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.

Went here due to a shoulder injury (I’ve had a few of them) and worked with Jenny Mohns. She was great and got me back to gym working out and playing sports again. She always listened to how I said my arm felt and adjusted our program accordingly when we needed to try something new, and she kept me positive when I got frustrated.

I actually enjoyed when I went in for PT instead of it being a pain. They have some of the newest equipment to help with healing and all the assistants were so nice and so helpful as well. It’s great to work with someone who you are really confident knows what they are doing. I noticed drastic improvement from when I started. She always answered my emails promptly with any questions I had and still follows up with me every so often. I hope to never have to see Jenny again due to an injury, but if I do something stupid again, I’ll be right back there in a second.

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.

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.

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 have been at Boston Sports Medicine for about a year now and I would have been out a lot sooner if I didn’t keep getting injured. The work I have done with Becky has helped me fully recover from two different knee surgeries (Torn ACL & Meniscus) and we are now currently trying to get my shoulders back to 100%. Becky has provided incredible care, guidance and treatment during my ACL recovery. As well as encouraging me not to give up when it was necessary for a second surgery on my knee.

We are now make tremendous strides on my shoulder recovery and we hope I will be cleared very soon! Not only has Becky been great but the whole staff has been helpful and accommodating to me and others patients. These are the many reasons why I choose Boston Sports Medicine on Elm Street and I will continue to go back anytime I have a Injury (which seems to happen a lot with me).

Thank You Becky & Lauren!!

“Incredible care, guidance and treatment”

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.

Stacy is a wonderful therapist that is understanding and willing to work with my pain level. She is very genuine and always smiling. She is always willing to lend a helping hand to all therapists around the clinic. I highly recommend working with Stacy when you come to Boston Sports Medicine in Allston.

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 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.

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 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.
