Anthony B.
This was my first time going to PT and I couldn’t imagine having a better experience than I did at Professional PT in Backbay! I worked closely with Nick Almonte, who was beyond supportive and encouraging. He helped me meet my goals in a way that worked for me. I have learned so much through Nick... that I will carry with me going forward. I also was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Danica Lynch, which just further showed me how supportive the entire staff is here. Danica really took the time to get to know me and my goals, which made me feel even more comfortable every time I came more
Tiffany M.
I came in for a rugby-related shoulder injury and I couldn't be happier with the care I received over the past few months. I primarily worked with Nick, who was exceptional. He was not only friendly and enthusiastic, but also highly skilled at tailoring my program to meet my specific goals. I... initially had a very limited range of motion and was unable to bear weight, but I have now returned to lifting and sports. Nick got creative with my treatment, ensuring that every exercise and session was effective in getting me ready to return to the pitch -- this made all the difference in my recovery.I highly recommend this practice to anyone in need of physical therapy. They truly care about their patients and go above and beyond to help you achieve your recovery goals. Thank you Nick, and the entire team, for all the support!read more
Andy I.
The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable! Nick helped me go from barely running 1km with pain to 4 miles with no pain. I’d definitely recommend this practice to anyone.In addition, they were super helpful in checking my insurances coverage of their services.
Peter H.
Professional PT in Back Bay changed my quality of life. I worked with Danica after a severe neck injury when other medical treatments failed. She got me feeling better in weeks and totally rehabbed my neck to where it was better than before the injury. Danica also evaluated both knees, shoulders,... and my back. She then tackled all the injuries that has troubled me since my mid thirties. Even on those occasions when she wasn't available, the Professional PT team executed flawlessly on her plan to bring me all the way back. I am 55 years old and for the first time in two decades I am pain free and able to train the way I did in my late twenties because of Danica and team.I highly recommend Danica and the Professionsal PT team at Back Bay. I don't miss the pain, but I do miss my sessions. They made all hard work fun and the results far exceeded anything I could have hopedread more
Serina B.
Friendly staff, great location & amazing care! Would highly recommend this establishment to anyone considering PT for new or chronic injuries in the Back Bay area. From the receptionists to the physical therapists, all members of the Professional PT staff are welcoming, helpful, and provide... incredible insight and more
Danny M.
I've had an amazing experience at Professional PT in Back Bay. I've worked with Danica and a few other of the team members following shoulder surgery and the recovery process has been going great. The team is incredibly knowledgeable, and have helped me progress on a week to week basis.I look... forward to going to my sessions and would highly recommend this location!read more
Erin C.
I came to Professional PT in Copley after weeks of irritating low back pain. I saw Nick consistently for several weeks and he worked wonders! He made sure to check in at the start of each session and review what’s working/not working. He also frequently checked in while performing my exercises to... modify/correct if needed. He personalized my exercise program by tying in my own personal goals (returning to work/gym pain free) which I was so thankful for. Even when I consistently had the latest appointment in the day, Nick was always energetic and super attentive. I was discharged about 5 weeks later back pain free :) I am appreciative of all his help!read more
Josh W.
Amazing PTs! Have been seeing both Danica and Eric for my ACL recovery, preop and now postop. I am positive that my recovery has been going so well because of their attention to detail, knowledge, and ability to motivate me. As a physician myself, I can safely say these guys know their stuff. On... top of that, the location is convenient (right next to Copley), they are flexible with scheduling, and always friendly and accommodating. Cannot recommend highly enough!read more
Khuloud A.
Erich LaFalce is truly exceptional! With his expertise and dedication, I regained strength in my knee. He ensures patients are comfortable and well-informed throughout the rehabilitation process. I couldn't be happier with the results and highly recommend his top-notch physical therapy services to... anyone in need.Overall, the team was incredibly kind and more
Mia F.
Amazing experience at Professional PT. I worked with Brendan at the Back Bay office following a knee injury. Brendan is incredibly knowledgable, reassuring, and dedicated to your recovery. He worked with me to create a program that I could do from home, the gym, or at their office. He checked in... frequently, followed up after sessions, and was super accommodating w/ my schedule.I genuinely looked forward to going to my sessions!!The facility is always clean and organized, and scheduling sessions was so easy. Also conveniently located steps away from the Copley T stop!read more
Jamila B.
