"I have had a nagging hamstring injury that was not getting better. Having went to Al Visnick years ago I sought him out. I'm happy to say Al is still the best. His knowledge and personality is second to none. I'm back running without pain thanks to Al!!"

"I'm a scientist in my seventies and based on high recommendations from my sister-in-law (a nurse) I went to Dr. Stare with bone on bone knees and a shot left shoulder. Dr. Stare performed a detailed diagnosis of my knee and shoulder issues and oversaw my implementation of exercises that he designed specifically for my problems. After following Dr. Stares directions for months subsequent to my final appointment, I thought it was time for a review. To this day I am significantly impressed with Dr. Stare's understanding of anatomy and his ability to diagnose problems and design exercise programs to ameliorate these problems. His ability to detect subtleties that are significant to recovery is remarkable. My conditions are significantly improved and I have delayed my knee replacement operations. When my Inevitable knee operations do occur, Dr. Stare is the only person I'd consider for my recovery. Dr. Stare has also trained his staff well, they are very capable and assisted me through my recovery. "

"This was my first time at Orthopaedics Plus, but not my first-ever PT. From experience, I know that a big part of success is how comfortable you are with your therapist and support staff. As my therapist, Cherie was awesome, with tremendous knowledge and an easygoing personality. Ignazio, as the assistant, was always helpful and pleasant. I now know where I will go if I need PT again!"

"Highly recommend Orthopaedics plus. I worked directly with Todd but during the course of my treatment I got to observe other patients working with other therapists and like Todd everyone was exceptionally knowledgeable, personable, prepared and excellent at asking questions and really listening to their clients. The Bedford facility is brand new and unlike other facilities I have been to recently, this one is spacious, clean and well equipped without lots of extra ‘stuff’ lying about. Unfortunately, with my history of sports related injuries, I will be hurt again (probably sooner than later), and will return to orthopaedics plus and Todd without hesitation!"

"Cherie has an advanced knowledge of anatomy and quickly found the best approach to treating my injury. She expresses herself clearly, and has a warm and friendly manner. With great appreciation she has my highest recommendation."

"My life has improved a great deal since starting PT. I have a great deal more mobility than I did at the start. I have a plan to continue to make improvements, so I feel positive about continuing to improve. What I like most about the staff is how positive and professional everyone is. Carolyn did a great job, leading me step by step thru the exercises, until I achieved a goal I thought was impossible...a push-up!! I would strongly recommend Orthopaedics Plus! "

"I went to Orthopaedics Plus after scheduling a reverse shoulder operation. This was on the basis that I might be able to heal sufficiently and save the shoulder, while building strength and maintaining the use of my right arm and shoulder. Rehab is extremely slow in regards of healing but today, only me therapist and myself can tell that I have a damaged shoulder. As far as shoulder strength is concerned, I have gone from a completely un-usable arm and shoulder, to one that I can almost operate normally. I would say that I have regained about 10% of my strength, but that has been a tremendous amount when starting from zero. The key to success is to follow the PT's exercises as directed. In the begininning, I tried to go a little fast only to suffer a small setback. Now, I'm doing what I was told and exercise some 4-6 days per week. What's best about working with the staff at Orthopaedics Plus is that they are so professional but fun, at the same time! The whole staff watches to make sure that one is exercising with the proper form. I have found this to be extremely important to success. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Stare and Barbara Simmons, and the entire staff at Orthopaedics Plus "

"I have experienced an improvement in the range of motion after completing PT with Orthopaedics Plus. I am able to perform tasks that I was unable to do when I first came in! Todd has been great to work with, as always."

"I had the pleasure of working with Carolyn Harper, DPT this past year for several months. I had two ortho issues that she treated me for both the right knee and the left hip. She was very knowledgeable about what approach we needed to take in order for therapy to work. Her knowledge of the anatomy was very impressive and it helped me understand what was going wrong with my joints. Her exercises were easy to understand and follow up at home. She gave me some pivotal advice about correct posture sitting in the drivers seat of a car and recommended a car cushion that has been a lifesaver for me! She was very patient and had such a warm demeanor. She truly loves her job of helping patients and that is obvious the first time you met her. I appreciated her flexibility too as being a working professional it was sometimes a struggle with work and time allotted for a PT session. I would highly recommended Carolyn Harper to help you get back to your stronger self. Thank you Carolyn!! "

"Since starting my sessions with Carolyn about six weeks ago I have gone from not being able to move my left ankle or walk without severe pain to feeling confident walking short distances without pain and having full range of motion in that foot. The clinicians are so supportive and Carolyn always made sure I felt informed about my treatment plan and why my homework was so important to my goals. This is one of the best Physical Therapy organizations on the North Shore. "

"Since beginning my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus my back is now so strong, I am able to do all the things I want to do. Everyone at OP is so friendly and engaged. They all know you and what you are doing and help each other. For anyone thinking about physical therapy I would tell them to get an appointment as quick as you can! Do the exercises they give you and you will feel better!"

"The Orthopaedics Plus team helped me get strength and mobility back in my hip. My therapist Colleen is great - very knowledgeable and friendly! Everyone in the office is upbeat and inviting. I highly recommend going here."

"By finishing PT at Orthopaedics Plus, I can play sports better and now have more fun while playing. The clinicians and the rest of the staff are very attentive to detail to make sure my form is right. I would tell someone thinking about coming in for physical therapy that this place is extremely helpful and would 10/10 recommend them!"

"Since my treatment at OP I have learned new ways to strengthen muscles and carry myself and movements as to not re-trigger shoulder issues. The staff at OP is patient and down to earth. Yes go here for PT they will help!!!"
Dec 11, 2019
"Since coming to Orthopaedics Plus I am able to walk and sit without pain. The exercises I've been taught have allowed me to do that. Everyone at OP is very pleasant and helpful especially Alyssa! I would highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus!!!!"
Dec 11, 2019
"I was referred to PT by my doctor for severe, persistent knee pain. I have a physically demanding job, and the pain was debilitating. Colleen designed a treatment program for me that focused first on mitigating the pain, and then on building strength to stabilize my joints and prevent future injury. She has an evidence-based, practical approach that took into account that I still had to do my job while I was recovering. The facilities are neat and clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. I can confidently recommend Colleen and the whole team here at Orthopaedics Plus - I hope I'm not injured again, but if I am, I know I'll be in good hands!"

"I have had two therapists, Todd Swango and Al Visnick. Both are excellent. I am always impressed at the depth of their knowledge, their insight into what is wrong and their creative approach in getting me back on track, with humor, patience and sensitivity. All the staff in the office has been terrific: working with my difficult schedule, helpful in every aspect. Thank you to everyone!!!"
Dec 02, 2019
"Yes my life has changed since starting at OP. I am much improved and know what I need to do on my own to continue my well being. Each staff member is professional and gracious, respectful of patients and each other. I would highly recommend without reservation Orthopaedics Plus."
Dec 02, 2019
"My life has changed since starting at OP is I feel like myself again. I was in a lot of pain and severly limited in ways that affected my work, my daily activities and my family. Now I feel like my old self again. Everybody at OP was great. People all around seem engaged in their work and like they really care. All the staff seemed to really like their work, and I think that makes a difference because everyone seems positive and always engaging. Don't hesitate to see them for PT this place is great!"
Dec 02, 2019
"My life has changed since I started at Orthopaedics plus that I now realize my limitations. After working with Alyssa I now have a daily routine of exercises and stretching. I like that the clinicians at OP listen to what I tell them I am feeling and target my therapy on trouble areas. I would say to someone seeking PT at Orthopaedics Plus don't think about it just DO IT!"
Dec 02, 2019
"Todd Swango has helped me over the last 15 years. He has saved me from intense pain. This guy really knows what he is doing. I've been in severe pain many times, and every time I go to Todd, he makes me feel a lot better, right off the bat! and not just for my Back, but my Hips, Legs, Arm, etc. He's great at undoing great pain that other lousy Physical Therapist have caused, not to mention physical harm I caused myself. Thank You Todd. I have so much fun coming here. I've never laughed so hard while feeling better. Thank You Orthopaedics Plus and especially Todd. Your Awesome !!! Thanks for the laughs and pain relief at the same time. and I'll miss the singing! From your favorite Fan Brenda F"

"I'm so glad I discovered this little gem of a physical therapy office. When I first walked in 3 months ago I could barely walk and was crying from pain due to herniated disk. I had my lows and highs, but Todd was patient, knowledgeable and understood just the right amount of exercise I needed every single visit, He took the time to explain and repeat the exercises for me and how they help me get stronger and avoid future injuries. The office feels very personal and has this warm feeling to it when you walk in. When I felt like not coming in for a session I always remembered how good it feels when I walk out. Todd and his staff really made a difference to my physical well being."

