"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I now have a better understanding of what I can do and the right way to do them. Having a total knee replacement was tough. I feel so much better now, thank you! The staff at OP was great. Cherie and Judy were very informative about my program. Thank you, Iggy and Alex. You are all great! I would tell anyone seeking physical therapy to go to Orthopaedics Plus for a great outcome."

"When I began my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I did not have much range in my arm and neck. I am now able to lift again! I am now doing trx rows and dead-lifts! The staff at OP are all so friendly and accommodating to the needs of the patients. For anyone thinking about Orthopaedics Plus for physical therapy I would recommend it. The care plans are tailored to the patient. They do not follow a one shoe fits all mentality. The staff at OP goes above and beyond to help their patients heal. "

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I am no longer in any pain. The range of motion in my hips has improved so that I can get on and off my bicycle more easily. I can also now do the frog and scissor kicks while swimming- all of this makes me feel younger! Ellevn Poveromo is the best ever. She explains well and listens attentively. She is exceptionally skilled. I trust her absolutely, and equally important she is kind, respectful, and has a great sense of humor. The aides who helped me- Lexi, Alex, and Monique were great. Scott and Jennifer are friendly, competent, and efficient. I don't know the other therapists but I recommend Ellen to anyone who asks. My thanks to everyone!"

"I was registered as a new patient by a newer staff member. I was originally told my insurance was accepted only to find out after one visit, that my insurance was not accepted there. I received a bill for the full amount of my visit, so I emailed through the contact us page and one of the owners Justin responded within few minutes and he just wrote off my balance and offered me a free consultation as a courtesy. Though I offered to pay the contracted rate he happily denied accepting it as a mistake on their part!! The best example of excellent customer service...!! I wish my insurance is accepted there and I really wanted the therapist Colleen to take care of my problem. She is too good and I love the place. Unfortunately I have to find a different center."

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus my life has changed drastically. My pain is to a lesser degree than before and I know how to deal with it more effectively. Justin has given me some home exercises to reinforce the exercises done at Orthopaedics Plus during my treatment. Justin and everyone at OP are so knowledgeable and helpful. The front staff is very polite and helpful. I have recommended Orthopaedics Plus to my friends who are seeking physical therapy."

"After being treated at Orthopaedics Plus PT, I have extreme relief from back pain and significantly improved muscle strength for work around the house. Everyone here listens to you about your good and bad results of the exercises that are done. If you are are thinking about PT, come and give this place a try, for my experience was wonderful and I had good accomplishments for my ailments "

"I've made a lot of progress at Orthopaedics Plus. It has been steady starting with "cannot walk" to fully functional. The entire staff is supportive and Todd has been reading the situation and making constant program adjustments to move me along. They are all very skilled at figuring out what is the best next step/exercise and they are all supportive. I cannot stress enough to people I know having difficulties that PT at OP is in many cases the best thing you can do BUT you have to be patient and work at it.
Frank M. from Bedford

"Since starting my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, it sure has made it easier to adjust to the discomfort when it appears.

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my quality of life has greatly increased. I am able to lay down and straighten my leg without pain. I am able to run without knee pain now as well. My favorite part about OP is the staff. Colleen is very amiable and easy to talk to. She always remembers the stories I tell her and responds with entertaining stories herself. I have always recommended OP to all of my peers. Ever since I met Al Visnick eight years ago, I have returned here for each of my new symptoms. Each clinician I have worked with has been knowledgeable, kind, and has gotten me back into running quickly. Thanks OP!"

"I worked with Al, and occasionally Todd, for almost a year to rehab my knee. Ultimately, my injury required surgery, but I was reassured that I had Al and the team at Orthopaedics Plus to prepare me pre-op and get me back to baseline post-op. Al was always so supportive and was my biggest fan throughout the rehab process and Todd always knew when to push my knee just a little bit more. Al and Todd have taught me so much about how to exercise to strengthen my knee to keep myself healthy in the future. When scheduling became difficult, the team at Orthopaedics Plus fit me in with no questions asked. I am so thankful that I chose Orthopaedics Plus and would recommend their practice without hesitation. "

"Amy Sbihli has taught me how to hold up and position my body when I am not wearing my scoliosis brace. This is very helpful not only to reduce pain when I’m not wearing my brace, but it is also important going forward in life. Eventually, I will be out of my brace and I will need to know how to hold my body correctly without it. Having these skills, I will be sure to have good posture and no pain throughout my life."

"After I tore my Achilles I felt that I may not be able to play sports again. However, because of the staff at OP, I feel confident that I'll be able to play again. Furthermore, I'm running and almost jumping at the same rate prior to my injury. I'm happy to say that the staff equipped me with the correct knowledge to continue to improve my abilities such that I can participate in any activity.
I didn't feel like I was coming in to do PT, rather that I was going to hang out with friends and workout. Every member of the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional in all of our sessions and I can honestly say that I enjoyed and looked forward to every session. If I had to pick a single best aspect about the clinicians, it would be the quality of the staff as human beings, they are all great.
If you are thinking about or dreading the fact of doing PT, going to OP will change your perspective on PT. I know that if I have any aliment in the future that may require PT, I would without hesitation schedule an appointment with OP"

The clinicians and staff at Orthopaedics Plus are always on time, very personal, and professional. I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do to keep my shoulder healthy. Orthopaedics Plus is the best, I was always glad to come. I will miss coming, thank you to all!"

"I had two hip surgeries last year, and since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I have made almost a full recovery with all of my normal activities (except for running but hopefully soon!). I felt taken care of and that I was in good hands. Carolyn is great! She always answered my questions and never made me feel like I was asking too many or that they were stupid. I'm glad I was matched with her because we laughed and joked the whole time. She is like a ball of sunshine every single day (crazy!). I would definitely recommend Orthopaedics Plus to anyone considering going for PT."

