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’ve been going to Boston Sports Medicine for the last four months and have received excellent care — both working with the owner, Mike, and also with Stacey C. — I have been having severe pain and restricted movement due to arthritis in my knees and hips — both of which have been greatly improved since starting my rehab program with BSM. I started with the aquatherapy pool — that is simply amazing! I highly recommend BSM to anyone for rehab.

I worked with David and Evie – both of whom were great. Extremely professional and very attentive. I would also point out that they found a blood clot resulting from a recent surgery. Without their assistance I don’t think I would have identified this as a potential issue. Thank you both for all of your help.

I’ve treated there for various issues, initially receiving therapy for repetitive strain and a frozen shoulder several years ago – both with successful resolution. After arm & leg surgery in August 2011 that resulted in significant complications I returned. Dr. Erin Looney performed magic!

After several months of therapy on both arms for scar tissue and nerve damage, I was still in significant pain, enough so that I was unable to sleep through the night. Erin tried various approaches. While there was some improvement, after a few months of treatment, it looked as if there were no other options and I was told that I would have to terminate.

Erin continued to research, and a few weeks later had me return for a new treatment that produced amazing results. Without the cupping treatment, I would have become significantly limited in the use of my arms. I’m not only pain-free and back to normal range of motion, I’ve been inspired to begin and maintain a new life style.

Early on in therapy, they had me walking in the Aqua pool since I also had swelling in my legs from the surgery. I initially went 5 days a week, then 3 days before joining a health club and beginning Aqua aerobics. It was a turning point. I’m exercising regularly now and LOVE it, and about to participate in my 2nd 5K run/walkathon on September 23. Since I’m in my 60s, and just began any kind of regular exercise 9 months ago, this is no small feat and doable because of the continual support and encouragement of Erin, and other BSM therapists, Stacy and Kathy.

Erin has been kind, caring, and skillful. I am so grateful for her treatment and for Boston Sports Medicine. I recommend them highly, if you need physical therapy, they are the place to go.

“Boston Sports Medicine is excellent in all aspects”

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 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.

Kudos to my Physical Therapist (Dr. Lingerfelt), I am back in the game. I attended many sessions at their previous location (Twin City Plaza). Seriously, not to mention the work, professionalism, and skill, but the accommodation was unbelievable. Couple of times I had to change my appointment at the last minute and I am happy to say it was done without a single fuss. Indeed recommended; especially their new location at Davis Square.

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 at Boston Sports Medicine, though, the pain lessened and I was able to resume serious training in a matter of weeks!

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.

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 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”

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.