"I see Amy for my scoliosis. I do the small group and it’s so helpful! You really do get individualized attention, usually only 3-4 people. I’m about halfway through with my visits, and feel I’m doing better. Amy’s smart, hands on, and is a great communicator/teacher. An added bonus is I feel great when I leave, like I had body work! Definitely recommend this!"
Nov 26, 2019
"After therapy at OP I feel I have improved in dealing with my spinal issue. The exercises have improved my ability to continue to stretch my lower back and spine. My therapist Alyssa was excellent she guided me through various exercises to stretch my mussels and I feel that this have improved my ability to counter my tightness in my spine. I would also note that the other staff were courteous and attentive to me. I note here they all called me by my name Joe. I would say if you were seeking PT that the personnel at OP were professional and the facility had all the equipment necessary to service my needs."
Nov 25, 2019
"I am feeling 100 percent better since my treatment at OP. Carolyn Harper was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. This is a great place to receive physical therapy."

"When I first came to Barbara, I had broken my hip and was still in a great deal of pain. I was unable to walk correctly or do many very simple household chores, let alone all the things I used to be able to do when active. I had tried several other PT places and none had really helped. I had scar tissue beneath the skin that was very painful. She worked out the scar tissue, taught me exercises and worked with me exercises and worked with me to get me literally back on my feet. Because of Barbara, I have been able to take care of my young grandchildren. I have also been able to go on many major trips...South Africa, the American Southwest, Easter Island, Spain, Etc. Etc. which entailed long plane rides and much walking while there. She used her vast knowledge of physiology to find ways to strengthen the areas of my back, hip and leg that were damaged. I am stronger than I have been in a long time. I have had recurrences and other physical issue with my shoulder, arm, foot and other leg. Each time something "fell apart", I returned to her and she helped me work my way back to health. She has given me a chance to live my life in a meaningful way. I will forever be grateful to her for all she has done to help me. I like Barbara and all the patience and care and kindness she gives her clients as well as her expertise. I would tell anyone seeking physical therapy to ask for Barbara to be their physical therapist. She is intelligent, caring and an expert at figuring out what is bothering a client. She does not just use the standard formulas."

"Being outside and physically active is an important part of who I am. As I get older (I'm in my 70s), it's been very, very helpful to have the help of Ellen and the crew at Orthopedics Plus. The most recent problem was a stiffening in my right knee and the development of significant pain in and around the knee as I walked. My normal routine is something like 15 to 20 miles a week (mostly with my dog); it felt like the developing pain might make it impossible for me to continue. Ellen first diagnosed exactly what the problem was (one key muscle was weak and very, very tight) and then developed a set of exercises to strengthen and stretch this muscle and others in the leg. I worked these new exercises into my weekly routine; when I came in for therapy Ellen and her team watched me do them and made some very important suggestions as to how I could make sure that the exercises were in fact strengthening where it was necessary. It took awhile, but after about 3 or 4 weeks the pain began to diminish, and now (after two months) it's all gone! I couldn't be more pleased with how it went. The disappearance of the pain is wonderful, of course, but making it possible for me to continue my walking is also about preserving my overall strength, and keeping me both mentally alert and cheerful!"
Nov 25, 2019
"I couldn't say more positive things for the therapy I received from Al at Orthopaedics Plus. He was patient, informative, caring, and very thorough in diagnosing my symptoms, providing therapy and joint work, and giving me a number of exercises to do at home to continue the work. He and the rest of the staff at Orthropaedics Plus, are real pros and I couldn't be happier!!"
Nov 23, 2019
"I came into Orthopaedics Plus with no idea how to improve the issues I was having with my back. I was at the gym guessing what would work for it, and I wasn't seeing any improvement. They taught me basic exercises to improve my core and since then I have been pain free, and I have a whole regiment of exercises to take with me so I can stay pain free. I'm very grateful for their help. "
Nov 22, 2019
"Since starting at OP my pain level has diminished tremendously, I am able to do everyday tasks that I was unable to do prior to therapy. Alyssa was amazing. I have been to physical therapy at other locations and was hesitant to try therapy again because the places were so depressing. Orthopaedics Plus was such a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere at OP was upbeat,friendly, professional and very goal oriented. I loved the synergy among the staff and clients. Don't hesitate and call today for therapy at OP!"
Nov 21, 2019
"I came into Orthopaedics plus with chronic knee pain and an absolute inability to run any significant distance. All I hoped for was to reduce the pain. In working with Carolyn, she diagnosed my problem and slowly built up my exercises which not only relieved the pain but actually got me running again. I recently completed my first 5K run in almost 8 years and at my fastest time ever! Carolyn set me on a path to success! Carolyn and the rest of the staff at OP are wonderful to work with. They are very kind and encouraging and very knowledgeable. I felt confident in working with Carolyn. I had recommendations from several friends who said it would be a great experience working at OP. I agree and would not hesitate to recommend OP to friends with an injury or issue."
Nov 21, 2019
"Since starting treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I am able to do exercises that I was not able to do when I started. I can now also sleep without pain and do laundry without pain too! Everyone at Orthopaedics Plus is very knowledgeable and they are really care about the patients. I have recommended people in the past and tell them that everyone is very knowledgeable and treat every patient individually and they truly care about the well being and quality of life for all the patients and they do a great job rehabbing people."
Nov 21, 2019
"I would highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus. I had an annoying issue that the helped me resolve. They are knowledgeable and precise on the diagnosis. They helped me to resolve my issue in a timely manner. "
Nov 18, 2019
"After having my third knee surgery, I felt super restricted and lacked the confidence in what I could do. After therapy at Orthopaedics Plus, I felt like I became mentally and physically strong enough to go back to my routine workouts four months post-op. Everyone here was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They all strive to get you back on track. I looked forward to my visits with Rob and Monique. They are great and it is convenient. If you are looking for quality 1-on-1 support during your recovery, this is the place. "
Nov 18, 2019

Nov 18, 2019
"Thanks to my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I am more informed about proper warm up and cool down techniques and can make better decisions about how much to workout.

"Thanks to my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I have a very full toolbox of things to do to maintain the progress I have made. If mt heel hurts while I am working, I have several exercises I can do right then to relieve discomfort and keep working! I love how kind and they are and how very knowledgeable and how ready they are to help explain everything, they also have a great sense of humor! To anyone thinking about coming here for physical therapy, all staff is very sensitive, gentle and supporting. They do an excellent job informing me of medicare policy. Nate did an awesome, excellent job explaining what we were doing, why we were doing it and how it relates to/ affects/ impacts treatment goals. "
Nov 11, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I have gone from being in pain to pain free. This was the best physical therapy I have ever had! The work they do is setup for your personal needs. I have told friends I know with problems to come here. Its fantastic what they can do. "
Nov 11, 2019
"My pain and discomfort levels have diminished since my treatment began at Orthopaedics Plus with Barbara. With treatment, sustained home exercise and posture sensitivity I believe I can move forward without constant pain distraction. My range of motion has greatly improved. The level of professionalism from the entire staff is combined with an atmosphere that puts me at ease. I am very comfortable with the manner in which each patient is treated. I have never been disappointed with my treatment, nor has any member of my family. Post surgical treatment has always restored us to good health. Therapists have also found and treated the root cause of other ailments. Orthopaedics Plus is the only place we go. "
Nov 04, 2019
"Since I started my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, the sciatic pain and the debilitation that goes with it has subsided. Nate is an incredible DPT. He listens, is patient and is a wonderful clinician. All of the staff are friendly and very helpful. To anyone thinking about going to Orthopaedics Plus for physical therapy, do it! You will not regret the experience. "
Nov 04, 2019

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my life is so much better. Now I can go on rides to Maine and take walks again. I am no longer limited in what I can do socially.