This is my second time at OP and I highly recommend it!!"

"When I arrived at Orthopaedics Plus 4 weeks after hip surgery, I was on crutches. After 6 weeks of therapy, my hip and right leg are 100% functioning. I can walk, run, swim and have returned to my active lifestyle. Amazing results in a short period! The staff at OP is personable and friendly, they're focused on you and your recovery. They always inquired about your pain level and progress. They listened and watched. If some routine was too much for you or too soon, they had a way around it. They never let you get discouraged, but made you feel you were moving forward. I felt that they really cared as if my progress was also theirs! I would tell someone who is thinking about PT to call and speak with OP and go for a consult. Check their reviews. It is well managed with an excellent staff and you will get better. "

I would definitely tell someone considering OP to go. After two separate injuries my pain completely went away in each case. "

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I am able to work with my arm/shoulder again since my fall back in February 2018, plus needing the shoulder surgery in August of 2018. Physical therapy has given me back pretty much full use of the shoulder. I feel comfortable and confident with the staff at OP, they are so friendly and welcoming. I will tell everyone that I had a great experience at Orthopaedics Plus and my rehab was a success. I would highly recommend this physical therapy facility."

The staff at OP really do care about the patient's progress. They are very helpful with home stretching and exercises. They are also very friendly and reasonable. I have already told about a dozen people who could use treatment to go to Orthopaedics Plus, including my wife who goes once a week!"

"Before my time at Orthopaedics Plus I was not able to enjoy my regular routine of exercise due to aches in my lower back. I had never been to physical therapy before, but my friend recommended Orthopaedics Plus. Carolyn and staff provided me with some exercises to do at home, and my back is very glad I came to Orthopaedics Plus! OP is a happy, helpful place. I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus without hesitation."

"Before my time at Orthopaedics Plus, I had back surgery performed to relieve sciatic pain that made it almost impossible to walk for 20 years. I was told rebuilding core, lower back strength, and flexibility was necessary. Day 1 evaluation and initial PT exercises highlighted only minor pain levels post surgery but revealed my weaknesses. The PT team mapped an amazing course to full recovery for me. After my 12 sessions I was able to resume daily activities I was not able to do for the past 3-4 years thanks to Carolyn, Ellen, and Monique. The staff at OP is amazing, explaining why I do a particular exercise and how it should be done correctly to help recovery. They pushed me through what needed to be done with a friendly smile and determination to make me well again, which made a huge difference. The Keet app is really helpful keeping me on point and up to date with my exercises. Carolyn provided a terrific set of exercises and the app documentation keeps me well focused. Thank you!! I would absolutely recommend Orthopaedics Plus for PT to anyone in need."

"I have seen Justin on quite a few occasions now for a variety of injuries. I first saw him when I was having lower back pain in 2016. After diagnosing me with hypermobility on my right side, he taught me stability exercises for my core so I could get back to powerlifting pain free. Fast forward to 2017 and I was back in seeing him for a nagging shoulder issue. I had rotator cuff tendonitis after having surgery on a labrum tear in my left shoulder a few years earlier. With this injury I was unable to bench press or do many day to day activities that depended on being able to raise my arm over my head. After a few months of working with Justin on strengthening my rotator cuff muscles and stabilizing my shoulder, I was back to working out and doing my day to day activities pain free. Most recently I was back in to see Justin for distal hamstring tendonitis. Prior to seeing Justin again, I was in immense pain when trying to deadlift or do any hamstring / hip hinge movement. As I am sure you are starting to see a theme here, after working with Justin for about 5 months he got me back up and running to where I can return to powerlifting again, pain free. I would categorize myself as being injury prone and I had been to 3-4 other physical therapists before finding Justin. What separates him and the rest of the practitioners at Orthopaedics Plus is that he was not satisfied until I was able to do every activity I enjoy doing pain free. In the past I had experienced PT's getting me pain free with normal walking and sitting activity, but Justin went above and beyond. After multiple successful stints with Orthopaedics Plus, I would not go anywhere else in the future and would recommend Justin and the rest of the staff to anyone that is rehabbing from an injury."

"Went to Orthopedics Plus in Beverly for shoulder and bicep injuries. Had two appointments per week for ~8-10 weeks with Rob Herron, one of their highly experienced and highly educated physical therapists. He helped me out tremendously over this period. My arm and shoulder are very much improved and he showed me what exercises to continue with at planet fitness to wrap up the recovery.
My PT at Orthopedics Plus in Beverly was worth every penny.

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I got my arm back! I had pain for years prior to my surgery in December of 2018 for a torn rotator cuff. Rob was so helpful and amazing in his approach to therapy for my shoulder. I have my range back and the pain I had for years is no longer there. The staff at OP are all super nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. They are a fantastic group that click! They are professional but not tense or stuffy while working in a very calm environment. I can't say enough about Rob, he really helped me, especially when I was really starting to get down about how long it takes. The first thing I would say to someone considering OP for physical therapy is "You'll love it over there. They are really helpful and knowledgeable!""

"Orthopaedics Plus has helped my back and shoulders. They educated me on how to position my body when performing strenuous activities, and I learned a number of strengthening exercises. I went from being unable to complete physical tasks involving my back, to being stronger than ever. My PT, Justin, is clearly experienced and knowledgeable about his work. He gave me the tools and knowledge to help myself after completing my treatment. I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus for anyone in the area in need of physical therapy."

