Physical Therapy from Rehabilitation Experts

Gaylord is a rehabilitation-focused health system with physical therapy generally a part of standard inpatient therapy.

Our orthopedic physical therapy offices, which are located in Cheshire, Cromwell and North Haven, are part of the Gaylord network. 

We also offer physical therapy that is focused on neurological rehabilitation through our Outpatient Services at our Wallingford location.

At each location and at every stage of recovery, skilled physical therapists work with patients to define goals, reduce pain, and increase mobility and personal performance. Gaylord PT uses advanced technologies and techniques to accelerate rehabilitation and return people to maximum health and quality of life.

Physical Therapy Services During COVID-19

As the State of Connecticut continues to see a rise in COVID-19 positive cases, Gaylord remains vigilant with infection prevention and is adhering to all CDC guidelines to ensure patients can feel safe and continue to receive the therapeutic care they need. We continue to make safe clinical decisions based on symptoms, travel, or exposure, and will modify patient appointments as necessary. Our experienced and compassionate clinicians are committed to keeping patients connected through in-person or via telehealth visits. With safety as our highest priority, we continue to implement the following:

  • Treatment and waiting areas have been spaced 6 feet apart.
  • All patients and staff are required to wear masks.
  • Everyone entering our facilities  will be screened for temperature and COVID symptoms.
  • Our staff is cleaning equipment and surfaces following infection prevention guidelines.
  • ​We offer telehealth as another option for patient care.
