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”

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 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.

I recently had rotator cuff surgery, and I have been receiving PT from David, a thoroughly dedicated, and compassionate therapist. He is very insightful and patient, and is very professional. I would recommend this therapist and this facility to anyone who is trying to recuperate from surgery, an injury or any type of problem needing help in feeling better. Sarah in the Watertown office is also an excellent therapist as well.

I was riding my bike to work when I got hit by a car and broke my leg (tibia and fibula). I’ve been coming to Boston Sports Medicine twice a week since July, and I can’t say enough good things about this place.

I didn’t really know what to expect from physical therapy, since I’d never needed it before, but I got a good vibe from this place instantly. The staff is incredibly friendly and I immediately felt welcomed. You can tell they all enjoy what they do, and working together, which fosters a really positive environment for patients.

I’ve formed a great relationship with my physical therapist, Kathy, who carefully tailored a plan to my injury and to my own specific goals. She’s always able to answer my questions, and provide additional info about the exercises and my bones and muscle groups, all while taking a sincere interest in my recovery and making the visits fun. Her care has definitely helped me get back on track ahead of schedule.

The office is often busy, but never seems overcrowded, and is always very clean. They’ve got a full arsenal of exercise equipment and tools (from treadmills to yoga mats and medicine balls), plus two therapy pools with underwater treadmills. (Seriously the coolest thing ever.)

I really enjoy going. I know I’m not just healing and getting stronger, but learning a lot about how to properly exercise and take care of myself for the rest of my life. I’ll be sad when I’m finally discharged!

If I ever need physical therapy again while I’m living in Boston, I know I’m coming back here.

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 anytime — highly recommended.

“Highly Recommended”

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.

I highly recommend the Somerville location of Boston Sports Medicine for anyone needing physical therapy. Dr. Rebecca (Becky) Lingerfelt gets an A+ for being knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. She incorporates and tracks each patient’s medical history and diagnosis into her treatment plans.  Danielle and Ned also are very professional and knowledgeable.

The facility is accessible by car and the Red Line, and it is a modest and clean environment in which you will always feel welcome regardless of your age. I suffered severe sciatic trauma starting in May but I am graduating in December pain free and with excellent results.

“You will always feel welcome regardless of your age”

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 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”

The staff is great and are very professional, kind, and knowledgable.

For PT I have been working with Dr. Erin Looney for about a year and a half due to structural hip issues and she’s fantastic.  She has a very extensive knowledge of the body and will explain everything to me in a very helpful way.  I started going to her before I had hip surgery and she helped me prepare my body really well leading up to surgery as well as recover afterward.

They also have Chiropractice services with Dr. Mael who has been incredibly wonderful in assisting me with my back, neck, and shoulders.

The facility is updated and clean and there are even single person pools for aquatic therapy!

“I’ve had nothing but wonderful experiences with Boston Sports Medicine”

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”

  • 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. Common examples include: discomfort in the abdomen, lower back, bottom, and hips, leaking…
