I started at boston sports medicine in late 2011. I had an impingement in my shoulder from my daily high volume photography projects. I was able to work with the Dr. Kelley Barrett who then worked with me through a meniscal repair into the spring and helped me heal and was able to return to work in strong and confident physical state.

Sadly, in the summer of 2012 Dr. Barrett relocated to New York but I, happily, was able to continue to work with Dr. Jennifer Mohns through part 2 of my knee surgery / repair. I had a former ACL from my days at Boston College where the former ACL had to be removed and the bone grafts were implanted along with using a piece of my hamstring to replace the ACL.

Today, it is exactly week 6 and Dr. Mohns style is clearly different than Dr. Barrett’s but equally balanced in the care, patience, understanding, educating and most of all good positive healing energy. Dr. Mohns and the staff at Boston Sports Medicine  are positively unique and is a special place for healing.

I will continue to strongly share, recommend and use their resources. Thank you everyone especially Dr. Barrett and Dr. Mohns for your kindness and understanding to your patients and community. Keep up the great work and keep healing.

“Thank you Boston Sports Medicine!”

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.

“Most important – it works!”

After herniating a disc and spending nearly three months in PT with no success, I moved over to BSM. Over the next 8 months, the founder and owner, Dr. Mike Velsmid, guided me back to stability. First using aqua-therapy (there are two therapeutic pools on site in Allston), then more traditional land therapy techniques, I slowly recovered and avoided surgery!

Mike and Kathy Hartsell and the rest of his team are tremendously knowledgeable, well trained, kind, patient and truly care about the health and welfare of their patients. Unlike previous PT experiences, BSM customizes and individualizes their care. I have recommended them to all my family, friends, and acquaintances who have any minor or major injury, including my 14 year old son.

“Tremendously knowledgeable, well trained, kind, patient and truly care”

Extremely thorough, professional and knowledgeable.

I have had multiple injuries in the past few years. Boston Sports Medicine has consistently helped me recover quickly. The staff, in all of their locations, is incredibility sensitive and professional.

“The best decision I ever made!”

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”

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 would definitely recommend it to anyone”

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 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 Mohns and with Stacey Choquette 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 Mohns and Stacey Choquette. 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!

“So accommodating and really care about you”

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 was able to resume serious training in a matter of weeks!”

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 highly recommend BSM to anyone for rehab”

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”

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”

  • My Mattress Was Killing My Back

    by Michael J. Velsmid, DPT, MS I should know better, but after spending $1,500 on a new mattress eight years ago, I was reluctant to throw it in the trash.  After a seventeen year professional career helping and advising people about treatment for back pain, even I did not recognize the importance of a good…

  • Why Do I Get ‘Stimulated’ During Physical Therapy?

    Physical Therapists often use electrical stimulation during treatments, which may initially be a bit scary or unknown for patients. We were always told to avoid sticking our fingers in the socket, right? So I wanted to break therapeutic electrical stimulation down to its simplest form and talk about when and why it’s a useful tool…
