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!

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.

I hurt my hip while mountain biking and was experiencing a lot of pain on long rides or intense efforts. I initially went to a PT in Kendall Sq. and, after 3 months of PT for what they diagnosed as a muscle strain, I felt that I had plateaued. I wasn’t able to race or ride often and the PT clinic wasn’t interested in investigating what else could be wrong. On the recommendation of some other cyclists who had seen Sara Bresnick, I switched over to BSM.

After feeling that the PTs at the last clinic were so dismissive, I was relieved that Sara is genuinely invested in figuring out what the problem is and getting me fixed up. She diagnosed that my pelvis is out of alignment, which the previous PT never even checked for, and is likely the root of the ongoing discomfort and pain that I’ve been experiencing. We have a treatment plan and she is covering all the bases by sending me to an ortho to rule out the possibility of a more severe injury. It’s such a relief to feel like I’ll be able to ride my bike comfortably again in the near future and it’s especially helpful to have a PT who understands and appreciates my goals with riding and racing.

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”

I’ve been to Boston Sports Medicine for two separate rehabs now, and would certainly use them again in the future. I first started going in Spring 2011 for my shoulder, where I worked with a few therapists to rebuild strength from a surgery the year before. I felt appropriately pushed and challenged when necessary to reach new strength and flexibility goals.

When I returned in Spring 2012 for a different injury, everyone there remembered me (and hoped that I wasn’t coming back for the same thing). We’ve worked to improve my range of motion and strength of my sprained wrist while allowing me to continue playing the sport I love – ultimate [frisbee]. My therapist very easily came up with ways for me to work on my shoulder strength as well, when I was unable to grip weights due to my wrist injury. While I hope I don’t need much sports rehab in the future, giving my track record it seems very likely. And I will certainly use Boston Sports Medicine again!

I have been to 3 different PT places over my life and Boston Sports Medicine is definitely the best. They have all the equipment, a pool and they do lots of hands on. Kathy Hartsell is my PTA and she is amazing. She has done ultrasound, ice, e-stem and massage and my shoulder is 100%! They are very organized, they take care of all of the paperwork and everyone says hi to you and asks how you are when you walk through the doors, even if they aren’t your pt person.

If you need PT, go to Boston Sports, hands down. I look forward to going to PT each week because I get to go and relax, even though I am working really hard. Even when Kathy makes me do really things I usually laugh about how much I hate an exercise but love it at the same time. They push you hard but they always ask how you are doing so they don’t push you so you hurt yourself more. They are the best.

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 have gone here for a number of different sports injuries and rehab. Each time they do a thorough exam of the injury and outline a rehab plan. I like that it’s a smaller place and you aren’t sent with an assistant over to machines to do your rehab.

For the most part you are working one on one with the PT who has devised an individualized plan for you. They are also very good about accommodating last minute visits,- this has been very helpful to me in the days before a game or race.

“Individualized attention”

I wanted to send a quick thanks to Jenny at Boston Sports Medicine. She worked with me to set a plan in place to get me back to training for a marathon. Although never enjoyable to be in rehab, working with Jenny and her positive attitude and professionalism made it easier for me to come in every week and strive to get better and back to racing.

Thank you Jenny, and thank you Boston Sports Medicine for providing state of the art techniques; including the running pools.

“Positive attitude and professionalism”

The entire staff is super nice and welcoming. I’ve worked with Jenny for PT and would highly recommend her. I’m a runner and I chronically sprain my ankle… also have always had pains in my ankle and knee joints. Jenny really took the time to figure out exactly what was going on and also explained to me how I was straining my body. She worked with me one on one and taught me exercises that I could do on my own, I could feel my lower body slowly getting stronger. I haven’t sprained my ankle since Ive started seeing her! Jenny is awesome!

“Boston Sports Medicine is amazing!”

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”

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”

  • 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…