The amount of freedom and confidence I have gained as a result of the skills and patience of Brendan is dumbfounding. I was skeptical, at first, but I have improved weekly and I am slowly regaining my life. Brendan, Sophie and Alex and a few others whose names I cannot remember are outstanding. One... can tell the overall culture is that of safety, progression and professionalism. My restored strength has enabled me to be a better friend, coworker, daughter and niece because I am no longer experiencing excruciating pain. I’m forever more
Katie M.
Brendan and the team at Professional Physical Therapy supported me through an intense skiing accident, injury rehabilitation, knee surgery, and post surgery recovery over a period of an entire year. I could not have asked for better care. They were immediately able to get me in within one week of... my accident and had me on a plan with exercises and rehab to be able to adapt to whatever the MRI results turned out to be, specifically if I would need surgery or not. When we did find out I needed surgery, Brendan was able to think long term with my insurance allotments and ensure that the weeks leading up to the procedure would improve my recovery time and results. Post surgery, there were wholistic check ins, mobility training, and a well built out recovery plan. He pushed me to get back to my status as a competitive dancer and athlete and matched my training to my lifestyle goals, all while prioritizing my health and recovery.I will be recommending everyone I know to Brendan and the rest of the Professional PT team. I could not have done this without him, and am so happy to say that I am now cleared and back on the dance floor feeling strong and more
Steven F.
Brendan and everyone at Professional Physical Therapy are exceptional. I injured my shoulder at the gym and Brendan knew exactly what kind of therapy I needed. He makes you feel comfortable and always asks how you are progressing. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to discuss my course of... treatment with my doctor. Jason at the front desk went out of his way to obtain an extension from my insurance company to continue treatment. I would highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy and Brendan if you ever need physical more
Robin Goodfellow M.
I have now had two different cycles of physical therapy with Professional PT and I can confirm that they are indeed both professional and effective. The physical therapists are friendly and thorough; they take into account my whole self and my actual lifestyle when coming up with a treatment plan.... They've also been great about recommending helpful activities to do outside of PT that will contribute to food more
Sara Van S.
Had a wonderful experience here with Erich, Danni and G. Staff was knowledgeable friendly and caring. They answered all of my questions and gave me encouragement and support throughout the process. Getting injured was stressful but, the Professional PT team members were a source of reassurance and... consistency that was really helpful in my recovery. It was an empowering experience where I learned how to better understand my body/ injury and learn how to manage my recovery independently. Would highly more
Amanda G.
I was so impressed with the care, professionalism, and clean environment of Profession PT! The staff are amazing and really take the time to listen to your needs and concerns. And each session is tailored to your needs! I would 100% recommend for anyone looking for physical therapy!
Ilker Y.
Just like the name suggests, everyone in the staff is extremely professional and highly competent. They are kind and patient. The place is spotless clean and they take COVID-19 seriously following a proper prevention protocol. The view of Copley Square from wall-to-wall windows makes the therapy... very pleasant. The equipment is up to date making you feel like you are in an upscale gym. I highly recommend it. I wish you a speedy more
Joyce J.
Excellent experience and amazing team to work with! Danica is exceptionally personable and knowledgeable. Ghazi and Jason ensures my sessions very smooth and effective. Highly recommend!
Eunseo K.
Loved working with the team here. Erich, Danni, and G were great in solving persistent back problems of years and giving me great tools and support. I feel confident leaving and have an amazing set of skills to utilize when I flare up. Wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.
Jack R.
Highly recommend Pro PT! Their staff is delightful, informative, and extremely helpful when it comes to this stuff. I had the pleasure of working with Erich and he did an amazing job at helping me regain a lot of health in my hip. Going here is a no-brainer.
Matthew K.
