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!”

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!”

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 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 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”

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 recently worked with Dave and his intern Meghan for the last few months and they were just fabulous. Dave knew exactly what to do from the beginning and made sure that I left every visit feeling better than when I walked in.

After a few weeks, Dave asked if I minded if his intern did the sessions and he would observe and step in when necessary. Meghan was great, she did a lot of hands on work with me and really focused on my shoulder but also other components that play a role with the injury (e.g. neck, hand). They also made sure that I was progressing appropriately through the process and pushed me with encouragement when I needed it.

Dave not only is a great physical therapist but a great teacher and I feel that with his guidance Meghan will be very successful in this field as well. I strongly recommend anyone looking for a physical therapist to make an appointment here, you will not be disappointed.

“I strongly recommend anyone looking for a physical therapist to make an appointment here”

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.

“The water therapy treatment pool is second to none”

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.

“I can say it was amazing”

I had my ACL replaced in July, and I have been working with Danielle to recover. It has been a great experience. My knee is noticeably better after every visit. Even when I have had set-backs, Danielle is always positive and encouraging.

The team at Boston Sports Medicine are very knowledgeable and friendly. They are always willing to work with you in scheduling appointments. I’ve never had a problem rescheduling when I get caught at work or another last minute commitment.

If you need a physical therapist, I would recommend checking out Boston Sports Medicine. I couldn’t be happier!

“I couldn’t be happier”

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”

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!
