Physical Therapist in Avon, CT

BodyFiT Physical Therapy, located in the town of Avon in the Farmington Valley, provides the best physical therapy care by helping active people to recover from injury to get back in the gym, keep playing their sport, and enjoying life. Your therapist's goal is to resolve your issue without unnecessary pain killers, injections, or prolonged rest, in the quickest time possibly by providing one-on-one hands-on care.

If you are viewing this page, you are likely in pain or have an injury that is limiting the active lifestyle you desire. Whether you are just recently injured or have been in pain for years, you may be unsure what is the best way to fix your injury. Should you rest, should you go to a chiropractor, should you have a massage or should you try physical therapy?

You are probably searching the web to see where to go or have been asking your friends and family where they have gone.  Or maybe you have not had good results with physical therapy in the past, leaving you unsure about what to try next.  

To help you make a decision, we have designed this website to give you as much information about me and my clinic and how my model of care differs than other local therapy clinics.

In your area there are some good options to receive adequate care but you should want more than an adequate option. You deserve the best option.  And keep in mind there are unfortunately several providers that will provide less than adequate care, because they are making decisions regarding your therapy based on their bottom line and not on the quickest and best way to get you better. 

When looking for a physical therapy provider here are some key questions to keep in mind:

  1. How many patients will your therapist see while he/she is treating you?
  2. How much manual or hands-on care will you receive during your therapy session?
  3. Will you be supervised at any time by a tech during your treatment session?
  4. Will you be treated in a gym filled with other patients on treatment tables?

At BodyFiT Physical Therapy located in Avon CT, we are different than these other area therapy facilities and here is why. 

We see patients for an hour of one-on-one hands on care, utilizing the most relevant and effective forms of manual therapy, including joint mobilization and manipulation, massage therapy, cupping, dry needling and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization by using special tools.  You are the only patient seen during your treatment time and you will never be told to go do your exercise while supervised from across the room by a tech.

People Who I Help Include:

  • Active Adults, Young and Old...Who never want to miss a minute of the game or take time off from the gym.
  • Hard Working Women and Moms...Who want to look and be healthy, feel more energized, be able to run after their kids all day, workout at their favorite studio or gym...without being bothered by pain or stiffness.
  • Busy Men and Dads...Who know their family needs them, so being in pain, and on bed-rest from acute back pain is not an option; they need their energy for work and play.
  • Health Conscious Men and Women...who know that painkillers, injections, and unnecessary surgery are not the best answer; they have already been let down by the healthcare system that only offer mill-like Physical Therapy, excessive medications, and prolonged rest or worse...the elimination of their favorite activity.
  • Adult Athletes...Who want to be fit for that next WOD, round of golf, tennis match, their weekly running club, or that pick-up pickleball game with the gals.

 

I have treated various active adults and athletes including:

  • CrossFit Athletes
  • Tennis Players 
  • Golfers
  • Pilates/Barre Studio Members
  • Yoga Enthusiasts
  • Weekend Warriors
  • Strongman Participants
  • Weightlifters
  • Olympic Lifters 
  • Cyclists

The common theme with all my patients though is that they want to stay as active as possible for life, they do not want to give up their sport or leisure activity, they are not accepting of the “just rest and take some pills”, they prefer a more natural approach, and a more holistic solution to their injury. 

If this sounds like you, then me and my clinic may just be a perfect fit, so come visit me at Bodyfit Physical therapy.

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!

    My experience with BodyFiT Physical Therapy far exceeded my expectations. I wrenched my back playing golf and was in a lot of pain and desperate when I called Cindy looking for help. Although it was Sunday, Cindy met me in the office and gave me a full evaluation in less than an hour after my call. She was able to mobilize the injured area back into place and relieve the pain. She also gave me good instructions as to how to keep my back stable to avoid a recurrence of the displaced disk. I understand that, because I received care so quickly, it is likely that I was able to avoid a prolonged recovered that often occurs after swelling has set in. I am very thankful for the prompt, expert care I received at BodyFiT Physical Therapy. I am also happy to report I played a pain-free round of golf that following weekend!

    Recently had the professional expertise of Cindy Langer at BodyFiT Physical thTherapy in Avon. Six weeks ago had left knee replacement done with wonderful results but I had severe back and hip pain as a result of walking differently. In addition to PT for my knee I sought Cindy’s expertise. She took me immediately and listened to all my complaints and symptoms. She spent time one on one with me. Never rushed me and reassured me that I would get better. She gave me exercises to do (not many but focused) and printed them out. She also continued to communicate with me. As of today I have seen her twice. I would not hesitate to go again. Went to the pool at my gym today, hardly using a cane and hope to golf in 6 weeks. I am a registered nurse and this therapy and therapist were without a doubt what helped me. Thanks Cindy.