"Just want to say thanks to Rob Herron for helping me rehab after total hip replacement. Six moths after surgery, I was hiking for a week in the Julian Alps!"
Nov 04, 2019
"I first saw Al a few years ago. I had shoulder issues that got to the point where I couldn't even reach across to the front seat in the car to pick something up. After seeing an Orthopedist and resting it for three months nothing changed. I went to see Al and he was able to fix it. This experience opened by eyes up to how skilled and valuable an experienced therapist is. I thought I needed surgery or something more severe to fix my shoulder. Instead, Al solved my problems and my shoulder has been as good as new since then. My second stint with Al came this summer. I sprained my MCL. I knew there was only one person who I wanted to help with my recovery so came back to Al for treatment. Little did he know that I would show up on my second or third visit unable to walk. Unexpectedly, I also did something to my back. Al instantly pivoted my treatment and had the challenging task of trying to treat both issues at the same time. I always felt I was in excellent hands - Al was careful not to compromise either situation while trying to solve the other. Overall, I highly recommend Al and the rest of the staff at Orthopaedics Plus. Although I wasn't treated by anyone else, I could tell from many observations that others there are also highly trained and skilled professionals that care about all their patients. The Bedford location is not the closest to my house, and going there added significant time to my morning commute, but I ignored more convenient options only because I felt like I was in the best hands at Orthopaedics plus. I joke with Al that I will probably see him again if / when my aging body lets me down again. If that happens, there is only one choice for me in terms of who I want to help me. You cannot go wrong with Orthopaedics Plus!"
Nov 04, 2019
"I am very satisfied with the treatment I received at Orthopaedics Plus. My therapist Todd was very nice and help me progress so that my shoulder feels great. The rehab Tech's and admin staff were all very nice and I enjoyed going to therapy. I would absolutely tell someone to go there for therapy."
Oct 30, 2019
"I have been to other physical therapists and Todd has been the best. His attention to detail in proper form and patience in training has been unmatched. Its a very positive atmosphere here which has kept me motivated to do the program. I appreciate all the great professional advice and am confident it will have a positive effect for my situation on a long term basis. I would solely use this organization and Todd specifically for any future problems. Thanks!"
Oct 29, 2019
"No words can express how grateful I am to Justin from Orthopedics Plus. I came to him with knee issues which resulted in my not being able to work out or take long walks, etc. which I love to do. As an active person, it was very frustrating to have a less than functional knee and sometimes my impatience would show! I tend to be very inpatient and want everything thing fixed fast! Justin was fantastic and knew exactly how to deal with my personality and my dysfunctional knee!! He was patient, professional, and more importantly, knew how to get me up and running again! I couldn't be more appreciative to him for his patience and friendliness through out my time there. Thank you Justin and the OP staff, you guys are the BEST and I would't go anywhere else. And, by the way, my husband goes there now for hip issues. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for Top Notch PT treatment."
Oct 26, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I can feel a lot of improvement with mobility. The pain has decreased and I think more about my movements. All the staff at OP are friendly and welcoming. I would tell anyone considering PT that going to Orthopaedics Plus is a good move, it is an excellent place to have physical therapy."
Oct 24, 2019
"I've stayed active my entire adult life, including club and USTA league tennis, golf, alpine skiing and work outs at the gym. I'm 70 now and my "use it or lose it" approach has caught up with me in recent years in the form of wear and tear and repetitive motion ailments. Knee surgeries, lower back, hip, and neck pain, and most recently rotator cuff surgery, have time and again returned me to Orthopaedics Plus and their fine staff of clinicians. In recent times Justin and his staff have led me through four regiments of physical therapy attending to neck and lower back pain, osteoarthritis in my knee, and rehab from the shoulder surgery. His skill in listening bout my ailments, devising and explaining a course of action and following through with the plan has consistently succeeded in returning me to a satisfactory state of health and allowed me to continue to pursue an active lifestyle. As we worked and talked together, I especially appreciated his insights into casual factors and his coaching to modify my behaviors to prevent any recurrence of my disorders. I found their Keet Health app to be a useful tool in keeping me motivated and on track at home, especially as the home exercises varied for each injury."
Oct 17, 2019
"Although my therapy went on for a few months, the treatment exercise really helped me get through the many issues I had post vertigo. All the therapists were wonderful and helpful, especially my therapist. Alyssa was very helpful in getting me back to where I am today. The best part was the friendly and cooperative environment between the staff. I would absolutely recommend Orthopaedics Plus to anyone looking for physical therapy. "
Oct 14, 2019
"Since starting my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my shoulder is much stronger and pain free. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. I would highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus to a friend because of how much my shoulder has improved. "
Oct 14, 2019
"Since my treatment here at Orthopaedics Plus, I am much more confident about my back. I feel stronger, Felicia challenged me. The exercises were what I needed, my therapist was so young but so knowledgeable. Felicia, my therapist, had never done Judo, didn't know what it was but she studied and adjusted all the exercises specifically to target what muscles I would be using in Judo. She was impressive. Chris was attentive and engaging, great support to Felicia. To any one looking for physical therapy, I would say go to Felicia. My doctor recommended someone else at Orthopaedics Plus but due to scheduling conflicts I ended up seeing Felicia. She was awesome and I am glad"
Oct 14, 2019
"I had Todd at Orthopaedics Plus. He was great with my exercises. Everyone there did their best to make sure I understood how to do the exercises correctly. I'd highly recommend this place for PT!"

"Since starting my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my life has absolutely changed my life. The best part about the staff is that they make me feel welcome. Going any where else for physical therapy would be a mistake. "
Oct 03, 2019
"When I first began my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I had been experiencing severe hip pain and was unable to do most daily activities. It was extremely discouraging as I am a very active person. I am pretty much back to normal and besides being able to pretty much do what I was doing before, I have found my whole mood and attitude have greatly improved. Everyone seemed to work well together and to be knowledgeable of all the different areas of treatment. They were all professional from Jennifer and Scott at the front desk to Monique, Lexi and Nick in the therapy room. I know people and have told people who need therapy how great the staff is. I always recommend Ellen because she is THE BEST. This is my second time having treatment by her. Carolyn was also very good, I only dealt with her once. This is definitely the very best center for physical therapy in the area and then some!"
Oct 03, 2019
"My life has totally changed. I can now walk without limping, I have more flexibility in my ankle and a wonderful series of exercises I can continue at home. What can I say about my clinician Robert Herron? I consider myself very lucky to have been assigned to him. He worked with me to not only greatly improve my ankle but discussed and got me on a great recreational plan and explained in detail every visit how to stay healthy in total. Rob was so very attentive every visit. He was upbeat, kind and outstanding. All of the clinicians were friendly with smiles and hellos. Very upbeat and friendly location. "
Oct 03, 2019
"I can do so much more and I feel so much better doing the things I need to do since coming to Orthopaedics Plus. They are helpful and give me positive output and constructive criticism. Orthopaedics plus is an absolutely great place to receive needed physical therapy. The staff are all great to work with. "
Oct 03, 2019
"Since starting my therapy here at Orthopaedics Plus, I have improved 100% physically, emotionally and mentally. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, personable, caring, and professionally competent. They knew exactly how to train at the right level to keep me progressing. This experience changed my life. Without this therapy I would never have recovered to "normal". "
Oct 03, 2019
"Had THE BEST experience with P.T. with Al. He helped me gain strength in my shoulder after years of pain and weakness. Through my visits in the office as well as the program he set up for me to complete at home with using an app as guidance, I now have no pain and full strength of my arm / shoulder. I can't say enough good things about the staff at Orthopedics Plus. "
Oct 02, 2019
"Orthopedics Plus is a great place to go for PT. Todd was great to work with, he really helped by setting up a program that included exercises to do at home. I highly recommend this place."

"My knee pain is totally gone since I started my treatment here at Othopaedics Plus. The muscles around my knee are a lot stronger now. I can easily turn and climb flights of stairs. Ellen and all the staff here are the best. They listen to you and stick with you the entire time you are doing your exercises to check that your form and position are correct. To anyone thinking about going here for physical therapy, I would say go for it without any second doubt. "

"Because of the treatment I received at Orthopaedics Plus, I am able to walk much better and without pain and I can sit longer than I could before. My therapist explained how to do my home exercises which was very important to me. My therapist also helped me to understand why I need help and how to exercise accordingly. They know what they are doing!"

"I came to Orthopaedics Plus Physical Therapy following a serious knee injury. I was unable to walk without the assistance of crutches and was experiencing pain all the time. Rob Herron was my Therapist. He assessed my situation and got me started on an exercise program. I was actually surprised at the things I could accomplish on that first day. Now after three months of physical therapy I am back to normal activities including long walks, intensive gardening and yard work and pretty much anything else I want to do. I also have a greater understanding of how to take care of myself to avoid future injury. I found the entire staff of OP to be friendly, positive and encouraging. From the moment you walk in the door to check in or make an appointment and throughout the therapy session everyone offers a genuine smile. It's not often that you see an organization with such a consistent and positive personality. I think Rob is a model PT. He asked me many questions about the state of my knee and how I was doing throughout the process. These were not simple questions but were very detailed so he could continue to diagnose my status and modify the plan as we went along. It's clear that Rob has in depth technical knowledge, but I always appreciated his sharing it and educating me throughout our work together. The aides were always there to help and encourage and coach me through certain exercises. While Rob was out on vacation Mike Stare filled in. He challenged me with some new exercises, gave me additional information and then provided a smooth hand off back to Rob. Overall, I saw true team-work and I believe I was well cared for. I would say with great conviction that they should not hesitate to book an appointment and begin the process. I would absolutely recommend Orthopaedics Plus as my top choice for physical therapy."

