccaChelsea DellaRocca ★★★★★ I started seeing Ted a few weeks ago.

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.

Great location right off Exit 56, or simple fir us Rt80 to Rt139.As for staff, I’m fortunate to have Emily for hip and leg issues and my husband , having Ted for rotator issue. We are seeing success and feeling better after3 weeks and getting our mobility back. A huge factor for me, having PT various times in my life , at 3 different facilities, and now coming to PTSM in Brandeis a life changer. Treatments are thorough and because of this faculty being on a smaller scale the one to one personalized therapy is second to none. My form, comfort or challenge levels are always monitored with Emily or an assistant close by as well as my husbands.

physical therapy examples

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.


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.
