My 2nd stint of PT for two separate injuries and I couldn’t be happier. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. Erin is the BEST. She listens, explains and then works as hard on me as I do to succeed. This is a dedicated team of enthusiastic and caring professionals. Easy to get to, free parking and clean facility. The water therapy treatment pool is second to none. Want to get and feel better? Go to Boston Sports Medicine.

Dance specific rehab: My 14 yr old ballerina came to Boston Sports Medicine to receive dance specific rehab for a dislocated patella.

We go to the Watertown location to receive treatment from David Merson (PT) and Katherine Hartsell (PTA) in Allston. David and Katherine work closely together providing her with the best care she could possibly receive. Katherine, being a dancer herself understands the demands of dancer’s body and she is absolutely amazing. Her knowledge is extensive, and we cannot imagine going through this process without her. We recommend using the team of David and Kathy for any dance injury.

We are just so fortunate to have been able to receive such a high caliber of treatment and such specialized care that will enable my daughter to return safely and confidently back to dance. My daughter always looks forward to her sessions and comes out feeling uplifted!

I’ve been to see one of the PTs at Boston Sports Medicine several times for a knee injury and a shoulder strain. Both have been successfully resolved due to the excellent care, treatment and guidance of the physical therapist. Thanks B.L.!

“Successfully Resolved”

This is the second time I’ve gone to Boston Sports Medicine for treatment. I recently had knee surgery to repair frequent dislocations. I am seeing Stacy for treatment and she is knowledgeable, caring and encouraging.  After a complication with my recovery, I had to temporarily cancel our appointments and Stacy even checked in to make sure I was doing okay. When I returned to PT, she was very supportive and made sure my program addressed the surgery recovery but also considered my concerns due to the complication. She also has been flexible with changes to our scheduled apts because of other unexpected medical appointments.

I enjoy going to my apts each week because she and the other staff are all very friendly and create a positive environment that really encourages recovery. I would definitely recommend Stacy and Boston Sports Medicine for anyone who is looking for physical therapy.

“Knowledgeable, caring and encouraging”

I am an avid triathlete, regularly punishing my body to it’s limits with long days out on the road. In return, my body has awarded me my fair share of injuries – shoulder strains, plantar fasciitis, ITBS, Hip Flexor strains… just to name a few.

BSM has consistently exceeded my expectations in all facets of treatment. I have been using them for 2+ years and have never had a bad experience. I’ve worked with every PT/PTA on staff and have found their treatments and professionalism to be consistently exceptional across the board. Best of all, they understand the athlete mentality. They understand that losing fitness only takes a fraction of the time it takes to gain it back. They truly want you to reach your goals and perform your best, so they do everything they can to keep you training and racing in order to minimize the impact of injury on your fitness goals. I always refer my friends to Mike and his team and I strongly encourage you to give them a shot if you’re looking for a top-notch physical therapy facility with an all-star staff.

“A top-notch physical therapy facility with an all-star staff”

I have gone here for a number of different sports injuries and rehab. Each time they do a thorough exam of the injury and outline a rehab plan. I like that it’s a smaller place and you aren’t sent with an assistant over to machines to do your rehab.

For the most part you are working one on one with the PT who has devised an individualized plan for you. They are also very good about accommodating last minute visits,- this has been very helpful to me in the days before a game or race.

“Individualized attention”

I worked with David and Evie – both of whom were great. Extremely professional and very attentive. I would also point out that they found a blood clot resulting from a recent surgery. Without their assistance I don’t think I would have identified this as a potential issue. Thank you both for all of your help.

“Thank you both for all of your help”

I first went to Boston Sports Medicine in Allston, MA for a strained hip flexor last year. At that time, I couldn’t really run and was pretty miserable about the constant soreness in my hip. I worked with Mike, with Jennifer Mohns and with Stacey Choquette and I cannot even express how grateful I am for all that they have done for me. Mike worked with me initially but then Jenny and Stacy were my regular PTs and they were both absolutely awesome. I have nothing but the highest praise for both Jenny and Stacey – they used a variety of techniques to work on my hips (and later this year on my feet for plantar fasciitis), and they had me back up and running and competing in half-marathons in a couple of months. They not only know exactly what to do and how to best work with your body, but they are so accommodating and really care about you and that you improve. They were always so excited when I reported back with any improvements, and provided constant follow-up, feedback and advise. Jennie even emailed me some extra ankle exercises to do at home when I strained a tendon in my ankle – not severely enough to warrant PT sessions, but enough to need strengthening, and the exercises have been great in helping me gain some more strength.

As someone who works out and has been through various injuries, I can say without any reservations that BSM has the best PTs – and if you go then definitely ask for Jenny Mohns and Stacey Choquette. They’ll have you back up and working out again in no time, and they’ll follow up to make sure you’re doing ok after finishing your sessions!

“So accommodating and really care about you”

I have worked with both Erin Looney and Katherine Hartsell as Boston Sports Medicine for tendonitis in my ankle. As a ballet dancer it was great to have a therapist (Kathy) who have previously been a dancer.

At BSM they provide you with a full comprehensive program to help you recover from an injury. Their approach to look at how your body functions as a whole helps in the recovery and prevention of later injuries. I now have a better understanding of how my body should work in and out of ballet classes and they have also given me many helpful exercises. I highly recommend Boston Sports Medicine to both dancers and non-dancers.

I was a competitive gymnast for most of my life. I have seen so many DPTs growing up and I have to say, Meaghan Harwood is by far the best DPT I have ever had. I highly recommend her for all PT needs.

“The best DPT I have ever had”

I had a fantastic experience with Boston Sports Medicine. My PT, Ned, was super knowledgeable and pleasant, and his program for me made a big difference. It was clear that all the other staff were equally as competent, professional and pleasant as well.

“Competent, Professional and Pleasant”

This was my first experience with physical therapy, but I can say it was amazing. I was seen for hip flexor tendonitis and was feeling bummed about my ability to get back into running. The staff (especially my therapist – Erin) were positive and supportive throughout the process, and they helped me overcome the mental hurdles to recovery as well as the physical ones – and the mental ones can certainly be bigger!

As far as the therapy itself, the office was well-equipped, neat, and clean. They have 2 big pools for aquatic therapy, which was amazing! The therapists always check in with how you are doing each session, and they seem to really customize and change your treatment according to what you need. They were always able to answer my questions and seemed knowledgeable.

I can’t really say anything bad about my experience. I would certainly go back if I needed further help, and I would recommend this place to anyone.

  • My Mattress Was Killing My Back

    by Michael J. Velsmid, DPT, MS I should know better, but after spending $1,500 on a new mattress eight years ago, I was reluctant to throw it in the trash.  After a seventeen year professional career helping and advising people about treatment for back pain, even I did not recognize the importance of a good…

  • Why Do I Get ‘Stimulated’ During Physical Therapy?

    Physical Therapists often use electrical stimulation during treatments, which may initially be a bit scary or unknown for patients. We were always told to avoid sticking our fingers in the socket, right? So I wanted to break therapeutic electrical stimulation down to its simplest form and talk about when and why it’s a useful tool…