    I had been experiencing planters fasciitis for awhile. So I contacted Cindy Langer. I was so impressed with her attention to my situation and her interest in solving my pain. She gave me some exercises to do at home as well as weekly visits for a month. I feel so much better and I know I have Cindy to thank for that! The office is so inviting and welcoming, too! I highly recommend Cindy for your physical therapy needs! Lisa Hudkins

    My doctor recommended physical therapy after a cortisone shot for hip arthritis. I debated about whether to go to an in-network provider but had met Cindy Langer through the Avon Chamber of Commerce and liked her philosophy. I'm so glad I chose her. First of all, all of her attention is on you and your issues during your appointment. You're not competing with other PT patients for her time. Second, she didn't just focus on my hip issues, and we actually uncovered that I have back issues, too, which were definitely contributing to my pain. My doctor was very impressed when I reported this to him saying "I like her!" Finally, she's great to spend time with--friendly, considerate, listens, pushes you appropriately and non-critically. I highly recommend her. Definitely worth every penny of the additional coinsurance I had to pay. Will return to her practice if I ever need PT in the future.

    This place is awesome- Cindy is the best! She goes out of her way to explain everything she is doing, and offer suggestions on how to carry out the exercises at home. It is so nice to get the personal treatment and leave feeling so much better! I would not hesitate to go here.

    Cindy's expertise has proved invaluable in my path to recovery. The exercises and general posture instruction she provided have given me the tools to prevent my type of injury from happening again. She's wonderful to work with, I've recommended her to several of my friends who are musicians as well.

    I had been having trouble with my knees for over a year. I had to stop running altogether and was having trouble doing the WOD's at the gym. I had been to two surgeons, cortisone shots and physical therapy already and didn't know what else to do. Surgery wasn't an option and I wasn't ready to give up. I read an article about BodyFit and Cindy and decided to give it a try. I was hesitant at first because BodyFit is out of network for my insurance and I didn't know if it would be any different from what I already had done. It was definitely worth it! I signed up for a series of treatments and my knees started feeling better. The pain I experienced everyday and especially at night started to go away. I am working on adding more exercises that I never thought I would be able to do again. Cindy is very knowledgeable and really listens to you. She sets up a plan customized just for you. I never felt rushed and she never looked at the clock. She only takes one person at a time. Most importantly, she truly wants to help you and get you back to whatever it is you are trying to do. My knees are still a work in process but I feel I wouldn't have come this far without her help.

    I first visited BodyFIt PT in November at the advice of my physical trainer after I injured a muscle in my back. I'm 62 and an avid golfer, and the injury made it impossible to play or even exercise. Cindy initially gave me some basic exercises to help relieve the pain and then, slowly, worked in stretches and strength training to build me back up. My goal was to be ready for a family golf trip in February, and I can report that I played three days in a row without any discomfort! What's more, the exercise program Cindy has me on added strength and flexibility, which all showed up in my golf swing. Cindy does a great job at explaining her approach to fitness and health, and has customized a program specific to my needs. She's also a great motivator. I am thrilled with the progress I've made under her care and am committed to continue on the path she's set me on. I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a personal approach to injury recovery and fitness. I don't think of myself as an athlete (it's golf, after all), but she has taught me a completely new way of thinking about how my body works and how to keep it healthy.

    Had a great experience with Cindy at BodyFiT PT. Cindy was able to evaluate the source of my injury and provide immediate relief in the first session. She provided clear direction for self- correction as well as stretches and exercises to ultimately eliminate the discomfort. After a few sessions, all symptoms were gone and now, over two months later, there’s been no reoccurrence. I highly recommend BodyFiT for her expertise, individualized service and after care program. Cindy will provides the knowledge to bring you relief and creates a plan that leads to full recovery. Your motivation and execution of the program she provides are the key to great and long lasting results! A+

    Cindy really helped me feel better and put me on the road to recovery after a bulging cervical disc. She used her knowledge of CrossFit and gave me modifications so I could continue working out through the healing process. She also helped find weaknesses in my neck/back and gave me an exercise plan to strengthen those areas. She is kind, caring, and enthusiastic; necessary characteristics in a physical therapist!

    Cindy spends the whole appointment time working one on one with her clients and is very thorough. She tries to get to the source of the problem rather than just treat symptoms and then equips her patients with the knowledge and information they need to take care of their issues on their own. Cindy is accessible, friendly and really listens. After seeing many doctors and a different physical therapist about my injury I felt like Cindy was the only one who spent the time to know the whole story and look at it from every angle. I highly recommend her!

    Cindy Langer PT with BodyFit Physical Therapy in Avon has provided excellent care. She did a thorough assessment and discussed potential outcomes and goals with me. Throughout the sessions she was responsive to what I was experiencing and tweaked her treatments and patient education accordingly. I feel comfortable with her knowledge base and her motivation to find the best way to reduce my pain and increase my function. I would recommend her highly to anyone seeking one - on - one personalized care for physical therapy.

    Nagging neck issues related to overuse with poor posture. Cindy was accessible, friendly, super helpful without any enticing to purchase extra services. I recommend her without reservation.

    I’ve been weight lifting for a number of years and have had my share of aches and pains especially in my low back. I made an appointment with BodyFit, saw Cindy, and after our first appointment I had no doubt that I was in good hands. She was incredibly thorough at each appointment, taking into consideration my concerns and symptoms. The therapy she used (IASTM, dry needling, manual therapy) was very conducive to helping me get back on track with my weight lifting goals. If you have had or have reoccurring injuries from power lifting, weight lifting, or CrossFit, Cindy can help you out!
