I have been to many PT offices over the years and these guys are the best. Very clean busy office, I originally saw them while pregnant with my second and having major back issues (two flared herniated discs), saw them again during my third pregnancy and did the water therapy, they have two salt water pools and the treatment is great. I return from time to time with lower back or neck issues and after a few visits I am good to go.

“Boston Sports Medicine is great”

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!”

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 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 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 will certainly use Boston Sports Medicine again!”

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 went to Boston Sports Medicine in Allston, MA for a strained hip flexor last year. At that time, I couldn’t really run and was pretty miserable about the constant soreness in my hip. I worked with Mike, with Jennifer Mohns and with Stacey Choquette and I cannot even express how grateful I am for all that they have done for me. Mike worked with me initially but then Jenny and Stacy were my regular PTs and they were both absolutely awesome. I have nothing but the highest praise for both Jenny and Stacey – they used a variety of techniques to work on my hips (and later this year on my feet for plantar fasciitis), and they had me back up and running and competing in half-marathons in a couple of months. They not only know exactly what to do and how to best work with your body, but they are so accommodating and really care about you and that you improve. They were always so excited when I reported back with any improvements, and provided constant follow-up, feedback and advise. Jennie even emailed me some extra ankle exercises to do at home when I strained a tendon in my ankle – not severely enough to warrant PT sessions, but enough to need strengthening, and the exercises have been great in helping me gain some more strength.

As someone who works out and has been through various injuries, I can say without any reservations that BSM has the best PTs – and if you go then definitely ask for Jenny Mohns and Stacey Choquette. They’ll have you back up and working out again in no time, and they’ll follow up to make sure you’re doing ok after finishing your sessions!

“So accommodating and really care about you”

I’ve been going to Boston Sports Medicine for a few months now to rehab my knee/ACL after surgery. My physical therapist is Dave and he’s great! He’s patient, explains things really well and everyone in the office is friendly and knowledgeable.They also give great tips on the little things that I can do better as I build up my knee strength and get back to normal.

PT at Boston Sports has definitely helped my recovery – I don’t think I’d be as far ahead without them. My orthopedic surgeon has noted the great progress I’ve been making – thanks to the help of Boston Sports Medicine!

“I don’t think I’d be as far ahead without them”

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 highly recommend BSM to anyone for rehab”

So happy that BSM helped my 16 yo get back to his hockey and prepare for Baseball season when we thought he pulled his glute. After several weeks of PT with Becky and Danielle he was more than ready to get back to the ice. And thankfully, he’s ready for baseball season too because of the exercises they taught him.

“Excellent Quality”

I have been in the healing process from a herniated Lumbar Disc and in traditional PT at a different location for many months. With continual flare ups, it was recommended that I stop PT to see if these episodes would cease and my pain decrease. The symptoms were reduced.

After a rest and in order to restart the strengthening process, my neurologist recommended water therapy. It was in this search that I discovered Dr. David at Boston Sports Medicine.

After an extensive evaluation, David was able to diagnose certain problems and come up with a treatment plan that is working and helping me become pain free. David is a true miracle worker! He is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable about body mechanics and explains with confidence the reasoning behind all the exercises and maneuvers. Pairing his knowledge, his compassion and his ability and willingness to truly look at you as a human being who is in need of physical help is a great gift to us as patients. David should definitely be considered if you are looking for a great Physical Therapist.

“David should definitely be considered if you are looking for a great Physical Therapist”

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!

  • Women’s Health Physical Therapy

    Finding a physical therapist that specializes in women’s health can be difficult. It is a highly specialized area of treatment. Many women are faced with unique physical challenges that they try to convince themselves are “normal” and “expected” based on being female.