"My story is that I developed a severe discomfort and painful sensation down through my right arm during exercising and playing sports to the point of total lack of normal function. Then a friend Al Visnick had recommended me to be seen by the Orthopaedics Plus staff for an evaluation and treatment. I met with Todd, Justin, Nick, Catherine and Alex for an evaluation and a treatment plan to address the condition and to my amazement I was treated and went through the prescribed exercise plan and in a matter of 3-4 weeks I felt I was 100% recovered and back to exercising and sporting activities! I commend the highly professional and courteous staff, Todd, Nick and Catherine for my very effective treatment and therapy program to get me back to my sporting activities and exercise routines! You guys are the best!
Thanks a lot!

"I was diagnosed with having a frozen left shoulder. My first appointment with Todd was in May. My range of motion was very limited. Even getting dressed was difficult and painful. I also could not reach for items that were above my head. I begin to have Physical Therapy twice a week. Todd was excellent in explaining my diagnosis. He was very patient in describing each exercise and what particular area it would help me with. Initially, I was nervous about the therapy being painful, however, I never experienced any pain. I am happy to say that I have gained so much mobility in my arm and shoulder. I am also now pain free. I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus to anyone in need of Physical Therapy. I had such a great experience."

"Colleen is a superb physical therapist. She made everything very clear - the exercises, their purpose....and she made them fun. The facility is great - well equipped, very clean. Making appointments and checking in was a breeze. I made a tremendous amount of progress recovering from rotator cuff surgery. Colleen knew when to push me, and when I needed to ease up. 5 out of 5 is not a high enough score for her abilities, commitment and ability to achieve positive results"

"I have used the services of Orthopaedics Plus in Beverly many times. Ellen Poveromo has worked with me through two knee replacements and I feel better than ever! Her expertise and guidance throughout the process have been invaluable. I continue to exercise at home with the program that Ellen designed for me and I continually refer friends and colleagues to Ellen for her excellent care.
Monique, Sarah, and Lexie have been wonderfully helpful as aides; setting me up on the bicycle and the machines with care. Barbara worked with me when I had a bout with sciatica many years ago. I still do the exercises that she taught me and enjoyed working with her expertise and great sense of humor.
Scott and Jennifer in the front office have been extremely helpful and friendly. From scheduling appointments, to answering questions, to billing insurance, they provide great customer service.
What I notice most about all the staff at OP is that they are very knowledgeable and caring professionals. You can trust that you’ll get the PT help that you need. The staff work together as a team, which shows in the superb treatment you get as a patient. I highly recommend OP.

Sailing, golf, yard work, and DIY home projects are now once again possible. At 78 I'm not going to become a star athlete, but I am now moving without pain and enjoying vigorous exercise. The knowledge and training of the staff at OP is so reassuring and their optimism is infectious! They are so encouraging, and Carolyn helped me enormously. Orthopaedics Plus is a great place with great staff, I would definitely recommend. "

"I came to Orthopaedics Plus post operation to build up strength in the impacted hip. As I have healed and worked with PTs at OP my strength is returning and I have ideas of things to do to continue to improve my outcomes. At OP everyone is friendly and professional. The environment also encourages friendly interactions between patients. The staff all seem very collegial and supportive of one another. The rehab technicians (most experience with Iggy) were very good and were certainly used to a high capacity, they do their best to keep patients busy and entertained. I would absolutely recommend OP to somebody thinking about physical therapy. It is an overall very good experience."

Working with the clinicians and staff at OP, there is an understanding and an appreciation for what I can do. There was never a sense that I was not working to my potential because what I have been given was always within my reach.

When I came in for my first appointment Todd greeted me with a smile on his face and I already felt more comfortable. Through the course of 5 months i was able to greatly decrease the pain in my back by coming here. Todd showed me so many different stretches and exercises I could do at home or the gym to keep up with my work out routines. He was very informative and could answers my questions fully. I always looked forward to coming to my appointments because the staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. Todd was a great physical therapist and I would definitely recommend him to anyone! "

"Since I began my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus my life has gone back to the way it was before my injury. I am able to go back to doing everything I was doing before I got hurt. The thing that I like most about working with the clinicians and staff at OP is how they are able to explain an exercise and critique it without seeming condescending. I would tell people thinking about seeing OP for physical therapy that the program works quite well. I definitely improved the state of my ankle and the environment is very professional, but doesn't feel cold. I would recommend OP."

"I received a PRP injection in my right knee with the hope it would regrow worn down cartilage. After 6 weeks I was given clearance to begin light physical activity. Being an avid member of a crossfit style gym, I did not understand what light physical activity truly meant, this is where Judy came in. At Orthopaedics Plus I learned that in order to recover I need to take it slow and realize that even when I am not in pain I can not overload my knee, and potentially undo the progress I made. I now understand that only time, with the help of targeted exercises will heal my knee.
The entire staff at OP was always polite and friendly. I feel I connected with Judy and she always had my best interests in mind. I feel like she did not have me on a cookie cutter program. Each day I came in Judy would have me do exercises and perform manual therapies based on how my knee was feeling on that day.
I would and already have highly recommended OP to friends and family who are considering physical therapy. Based on the 3 other physical therapists that I have seen in the past, Judy is the most knowledgeable. I feel I learned the most at OP and now have a clear understanding of how to recover going forward."
Paul P. from Bedford
May 22, 2019
"Since beginning my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I have improved. All the tips on how to deal with my problem have been so helpful! My clinician, Judy, goes out of her way to help me deal with my condition. The best part about OP is how the entire staff is so helpful and so caring for your condition. If someone I know was interested in physical therapy I would tell them to go to Orthopaedics Plus for excellent care."

