Excellent5.0 Based on 56 reviews from review us onJeffery LeeJeffery Lee ★★★★★ Joe and his team at PT SMC are great at what they do I didn't finish pt 2yrs ago after rotator cuff surgery and my range of motion was horrible I thought it would get there on its own MISTAKE !!! thankfully I was able to get back with Joe and after 2 weeks already feeling less stiff better range of motion already !! They really know what they're doing !! Couldn't be happier with PT&SMC !!!😊John PhilcoxJohn Philcox ★★★★★ Great office everyone is friendly and professional.Patricia PerezPatricia Perez ★★★★★ I have seen Megan, Becky and more often Joe at the clinic.Adam and the other PT Aides are also very good to assist you in going over all your exercises while you’re there.They are all very patient, kind, professional and compassionate Physical Therapists. I highly recommend them. There’s also a new and highly competent Physical therapist that joined in the summer. I’ve heard he’s also wonderful 😀.Deb and Alexis assist in scheduling and delegate with insurance companies to facilitate in making your appointments at this Clinic. Thank you all for making it a comfortable place to go to.Pat gibsonPat gibson ★★★★★ Every staff is so gracious, polite,kind and patient. They have been very attentive and do not rush you through your exercises. If ANY of the staff are not working hands on with someone,then they are cleaning all equipment. I HIGHLY recommend them!Lisa BLisa B ★★★★★ Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Center, Naugatuck is quite exceptional.Here they provide very effective and efficient care that brings you back to your full physical potential in much less time than you thought. I was immediately scheduled for a thorough initial assessment and had brought my Surgeons' recommendations as well as pictures of scans which can sometimes help determine your specific needs. Falling 12 feet onto a wooden deck in May, I sustained significant trauma with a severe multi fractured pelvis which completely severed the sacrum posteriorly,  coupled with anterior fractures that disrupted the entire pelvic ring.  This de stabilizes all gait and balance, as well as, disturbing the entire frame and parts of the lower body and spine.  This type of injury requires a Physical Therapist that is extremely confident and competent.  Complicating the rehabilitation further for me were twelve fractured ribs and a displaced fractured shoulder.I was very surprised that my pain was significantly reduced after just one week.Their expertise is revealed in how quickly I see results, such as using a cane less and less.Meghan has been responsible for creating therapy that is continually evolving.My rapid progress, confirmed by intermittent measurements, is based on her strategy of continually modifying exercises.  Each session is personally guided but the entire Team is involved and constantly monitoring safety for all.I have profound respect for the Naugatuck Team and grateful for their exceptional ability which surpassed my expectations by far.Lisa B. BSN RNWaterWomanWaterWoman ★★★★★ I wanted to write this review before I moved on like we all do sometimes because life moves to fast. I wanted to publicly thank Joe and and his team at Physical Therapy And Sports Medicine on Prospect Street in Naugatuck for the rehabilitation they gave me after my total knee replacement. Joe is an intuitive and sports minded therapist and able to determine a care plan based on the whole picture of a patient. As a nurse, I appreciate his high level of patient care. Joe (and his team) treated me as a whole person and not just "a knee". I'd like to thank Bethany for her excellent advice helping me recognize a few key deficits in my gait. Adam, who was able to anticipate my impatience to "finish the workout" and paced my sessions like a coach! Megan, who gave me a thoughtful perspective and guidance on a number of concerns. Deborah, who works with a smile on her face and Rose who only has to smile to add warmth to your day! If I have forgotten anybody I'm sorry, but this was my A Team. Thank you so much for your help.PS: This physical therapy center is also in a cool building that used to be an elementary school back in the day. Joe has a lot of historical things around the office that are worth looking at. I particularly like the picture of the schools around Naugatuck in the evaluation room and the commemorative American flags and where in the world they have flown over.Ted MurphyTed Murphy ★★★★★ Excellent, professional, knowledgeable staff that truly takes the time to understand your problems and needs to plan an efficient and effective treatment regimen. Highly recommended for your rehabilitation needs.Robin PivirottoRobin Pivirotto ★★★★★ The staff here are awesome. From the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave.

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.