"After treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I can now work out and take classes without any pain during and after working out. Friendliness, compassionate, and patient is how I would describe the staff at OP. Alyssa really took the time to find out what bothered my back and teach me ways to make it stronger. I would 100 percent recommend Op for any pt needs!"
Sep 17, 2019
"My mobility and leg strength have improved significantly since I began therapy. The evaluation initially is very important. From that evaluation a comprehensive treatment plan is formed. I feel the therapists and the rest of the team follow the plan. I think the continuity among staff members is very beneficial. I also like how exercises are added dependent upon the progress of the individual. I would and have told others of this facility and I continue to do so. I have been treated at Orthopeadics plus about 6-7 times and have always had positive results."
Sep 17, 2019
"I was dealing with shoulder pain and had trouble lifting and pushing. Since my treatment at OP, the pain is significantly less and I have an increased range of motion. Everyone is really friendly and it was quite easy to work in the treatments with my full time work schedule. Exercises for home were given to me at each session and my general well being and pain tolerance were accounted for at each session. I would highly recommend OP to any of my friends and family. The clinicians and staff are professional and very helpful."
Sep 17, 2019
"When I first came to OP after a 7 year hiatus, I had pain in my leg, a stiff back, and could not kneel down or carry groceries into the house. Since starting PT, all of the above problems have stopped to the point where I can walk 30 minutes a day pain free. The clinicians and staff at OP are very courteous, friendly, full of knowledge about your problems and helpful about any new problems that come up. I would tell anyone thinking about coming to OP for therapy to go and talk to anyone there and you will feel at ease and full of confidence that they can help you fix whatever bothers you physically. The new location and facility is fabulous and very exciting."
Sep 12, 2019

"I have come to Orthopaedics Plus for PT several times over the last few years, for various chronic and acute pain issues in my arms, back, and neck. I have consistently found a comfortable, friendly environment where all the therapist are knowledgeable and focused on understanding the patient's concerns and pain. The treatment path has always been well organized and explained, with regular adjustments made based on my progress, or issues that I have had during my home exercises. I have recommended this office to several people for their PT needs, and I will definitely be back if any of my symptoms return. Thank you so much for supporting me and guiding me to being pain free again!"

"We were so very fortunate to have found Amy! My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 12. After being put in a brace to start middle school, she was nervous and self-conscious. She started Schroth therapy with Amy soon after. Amy was amazing! She was truly an angel during a tough time. She was such an influential support for my daughter. Besides just about correcting her curve through the Schroth method and bracing, Amy was there for support with everything from clothing, to when to have the brace adjusted. We're lucky to have such an extraordinary leader in scoliosis treatment in the area. My daughter also attended many of Amy's Schroth courses for clinicians. Amy is doing great things for those who suffer from scoliosis in sharing her knowledge to help more and more people. I can't say enough about how grateful we are for Amy and Orthopaedics Plus!"
Sep 03, 2019
"My knee pain has definitely diminished since started at Orthopaedics Plus, but more importantly, I have increased understanding of the habits I have that may have contributed to the problem and how to strengthen my muscles more correctly. Nate was so patient, kind, and a very good listener. He asked a lot of questions, was very observant, and worked hard in a short period of time to teach me and equip me with my exercises I can continue moving forward. I would definitely recommend Orthopaedics Plus for PT, thank you!!"

"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I have gained so much strength and mobility back after surgery. Before PT I was limping and could not work or walk well. After PT at Orthopaedics Plus I am able to work 12+ hours, walk, and run! Felicia is so personable. The other staff were all happy to help me while she was away. I highly recommend Felicia she was awesome!"
Aug 30, 2019
"I have appreciated the exercises that Ellen has recommended I do at home, and feel she has done an excellent job explaining things to me. Her hands-on techniques have also been beneficial. In my situation (bone spurs in my spine), I have to also pursue other treatments in order to be relieved of pain, but Ellen's skill and encouragement gives me hope that more progress can well be made as I commit to the exercises to strengthen my core. I like Ellen's personality, knowledge, problem-solving skills, commitment, and interest in me and my particular concerns. She's one of the BEST (maybe the best!!) PT's I've ever worked with. The whole staff at OP has been friendly, professional, and helpful! If anyone is looking for PT definitely call Orthopaedics Plus! Ask for Ellen!!"
Aug 28, 2019
"After PT I am now able to run and do normal activities with no pain in my ankle. It is a very fun environment at Orthopaedics Plus and they treat every patient as their own even if they have never meet them before. I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus to anyone who is in need of Physical Therapy because I have come here for multiple different occasions and I have always left fully recovered from surgery. "
Aug 28, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus my range of motion in my knee has improved greatly along with my general confidence. My balance has improved and fear of falling has lessened. At OP there is an ease at scheduling, and Carolyn Harper has such a positive attitude. Anyone looking for physical therapy should request an appointment with Carolyn Harper!"
Aug 28, 2019
"Orthopaedics Plus was the best physical therapy experience I have had, They were understanding, personable and very knowledgeable.

Aug 26, 2019
"I came to physical therapy to increase bone density. My first contact with Orthopaedics Plus was in scheduling appointments with Scott, he was very efficient, warm, accommodating and professional. First meeting Ellen, my therapist, I knew I would feel comfortable. I felt an immediate connection because of her personality and direct form of communication. We always worked in the separate room, which I had requested at the time of scheduling appointments. Being more of a one-on-one person, I really appreciated that accommodation. Ellen was able to think outside of the box and create a program for me working around my limitations. Ellen has great energy and spends ample time explaining exercises, etc. I am fortunate to have worked with Ellen and would highly recommend without hesitation, her for physical therapy! Orthopaedics Plus should be thankful Ellen is a part of their staff!"
Aug 26, 2019
"After my time at Orthopaedics Plus I am able to play softball again and on time for the start of my season which I didn't think would happen. After re-injuring my ankle I found myself back at OP with Alyssa. She worked with me every Tuesday to regain my strength and get back to everyday activities. I will forever be grateful for Alyssa and all the staff at OP! All of the staff at OP are knowledgeable and want to provide the best plan possible. I had the chance to work with a new therapist Alyssa and she made coming to PT fun and really helped me get back my strength and mobility. All of the staff at OP really care about their patient's progress and are outstanding! They are the best! Highly recommend OP to everyone who needs PT!"
Aug 26, 2019
"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."
Aug 21, 2019
"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. "
Aug 21, 2019
"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!"
Aug 20, 2019
"My life has changed greatly since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus due to knowledge! I have learned what I need to do to help myself the proper way! The staff and clinicians at OP are ALL very positive and helpful. Everybody is busy, but always so helpful when needed. I would recommend Orthopaedics Plus without hesitation!"
Aug 20, 2019
"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."
Aug 15, 2019
"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."
Aug 15, 2019
"I have been a patient at Orthopaedics Plus for about 6 months due to surgery I had on left shoulder with severe rotator cuff tears and a mild bicep tear. Todd and all the staff here have been a pleasure to work with helping greatly with my shoulder improvement. I will highly recommend their facility to any one in need of therapy or personal training. Thanks to all who have help me improve. Frank Gambucci"
Aug 15, 2019
"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 "
Aug 15, 2019
"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. "
Aug 15, 2019
"Since starting my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, it sure has made it easier to adjust to the discomfort when it appears. The staff at OP are all such great human beings who always asked how I felt and made things better. For anyone seeking physical therapy I would tell them that at OP you will be treated well and they are always pleasant."
Aug 14, 2019
"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!"
Aug 12, 2019
"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. "
Aug 08, 2019
"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."
Aug 08, 2019
"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"
Aug 07, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I am out of pain! I can use my arm again for things I had stopped doing. 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!"
Aug 07, 2019
"A ski accident required surgery for my knee in order to return to my outdoor active lifestyle. Post surgery, I was seen at Orthopaedics Plus right away to begin healing and strengthening my knee. I am so pleased with the care I received! In 5 short months I went from a requiring assistance for every day needs to running. I am so thankful I can enjoy the outdoors again! Thank you!"
Aug 06, 2019
"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."
Aug 05, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my lower back no longer hurts and I am able to care for my kids, sit at my desk, and exercise without pain now. The staff at OP are very friendly and helpful. They did research to see what sort of exercises I do in workout classes so we could work towards those goals. This is my second time at OP and I highly recommend it!!"
Aug 02, 2019
"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. "
Aug 01, 2019
"Because of my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I feel completely normal again. I'm back in the gym and playing sports again. I haven't had any pain for over a month now. Every staff member at OP is genuine and seems happy to see you. They are extremely knowledgeable and can explain things so I was able to retain it. I would definitely tell someone considering OP to go. After two separate injuries my pain completely went away in each case. "
Aug 01, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my left arm is much, much, much better! The right arm is very painful as I am getting an ultrasound cortisone injection, but I have severe arthritis and will eventually need a shoulder replacement. The staff at Orthopaedics Plus is very knowledgeable, professional, personable, and caring. I would tell everyone to go to Orthopaedics Plus, as they will get excellent care which includes the therapists, the aides, and the office staff!"
Jul 30, 2019
"Treatment at Orthopaedics Plus has given me great improvement and has been very helpful. I'm able to do most of my activity and am back to myself. The staff at OP is great both male and female. I enjoy the different ways everyone has shown me. Each staff member has their unique way of working and I think that is great! I would tell everyone to absolutely come to OP for physical therapy!! My personal experience has been great, I will always tell everyone they will not be disappointed!"
Jul 30, 2019
"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."
Jul 30, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I am feeling stronger, have less pain (virtually pain-free!) and am confident with my posture. I truly enjoyed working with Felicia and the rest of the staff. Felicia helped with better posture and gave me the perfect exercises to help keep me pain-free. She has an excellent personality and it was a pleasure working with her. I would highly recommend working with the staff at Orthopaedics Plus as they they will have a very positive experience."
Jul 29, 2019
"Orthopaedics Plus completely returned my life to normal. I am now sleeping through the night and have no pain at work. I am now able to do all of everyday little things that you take for granted. 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!"
Jul 29, 2019
"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."
Jul 25, 2019
"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."
Jul 25, 2019
"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."
Jul 25, 2019
"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. "
Jul 24, 2019
"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!""
Jul 18, 2019
"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."
Jul 17, 2019
"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! Peter Grassia. "
Jul 15, 2019
"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."
Jul 10, 2019
"Since I started at Orthopaedics Plus, getting back my mobility has meant so much to me, especially since I wasn't sure that would happen. Thank you to the people at OP for making that happen. The staff at OP is outstanding, always helpful and friendly. Carolyn Harper is just an outstanding physical therapist. I have recommended OP to many of my friends, thank you OP staff!"
Jul 09, 2019
"Since being treated at OP, I have had an easier time making throws in softball; I have had very little pain and most of the time none at all. I loved that the staff was so supportive throughout my entire treatment as well as being very friendly. I would tell someone thinking about PT that OP is the right place to go and to never miss a beat when doing the exercises!"

