I’ve treated there for various issues, initially receiving therapy for repetitive strain and a frozen shoulder several years ago – both with successful resolution. After arm & leg surgery in August 2011 that resulted in significant complications I returned. Dr. Erin Looney performed magic!
After several months of therapy on both arms for scar tissue and nerve damage, I was still in significant pain, enough so that I was unable to sleep through the night. Erin tried various approaches. While there was some improvement, after a few months of treatment, it looked as if there were no other options and I was told that I would have to terminate.
Erin continued to research, and a few weeks later had me return for a new treatment that produced amazing results. Without the cupping treatment, I would have become significantly limited in the use of my arms. I’m not only pain-free and back to normal range of motion, I’ve been inspired to begin and maintain a new life style.
Early on in therapy, they had me walking in the Aqua pool since I also had swelling in my legs from the surgery. I initially went 5 days a week, then 3 days before joining a health club and beginning Aqua aerobics. It was a turning point. I’m exercising regularly now and LOVE it, and about to participate in my 2nd 5K run/walkathon on September 23. Since I’m in my 60s, and just began any kind of regular exercise 9 months ago, this is no small feat and doable because of the continual support and encouragement of Erin, and other BSM therapists, Stacy and Kathy.
Erin has been kind, caring, and skillful. I am so grateful for her treatment and for Boston Sports Medicine. I recommend them highly, if you need physical therapy, they are the place to go.
