An Innovative Approach to Physical Therapy

We are CMPT! One of Central Mass’s top physical therapy practices and home of the “Best of Central Mass.”

In a profession that is becoming more numbers driven, CMPT chooses QUALITY over quantity every time.  CMPT believes in a one-on-one treatment approach and at times, a two-on-one approach (that’s two CMPT therapists to one patient in the same session!).

Mark has been my go-to PT for years. Name a body part and he’s helped me make it work again: from my foot through my hip to back and shoulders. Recently my teenage son had a back pain so of course I knew right away where I was going to take him. There are many places closer to my house but I don’t settle. You go to Mark broken, and he helps you be your best self again. There are no words to express the level of my gratitude for having found Central Mass PT and Mark!

I was so impressed with Shay Gallagher at Central Mass Physical Therapy. She listened to my issues and came up with multiple forms of PT, and I’m feeling great. Shay was professional as well as fun, and I looked forward to my appointments with her. I would definitely recommend Shay!

Have been going to CMPT for years. Started back up again with Kaitie and Shay and they are amazing. Kaitie specializes in TMJ and has helped alleviate any pain in jaw and ear. Shay has focused on neck and shoulder and it been great. Attention to detail and their positive upbeat attitudes have been detrimental to the healing process! Can’t forget the faces that great you! Always a warm welcome. Thanks ladies!

It was a pleasure working with Ben, he was so helpful, very encouraging, and really helped me understand what was going on with my knee and pushed me to reach my goals! I wholeheartedly recommend Ben and just central mass pt in general!

Mark and Kaitie have been so supportive and helpful. Their directions are easy to follow and the home exercises they have given me are very helpful.

Shay was wonderful to work with. She was extremely helpful in remediating my back problems. She helped create a personalized plan which was geared to what I could comfortably do. She developed a comprehensive at-home plan to allow me to continue making progress on my own. She is friendly, warm, and respectful. She is truly outstanding!

My overall experience with CMPT was great. I started PT with Connor in the West Boylston office based on a referral from a friend. The travel time to West Boylston was worth it for the attention and results. I was happy to hear they were opening a Westborough office with Connor as the primary therapist. The new office is already well equipped and very convenient for Boroughs residents. Every member of the staff both in West Boylston and Westborough has been great. They have all worked to understand my issues and address the underlying problems. I would definitely return for future PT needs and would recommend CMPT to family and friends.