"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. "
Jun 14, 2019
"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."
Jun 13, 2019

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. I would tell someone who is thinking about seeing OP for physical therapy to do it!!"
Jun 11, 2019
"Since beginning my treatment at Orthopaedics plus my injured area is much stronger and free from pain. I can now walk around without relying on a cane for balance and support. The best part about working with the clinicians and entire staff at OP is how everyone is positive and upbeat, making casual conversations easy and enjoyable.

May 28, 2019
"This was my first time doing any type of physical therapy so I was nervous and unsure of how things worked. 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! "
May 24, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my pain has greatly decreased. My favorite part of working with the clinicians and staff at OP was the personality they give to patients. Orthopaedics Plus is a great place to go if you want to recover at a personal level both physically and mentally."
May 23, 2019
"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."
May 22, 2019
"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."
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."
May 21, 2019
"Since beginning my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus my life has positively changed. I am now able to do more chores and other activities every day.

"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. "
May 20, 2019
"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."
May 09, 2019
"The treatment course at Orthopaedics Plus gave me greater strength and range of motion in my daily activities.

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."
Apr 25, 2019

I would highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus to any person who is in need of physical therapy services. "
Apr 25, 2019
"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! "

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."

"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."
Mar 28, 2019

Mar 25, 2019
"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.

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who needs to recover from an injury or surgery."

It is always easy to schedule an appointment and all the staff is very knowledgeable. "
Mar 21, 2019
"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."
Mar 11, 2019
"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.

Mar 11, 2019
"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."
Mar 11, 2019
"Since starting PT the pain in my neck and shoulder is gone. I am able to work as a dental hygienist comfortably and I feel stronger. 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 would tell someone who is looking to come here for PT you will not regret it!!!!!"
Mar 11, 2019
"I had a great experience at Orthopaedics Plus recovering from shoulder surgery.

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."
Mar 05, 2019
"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."
Mar 04, 2019
"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! "
Mar 03, 2019
"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!"
Mar 01, 2019
"Orthopaedics Plus has an excellent program; Todd was great; his examination of my problem was spot on and the results were great !!! 10 out of 10 and would definitely recommend!!"
Feb 28, 2019
"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."
Feb 25, 2019
"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. "
Feb 24, 2019
"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 can do everything I could do prior to my car accident since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. It improved significantly in a short period of time (4 weeks). The staff are very attentive, dedicated, and helpful. I would tell anyone looking for PT that Orthopaedics Plus is definitely worth the time to live the best life possible, free from pain!"
Feb 08, 2019
"Orthopaedics Plus has team of professionals ready to help you on your way to good health. I’ve had experience with Cherie, Todd, and Iggy and they’re all fantastic. Cherie is gentle and just what a new mom needs as she navigates the new challenges her body now presents. Todd has a gift of precision with regards to getting right down to what ails you with quick and useful tips. Iggy is always ready to lend a helping hand. I would not hesitate to recommend OP to anyone."

"I had a real problem with my hip and back for a while, but since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus it no longer bothers me and I can go out without my cane. It feels much better after my exercises. 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! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Orthopaedics Plus to anyone I know who has to have PT. "
Feb 08, 2019
"I had received treatment for one year in 2018 at Orthopaedics Plus. Ellen Poveromo was my therapist. She was amazing! Can’t say enough of how she helped with significant lower back pain. 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! "
Feb 07, 2019
"The staff at Orthopaedics plus was great helping me to figure out what my problem was, and helped me to understand what I needed to do to be able to live my life pain free. 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!"
Feb 06, 2019
"Since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus I have less back pain and more flexibility, which has been life changing. The staff at Orthopaedics Plus are amazing, very helpful and knowledgeable. The office staff is also very friendly and accommodating. I have recommended OP to friends and will continue to do so. Ellen is the best Physical Therapist I have ever been too. Ellen knows her stuff and doesn't rush through the treatment. Ellen listens and provides helpful feedback for at home exercises."
Feb 05, 2019
"I was experiencing lower back pain, and I had visited other professionals without relief. Al at Orthopaedics Plus quickly assessed the problem and worked with me to resolve it. I can’t speak highly enough about his in-depth knowledge, skills and approach. "
Feb 05, 2019
"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. "
Feb 04, 2019
"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."
Feb 04, 2019
"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!!! "
Jan 31, 2019
"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."
Jan 31, 2019
"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!"
Jan 31, 2019
"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!"
Jan 30, 2019
"My experience at Orthopaedics Plus has been nothing short of excellent. I have had PT in the past and this experience was superior. The therapists were top notch and very caring and patient. I highly recommend Orthopaedics for any PT needs. "

"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. Dr. Yvonne Hall"

"Thoughtful, insightful service. Colleen always seemed well prepared for our sessions. "

"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!"
Dec 06, 2018
"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!"
Nov 24, 2018
"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! Pattie "

"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."
Sep 19, 2018
"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!)"
Sep 19, 2018
"Since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, my range of motion has improved 100% I can walk normally and feel more confident about the way I walk and look when I walk. 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!"
Sep 19, 2018
"My life has changed for the better since starting at Orthopaedics Plus. I am now able to do all the previous things that I was unable to do or that cause me pain. Everyone at OP is very attentive to your reason why you are here. They are very supportive and continually fill you in with your progress. I would highly recommend OP due to the success I've had. "
Sep 19, 2018
" 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!"
Sep 08, 2018
"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. "
Aug 30, 2018
"Since I was treated at Orthopaedics Plus, I have gotten a handle on my pain - it has been reduced in severity, frequency, and duration. The staff at OP are highly skilled, supportive, and appropriately bossy...; They are a great team and I have already recommended them to friends. "
Aug 24, 2018
"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. "
Aug 24, 2018
"I've worked with Justin in Burlington off and on for a few years now dealing with chronic issues resulting from osteo and inflammatory arthritis. He has been an amazing help and always is encouraging and motivating. Overall all the staff I've had interaction with have been so friendly and nice and professional and can't say enough good things about the experience there. They definitely care and want to help to improve your health and well being. "

I began working with the other half of the Spectrum family, Orthopedics Plus, after I herniated a disc in my lower back. I could barely walk, but after two rounds of physical therapy over the course of a year and a half with Mike, I finally felt like I was getting my life back. I asked Mike about moving over to Spectrum, because I had seen the success of other people working with the trainers there as I was going through physical therapy. I asked my husband to join me so we could encourage each other and spend time together during training sessions. We can’t say enough good things about Spectrum. We’ve met such wonderful people; everyone who is there is positive and encouraging, and that’s not just the staff! We look forward to seeing Andrew every week, who pushes us each session to work hard, but have fun doing it. We’ve both lost weight and gotten much stronger, which comes in helpful with our day-to-day activities and hobbies. We would encourage anyone who is thinking about starting a fitness program to work with Spectrum. Their whole-body approach, from the strength training, to cardio, to nutrition, makes it easy to make permanent lifestyle changes that will make you feel better, and feel better about yourself. I say every day that I wouldn’t be able to live my life the way I want if it wasn’t for the folks at Spectrum, and I really mean it.

Kathleen H. & Dave M.

Since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I am now able to walk without a cane and have much less pain. This was my third time coming to Orthopaedics Plus (1st in 2005 with Ellen after a hip replacement)- I can’t say enough good things about Ellen Poveromo. The clinicians and staff at OP are very friendly and are truly experts in their field. I have already recommended people to OP and will continue to do so!

Margaret V.

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Orthopaedics Plus and Spectrum Fitness. This time last year, I was miserable. I was in constant pain; could barely walk; it seemed like I was having hideously long needles poked in my hip way too often; and highly trained specialists were telling me that I would just have to get used to it. This was my future. Today was an almost normal day. I had an amazing workout where I lifted lots of weight (for me); I biked to and from work; and I moved through the day with a moderate amount of discomfort. I worked hard to get here and I am grateful to the people who supported me through it all. I still have miserable days but not nearly so often. Thank you Dan for insisting I not accept the initial prognosis. Thank you Andrew & Mike for teaching me how to heal, and thank you Karen for listening to me cry through the darkest hours.