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus for my knee replacement I am now able to walk down stairs, get in and out of a car and perform daily activities without pain or stiffness. More importantly, I can play tennis and pickle ball (and bowl) for the first time in years without any physical restrictions! I can engage in those activities with full mobility and at a high level. Ellen Poveromo is the most knowledgeable and superbly trained clinician I have ever had the opportunity to work with (and I have worked with many). Ellen has successfully guided my wife and I through numerous rehab programs over the years. She consistently gives 100 percent attention to her clients, carefully assessing their status at every appointment and making therapy adjustments when warranted. She provides clear explanations to her patients regarding their ailments and communicates to them in a manner they can easily understand. Ellen carefully observes her clients in the performance of their instructed exercises and is careful to correct bad form. Ellen is not only an exceptional clinician. she is an exceptional person-genuine, patient, supportive and compassionate. My wife and I have referred many, many people to Ellen. Top-Notch. "

"I had left shoulder pain such that I could not sleep at night due to the severity of the pain. I went to Orthopaedics Plus in Bedford and had Colleen Dooley as my Physical Therapist. She performed an assessment and was able to diagnose specifically what was the problem causing the discomfort. Immediately she both designed an exercise program as well as therapeutic treatments that allowed me to sleep at night almost immediately. Eventually I became totally pain free and I look to maintain the exercises on my own to maintain the strength in my shoulder. I would highly recommend Colleen and Orthopaedics Plus to anyone needing Physical Therapy."

"The treatment course at Orthopaedics Plus gave me greater strength and range of motion in my daily activities. More importantly it game me the tools and knowledge to continue my treatment at home on my own. All the staff at OP are wonderful, from the clinicians to the front office.

"Since starting my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I am now able to walk without assistance much better than before. I can take the stairs now and do not feel as much twinging and pain as I did prior to my treatment. At Orthopaedics Plus the entire staff, including the office, seem to really care about you as an individual. They make one feel positive in what can be a negative situation. I would tell someone I know thinking of going to PT to visit Orthopaedics Plus; they care and are knowledgeable."

"My life has gotten so much better since I began treatment at OP. My mobility has increased and my pain has significantly decreased. I think the clinicians are excellent at OP. I worked primarily with Ellen and was helped in on session by Carolyn. I was also assisted by Alex. All the staff are knowledgeable, comprehensive, and thorough. I felt like I was in good hands and confident they would help me and they did. I do recommend Ellen and OP to many people. I tell them Ellen is incredibly knowledgeable and has helped me with my body. I often suggest that PT can be helpful when other therapies have not worked."

"My life has been changed by Orthopaedics Plus. I have been there twice. Once for treatment of a leg issue and then for a neck injury I sustained in a car accident. The treatment I received has enabled me to start walking and sleeping again pain free. I have worked with Justin and find Justin and the all the clinicians immensely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

"Orthopaedics Plus far exceeded my expectations! When my doctor recommended physical therapy for an ongoing knee issue I was reluctant to take her advice as I did not have a great experience in the past with a different facility. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the service at Orthopaedics Plus! The therapists, the staff, the equipment, the location, the individual attention from the PT made the 5 weeks of therapy enjoyable. Most importantly, I finished my sessions and walked out pain free, and just in time for my Spring walking routine! I don't wish injury on anyone but should you ever need physical therapy then I highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus! "

"Since coming to Orthopaedics Plus I feel so much more confident walking around doing the activities I once enjoyed now that my legs and foot feels more stable.My strength overall has increased dramatically since I started at Orthopaedics Plus. I like their focus on making their clients feel heard and focused on at each appointment. I really appreciated them pushing and encouraging me each time to try each exercise and when I struggled to just do my best and that it would get easier the more I did it. This is an excellent PT place to go to if you want to see success with any injury through individual care and clinician focus on your needs at each step of your recovery."

"My experience at Orthopaedics Plus was totally amazing! Not only is their new facility extremely spacious but everyone starting with the front desk are so helpful and courteous. A special thank you to my therapist Todd who went above and beyond to not only strengthen my ankles and feet, but helped me research better shoe options for people with severely over-pronating feet. For the first time in years my balance has improved dramatically and I can actually walk and stand without being in pain!"

"I've been working at Orthopaedics Plus with Carolyn Harper for the past three months. When I started my left leg was very stiff and had localized pain on the inside of the leg. Carolyn manipulated my leg at every session after I warmed up on the bike. It slowly gave me the motion I needed to function as close to normal as I could get. Carolyn encouraged me every step of the way as she kept a close eye on my progress and form during our sessions. I can now walk down the stairs straight, in a forward motion, instead of sideways. Carolyn taught me how to enter and exit my Jeep without putting undue pressure on my leg and I've been walking 40 minutes outside three times a week pain free. Carolyn is wonderful to work with and very informed. She watched my moves at every session to be sure my form was correct. I really appreciate all that she did for me to get me where I am today. Monique and Alex were also very attentive when starting me on the bike or setting me up on the machines. I would recommend anyone in need of therapy to see Carolyn at Orthopaedics Plus if they want to get the most out of their time in therapy."

"Orthopaedics Plus was super helpful in recovering from my ankle injury. Colleen never rushed recovery but still made sure that I made continuous improvements, and helped me get back to full participation in sports and other activities. She also chose specific exercises that helped me in the areas I needed most to get back to throwing shot put and discus. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who needs to recover from an injury or surgery."

Before therapy I was unable to do lots of things I enjoyed and now life is better and I am able to get through the day comfortably. The staff her is wonderful. They are pleasant and very knowledgeable. Barbara is the best!!! Barbara has encouraged me with all the exercises and I appreciate all her help and her advice. I owe all of my results and feeling good to her. Since I started here I talk about how good OP is and always tell them if they have a problem to call Orthopaedics Plus."