Highly recommend! As I looked into getting PT, I extensively googled around and read reviews to figure where I would like to get my shoulder injury treated. Fast forward three months, for sure made the right decision. The people there are welcoming and invested in your recovery journey, which made... the sessions enjoyable and something to look forward to. I had the pleasure of working with Erich and Danni, who are both fantastic. They know their stuff, are amiable and care about you as an individual vs. just a patient. Will miss them and am grateful for their help. Initially, I felt pain just lifting my arm up but now can once again use it without more
Julia P.
Such a great experience here at Pro PT! I saw a major improvement in my injury (nearly back to normal), the staff was helpful and knowledgeable and the facility is always clean. Definitely recommend!
Jane C.
I was very impressed with the professionalism of the entire staff. All were knowledgeable and worked well together. Even though there were several patients every time I was there, there was always an air of calm and efficiency in the area. Evan was very instructive, always making sure I... understood why each exercise was being done as well as how to do it correctly, leaving me able to continue to rehabilitate on my own. Thanks to all the staffread more
Thomas Braxton J.
Great team over there!… truly professional and most importantly, caring. Helping me get back to my craft. Too notch!
Trisha S.
I have had such a great experience at Professional PT over the past couple of months and have overall felt a huge improvement. My PT Erich was always so helpful and informative when it came to explaining importance of treatments as well as progression and regression ideas. It was always such a... great time chatting with him as more
Corey G.
Having dealt with multiple bouts of physical therapy for knee issues over the years, my experience with Professional Physical Therapy’s Back Bay office has been hands down the best and I can’t say enough good things about the team! They’re all very personable and accommodating and you will never... feel like you're just another patient. All of the therapists and technicians were awesome and will give you their full attention and offer invaluable guidance along the way.I worked primarily with Stephanie who’s absolutely phenomenal and immediately identified underlying issues that ultimately lead to my knee discomfort. She is very knowledgeable, attentive and pragmatic, always addressing concerns and consistently ensuring you are progressing. The treatment is definitely catered to your specific needs/feedback and when followed correctly, will absolutely have a positive long-term impact.I can’t recommend this facility enough if you are considering physical therapy, they truly care about their patients and always put in the extra effort to help you make a full more
Zairo B. C.
I had pain in my rotating cuff and in less than 10 session it was gone!Excellent team! Very competent, attentive and friendly. I highly recommend them.
Brian M.
I arrived with a really bad hamstring injury incurred while training for a half marathon. I wasn't expecting to make it but thanks to the fantastic team I managed to finish the race without injury. It's hard to express in words just how good this team is. I would recommend them to anyone looking... for professional, caring and competent PT. Additionally they seem to work together as a team with a quiet competence that is very reassuring.Updating this in Jan 2022 after being treated for a hip and back issue. I arrived with a very stiff and sore lower back and hip. Evan quickly established a good treatment routine and despite a self inflicted injury towards the end of my treatment ( I helped a friend moving house) the final result was fantastic. Hopefully I won't need any more PT but if I do, I'll know exactly where to more
Ahaan R.
I popped my shoulder out playing basketball for the second time and to be a great extent, the impact was scary and suggestive of serious damage. Not quick to go the surgery route, I knew I had to turn to the Professional PT Boylston location. I've now gone through the experience there twice... recovering from the same shoulder injury and both times, I was able to recover in a healthy fashion, thanks to Erich & Lauren.A few months later, I am almost right back where I was, both in everyday life, with the health of my shoulder and I am about to be cleared to return to sports activity and ready to be the active everyday basketball player I am used to being. The process has not only been easy and mentally reassuring but also enjoyable. I would recommend that anybody who wants to avoid the scary prospects of surgery and distress tries going here for PT more
Matt C.
Stephanie helped me do PT virtually during the pandemic after shoulder surgery for a torn labrum. She was innovative in designing my recovery plan. She designed exercises I could do at home with basic workout equipment. From working with her, I was able to get my shoulder in shape in only a few... months after surgery. Throughout the process, Stephanie was helpful in all my questions simple or complex. She even designed some exercises to help me get back into shape for golf season. As a result of my first great experience with her, I went back to Stephanie for help with a back injury a few months later. For a second time, she designed an at-home program that got me back on the golf course quickly. She would be my first choice if I need PT more
Elena G.