Mike Stare and his team are truly some of the most talented in the business. They provide full service consultation and coaching and make sure that their clients’ lives are transformed. They help people work through injuries, wean themselves off of medications, and improve clients’ overall lifestyle.

A year ago I was just out of Mass General wearing a huge back brace & gearing up for life with two cracks in my L3 & L4 and a summer and fall without golf, among other things. Fast forward one year – back on the course and today, one birdie, two pars and a 50 ft. putt, yes, that is a 5-0 foot putt in the hole!!! Big thanks to Orthopaedics Plus and Spectrum Fitness for putting me back together and helping me lose the 15lbs I put on while I was laid up!

I had the opportunity to work with Mike at Orthopaedics Plus while rehabilitating my surgically reconstructed ACL injury. Mike did a fantastic job of answering of all my questions and described the complex factors involved in my condition in a clear way, so that I felt confident and assured while rehabilitating my knee. Furthermore, it was clear that my surgeon had a high level of confidence in the care I was receiving from Mike.  Mike sought to not only to restore my knee function, but also to condition me so that I would be less likely to suffer future knee problems. After finishing my rehabilitation with Mike, I felt like I was in the best shape since my college soccer years. Recently, my son has been seeing Mike to care for his knee pain.   Mike was able to diagnose a rare knee condition that was not readily apparent to my son’s pediatrician.   Because of this, future knee complications for my son will likely be prevented. Mike is genuinely concerned, patient, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor to boot!  I have the highest level of trust in Mike’s abilities and strongly recommend his services for rehabilitation, fitness or injury prevention.

Having been involved in weight training and athletics my whole life I was perplexed when I woke up one morning to find I could not move my neck. Just two months earlier I had encountered pain running down my leg. I thought to myself, this should not be happening to me, this only happens to people that don’t take care of themselves and don’t workout. Over the next couple of years I visited Chiropractors, Massage Therapists and Physical Therapists. Eventually I would feel better only to have my symptoms reappear. Eventually the pain became chronic which prohibited me from participating in activities with my children as well with as the sports I still loved to play. I was given a prescription for another visit to Physical Therapy. This time I chose Orthopaedics Plus, where I met Michael Stare.  Mike’s specialty was not only in Physical Therapy, but he was a true expert in the biomechanics of the body. This was the start of my athletic life being returned to me. Mike not only rehabbed my injuries, but put me through intense training sessions which corrected the imbalances in my body, thus limiting the possibilities of future injuries. Mike taught me how to train correctly and how to develop the patience to deal with minor setbacks instead of taking various drastic measures, which could in turn develop into major setbacks. I learned there was no instant cure and in time most strains and injuries would get better when I followed his advice. I am now playing various sports with my children and looking to join an adult ski racing program. I truly believe Mike’s guidance, expertise and knowledge has made this possible for me. I have since referred friends, colleagues and family members and received nothing but profound thanks for the referrals.

I have significant scoliosis and was fortunate to find Amy Sbihli at Orthopaedics Plus. After looking for advice from medical doctors over the years, the typical response was “You’ll just have to live with it.” So I took to research myself for anything that might help me maintain an active life with scoliosis. I had read about the Schroth Method and it made a lot of sense to me. Most practitioners were out of state until I found Amy at OP. Amy’s is clearly an experienced practitioner in the field. She took the time to gather pertinent medical history, general life style and activity information necessary for treatment. She explained verbally and using drawings the exercise regime she developed for me based on the Schroth Method and what each exercise was intended to achieve. The exercises required various props and she worked with me to find ways to make them work at home. The drawings and instructions help me continue the regime on my own with the goal of achieving as much benefit as possible from these exercises. If I could have weekly appointments to continue exercising under her direction I would! Amy is caring, empathic, and skilled practitioner. I had the opportunity to participate in one of her Schroth training sessions. Not only is she skilled in the Schroth Method but she is a great teacher and imparts her knowledge in such a exceptional manner. I have given Amy’s name to a number of people with scoliosis.

My life has changed tremendously since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. I suffered what I felt was a devastating injury and I was unsure if I would be able to continue to do the things I love like play softball, run, exercise, even walk. Since working with Rob I am not only back to doing everything I love: softball, running, etc. I feel like I am even better than before my injury. P.S. I can walk in heels again. I was really nervous to start PT, but immediately Rob and the staff made me feel comfortable. When I would come to PT I would look forward to my sessions because Rob and the staff made me feel like friends/family. I would recommend Rob as well as any of the staff at OP because not only are they great physical therapists, but they are great people who really take the interest in your recovery. They always made me feel that a full recovery was possible.

My typing is at full speed with minimal pain after a few hours. I could not go more than 10 minutes before starting with Orthopaedics Plus. The staff is top notch, friendly, and really cares about their clients. I really enjoyed each session. Overall, it was a great experience. Carolyn is an amazing PT. The results of each physical therapy sessions have definitely been successful. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking to get over a physical problem.

Barry S.

I began working with Barbara in early 2018 for back and hip pain and infringements. After a thorough initial assessment, Barbara discussed general standing, sitting and walking habits to highlight for me why some of these pains arose. Additionally, Barbara embarked on a number of manipulations using techniques that were directed precisely at the areas of concern. After 6 or so sessions, I was able to get around without any of the same pains as I had had earlier. And I have utilized her well thought out instructions on how to posture myself during normal activities. Barbara is outstanding in her approach, communication, skills and treatment. Barbara and the rest of the team work very well together. Upon arriving for an appointment, the front desk staff checks me in, notifies the staff in the treatment area, I go in almost immediately, one of the staff sets me up for my routine exercises, and when finished, Barbara is ready to provide appropriate treatment. Everyone is friendly, they spend time getting to know each client, and stress education and reasons behind their treatments.I have tried many modes of treatment over the years for my back and hip pain. Chiropractic, message, rolfing and acupuncture did not provide the results that Barbara did at OP. She diagnosed the problem and tailored a treatment program that was unique to my symptoms. Additionally, more than anything, provided education on why the problem was occurring and what I could do to help myself going forward. She always stressed that her job was to do everything possible to allow me to no longer need her through learning self-treatment techniques and improved skills in conducting day to day life. I highly recommend OP.

Kim K.

I walked in to Ortho Plus 14 weeks ago and I was at my lowest. The pain and trauma it felt made me so depressed. I met with Carolyn and right away she made me feel great. Fourteen weeks later I’m feeling so good. Thank you so much. Carolyn was so patient and kind. She always made me feel special and that she understood me. The best thing was she didn’t try to push me, and she let me grow by my own pace. Everyone is always happy and there is a very cheerful environment. I would definitely recommend people to Ortho Plus. The whole staff is so nice and always right there to help. They really know how to treat their patients.

Leanna H.

My life has changed Immensely since starting with Orthopaedics Plus! They provided me with amazing exercises to help improve my lower back pain and quality of life! They are the best! First of all, everyone is so welcoming here and always remembers my name and checks in. I love how the clinicians encourage me and push me to help better my strength. I don’t have a bad thing to say! If you are thinking about coming here, do it 100%! These guys are the real deal! They are all so knowledgeable and really care about your progress. Their passion for PT is undeniable! I love this place and the clinicians here!

Nissa F.

Since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I have been able to enjoy walking longer distances ad well as climb stairs, so I can do more activities by myself and with my family. The clinicians and the rest of the staff are very warm, friendly, and of concourse totally professional. They will carefully assess your initial capabilities and steadily bring your strength and flexibility to pre-surgery levels.

Mahina L.

My life has changed very much since starting treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. I was originally on medication and was also receiving infusions for my pain. I am so happy that I do not need either one right now and am almost pain free. Originally, I was also told by my doctor to discontinue the gym and now with some modifications I am back to my workouts. The staff is extremely professional and friendly. Front desk people are very helpful and accommodating when setting up appointments. I was very skeptical when I first started but they set my mind at ease from the very first appointment. My clinician explained everything she was doing each time and gave me a lot of encouragement. She is very knowledgeable, and I felt very positive after each session. She also gave me a home care program which complemented my sessions with her. I know if there is a time that I do have a setback I will have tools to help myself. It was a pleasure to work with the entire staff. My experience was very positive. My care and the results I received for exceeded my expectations.

Cheryl G.

My daughter Nicolette has been a patient of Amy’s for just over two years. My daughter started seeing Amy to learn schroth method exercises to help with her scoliosis. We have found all the staff to be competent and friendly. Amy was able to teach my initially 9 year old daughter how to effectively engage in exercise to combat her scoliosis and neck weakness. These exercises in combination with a brace have prevented any additional progression of scoliosis. Nicolette’s overall strength has improved greatly. She no longer experiences neck pain from being startled. We will continue with Amy and/or any staff trained by Amy and highly recommend anyone with scoliosis become a patient.

Blue F.

Since I started at Orthopaedics Plus my body is more aware, and I am more cognizant of my movements, such as posture, core, angles and strengthening. Everyone there is friendly and have a positive attitude. They are open, and the education is ongoing throughout each visit. I would tell someone thinking about going to OP to make a commitment to it. Not only should you do the exercises when being seen by the therapist, but you should continue to make the exercises a part of their lifestyle so you can take care of yourself.