"At my shoulder surgery I was told to expect painful physical therapy, and a year to full recovery. When I started at Orthopaedics Plus, I was depressed at the long process and pain of PT. Ellen pointed out the positive steps in range of motion since surgery, and explained why recovery takes a long time. She then patiently answered my many questions about "why" and noted my progress from week to week. Over a few months I recovered full mobility and most of my strength. The rest is up to me continuing the exercises she provided. Ellen and the team at OP explained the reasons for each exercise and directed me to be sure I was doing them most effectively. She remained sensitive to my concerns and any pain before, during, or following each PT session. The desk were most understanding in accommodating my scheduling needs. I suggest you frankly explain your needs and limitations. Discuss your expectations and ask questions until you and your clinicians agree on the plan at PT and homework. Agree on the planned frequency and duration of PT, subject to progress made."

"My life has changed since coming to Orthopaedics Plus because I have a lot less pain and I also have more awareness of positions that contributed to my neck pain. I was taught cues to remind me to practice healthy behavior patterns to carry that with me when I leave here. What I liked best about Orthopaedics Plus is they simply care! I would tell someone looking to come to OP for physical therapy it is a place that encourages healing and common sense suggestions that are doable in your everyday life."
Deborah K. from Beverly

"Thanks to Orthopaedics Plus I am returning to my exercise and my regular activities without pain in my left knee. What I like best about working with the clinicians is the knowledge and expertise. The staff always explain the reasoning behind the exercises or techniques, and it really helps put your mind at ease after having major surgery. The staff is also good about pushing you to do more when you are ready. Go to Orthopaedics Plus they are the best and I wouldn't go anywhere else."

OP has helped me so much and I am able to now do pretty much everything I want to do. The best decision I have made was to start coming to physical therapy, I feel like a new person.

"I had a great experience at Orthopaedics Plus recovering from shoulder surgery. I received great care, and Colleen took the time to explain not only the how, but the why, for a better understanding of goal/objective of exercise. There was a lot of focus on how exercises are being done to ensue proper form which was visible for every patients of Colleen and other therapists during my visits."

"I came to Orthopaedics Plus 5 days after a partial meniscectomy on my lateral meniscus. Having never had any kind of surgery before, I wanted someone to be very explicit with me in terms of how I should be moving right after surgery. Todd Swango was a great match for me. He progressed me safely through my rehab and was very creative about small progressions to help me work through all ranges of motion to build strength and avoid pain. It was great to see quick progress and gain some confidence in the healing process. When I finished physical therapy, I was fully ready to begin a strength training program to continue my healing."

"I came to Orthopaedics Plus a couple of months into my physical therapy journey after suffering from a tibial plateau fracture. I was struggling to make the gains I wanted and encouraged by many friends (who were prior Orthopaedics Plus clients) to give them a try. I set up an evaluation with Carolyn Harper to get her assessment of my progress and get a feel for a different provider. From day one Carolyn attentively listened to my goals, concerns and formulated a strategy that would align with both of those. One of the biggest differences Carolyn brings to the table, is she formulates her approach for each individual; never trying to fit me into a textbook approach. She is constantly challenging the status quo and adjusting to her clients’ needs. Healing from an injury can be extremely frustrating at times, so to work with a team of professionals that resonate a palpable passion for what they do makes all the world of a difference. In my experience this sets Orthopaedics Plus and Carolyn Harper a part from the rest. I was always taught that knowledge is power and while working with Carolyn, she is able to adapt highly medical and scientific explanations to a wide variety of audiences helping them understand the “why” and establishing a foundation of trust with her clients. She maintains a contagiously fun environment and is able to delivers results. I am extremely thankful for the professionalism and expertise I was met with at Orthopaedics Plus and for Carolyn Harper changing the trajectory of my physical therapy journey! "

"Al and the staff at Orthopaedics Plus were tremendous in strengthening my knee to get me ready for my upcoming season. After suffering a tear and putting off any rehab, I came into Orthopaedics Plus through a referral and ended up being the best decision for my recovery. From day 1, he had a plan in place for me and the improvements week to week certainly showed. The cleanliness of the facility and the overall structure of the floor impressed me. It's a first class PT program with all the right equipment and training you need, with hands-on therapy at all times. Keep up the good work!"

"I have nothing but high praise for the treatment I have received at Orthopaedics Plus. My mobility has significantly improved since starting PT last October. Judy is simply THE best. I requested her as a therapist because several years ago she successfully treated me for a torn tendon in my leg. After I had finished PT, I was able to prevent having surgery, although two doctors had recommended it. My current situation is similar in that doctors are recommending a second back surgery. I feel like I am making a great deal of progress and, as before, will be able to avoid surgery."

"The treatments at Orthopaedics Plus, including utilizing recommended exercises, have led to substantial improvements in the quality of my life: greater ease of movement, far less pain, etc. The staff at OP are welcoming and extremely helpful. The clinicians are highly professional - excellent at diagnosis, pinpointing areas that need help, and extremely thoughtful & encouraging. I take everything they say quite seriously. Not only have I recommended Orthopaedics Plus to a number of people, but I have been thanked by those patients for having made the recommendations. "