I have been going to Professional Physical Therapy for years, whenever I have an injury or flare up. The staff is very welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient. They always find a way to fit me in and help me when I need it most. Stephanie is absolutely fantastic!
Nik M
Erich helped me with a knee issue that had been bothering me for about 10 years. He identified a couple of potential root causes in the first session and adjusted my exercises responding to my progress. He also spent the time to explain to me what I am experiencing and how we are tackling it. I am... no longer having the knee issues I had.Erich and everyone on the team I interacted with was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.Incredibly impressed and recommend them highly!read more
Charles M.
The staff here is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I had a rather unique diagnosis and they were able to pin point my issue and put me on a recovery plan that fully relieved my symptoms. With any PT you have to put in the work and follow the plan when you're not in, but if... you do that these people should generally have you feeling better in a matter of weeks. Couldn't recommend moreread more
Annika G.
Thank you! I guess is the only and right thing to say. Hannah and her team made me feel so very welcome from the first day I stepped foot into their practice. They helped me regain strength after my accident, explained how everything worked, guided me mentally, and even provided me with a workout... program after my scheduled sessions. They were always happy to adjust to my needs and wishes, and I always welcomed their suggestions for improvement. If you wanna be treated right and have a great time during physical therapy, I suggest to make an appointment.Hope to see you soon under different circumstances (no accident hopefully).Keep doing what your doing. You are more
Jessica W.
When I injured my knee this summer, I knew PT was in the cards and I knew just where to go. Professional Physical Therapy helped me recover from surgery after an open fracture to my ankle 5 years ago. The team left a lasting impact, as they helped me heal and get stronger every day. I loved the... team aspect, how they worked and communicated as a team, to me and with each other. They also made sure I had take home exercises to do as well.They not only guided me through the rehab mechanics, but they supported me as a person as well. I was going through the worst time in my life and the professional and personable nature of this PT team had a positive impact on my mental health as well. These are a few reasons why I returned and why I would recommend Professional Physical Therapy to anyone who wants to not only heal from an injury or treat a chronic issue, but to come out better than before. Thank you Tamara and Jason (both Jason's!), and Stephanie too, of course!read more
Valerie T.
Hannah has been nothing short of amazing and has really helped me with my shoulder. 10/10 recommend!
Michael W.
Great location for PT. Well located at Copley. The team (esp. Hannah) is great!
Paul L
Amazing experience here! I'm so glad that I chose PPT in Back Bay. Hannah and her team, Lauren and Erich, are the best in the business. They are not only skilled at their profession, they are also friendly and caring. I am very pleased with the treatment and the result that I've got in such a... short period of time.Highly recommended!!!!read more
Manuel Z.
I wish I could give these folks 10 stars. Seriously... Erich and Lauren have been extremely helpful in my recovery. I came in feeling like my body was falling apart. But after working with the. I feel brand new. They're true professionals and give off the kindest vibes. The culture of the place is... also lighthearted and playful. I wish them the best.Seriously! If you're in the Boston is area and pt definitely hit them up!read more
Kelcie was wonderful: patient, kind, and very thorough with all instructions. I especially appreciated her encouraging “I have faith in you!” comments.
Ashley P
I could not have had a better experience. I primarily worked with Steph to rehab my hip after surgery. She is so knowledgeable and always takes the time to listen and explain. No one wants to go to PT but if you have to, the entire team here is fantastic!
I've been for two different issues I've had physically, and both times I've had wonderful experiences. I worked with Maria the first time and Tamara the second and I couldn't recommend it enough for effectiveness and also for everyone being such nice company while you're doing your stretches or... what have you. Great help from even greater people!read more
Caroline R.
Talk about a great experience all around. From the moment you walk in….to the second you leave. Always greeting you with a hello and how are you/ how was your weekend etc. They care about your progress and more specifically they care so much about how it impacts your day to day life and want to... help you get back to what you used to be able to do. I work with Tamara and she truly is AMAZING. I couldn’t recommend this PT more to anyone!! You will be so happy you came and are investing in yourself! Thank you Professional PT!!!read more
Colin C.
