As a squash pro and avid athlete, I need all my limbs and joints working at the highest level.  Six months ago, I was suffering from inflamed stabilizer muscles around my right patella, compounded by tendonitis in that same knee.

After working at Boston Sports Medicine for a short time, I was recovered enough to start exercising again. Then, on a vacation trip, some family and I climbed Wright Peak, number 16 on the Adirondack High Peaks list. The majority of the 3.8-mile climb is moderate grade, though most of that is over treacherous rocks instead of smooth dirt. The last mile is extremely steep, and the last half mile is one brutally tough rock face. I made it to the top in an hour and 45 minutes of hard, exhausting, and almost continual hiking, and I didn’t feel any pain or discomfort in my knee. The way down was equally treacherous, but still nothing in that knee after another hour and 45.

That climb was perhaps the best testament I could have found to prove how far both of the injuries to my right knee have improved. Everyone I worked with at BSM did a phenomenal job getting me back healthy, able to get back on the squash court, and now able to push myself for three hours like I did that day, and I’m ecstatic about it. I’ve had nothing but the best to say about BSM since I started going,

Hopefully my body remains healthy, but should any injuries come up again, I’m not going anywhere else.

I recently completed physical therapy treatment at Boston Sports Medicine in Watertown and would highly recommend their services. This fall, I fractured my shoulder 3 1/2 weeks before an 8 day bike trip in Italy and was desperate to get in shape to ride but was told that I probably couldn’t ride since the fracture would take 6 weeks to heal. Fortunately, I found Sara Bresnick at Boston Sports Medicine in Watertown.

As a professional cyclist and physical therapist, she knew just what to do to build the strength back in my shoulder. By following Sara’s exercise plan, I was able to ride through the hills of Piedmont, Italy, which impressed my doctor. Sara’s encouragement was just as important as the physical therapy she performed. I saw this in her interactions with me as well as her other patients. While helping me with my shoulder, she also pinpointed other problems in my neck that were stress related and gave me appropriate exercises. I am still performing my exercises and feel great!

If I am in need of physical therapy again, I would go back to Boston Sports Medicine.

I recently had rotator cuff surgery, and I have been receiving PT from David, a thoroughly dedicated, and compassionate therapist. He is very insightful and patient, and is very professional. I would recommend this therapist and this facility to anyone who is trying to recuperate from surgery, an injury or any type of problem needing help in feeling better. Sarah in the Watertown office is also an excellent therapist as well.

I absolutely LOVED my time at Boston Sports Medicine, the staff is super friendly and knows how to make you feel right at home so you’re comfortable. I have tried other physical therapy offices and no where was anywhere good as Boston Sports Med.

My therapist, Meaghan, was absolutely amazing, and I feel that with her help I made a full recovery from my injury, and I am much stronger than I ever was before. Now I can go back to dancing my heart out 24/7!

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!”

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”

Boston Sports Medicine was recommended to me by a friend after I injured my shoulder. I could not have been more happy with my experience as a patient there. The staff is fun, energetic, knowledgeable, and they make the road to recovery an enjoyable experience. I cannot write about BSM without mentioning my physical therapist, Meaghan Harwood. Meaghan is an excellent therapist in that she is extremely intelligent, kind, and entertaining. Meaghan quickly made me feel comfortable at the Allston office and while she can crack the whip during the workouts, she knows how to keep the mood light and fun. I highly recommend Boston Sports Medicine in Allston, the staff, and especially Meaghan Harwood.

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 had pretty serious ankle injury and was struggling to get back into my daily routine. I worked with Erin twice a week, who was fantastic. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the injury and PT but had a wonderful personality. The whole team at BSM are fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone. I am back to playing competitive soccer and have Erin/BSM Team to thank!!

“BSM is a class act!”

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!

It’s so awesome to work with a physical therapist who understands competitive athletes. Last summer, I crashed hard at a track bike racing clinic right before I was scheduled to start training for my cyclocross racing season; the crash screwed up my back and made cycling–particularly, intense efforts–really painful. After doing physical therapy with Sara Bresnick at Boston Sports Medicine, though, the pain lessened and I was able to resume serious training in a matter of weeks!

“Understands competitive athletes”

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.