"I can’t say enough about Orthopaedics Plus! The moment you walk in the door you are greeted at the front desk by a professional, caring and kind staff. Scott, Jennifer and Monique go above and beyond to help you schedule appointments. All of the physical therapists are extremely positive and passionate, resulting in an atmosphere that is actually fun.
I first saw Ellen Poveromo many years ago when I ruptured a disc in my lower back and was in extreme pain. After working with Ellen for a few months, my lower back has remained pain free for years and I was able to return to cycling, gardening and pottery – all hobbies that, if not done properly, can negatively affect your spine. Ellen not only helped me while I was in treatment, but also gave me the strategies that I needed to make life style changes to continue living pain free. She actually helped me turn working on a pottery wheel into an exercise. She is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate, and makes the treatment time pass quickly because she is so much fun to chat with. Ellen is the best!
In recent years I started having neck and shoulder issues and the obvious choice was to go back to Orthopedics Plus. I saw Rob Heron for treatment last spring for my bicep tendon issue and went from constant pain to none in a few months. Rob is also an excellent PT. While working on my pre-treatment exercises before my appointments with Rob, I was always impressed by his patience and how well he worked with children.
Lastly, this past fall, I started working again with Ellen on four bulging discs and arthritis in my cervical and thoracic spine. I was in quite a bit of pain and had little flexibility in my neck. This issue was complicated and like working on a puzzle, Ellen broke down my overall issue piece by piece until I had my flexibility back and was pain free. While in treatment, I was also impressed by how well the PTs collaborate and share their expertise. Carolyn Harper is an absolute champion of a particular manipulation of the spine and Ellen recommended that I see her a few times as part of my treatment. She was able to get the “pop” needed to help me move forward! With the help of Rob and Ellen, I am also following up my treatment with personal training next door at Spectrum Fitness with Kacey, a personal trainer whose past experience working at Orthopaedics Plus is such an asset. She communicates with the physical therapists next door to ensure that my workouts support my physical issues. I highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus, Spectrum Fitness and physical therapy in general. I know that my quality of life is so much better because of their efforts. "

"Prior to my first hip surgery, a friend recommended Al as “the only” PT I should consider seeing to help me recover from surgery and get back to my active lifestyle as soon as possible . I took his advice and I am certainly glad that I did! I’ve returned to Orthopaedics Plus several times over the years following other hip surgeries and a shoulder injury. Al has always provided me with effective treatment along with thoughtful and detailed exercise routines to follow. I recently went back to see Al for treatment on my other hip. As always, my experience was great! An added bonus was the new location in Bedford...the building is beautiful and more spacious. There is also now a fitness service connected to the new office, Spectrum Fitness Consulting, to help clients transition from treatment to an effective exercise program. I hope I don’t need to go back too soon, but I know that when the time comes, I’ll be back at Orthopaedics Plus for more first class treatment! "

"I have been to OrthoPlus for three injuries over the last 20 years, and each treatment has fixed my issue completely. For example, the first was a knee that I could not walk on; it hasn't given me the same trouble since. I have recommended the clinic to others who have appreciated the services that OP offers.
This time, I had been ignoring an aching hip for over six months when I finally went in to meet Judy. She diagnosed the hip pain as a problem with my back, triggered by a weak core. Judy taught me - for the first time in my 65 years - the right way to strengthen my abs. She also worked on other areas of weakness that were effecting my hip, not just the hip, but my quads and balance as well.
In her hands-on therapy (mostly deep tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and traction), Judy focused on my responses, adjusting her work to achieve the best results. I continue to do the exercises she gave me at home, and she regularly checked that i was doing them right, fine-tuning my form to ensure that I got the full benefits. She repeatedly confirmed progress using a number of teats, each of which narrowed down issues I faced.
I think I improved so quickly because Judy encouraged me to slow down, to listen to the pain instead of fighting through it, and to take care of my entire body.
As important, were Judy's cheerfulness and patience. She always took time to explain and reassure me, even when I was the most discouraged. Her spirit matched the cheerfulness of the entire practice; the atmosphere is bright and friendly, and all the patients and therapists know and support each other.
I wholeheartedly recommend Orthopaedics Plus for both diagnosis and treatment to anyone who is dealing with pain.

I worked with Justin who has been very helpful. The rest of the staff are as well, and have been throughout my treatment. They are all very professional. On a scale of 1-10 I would give them a 10!

Her expertise and experience gave me confidence I was in the right place with the right therapist. She not only used many years of experience to help me but also had amazing personality to help my hourly sessions tolerable and enjoyable. I left always feeling better with hope. She’s a gem to! I have recommended her and Orthopaedics Plus to some friends as well! "

It's always a pleasure to come to Orthopaedics Plus. The environment is welcoming, and everyone here is encouraging and goes the extra mile in helping us achieve a good outcome. I have already encouraged many people to at least get and evaluation here. As a patient you need to be willing to put the time and effort into coming to PT so that you too can have better mobility and live a pain free life."

"This was my first physical therapy experience so I have nothing to compare it to. I was very uncomfortable and did not know what to expect. Al immediately made me feel at ease. He also diagnosed my problem in less than one minute. This is something that three medical professional and an x-ray could not pin point. My knee cap was off to the side so it was not sitting in the correct spot. He then started me off slowly. He gave me one stretch and one exercise to do for homework. Over the course of 11 visits, he added special high tech medical tape and more stretches and exercises. The pain and discomfort disappeared. I was also able to talk to him by using the new app on my phone. This helped me stay on target and be honest with my home routine. He was very responsive and answered my concerns even on the weekend. But, my greatest compliment was how well I witnessed Al put all of his clients at ease. He would see clients of every walk of life; from every age and every activity level. One customer used a walker, another had had hip replacement, one was a teacher like me and had to rush back to school. He was always positive, flexible and easy going. I felt like part of a family and will miss going. I happily give my highest recommendation!"

"I began my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus on Nov. 1st. At first I was skeptical about how much progress I would make. The pain on my right hip was discouraging me from physical activity, such as walking. I left Feb. 1st with improved range of motion and a strategy to manage my hip arthritis using exercises that have clear explanations and visual demonstrations to review when necessary.
I worked with Todd as my therapist and found him to not only be an extremely competent clinician, but also a patient, warm human being who engages each patient in a personal and caring way. The ancillary staff: Ignazio was cordial and helpful. The secretaries were friendly and pleasant. I also appreciated the camaraderie among therapists and the harmonious way they trust each other.
I was recommended to this practice by my sister who was also a patient of Todd's. If someone I knew was thinking about physical therapy I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus to them for the reasons I've cited above. Orthopaedics Plus is a humane, caring and competent organization that helps heal people physically but also creates a warm, caring environment.

"This was my 1st time with physical therapy and it was a great, positive experience right from day one! I worked with Colleen, who was absolutely fantastic. Everyone at Orthopaedics Plus is encouraging and upbeat with the patients, they carefully evaluate you and create a therapy plan best suited to you and your needs. What I appreciated most was everyone's sense of humor - physical therapy can sometimes be uncomfortable and tiring, so having your physical therapist crack a joke and make you smile really helped. Thank you to Colleen and the team for fixing my shoulders and making each therapy session worthwhile and fun! I highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus, their new facility in Bedford is beautiful and easy to find. If I ever need physical therapy again in the future, this is my #1 choice."

"My life has changed in a tremendous way since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. I couldn't take a step with out pain and now, I don't even think about pain when walking now. I like working with the clinicians at OP because of their expertise, and their willingness to listen to issues that come up. The staff is also personable, easy going and always makes me comfortable. I would tell someone who is thinking about coming to OP to DO IT!!! The staff couldn't be better, second to none!!! "

"I feel a lot more comfortable in my day to day life after my treatment here at Orthopaedics Plus. I can actually function normally in most if not all of my daily interactions without anyone noticing that there is anything wrong with my neck. The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful. The staff is willing to do whatever it takes to help me, even if I had questions about other issues that came up during my treatment. The staff is always smiling and have a positive attitude. I would tell someone who is thinking of going to Orthopaedics Plus for PT that they would be excited to go to every appointment, and that they would receive excellent care."

"Since I was involved in a car accident I have regained my strength and mobility back. I have a more positive outlook about my ability post-accident! Everyone here at Orthopaedics Plus is extremely knowledgeable but more importantly listen to the needs of their patients. I always felt like they had my best interest in mind and always with realistic outcomes. I would recommend the PT's here at Orthopaedics Plus for treatment!"

"The quality of my life has improved tremendously since starting physical therapy at Orthopaedics Plus. I had constant low back pain for 6 months which effected my sleep and day to day activities. After my treatments, I am stronger and my overall pain has subsided.
From the moment I entered the office, the receptionists, therapists and aides, made me feel welcomed and supported. The receptionists were very accommodating to fit my appointments into my busy schedule. The therapists and aides worked together to ensure that my time and energy was utilized efficiently with the ultimate goal to make me feel better and stronger. The therapists are patient and encouraging. I was instructed on proper techniques and given home care instructions to continue my progress once therapy ended.
I am the head athletic trainer for Burlington High School and I constantly recommend Orthopaedics Plus to my student athletes and staff members. The quality of care is second to none. Every therapist is highly trained and personable. Orthopaedics Plus has flexible hours and is conveniently located on the Middlesex Turnpike. Choosing Orthopaedics Plus for PT is the best decision you can make in your recovery!"

"I actually started Othro Plus after hip replacement in their Burlington location, before expansion to Bedford. My PT was Colleen, and I could not have hoped for a more caring, consummate professional. She took me through both hip replacements in five months, and I was (rapidly!) fully mobile. I am in the gym now, and am able to augment my activity regimen at home with little equipment due to her expertise at putting low-impact, high-benefit exercises--with or without bands--to use at home at any time.
Ortho Plus is a highly personalized, scientifically based program that is an important adjunct to any physical recovery program. The assistants and interns--in my case, Alex and Iggy--are always ready to help. There is never an unsupervised moment in a client's PT hour, due to team approach in every aspect of operations.
I highly recommend this facility for all physical, PT, and rehabilitative needs.

"Since I've had treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my abs have flattened making me generally feel better about my body. Everyone here is very nice. They worked with me to come up with the best routine for my busy schedule so that I could really focus on my Physical Therapy. I would definitely recommend Orthopaedics Plus and let everyone know how much I've benefited :-). "

"I am a senior orthotist with Boston O&P in the Children's Hospital Waltham location. I have referred many families and patients to Amy Sbihli from Orthopaedics Plus. My main focus at Children's Hospital is the management of idiopathic scoliosis. I have seen very positive results from Schroth therapy and the comments that we receive about Amy's knowledge and professionalism are a continued reason that we recommend her and her staff for Schroth therapy.
I really appreciate the fact that Amy is able to work with all of my patients and that she has no bias if they are wearing Boston Brace 3D style scoliosis brace or a competitors brace. Our patient population can be very challenging at times and I feel very confident when families are prescribed Schroth therapy that they will be in very good hands with Amy at Orthopaedics Plus."

"I’ve been a patient of Orthopaedics Plus since 2012. My first experience with them was for an injury to my right shoulder from cycling. I worked with Todd, who very quickly figured out what worked (and didn’t) with my shoulder and we worked together through the following weeks until my shoulder was stronger and felt much better. Todd was really great. Fast forward to 2014 and I injured the other shoulder. I worked with Todd again and it was really nice to be welcomed back (even though I know that in the PT world, seeing patients for new visits means something new needs help and we are coming to you in worse shape than you saw us last). Todd again figured out how to address my other shoulder and within a few weeks it was feeling much better.
I managed to keep myself in one piece until late 2017, when I injured my lower back cycling. As soon as I was mobile enough, I reached out to OP for help. This time, I worked with Judy, who has been fantastic. This has been a longer recovery but the recovery plan has really helped my back. Everyone at OP has been excellent - I’ve always appreciated the personal attention, everyone is always happy (really amazing and super important I think when working with those of us struggling to get through injury recovery), and the PT services I’ve received have been essential to keeping me able to do what I love outside: mountain biking.
Thank you Todd, and thank you Judy, for all your patience and hard work with me. Thank you Orthopaedics Plus for being a great physical therapy resource for me!"

