The staff at PTSMC in New London is top notch. They were initially recommended to me by my orthopedic surgeon. I have had therapy appointments with just about all the PTs there over the years. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable at their job and also work very hard to ensure anyone who steps in the door is comfortable and fully informed to ensure the best result. It has always been a pleasure to work with these talented individuals.

This is the best PT place to go. Appointments are 45 min to an hour, totally dependent on your needs. The evaluation was thorough and plan of care was clearly laid out. The staff are so kind from the moment you walk in the door until you leave... it has a family like feel. Everyone knows your name as they work like a team, although you are assigned one main PT therapist to best fit your needs. I can't say enough about them. Thank you very much for continuing to be a part of my healing.

After extensive back surgery in 2020, I began a year long PT program at PTSMC New London. I chose PTSMC New London after evaluating several other PT groups in the area. Scott ensures all aspects of his business are top notch - from selecting PT’s who are knowledgeable, compassionate and determined, to the staff who welcome you by name every time and the assistants who know how to support the PT’s so you get the best care. Currently, Scott is investing in his business by remodeling to update the clinic and ensure he provides the best experience for each patient as well as his employees.I want to especially commend Cate Ayotte for her work with me.Her professionalism, expertise and passion for healing are evident and her enthusiasm is as therapeutic as her procedure. She created an exercise program to aid my recovery and made certain I would be prepared to continue it on my own. And, PTSMC provides online access to StriveHub Portal videos displaying my personal program to ensure proper form and access to quality “PT for life.”

From the first day I experienced the therapist and staff at PTSM their goal and mine was to get me back to work and my life. Every visit I was greeted with the question "how was I feeling"? They listened to me and tailored my exercises to my progress. Scott was my therapist and his goal was to make sure I could perform at my job at the completion of my sessions. I have had best experience that I could have ever hoped for at Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. I'm not 100 percent yet but they took me from zero to where I am today, the rest is up to me and the time needed to finish healing.Thank you all,. Denis

I personally do not attend the facility. My grandson who is 16 has been treated by Scott and Jeff. He had a surgery after a sports related injury. He speaks very highly of both therapists. They work with him on his level, as well as my neighbor has been going there for quite some time and sees both Scott and Jeff as well, she is 80 and thinks they are great. This facility, Leslie at front desk is great to work with as I deal with her for appointment, billing, etc. and Jeff or Scott are all 5 star.

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 community events and organizations:
