I had tried everything on my own to get healthy for two months but nothing was working. I told him I had one goal. Get healthy to run the Boston Marathon in April. I knew to do so I would have to be healthy by February so that there would be enough time to train. Brian worked around the clock with me and by February I was feeling 100% healthy. I was not only able to run the marathon but i also qualified to run it again next year. He made my experience such a positive one that I looked forward to showing up to every session. I would strongly recommend Brian and his staff at PTSM to anyone that is dealing with any injuries or is in need of any help.Ben StoneBen Stone ★★★★★ As a former college athlete and someone working in the medical field I have had a lot of experience with physical therapy and recovery techniques. I recently strained my trapezius muscle to the degree in which I was unable to perform simple day to day activities, nun the less continue my daily exercising routine. I called the Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Center in Glastonbury and that same day they were able to get me an appointment. Everyone I spoke too was knowledgeable and listened to my concerns and after two 1 hour sessions I was back to my day to day activities and exercising routine. The service here was top notch, I have nothing bad to say about this office or its employees. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for relief from any pain or nagging injury.

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.
