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”

The staff at BSM are great. They really take the time to find out what’s going on. I highly recommend this group for sport related injuries.

I visited Boston Sports Medicine after becoming injured while training for a marathon. Unlike the doctors I saw, who seemed more interested in giving me drugs and getting me out the door, the staff at BSM helped me to better understand my body, providing information that shed new light on my injury. I was given practical tools (such as stretches and strength training exercises) to prevent a reoccurrence of injury and I sat down on several occasions with my health care provider to receive feedback on the pros/cons of my training schedule. They were extremely thorough and attentive, and even went so far as to conduct weekly follow-up communication with me after treatment to insure that the strength training and stretching exercises we’d discussed were serving their purpose. I would strongly recommend BSM to anyone seeking quality physical therapy care and would certainly return to them if I required medical services in the future.

“Great Service & Staff”

After herniating a disc and spending nearly three months in PT with no success, I moved over to BSM. Over the next 8 months, the founder and owner, Dr. Mike Velsmid, guided me back to stability. First using aqua-therapy (there are two therapeutic pools on site in Allston), then more traditional land therapy techniques, I slowly recovered and avoided surgery!

Mike and Kathy Hartsell and the rest of his team are tremendously knowledgeable, well trained, kind, patient and truly care about the health and welfare of their patients. Unlike previous PT experiences, BSM customizes and individualizes their care. I have recommended them to all my family, friends, and acquaintances who have any minor or major injury, including my 14 year old son.

“Tremendously knowledgeable, well trained, kind, patient and truly 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”

I went to Boston Sports Medicine after seeing an ortho about what I feared to be a knee bursitis. I’ve been through a lot of PT before thanks to two torn ACLs and a partial foot ligament tear. I met with David who did a thorough assessment of the condition of my knee.

Not only did I find him to be totally honest, but I was so surprised to learn how well he knew the ins and outs of my health care coverage! He recommended PT only once or twice (so as to not waste my coverage plan options) and gave me excellent advice about to protect my knee in my upcoming rugby game.

After that, we got to work on moving the swelling out of my knee and what to do on my own. A week later, I was good to go! On top of all of this, David followed up with me via email to check in on my knee.

Bottom line: go see David! He’s fantastic, has great in-depth knowledge about athletic training, and is a genuine guy to boot.

“David at Boston Sports Medicine is great”

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”

Ok, so I had some pretty major injuries after getting run over by a car! Anyway my ankle was MESSED and I didn’t even realize it till the Percocet wore off a month later. Nothing MRI torn or x-ray broken but unable to walk. Also in the back of my mind I was hoping I was going to be able to ride my bike as soon as possible so I could still be in shape and do some racing in the Fall (injury in March).

Well, a friend referred me to see Sara Bresnick, former women’s World Cup Mountain Bike Pro. Whether it was Sara’s sense of humor or actual skill, I left feeling better after Day 1. Obviously it was a long road going in twice a week for a few months, but I am really happy with the way the PT went and how quickly Sara was able to help me recover and get on my bike so quickly without impairing my recovery time.

For a while I was worried I’d never be able to walk without pain again but eventually I was running and hiking again too. Sara was always able to help me find solid appointment times and it was really great to go to a physical therapist who understood that I wanted to be active and athletic again and that healing this to 80% was not okay!

Anyway, if you are a serious athlete with an injury I highly recommend Sara Bresnick as someone who can coach you through the recovery process far better than I ever imagined.

“I left feeling better after Day 1”

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 was riding my bike to work when I got hit by a car and broke my leg (tibia and fibula). I’ve been coming to Boston Sports Medicine twice a week since July, and I can’t say enough good things about this place.

I didn’t really know what to expect from physical therapy, since I’d never needed it before, but I got a good vibe from this place instantly. The staff is incredibly friendly and I immediately felt welcomed. You can tell they all enjoy what they do, and working together, which fosters a really positive environment for patients.

I’ve formed a great relationship with my physical therapist, Kathy, who carefully tailored a plan to my injury and to my own specific goals. She’s always able to answer my questions, and provide additional info about the exercises and my bones and muscle groups, all while taking a sincere interest in my recovery and making the visits fun. Her care has definitely helped me get back on track ahead of schedule.

The office is often busy, but never seems overcrowded, and is always very clean. They’ve got a full arsenal of exercise equipment and tools (from treadmills to yoga mats and medicine balls), plus two therapy pools with underwater treadmills. (Seriously the coolest thing ever.)

I really enjoy going. I know I’m not just healing and getting stronger, but learning a lot about how to properly exercise and take care of myself for the rest of my life. I’ll be sad when I’m finally discharged!

If I ever need physical therapy again while I’m living in Boston, I know I’m coming back here.

“If I ever need physical therapy again while I’m living in Boston, I know I’m coming back here”

Went here due to a shoulder injury (I’ve had a few of them) and worked with Jenny Mohns. She was great and got me back to gym working out and playing sports again. She always listened to how I said my arm felt and adjusted our program accordingly when we needed to try something new, and she kept me positive when I got frustrated.

I actually enjoyed when I went in for PT instead of it being a pain. They have some of the newest equipment to help with healing and all the assistants were so nice and so helpful as well. It’s great to work with someone who you are really confident knows what they are doing. I noticed drastic improvement from when I started. She always answered my emails promptly with any questions I had and still follows up with me every so often. I hope to never have to see Jenny again due to an injury, but if I do something stupid again, I’ll be right back there in a second.

“I’ll be right back there in a second.”

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. This was the best experience I have ever had with a health care provider of any kind.

“Raises the bar”

I came to Boston Sports Medicine for help with an injured Pec / Rhomboid / Subscapularus combo from rowing. Both Jenny and Erin were very knowledgeable and always willing to listen to what was going on. They helped me build up enough strength to finally get back on the water with my teammates. They were always friendly and willing to fit me into their schedules whenever I needed treatment. I’d definitely recommend them to anymore looking for a great PT.

  • The Winding Road of Returning to Activity After A Concussion

    By: Michael Geiger, PT, DPT, ITPT In our most recent blog post in our concussion series, we introduced the idea of baseline measurements and the impact (no pun intended) they have on determining a patient’s trajectory towards recovery and returning to their regular activities. Today we will skip forward a bit in the process, beyond…

  • What Does Physical Therapy Concussion Care Involve?

    In unraveling the challenges of concussion management, practitioners start with understanding the patient’s baseline. Baseline refers to pre-injury abilities: concussion baseline measures commonly include cognition, balance, and vision. When managing concussions and formulating the plan of care, the health care provider’s goal is to achieve the patient’s baseline levels.   In sports, if an athlete…
