Christopher Costello, my PT and the team led by him are excellent, knowledgeable, attentive and patient. The place is very clean, the atmosphere friendly and pleasant. The program Chris has designed and developed for my back and shoulder pains strikes a thoughtful balance between targeted hard... work, rigorous exercises and soothing breaks. And I get regular reminders for a manageable load of daily homework. I feel so much better now than when I began. With growing confidence in their skillful guidance, I’m also more optimistic about further improvements. This has been a very positive, invigorating experience. Thank you, Chris!read more

I worked with Chris C to relieve pain in my arthritic hips, increase strength, and regain flexibility. Chris is a fantastic therapist who understood my goals and worked with me in a collaborative program. His intervention was effective and helpful. I can split logs for firewood again.

I had the pleasure of working with Christopher Costello for a couple of months after my ankle surgery and he helped me to start walking and get my strength back. He’s the best and I highly recommend him.

Chris and Nate took great care with me after my knee replacement! Their goal was my total recovery and I was lucky to find them. Thanks, Professional!

I am in a period of regaining strength and flexibility from a chronic shoulder ailment. Treatment began in June and continues. I have nothing but praise for the care I have received at PPT. From ease of scheduling to on-time meetings with my therapists and their aides, I have been treated with... close attention to my condition but also to me as a person. The two are closely related. Mind and body are in synergy. They influence each other. There is regular re-evaluation of my progress (online and in person) and the staff have worked out a treatment plan for me that changes as my body changes -- for the better. At 74 years of age, I know that my body has certain limitations that wear and tear in general have produced, but I must say I feel a little younger! I am always encouraged to just try a little harder but never pushed beyond my limits. My therapists have interpersonal as well as technical skills and knowledge of the body's functioning. Seriousness of purpose and a sense of humor go together well in this field. All of the factors together have led to improvement for me: more flexibility, stability and strength and confidence.read more

Susanna Tam is an excellent PT. She knows a lot about the muscle groups that she educated me on. She knew exactly what my body needed to work in order to strengthen and help recuperate my injuries the correct way while also allowing me to continue doing the physical activities I enjoy.

Professional PT’s Amarinder Parmar came essentially required by my surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery for the continuation of my therapy.My experience and results with Amarinder as well as the entire facility and staff have been nothing short of remarkable.She has excellent bedside manner... while staying focused and completely no nonsense regarding my progress and recovery.She is not afraid to push me to the appropriate limits and hold me accountable in receiving my desired results.After several months of in office visits along with full at home programs and technology, she and the staff are starting to feel like an extension of the family.I highly recommend for any PT needs especially post op. Thank you to Amarinder and the Professional PT Chelsea staff.read more

I believe that my PT Susanna, is very knowledgeable about exercises to get relief from the pain. I am also learning exercises to build up stomach and thigh muscles to better support the back. I was sceptical going in, esp. because of my age, but I feel much better. I also realize that to stay... pain free. I need to do the exercises often. Thanks Susanna and Professional PT.read more

He’s a total pro and he gets results! I am so much stronger after working with him and I am completely pain free! A few... years ago for a different issue, I worked with Susanna who was also excellent!read more

This is a very great physical therapy location!! The pt are very personable and connect with patients from day one. They don’t make you wait for service they are professional and pleasant to work with. Unlike a previous Pt clinic this practice is down to earth and hands. They have a dynamic pt... team Zarah, Sean, Nate and Chris! The receptionist is very polite and works with your schedule!! I highly appreciate the fact that they are very very flexible with their patients. They are willing to try new exercise and routines to get you up and going. I’m still a work in process but God Bless this practice they are heaven sent. The doctors haven’t given me a concrete answer as to why I have the pain but they have been able to work with me decreasing and managing the pain as needed!If you are in pain definitely book with the Chelsea locationread more

The team of therapists led by Christopher Costello are kind, professional, patient and will gently push you to recover and heal. One leaves the session feeling limber and good. Muscles that one didn’t know existed or used in a long time will be sore, but once that has passed, the affected area... feels much better. In my case, I have sciatica from an accident years ago, which is sending shooting pains down the right side of the body. Chris and the other therapists ask questions to determine progress and also stretch out the back to balance the exercises. The “homework” to be done between visits is not long to accomplish and can be scaled up or down in difficulty for improvement. My thanks to Chris, Anthony, Yvonne, Declan and Ava for their informative guidance and therapy.read more

Bio

In High School, I was unable to determine a career path that I was enthusiastic about, but having been through Physical Therapy for my own injuries, I reluctantly decided to accept an internship with a local clinic. What I discovered was a professional that combined both my fascination with health and fitness, and my desire to help others. Almost immediately I decided this was the career for me. Throughout college and working professionally, I have loved being able to expand my knowledge of treatment, and continue to improve my craft. This year I am taking the next step in my Physical Therapy career, and am currently enrolled in an Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency.