Everyone that works there is great, always helpful and friendly. Especially Hannah, who treated my persistent knee issue. She assessed my knee, put a treatment plan in place and now I'm running again! Highly recommend for anyone looking for exceptional physical therapists!
Joanna R.
I had an overall amazing experience at Professional Physical Therapy! Given that I was going to PT in the midst of a pandemic, I was nervous about the safety of being around too many people- but everyone there did a great job at keeping distance with other clients, cleaning down the equipment, and... making sure everyone felt safe! Hannah was so kind and caring and actually made PT fun :) will definitely recommend Hannah and Professional Physical Therapy to anyone who needs it!read more
Saya O.
Professional PT and its employees have been extremely helpful. All my symptoms are completely gone in less than a month. I mainly worked with Tamara, who is very knowledgeable and most of all, caring. Same applies for everyone else. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Emily G.
I have had an amazing experience here! Hannah has been great, extremely helpful and her and the rest of the staff are very nice. I would definitely recommend and would come back if it were ever needed!
Laurie F.
I had such a positive experience at Professional Physical Therapy! No one wants to have to do PT, but my therapist here knows her craft, explains it clearly, and gets me on the road to recovery. My appointments were easy to book, and I actually enjoyed attending! I dealt with Tamara for PT and... Jason for administration/billing/booking. Five stars all around! 🤩read more
Dylan C.
Tamara and her student Emily are absolutely wonderful! I could hardly walk and they got my back on my feet! I am running now. Super kind and caring. They also are very intelligent and experts in their field. You could not ask for a better group of people to help you. The location is also easy to... get to from the green line and orange more
Zack L.
Incredibly friendly, caring, and skilled staff! After attending physical therapy on 3 separate occasions with different providers, I’m blown away by the progress I’ve made with the help of the Back Bay Professional PT team over the last couple months. Highly recommend!
Nicole C.
Hannah is amazing and the team at Back Bay office were integral in helping me rehab my knee after surgery. They were flexible with scheduling and worked as a team to make sure all equipment was sanitized between clients while getting us in and out on-time. I am feeling much better now and would... return if needed but hoping that won’t be the case any time soon!read more
Nadia C.
Highly recommend them! I arrived with shoulder and knee problems and they got me quickly on the road to recovery. Super friendly staff and 5-star treatment from Tamara !
Justin B
Loved my time here! The whole team was excellent and responsive. Had great results and always looked forward to my sessions.
Laira B. T.
Outstanding experience! From my first visit to this day, I was greeted by a friendly team of staff members that was eager to help. When I first called to schedule my appointment, they understood my sense of urgency given I had recently gotten into an accident, and they booked me for my initial... evaluation later that same day.My first appointment with my outstanding PT (Hannah McDuffie) was as extraordinary as the follow-up care: comprehensive (not just focused on the physical pain I called out, but other associated symptoms of my concussion, sleep / work arrangements, etc.), adaptive to my progress / how I was feeling, and comfortable from a clinical rapport perspective. It's been so refreshing to see my PT care so genuinely about my progress and answer questions about my current situation in a way that is comprehensive and knowledgeable, while simple enough for a patient to understand. Additionally, I've greatly improved my neck mobility after only 8 sessions, which was quite limited when I initially came into the clinic.I would highly recommend ProPT's Back Bay location to anyone seeking physical therapy more
Brynne O.
I have nothing negative to say about this place. I have been going to PT for years for an ongoing foot problem. After finally having an intense surgery, I went to Pro PT for recovery. It is safe to say that both of my feet have improved dramatically in only a few months time.The staff is... incredible, especially my physical therapist, Hannah. Hannah has been right by my side through the whole process before and after surgery, including getting in touch with my doctor to ensure I was preforming the right exercises for a speedy recovery. Additionally, Hannah has made me feel incredibly comfortable from the beginning and now. We always laugh together and she goes above and beyond for all of her patients when entering the facility. Also, the Back Bay manager, Steph, is one of the most kind-hearted, genuine people I know. Although I have not have had the pleasure to work with all the physical therapists, I do know they are all extremely knowledgeable in their craft and do their utmost best with every one who walks in, with any kind of physical health issue. I would recommend this place to EVERYONE. You will not be disappointed!read more
Al P
I had a pretty nasty ankle injury and as a daily runner I was devastated but from day one Maria was great and lifted my spirits. I loved the energy and how dedicated every staff member were to their jobs—from the front desk to the interns. Supportive, knowledgeable and very impressed with their... daily attention to details. By the time my sessions were completed, I was a much stronger runner/athlete; so much so that there’s a decent chance for me to qualify for the Boston marathon now. And that belief alone has a lot to do with the great work of the fine people at Professional PT. Highly recommend!!read more
Jillianne S.