My life has changed dramatically since starting at Orthopaedics Plus. I can now enjoy walking my dog. I have no restriction walking up and down stairs, which is important because my house is 3 floors and has a basement laundry room. OP is a safe and welcoming place. Their encouragement has helped me build confidence in myself. I would highly recommend OP and tell anyone thinking about going that they will have success and be encouraged positively throughout the process.

Sandra M.

Preceding my first appointment at OP. I had severe pain doing basic movements and what were previously non-taxing tasks. Now, I am back to my activities and movements, from tying shoes to weightlifting. I have no pain anymore following the work I did at Orthopaedics Plus. My main clinician was extremely attentive, accurate, helpful, personable, and all-around life-changer. He made my pain disappear over the course of just a few weeks. It was a great, fun environment to get healthy. All the other therapists I interacted with were great as well. They utilized the support of the entire staff to help me with proper weightlifting technique. Those therapists were attentive, clear, and very helpful in identifying improvements to my form. If you are thinking about this place for PT, what are you waiting for?! Seriously – my expectations about physical therapy were exceeded by OP. I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

Sterling D.

Orthopaedics Plus really helped improve my movement and quality of life after major injury and multiple surgeries. At OP the staff work as a team to ensure the clients achieve the best possible results. They are all very caring and concerned about their clients. I would highly recommend OP to anyone looking for PT.

Karen E.

Orthopaedics plus has changed my life because my knee doesn’t hurt, and I can do exercises at home too! I liked working with the people there because they made some of the exercises fun. I would recommend OP because they made me better and you can do things at home when you’re done or hurting. The people who work there are nice and very helpful too. They can also make perfect times with your schedule.

Nora M.

The quality of my daughter’s life has improved since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. She was unable to participate in sports or even recess. The work done by the therapist has allowed her to perform at her typical level in school and extracurricular activities and sports. The staff has been very easy to work with. They are flexible and responsive to questions. From making appointments, to actual therapy, everyone has been helpful. The clinicians have made a huge impact on my daughter’s life. After her injury she was benched from her sports. She has actively returned to softball and is playing at 100%. She is back to enjoying the activities that she loves thanks to Orthopaedics Plus. I would highly recommend OP for treatment. The staff is knowledgeable, flexible and personable. The staff communicate clearly with both parents and children using real world examples and understandable terminology.

Katy M.

My time at Orthopaedics Plus was a great and helpful experience. I came into treatment in terrible pain and unable to complete my every day activities, but after treatment I am back to exercises, working and doing household chores without difficulties. Carolyn was kind and energetic. She continuously encouraged me along the way and made corrections when I needed them and positive reinforcement when appropriate. Absolutely go to Orthopaedics Plus! They are motivational, competent and I had great results. They also teach you life time habits to prevent further difficulties.

Lucia K.

My life has significantly improved since starting with Orthopaedics Plus, especially with doing the recommended exercises. The staff are ALL wonderful! They are kind, friendly, and caring. I would tell someone looking for PT to go to OP. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They are all looking out for the patients.

Jovina T.

I have experienced significant improvement to pain I was managing with my right knee since coming to Orthopaedics Plus. After (5) knee operations over the past 5 years I was very frustrated to still be in pain. Ellen’s PT treatment of various exercises combined with strategic taping of my knee can has profoundly improved the quality of my life….finally!! They have a very friendly staff. Also, Ellen is thoughtful in her treatment, explaining the purpose of the various exercises. I would strongly recommend OP for physical therapy. The initial diagnostic review of my case lead to a much more holistic treatment program that has lead to very positive results!

Chad C.

Orthopaedics Plus has supported me every step of my journey from treatment to helping with advocating for me with healthcare professionals. I can honestly say they have helped to improve my quality of life. The staff are very professional and care about you personally – They listen! If you are thinking about PT, going to OP is a no-brainer! You will be supported through every step of the process.

Janet B.

Since starting PT at Orthopaedics Plus, I feel happier because the pain in my lower back has greatly subsided. I can do my every day activities fairly pain free. This includes walking my dogs, exercising daily, playing with my kids, cleaning the house and gardening. I look forward now to starting my day! The staff are all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I have been to PT in the past where I dreaded going to my appointments. I enjoy my visits at OP and feel the results every time I go. Barbara has helped me tremendously and I thank her for giving me my life back. Go to OP as soon as you can. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to start my positive journey of healing.

Sarah H.

I started out with a joint that finally got so bad that the pain persisted constantly, and I had trouble doing ordinary motion. This was my shoulder’s starting point. Now after coming to Orthopaedics Plus, I have full use and little pain. Not only am I almost pain free, but I sleep better and am in a better mood. The therapist’s understanding of the body/joint mechanics and the ability to first observe and then correct a problem is a real skill. The staff is focused on the problem and is very supportive. It is a serious, but very positive and pleasant team. I recommend Orthopaedics Plus all the time. In my opinion it is all too easy to pop a ton of Advil and just live with a problem. I have several friends that I am trying to convince to come in for help!

Frank M.

Since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus, I am not as sore after physical activity and have a positive outlook as to future recovery. The staff are friendly and conversational. You feel like you get to know them. If you have aches and pains, go to OP!

Samuel B.

I’ve come to realize that my injury isn’t something that has to affect me for life. Taking the effort to work with the professionals at Orthopaedics Plus to heal has provided me new freedom from worrying about my shoulder. I no longer have reservations when performing physical activity nor am I in discomfort at work. Everyone at Orthopaedics Plus seems to actually enjoy their job. The morale and energy among the staff presents a welcoming environment for us as patients to thrive off. I didn’t feel like I was being rushed through my sessions just to get patients in the door. I can actually interact with my doctors which I feel is very uncommon. That energy and morale has made me excited to continue my treatment. Treatment at Orthopaedics Plus where you are welcomed and challenged, will get you excited to do PT and motivated to put effort into your healing.

Kyle P.

My life has changed significantly in that I have much more mobility than I had entering therapy. This is all thanks to the staff at Orthopaedics Plus. The clinicians at OP are knowledgeable, courteous and provide good analysis and plan for a comprehensive rehab with an understanding that the client is number one. I would tell someone thinking about PT to take full advantage of the high level of professionalism and competence to ensure you get the best rehab services available.

Paul M.

My life has tremendously changed since I’ve started PT at Orthopaedics Plus. I wouldn’t have made that much progress without this PT. The clinicians/staff at Orthopaedics Plus are extremely nice and compassionate. They are always helpful and trying to make anything in their power for patient’s progression and well-being. I would definitely recommend PT at OP and staff here. I have already shared OP contact with coworkers and friends. Everybody has great feedback about this place. Don’t miss out on the best PT place!

Amelie R.

I tore my ACL and my meniscus and by coming to Orthopaedics Plus, I was able to strengthen my knee a lot faster than I thought I could. Coming here and getting treatment was definitely worth it. The staff are very friendly and positive people, aside from doing their job. They act like your friends and each of my visits were positive. The clinicians here go above and beyond and really take care of you – definitely go to OP!

Nathan T.

Treatment at Orthopaeidcs Plus got me back to performing my normal day-to-day activities pain-free and with a little bit of patience, I was able to resume my regular intensity of workout routines. Scheduling has been flexible and easy, offering evening appointments, which I need as a working parent. The staff is always friendly and professional. They know what they are doing and will guide you toward your personal path of recovery. If you are looking for PT, go to Orthopaedics Plus! Be prepared for occasional set-backs if you don’t follow through with recommended modifications and at-home exercises. Trust the advice of the staff and the will help you achieve your goals!

Charesah A.

My life has changed significantly since my treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. Justin has shown me how to make some life style changes, such as lifting the laundry basket and lifting the shopping bags. Justin has worked with me during numerous phases of physical therapy. Justin is very informative and helpful. He has worked twice on my back and knees. He has given me at home physical therapy exercises. The rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend OP!

Debbie B.

My life has changed for the better since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. Justin is the greatest! The staff are very attentive and always caring. I would tell anyone looking for PT that OP is the only place to go.

Edward T.

My life has improved greatly since starting at Orthopaedics Plus. They always make me feel comfortable with my issued and correct them through proper treatment and professional guidance. I always leave believing in my future expectations can be achieved. All the clinicians and staff are courteous, kind, and professional. They are very serious, but make you feel comfortable. They become friends in helping your condition and well-being. I have not had to return! But, if I have to, I wouldn’t go anywhere else! I recommend coming to OP very highly!!

Joseph L.

Throughout my journey at Orthopaedics Plus, I learned how to strengthen muscles that support the injured area to relieve the pain in the joints. This has allowed me to be able to do activities that I was unable to do, such as dancing. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and customize a plan that will result in pain relief and better body mechanics. They are friendly and put you at ease and always explain what they are doing any why. I have been treated at OP several times, over many years, for multiple different issues and I have regained functionality and pain relief every time. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Ellen M.

