It’s so awesome to work with a physical therapist who understands competitive athletes. Last summer, I crashed hard at a track bike racing clinic right before I was scheduled to start training for my cyclocross racing season; the crash screwed up my back and made cycling–particularly, intense efforts–really painful. After doing physical therapy with Sara at Boston Sports Medicine, though, the pain lessened and I was able to resume serious training in a matter of weeks!

I had my ACL replaced in July, and I have been working with Danielle to recover. It has been a great experience. My knee is noticeably better after every visit. Even when I have had set-backs, Danielle is always positive and encouraging.

The team at Boston Sports Medicine are very knowledgeable and friendly. They are always willing to work with you in scheduling appointments. I’ve never had a problem rescheduling when I get caught at work or another last minute commitment.

If you need a physical therapist, I would recommend checking out Boston Sports Medicine. I couldn’t be happier!

“I couldn’t be happier”

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.

Super convenient hours (open before and after work), extremely nice and knowledgeable staff, facility and equipment are clean and modern.

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”

This was my first experience with physical therapy, but I can say it was amazing. I was seen for hip flexor tendonitis and was feeling bummed about my ability to get back into running. The staff (especially my therapist – Erin) were positive and supportive throughout the process, and they helped me overcome the mental hurdles to recovery as well as the physical ones – and the mental ones can certainly be bigger!

As far as the therapy itself, the office was well-equipped, neat, and clean. They have 2 big pools for aquatic therapy, which was amazing! The therapists always check in with how you are doing each session, and they seem to really customize and change your treatment according to what you need. They were always able to answer my questions and seemed knowledgeable.

I can’t really say anything bad about my experience. I would certainly go back if I needed further help, and I would recommend this place to anyone.

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.

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!

“Highly Recommended!”

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.

“A thoroughly dedicated, and compassionate therapist”

I had pretty serious ankle injury and was struggling to get back into my daily routine. I worked with Erin twice a week, who was fantastic. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the injury and PT but had a wonderful personality. The whole team at BSM are fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone. I am back to playing competitive soccer and have Erin/BSM Team to thank!!

“BSM is a class act!”

I am overwhelmed by the professionalism and skill of the both Becky and Dave at this location! My therapy has been with Becky and my condition improved dramatically. The atmosphere was relaxed and upbeat. The personalities of these two therapists added to the overall therapy. I am not one to make therapy appointments but going here has made me want to keep my appointments.

My highest recommendation for either Becky or Dave at this location!! They are skilled, knowledgable and quite enjoyable.

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.
