Anthony Ciaburri and his team at Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers (PTSMC) of Orange celebrated their five-year anniversary in 2017, and now they’re moving to a brand new 4,000 square-foot facility to better serve an ever-expanding base of patients. While the move is a short one – the office is relocating from the front of Spring Brook Common on Indian River Road to the adjacent building in the same complex – the new location offers triple the clinical space and a number of enhancements for patients and clinicians, including additional treatment rooms and upgraded equipment.
Ciaburri, Partner & Director of the clinic, along with his clinical team, Assistant Director Juliann Chacko and Physical Therapists Nicholas Almonte, Katy Sullivan and Stephanie Weyrauch, are excited to be able to serve even more people from the Orange community and beyond. “We’ve built a strong reputation in the community because our patients have spread the word about us to their friends and family,” Ciaburri said. He added, “That positive word-of-mouth, and the fact that more and more people are taking advantage of Connecticut’s ‘Direct Access’ law, which says that you can see a physical therapist without a doctor’s referral, has helped us grow as a clinical team. It became clear that it was the right time to expand so we could continue to offer the highest quality of care to our patients.”
To meet demand for its services, PTSMC Orange has also added two new clinicians in the past two years: Nicholas Almonte, PT, DPT, OCS, who also teaches at Sacred Heart’s Doctorate program for Physical Therapy, and Stephanie Weyrauch, who joined the group earlier this year and is a nationally-recognized speaker, advocate and podcaster for physical therapy.
PTSMC Orange will be fully moved into its new facility in early November. The group looks forward to treating even more patients of all ages suffering from various injuries and issues, including sports injury rehab, osteoarthritis, back and neck pain, post-op rehab, vertigo and more.

Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers is Connecticut’s largest private-practice physical therapy company with 20 locations around the state serving over 15,000 patients every year. PTSMC’s mission is to improve the quality of people’s life by providing an unmatched patient experience, clinical excellence and lifelong relationships. President Alan Balavender, a physical therapist himself, purchased and started the first PTSMC clinic in Waterbury in 2000. Balavender established a “partnership model” that supports physical therapists who want to own and operate their own clinics, and has since helped over 20 clinicians realize that goal.