Since starting at Orthopaedics Plus I am in better shape and have less pain. The staff display professionalism, warm and friendly personal care, and provide realistic goals with tangible progress. Orthopaedics Plus is a fantastic place to go for PT.

Nancy S.

I am able to drive my car again thanks to treatment at Orthopaedics Plus. Everyone there is cheerful and friendly. They really engage the patients and listen to what the patients have to say. They continually monitor the exercises and make corrections to position/postures as necessary. It’s a great atmosphere. Its clean, bright, and cheerful! I would definitely recommend!

Sue M.

I have a new start to life since treatment at Orthopaedics Plus! Now I can eyeball men without being too obvious. Sooooo grateful! I love it here at OP! It is life changing. I feel better! Definitely go!! They have a great crew and atmosphere!

Dianne B.

After my sessions at Orthopaedics Plus, I now have techniques to rely on and complete which make me feel better, stronger, and more flexible. I work with Barbara and the depth to her knowledge about how our bodies’ work is impressive. She is able to figure out your specific problem and make it so much better. I highly recommend Orthopaedics Plus!

Glenn S.

Since starting treatment at Orthopaedics Plus with Amy, we’ve gained a better understanding of the benefits of consistent exercise and the importance of knowing the proper way to perform those exercises for best results. My daughter’s scoliosis, through brace and consistent PT has lessened significantly, and the need for surgery has been avoided. We are so thankful! Everyone in the office at OP has been very pleasant and helpful. Amy Sbhili is extremely knowledgeable in the Schroth Method and has graciously and patiently brought us through to a better understanding of the very detailed exercises involved. I would encourage anyone seeking a therapist to come to this office. The atmosphere is friendly and the therapists seem very well equipped.

Laurel and Corinne H.

I’ve had a number of persistent and chronic orthopedic issues that other clinics have failed to fully correct. The clinicians at Orthopedics Plus have expertly corrected all of these issues, including torn wrist cartilage, runner’s knee, and a torn labrum. Thanks to Justin, Al, and other specialists, I can now run, throw, and even compete in obstacle races. Exercises and activities that were once beyond my reach are now achievable, thanks to the treatment I received. The clinicians and staff at Orthopedics Plus are knowledgeable, patient, and pleasant to work with. Evaluation sessions are thorough, and each treatment session is carefully evaluated for progress. Never have I felt to be the recipient of a generic program. Ultimately, however, it’s the results themselves that I am most pleased with, as over the years my sessions at Orthopedics Plus have resolved every one of my ailments. I’ve actually recommended Orthopedics Plus to a number of friend and co-workers. Each person has in turn thanked me for making the suggestion. The friendly atmosphere, extensive professional knowledge, and effective results together make Orthopedics Plus a physical therapy clinic that I strongly urge people to try for themselves.

Jan S.

I met Amy Sbihli and Orthopaedics Plus in November of 2011. I was in my late 60’s with significant scoliosis causing back pain and radiating pain down my left leg. I had done yoga classes for ten years which I thoroughly enjoyed and found very healing in many ways, but I was no longer able to continue due to my worsening condition. Meeting Amy was a totally new chapter in my life. She thoroughly assessed my condition and very quickly came up with movements and exercises which she demonstrated, had me do until I mastered, and began the notebook with her adorable stick figures so I could practice at home. A rapport was quickly established. Amy is a professional and teaches and practices the conservative Schroth Method. It is obvious that she not only totally understands the problems and pains of scoliosis but each person’s body and mindset as well. One time a scheduling error occurred and a young boy and I were scheduled for the same time. Never one to be flustered, she insisted on working with both of us and managed our great age difference with skill and humor. There is an intensity about her of creating the perfect movement to address a specific problem, and then she radiates joy as you both enjoy her successful solution. Thanks to Amy, my debilitating pain subsided and I was able to become a walker again in my neighborhood and on trips for years. It was fantastic. Although this past year my curve became in my doctor’s words “impressive” and the pain resurfaced, Amy gave me many active years of movement which I would never have had without her guidance and dedication. She helped me prepare for surgery (I was considered in great shape for the shape I was in), the surgery went very well, and I eagerly and confidently look forward to the benefit of her expertise in my recovery.

Gardner G.

After hip replacement surgery, I began treatment and Orthopaedics Plus with a notable gate in my walk and a very weak and stiff right leg from the hip through the quad area. After just 6 weeks of working with Al, I can run a full sprint without any issue. I returned to playing golf just 2 months post-surgery and playing baseball 4 months post-surgery. I have already started catching again and I look forward to returning to the ice and playing hockey in the Fall. I could see my progress with each week I attended. The staff will first ask you what your recovery goals are? They measure and record a baseline for range of motion and muscle strength. Then through a progression of exercises, stretching, and message, your flexibility and strength start improving. Each week your flexibility and strength are measured again and you can see how you are progressing against your baseline numbers. Each session adds a slightly more challenging exercise and/or stretch, that keeps you moving towards your goal. I particularly liked how the staff listened to what I wanted to accomplish and then implemented a program to obtain those goals. Seeing and feeling the gains each week, really keeps you motivated to keep working. Do yourself a favor and call them right now. They will evaluate your condition, answer all your questions, and then layout a program to help you recover quickly and safely. In a short period of time, you are back to the life style you desire and it’s just a great feeling!

Mark M.

Always a very active and athletic person, I developed a fairly serious scoliosis which has impacted my last five years with discomfort and some significant reduced range of motion and activity. I was seeing a highly qualified physical therapist at a major Boston hospital in 2016 who admitted that she did not know much about scoliosis. Blessedly, she researched and recommended Amy from Orthopaedics Plus as an expert in the field. Seeing Amy gave me hope and strength. Her positive personal manner and overall vast knowledge of physical therapy and movement with specialties in scoliosis and its impact on the body, has been a source of physical and emotional comfort and, more importantly, inspiration and hope. My physical strength has improved as has my ability to tolerate greater physical challenges. She is an exceptional therapist.

Jeanne W.

For 18 months, my daughter, Maya, was braced to prevent her scoliosis from worsening. To maximize the benefits of bracing, she began working with Amy from Orthopaedics Plus to learn Schroth exercises. We drove two hours to get to OP and every drive was well worth it. Through Amy’s exceptional skills and her intuitive understanding of Maya’s strengths and needs she was able to effectively motivate and engage Maya in her treatment for positive results. Over the course of eight months, her posture visibly improved, the rotation of her thoracic curve decreased by three degrees, and she was notably stronger and more aware of her own body. Incidentally, her gymnastics skills improved significantly, and she had her best competition year yet! Maya did ultimately require surgery and will soon resume Schroth therapy to optimize her posture and realignment following a partial fusion. Deciding to pursue surgery was one of the hardest decisions of my life. During this difficult process, Amy shared her unwavering professional support, knowledge, contacts, and experiences as we considered options and ultimately decided. Amy has truly been a life-changing individual in my daughter’s life.

Kathleen G.

I came to Orthopedics Plus post surgery after a pretty severe shoulder fracture. My Orthopedic doctor was very impressed with how well I did. Todd tailored my program to my unique situation. I believe because of Todd’s program I got the best possible outcome for this injury and have a better quality of life. The staff is great. They listen to your concerns and do their best to resolve any issues you might be having. They provide a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. I would highly recommend Orthopedics Plus. The staff is bright and caring and goes above and beyond to ensure that you get the best possible result.

Beatrice Y.

I came to Orthopedics Plus after finding out my scoliosis had progressed to severe degree. My parents and I wanted to avoid surgery but wanted to see real results. I feel so blessed to have found Amy during this journey of mine. I was able to improve all my four curves and I feel so much better. I have become more in touch with my body and I have become stronger. Not only physically, but mentally as well. I can move and work with muscles I truly didn’t know I had. Amy believed in me well before I believed in myself. She pushed me every day and thank goodness she did. I started seeing results rather quickly and I was out of my brace in a reasonable about of time. It was a lot of hard work, but it was well worth it. I love Amy for her positive attitude. Her happiness and positivity made me so motivated to work hard. Even when I wasn’t having a good day, or if I maybe slacked off since the last time I saw her, she never let me quit. She never pushed me to a point where I couldn’t handle, and she never made me feel like my end goal wasn’t in reach. Her excitement made me excited to work harder than before and it pushed me to become stronger. Go see the staff at Orthopaedics Plus! I had an amazing experience. It was a very welcoming environment, everyone is very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Orthopedics Plus to anyone looking for a great physical therapist.

Zoe F.

I am a client of Dr. Amy Sbihli. Through out work together, my sever dextroscolios has held its own, and due to Dr. Sbihli’s expertise some of the curve abnormalities have actually decreased. The staff is pleasant, courteous, and efficient. The clinicians are very gifted teachers and have remained an advocate for me over the years. Amy has overextended herself well beyond the boundaries of her duties. Without her help and guidance I would have failed in my goals. Dr. Amy Sbihli is outstanding in all ways. I am an internal medicine doctor, have 5 college degrees, and thus have had many teachers and mentors along the way. Dr. Amy Sbihli is by far the most outstanding.
