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 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 and with Stacey 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 and Stacey. 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!

Dr. Erin Looney is a miracle worker! Actually she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled at her job. I went to BSM on the recommendation of two friends. Last summer I was 3/4 of the way through training from my first Marathon and I suffered a serious calf strain.  Erin nursed me back to health using a number of different methods.

What I found most helpful, besides her physical therapy, was her emotional support. As a first time marathoner I was a headcase; her calm and confident approach was exactly what I needed. I crossed the finish line in Chicago and she was one of the first people I thought of. I didn’t have even a touch of pain in my calf over the 26.2 miles- everything else hurt but that didn’t stop the smile on my face.

I’m now at about the same time frame before the Boston Marathon. Thanks to the stretching techniques she taught me I have every intention of making it to the starting line injury free.

This isn’t just a review, it’s a THANK YOU!

In August I managed to break my arm while on vacation in Hungary. While I did get treatment at an emergency room, I was not seen by an orthopedist until 2 weeks later and did not start PT until the following week. I had felt that I was behind in my recovery when I started working with Meaghan H. at BSM.

Meaghan was wonderful to work with as we went from recovering movement and flexibility to strength. We used different exercises and equipment over time as I improved. Meaghan never pushed me more than I could handle – indeed she stopped me at times to make sure I didn’t do too much and cause a setback.

Throughout the time we worked together Meaghan was a total professional and made the experience as enjoyable as possible. I am now pain-free, have full movement and full strength as well. I highly recommend Meaghan and BSM for PT (in fact, I’m going back to them for a knee problem I developed)

PS – BSM is easily reachable by public transportation.

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”

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.

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 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.

Although I have worked with many of the therapists at Boston Sports Medicine (and they have all been amazing,) I cannot say enough about Stacey C. Not only is she highly competent in her PT duties, but personally she is very affable and truly seems to care about her patients. I have been in and out of PT for the past year and a half and unfortunately began somewhere other than BSM. I can honestly say that if I had originally started here, I think I would be pain-free by now. Not only are their facilities clean and state of the art, but they have two pools with built in treadmills for water training.

If you are in need of PT, for whatever reason, look no further. BSM is the best I have experienced and the trainers are incredible. (And if Stacey has appointments available, you will never be disappointed… sore, yes… but also grateful because you know she will get you back to full form!)

“Look no further. BSM is the best I have experienced.”

I am a ballet dancer and I go to Boston Sports Medicine to receive dance specific rehab for a dislocated kneecap. I receive treatment from David Merson (PT) and Katherine Hartsell (PTA). David and Kathy work closely together to provide me with the best care I could possibly receive! They are both so knowledgeable and really nice. I have improved so much since I first started at Boston Sports Medicine. I am more aware of my body now, and Kathy is helping me with my core strength, turnout, alignment, and so much more!. I always look forward to my appointments and I would definitely recommend coming to Boston Sports Medicine if you are a dancer! 🙂

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!

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!

  • 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…