"My life is back to normal since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, and I feel armed with new techniques to keep it that way! Carolyn listened very closely and knew exactly how to remedy any physical problems, however subtle they may have been. She gave me great preventative information for the future. I am a musician and brought my instruments to the clinic to work with posture and balance. She analyzed the causes of physical problems caused by long term posture "mistakes" and instrument weight - Great work! It is definitely worth the time and effort to see Orthopaedics Plus for physical therapy. The long term awareness is very valuable as well!"

"My life and improved dramatically since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. I can now walk up stairs without pain; I can stand for longer periods of time; I can sleep at night without waking up from pain in my hip; I have a better day doing my job and normal activities without pain. The staff at OP are amazing, especially Ellen. She was terrific! Her easy going manners, explanation of what my problems were and how to work on each area of my hip and back were refreshing happenings. I have gone to three different physical therapy providers. The others never physically worked on my problems. They just gave me incorrect exercises to do which created only more discomfort and a road to getting worse! I traveled 1 hour each way just to see Ellen and OP!! The rest of the staff listened to my questions and were very friendly and encouraging! Orthopaedics Plus is the best physical therapy experience you could hope for!"

"Orthopedics Plus in Beverly was amazing. The staff is great and 100% professional. After my knee replacement I needed extensive rehab and worked with Barbara to get back into shape and I cannot say enough good things about her and the rest of the staff. If I ever need rehab again I will definitely return to Orthopedics Plus. "

"I had a bad fall down a flight of stairs several years ago, injuring my neck, and from that point had suffered from debilitating migraines. When the migraine would start, I would end up in bed for a full day. For the balance of that week I would have residual effects comparable to being hung over. I was going for massages twice a month to try and keep up with it. I am very active and my passion is ballroom dancing. That suffered. I had to give it up. Nothing was helping...until my boss recommended I go see Mike at Spectrum Fitness. I figured what could it hurt but didn't have any high hopes. Mike and his staff worked with me twice a week over 2 months and I can say I have been migraine free for 4 months. What a blessing! Thank you all!

"I’ve just completed a lengthy 6 month recovery with Justin Pezick for several leg fractures, ACL replacement and MCL tear. I would summarize my experience with Justin as the best therapist I’ve ever used. Keep in mind that you have to be committed to the recovery process too. Justin’s knowledge of the human anatomy and his personal approach to each patient is quite unique. He knows how and when to push you as well as recognizing when each individual approaches their limits. I’ve seen his approach work well with other patients during these 6 months that ran across others that range from athletes to couch potatoes and others somewhere in between. My thanks to Justin for bringing me back to my normal life style."

"After treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, everyday leg movement and balances feel 100% better and I have no back pain! The staff give great encouragement and know just how much to push you. They take the time to explain each exercise and what it help to strengthen for a particular area. I would tell anyone thinking about physical therapy to GO to Orthopaedics Plus! (And do your exercises at home like they tell you!)"

The staff and clinicians at Orthopaedics Plus are extremely knowledgeable, pleasant, and professional. I have been treated with respect, promptly, and pleasantly. I would tell everyone thinking about PT that they should go to Orthopaedics Plus because they would get 5 start treatment!"

" I just want to thank Justin and Orthopaedics Plus for everything they have done for me. I really thought that my shoulder was going to be a major problem for my whole life, and it was causing me tons of stress, but Justin helping me fix it has allowed me to enjoy life so much more, and do things I really thought I was not going to be able to do again, like play tennis, and just throw a football around with my friends. I've also made a lot of progress with my back issues and will definitely still be doing the exercises and stretches. Thanks so much!"

"My time with Carolyn was extremely beneficial. I broke my back in the winter, and after wearing a brace for four months, I went to her for help to restrengthen my back, core, and glute muscles. Carolyn showed me many useful exercises, many of which I could do at home on my own. After going to her for a few months, I feel much stronger and confident that I now have the tools necessary to prevent further damage in the future. I am very thankful for Orthopaedics Plus."

"After undergoing a labrum repair surgery I spent 12 weeks working with Carolyn to rehabilitate my shoulder. During my initial visits Carolyn was very successful at reducing the pain in my shoulder resulting from surgery. As my therapy progressed she introduced new exercises and movements that greatly improved my shoulder strength and mobility. During my sessions Carolyn would always take the time to explain the muscles I was using in each exercise and made sure that my form was correct when doing them. She was very attentive to my level of discomfort and helped me move through therapy at my own pace. Carolyns positive and pleasant attitude made my sessions very enjoyable. After these 12 weeks of therapy my shoulder feels immensely stronger and healthier. "

"My life has changed so much since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. By understanding the reason for my constant pain, I was able to make the steps necessary to correct it. It has made such a difference. I am able to do so much more physically, and it has given me the motivation to continue to lead a healthier lifestyle. Everyone at OP is amazing! So friendly and outgoing. Ellen and Chris were wonderful. They are really helpful and professional, but personable too. Although they were busy, they really took the time to understand what I was going through to help me correct it. I would absolutely recommend OP to anyone looking for a professional, compassionate, friendly office that will provide the treatment they need. "
