Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers New LondonExcellentPhysical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers New London5.0 Based on 71 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onKathryn PadegenisKathryn Padegenis ★★★★★ From the start to the finish of my visit I received excellent service. My insurance was thoroughly checked and my copay identified up front. My copay was rather a lot. Knowing this, my therapist provided a comprehensive home therapy regimen for me and encouraged me to email or call if I had questions or concerns so that I didn't need to pay another copay unless absolutely necessary. A very client oriented way to do business. 5 stars, highly recommend.Kurtis ShampineKurtis Shampine ★★★★★ Well structured PT plan delivered in a very human manner! Great staff !Pauline SedgemanPauline Sedgeman ★★★★★ I have been working with Liz, a Physical Therapist at this location. (I’m Paula. The name above is my sister’s, not mine!)

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.

After getting cast off he immediately started PT and working to get his arm back to throwing form. Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was recommended to us. They work patiently but also push him to be his best. The thing I noticed the most is my son is very shy with new situations but was happy and motivated to go to PT. Very happy with Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine from the office staff to the Physical Therapist’s helping us understand the injury and what we had to do to get him back to 100%. Very happy.Kathy BrownKathy Brown ★★★★★ 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.”Marsha BowmanMarsha Bowman ★★★★★ The staff are competent, professional, and friendly.

Class act!Denis SoucyDenis Soucy ★★★★★ 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,.

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.


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.
