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”

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!”

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”

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!

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.

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 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.

“The entire staff was fantastic from the moment I walked in”

I’ve only had good experiences at Boston Spots Medicine. I tore my ACL and was really sad and unmotivated for the long rehab, but Stacy kept me motivated and the progress I made was amazing. Stacy is a miracle worker and very committed to all her patients. She is really nice and is very easy to talk to which makes you feel really comfortable. The facility is amazing and everyone working there is so nice and inviting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone needing any kind of physical therapy.

“I would definitely recommend it to anyone”

I spent some time at Boston Sports Medicine dealing with a pinched nerve. They were great! Very knowledgeable about what I needed, very friendly but professional approach, and most important, excellent results. I’d go back to see Becky and her team any time — highly recommended.

“Very friendly but professional approach”

I am a mountaineer (that would include rock and ice climbing) and a triathlete. I have a chronic back injury in the last ~8 years, and I have seen several PTs. I can really say that in my case, Dr. Velsmid’s approach is the best. He would understand the biomechanical problem, find an approach to adjust whatever is wrong, and above all – he explains the way things work. He pays attention to limitations – e.g. will try to focus on exercises that take reasonable time; would help an athlete keep on the routine and not stop doing sports.

Finally and most important – it works! After being limited in my abilities for about 4 month due to major injury, he brings me back into my beloved way of living – combining the sports that keep me happy.

“Most important – it works!”

I’ve been involved on many levels in competitive athletics and since I found this place a couple of years ago, I stopped shopping around for sports specific PT. I was tired of the hospital setting where it feels as if everything is rushed. The PT that I’ve seen for the various injuries sustained over the past few seasons is Dave M. (not sure I’m supposed to post last names) but he’s very experienced and has had a lot of involvement with some of the well known local sports teams. I highly recommend this place and Dave.

“I highly recommend this place”

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.
