CT Sports Physical Therapy & Wellness was founded in August 2013. We started CT Sports because we realized that patients were beginning to be seen as a number and not as an individual. With reimbursements from insurance companies decreasing, many clinics have decided to go the direction of seeing more patients but for less time. This did not sit well with us. We decided to open CT Sports so that we could treat patients based on what they need and fight the insurance companies without involving the patient.
At CT Sports, all treatments will be carried out by a licensed therapist. We do not use PT aides or rehab techs. We feel that passing our patients off to ancillary staff is not the best use of your healthcare dollars. Our therapists are highly educated and we believe you deserve their expertise.
Keeping up with the latest research is a big part of what separates us from others. Our staff are provided with access to multiple health care journals such as the American Journal of Sports Medicine (AJSM) and are given a limitless budget for continuing education. We do not just go to courses to fulfill our licensure requirements. We carefully select courses that are instructed by the leaders in our field such as Kevin Wilk, George Daves and Robin McKenzie.
At CT Sports, we understand that life gets in the way. We know that you might be running late for your appointment but you will not get penalized for being 5-10 minutes late. We will work with your schedule to make sure that you get the best possible use of your time and the therapy that you need.
One of our main focuses is giving back to the community. We sponsor the Norwalk Summer Series and provide coverage for the races as well as our staff taking part in the races. We believe that we can better understand injuries by being extremely active. Our staff is involved in a myriad of activities such as rugby, Crossfit, gymnastics and long distance running to name a few. By being active, we know what you are feeling and can relate to our patients.