The place is a little small but it's got all you need! The PTs are great (especially Maria) and there has never been a time where I did not feel welcomed. It's also important to add that during the COVID pandemic, I felt safe exercising there as the staff was conscious and considerate of proper... safety guidelines (also shoutout to the PT aids who guided you through exercises and sanitized everything!). Though my injury was common (sprained ankle), Maria made an effort to fulfill my goals of getting back on the climbing wall/rock and worked on my dynamic movement. I would definitely recommend! This place is also really close to the green line for those who take the more
Dylan S.
This was my first time in PT and Maria was wonderful in helping with my back injury. Outside of Maria, everyone working at Professional Physical Therapy is extremely professional, kind and great at what they do. They all do an amazing job safely working with patients and the clinic is well... maintained and clean. Would recommend this location to any/ all people who more
Kristen D.
Going to professional PT and seeing Stephanie twice a week was the best part of quarantine. Really great and welcoming environment. Thank you!
Hamed A.
They are the best. Very knowledgeable and caring staff! Always on time and super friendly!
Morgan P.
I have been to Professional PT for two different injuries and it has been by far the best place I've received PT treatment. The therapists there are extremely knowledgable, experienced, and kind. I felt so supported, both in the recovery from my physical injuries and in the emotional tolls that... accompanied them. Maria Stavros was my PT for both of my injuries, and I could not give her positive enough feedback!! She was extremely patient with an especially stubborn injury that I had unsuccessfully tried to resolve with other doctors and PTs around New England. I would highly recommend Professional PT, especially Maria!!read more
Catherine P.
I cannot say enough good things about Professional PT, especially the therapist I work with, Stephanie Novello. I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder earlier this year which is an incredibly painful condition. Stephanie helped me as much as she could until I could get an appointment with my... orthopedic doctor and eventually had manipulation under anesthesia, which breaks up the scar tissue causing frozen shoulder. I've since been driving into see Stephanie at their Boylston Street clinic, even though I'm currently working from home in Quincy; AND my car has no AC so you know they're good when you're driving in 95 degree weather just so you can get to the best therapist in the city, in my opinion. Don't suffer any longer - go to Professional PT. They're knowledgeable, professional, compassionate. I highly recommend!read more

After pursuing my first dream of graduating from Providence College, I went on to MCPHS University for my DPT.

I have been fortunate to complete IOMT level one with Martin Langaas and am currently in the Boston University Fellowship in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy.

Having played sports for the majority of my life, I found myself in physical therapy receiving treatment often and this sparked my interest. This led me to Northeastern University, where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in May 2021. While my initial interests were mainly related to sports, completing three clinical rotations in the outpatient setting has resulted in my interests growing to include treating any case that walks through the door. I am always looking to expand my knowledge, and am currently doing so as a candidate for the Level I residency of the Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (IOMT).

Throughout my entire life, I have participated in athletics. From little league baseball to collegiate wrestling, I always lead an active lifestyle and was a part of a team. With physical therapy I found that I am not only able to do both of those things but help others do those things as well. Early on in my education at Springfield College, I grew fond of the idea that “exercise is medicine” and it’s been an integral part of my philosophy ever since. After graduation in 2020, this philosophy further blossomed throughout my time in graduate school at Boston University where I was able to put that philosophy to work. Over many weeks of hands-on clinical education, with one clinical experience right here at Professional Physical Therapy, I was able to help many different patients with a wide variety of conditions. These experiences only further enhanced this philosophy and increased my desire to help people on a day-to-day basis through movement and exercise.
