Craig Zettergren opened up the Physical Therapy Center of Bristol, LLC in Bristol Connecticut in 2003 after being the Director of Rehab Services for Bristol Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation Department from 1997-2002.
Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers of Bristol, Southington and Wallingford, CT have the unique distinction of being the only accredited McKenzie Clinic in New England. Unlike traditional physical therapy clinics, the McKenzie Method (also called Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy or MDT) is focused on empowering the patient to self-treat using simple, individually prescribed, exercises and postures.
Waiting on an MRI? You don’t need an MRI before starting therapy. We offer a uniquely effective, customized evaluation that research has shown to be nearly as effective as an MRI or CATSCAN. Most patients experience rapid and successful results, while gaining empowerment that teaches them how to handle flare ups on their own. Our methods save time, money, and energy. As a McKenzie Certified Clinic (one of only 30 in the U.S.), PTC is backed by an international network of practitioners, and a system—not just an exercise.
