I very rarely post reviews but feel the need to comment on the service that I’ve received from Boston Sports Medicine in Watertown, MA. I was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and went to see Evie and can’t express how impressed I am with her expertise.

When I have gone in and have made what I think are irrelevant comments about something I have done that has caused pain or an issue with my shoulder, Evie has repeatedly been able to pin point the exact location of the pain and the cause. She actually figured out a condition that I had before I went to my surgeon and she was spot on with what I was diagnosed with. I am continually impressed but her knowledge. The entire staff at the office is professional, polite and accommodating to the patients they see. At times there are quite a few patients being worked on at the same time but I have never felt that I was being rushed or neglected.

If I have another injury I know where I will be heading. Thanks for all of the hard work and special care you give!

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 visited Boston Sports Medicine for help recovering from hip surgery to repair a torn labrum. I selected this facility due to the excellent recommendation from my chiropractor and the fact that they have aquatic therapy. I was in desperate need of help. When I started, I was barely able to walk, rotate my leg left or right or stand for any prolonged period of time. To begin treatment, I was evaluated by Dr. Erin Looney. She was very thorough, kind, and understood my concerns and hesitations.

Twice a week for several months, I underwent aquatic therapy and slowly but surely under Erin’s guidance, I regained more movement in my hip. What I found most comforting about being under her care was that she adjusted the treatment plan based on how my body was responding. She tailored each session to ensure I protected the joint as it was healing but also maintained steady progress to guarantee that my healing proceeded positively.

Having been treated in a different therapy practice before my surgery, I can assure you that Erin is very knowledgeable about the human body and body mechanics. Coupled with her pleasant personality you know you are in good hands.

Don’t hesitate to see her if you are experiencing a physical limitation and in need of physical therapy. You won’t be disappointed.

“You won’t be disappointed”

I first started going to Boston Sports Medicine for post surgery rehabilitation. The entire staff was fantastic from the moment I walked in. Most of my time was spent with Erin – she was amazing. Her incredible breadth of knowledge, kindness and commitment to my rehabilitation was outstanding. She worked with me every step of the way. She provided a variety of techniques for my rehab including aqua therapy, different types of massage and stretching & strengthening exercises. In addition to the treatment she provided in the clinic, Erin also taught me a variety of exercises that I continue do at home to this day.

The team at Boston Sports Medicine is truly unparalleled. If you find yourself in the unfortunate need of physical therapy, they are absolutely the team to work with.

So happy that BSM helped my 16 yo get back to his hockey and prepare for Baseball season when we thought he pulled his glute. After several weeks of PT with Becky and Danielle he was more than ready to get back to the ice. And thankfully, he’s ready for baseball season too because of the exercises they taught him.

“Excellent Quality”

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”

I am a 32 year old male, middle to long distance runner. 6 weeks into a critical training plan for an October marathon I was experiencing significant heel pain in my right foot. I was referred to Boston Sports Medicine by my running coach for the heel pain. Prior to checking in with BSM, I went to my PCP for a check up on my heel. X-rays showed nothing, and the doctor believed I was suffering from a bout of Plantar Fasciitis. Unconvinced this was the right prognosis I scheduled an appointment at BSM.

The facility is clean and cozy. The staff very friendly and helpful. I was welcomed and immediately introduced to my PT Andrew Provost. He did a general intake on my health and activity level and inquired to why I was there. Andrew was able to trouble shoot my injury within minutes to what he thought to be Achilles Tendinopathy. This is an acute overuse injury that is common in runners. We started treatment at once which included manual therapy as well as exercises and stretches. I was skeptical not of the treatment, but more if it would take hold as I was extremely active and training hard during this time. We stuck with it, and with 2 visits weekly and continued care at home I was able to stick to my training plan while improving function in my injured heel. I ran my marathon as planned and made my goal time that I had trained so hard for.

Certainly without the help of Andrew and BSM I would not have succeeded. I would highly recommend BSM to anyone who is need of physical therapy care.

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”

Stacy is a wonderful therapist that is understanding and willing to work with my pain level. She is very genuine and always smiling. She is always willing to lend a helping hand to all therapists around the clinic. I highly recommend working with Stacy when you come to Boston Sports Medicine in Allston.

“I highly recommend working with Stacy”

I began going to Boston Sports Medicine for various injuries I got while training for a marathon. Even as someone who tries to take responsibility for my own health, there is still no substitute for gifted and attentive professionals to help you make decisions, weigh options and clue you in to the way your body works. I learned so much about my own health and how to take better care of myself. I never felt rushed or brushed off – always listened to and taken seriously by practitioners who really seem to love what they do.

PTs really give one on one care and pay attention to you and your injury. They are very experienced as well, and have the latest equipment. I have a lot of confidence in them!

“I never felt rushed or brushed off”

Extremely thorough, professional and knowledgeable.

I have had multiple injuries in the past few years. Boston Sports Medicine has consistently helped me recover quickly. The staff, in all of their locations, is incredibility sensitive and professional.

“The best decision I ever made!”

My experience with Dr. Velsmid and his team at Boston Sports Medicine has been nothing short of excellent. I’ve been working with the physical therapists in the Somerville location for about six months as I recovered from shoulder surgery. From the very beginning the whole team has been friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. By the end of my first visit they had correctly diagnosed my injury (later confirmed as correct) and developed a course of treatment. After surgery, they worked with me step by step through a very successful rehab.

Helping me get healthy has been their clear priority for day one, and they have the experience and expertise to make it happen. Highly recommended!

“Highly Recommended!”
