I was extremely impressed with the treatment that I got from Professional Physical Therapy. Alicia and her team were friendly, took time to understand where my pain was stemming from, and not only provided exercises for current pain but helped with prevention exercises. Alicia is a marathon runner... and kindly offered her advice, tips, tricks and I could not be more satisfied with my experience with her and her team!read more

I recently saw Alicia here for a hip issue that a surgeon recommended I have complex surgery for. She felt that this most likely could be effectively dealt with with muscle strengthening and PT and she was absolutely correct!She, and the ancillary staff, were tremendous! There is a wonderful... atmosphere in the practice; everyone is so friendly and caring and make the PT experience fun and enjoyable and I would unquestionably recommend Alicia and this practice.read more

I had dislocated a vertebrae in my neck causing pain and excruciating headaches. Alicia Burillo is a miracle worker. I left an hour later feeling much better and after several weeks of therapy the pain was gone. I would 100% recommend this PT and Alicia in particular to anyone who needs therapy.

Highly, highly recommended ! I am so appreciative of all the work that the folks here did for me. Alicia greeted me on my admission to the service, and worked hard to understand the issues I was struggling with. She collaborated with me to find a treatment plan that helped me get over my acute... symptoms and back to doing what I love to do. Kassie picked up my case once I was admitted and helped so much to get me back to top form. Colleen and Jack helped out tons with exercises, and Colleen went the extra mile to assist with scheduling, and insurance issues. I had several relapses during treatment, and in each case, Kassie and Alicia worked hard to understand what caused the symptoms, and what new exercises we could use to help stave them off in the future. Tons of manual therapy helped ease these flare ups, and got me back to top shape. I had one or two flare ups that were especially painful and emailed Alicia looking for guidance. She replied to these emails almost immediately and had lots of good ideas to manage things. I am sure this was no small feat while she was also running a very busy clinic!! Alicia and Kassie were so helpful in addressing my wish to plan a transition back to my regular activity level, and Kaline's referral to a physical trainer was invaluable. As a former Nurse, I was also so impressed and appreciative of all the measures that each member of the team took to prevent the spread of Covid: from masking to wiping down surfaces, to temp checks, I felt the clinic as was safe as it possibly could be. This was not an easy task for the clinicians there, but boy do I appreciate it! Thank you all at Professional PT!read more

I cannot say enough about Alicia and this practice. A few short weeks ago I was completely unable to move. A small movement was all it took and my back was thrown out. I am a 37 year old mother of 3 small kids so this wasn’t an option. I couldn’t hold my 13 lb. baby! Colleen got me in quickly and... Alicia started working on me immediately. It took only a few visits and I was able to start doing things again. Alicia never pushed me too hard, and everything she did she did gently. She gave me the tools to help myself get better at home as well. I am so grateful for her and Colleen’s help! Both physical and emotional at a time when I was so upset that I couldn’t move. I recommend this practice to anyone & everyone. Especially if your goal is pain relief and strengthening. Thank you guys so much! I feel completely lucky and grateful that I found you!!read more

Professional Physical Therapy in Newton, MA is definitely a great place. All the staff, especially Jane, Alicia and Colleen are extremely knowledgeable, dependable, professional and courteous. They all make sure to answer any questions you may have about your therapy program, insurance,... out-of-pocket costs, and to work within your schedule. Though my appointments lasted over 6 months to achieve the best range of motion from my rotator cuff surgery, Jane, Alicia, and Colleen were always encouraging and motivating me to continue to do my best. I'm so glad I chose PPT in Newton, MA. Thanks!read more

I’ve had PT three times in my life and this was, by far, my best experience. Not only did I recover from an injury, I learned a lot which is helping me on my health and fitness journey. Jane K deserves a special shout out for leading the way with my therapy...super knowledgeable, great listener,... and endless positive energy. I’m grateful for the whole team...Tim, Nicole, Tamara, Colleen, Alicia...they all played their part.read more

If I could give Professional PT 10 stars, I would. I recently had the pleasure of working with Alicia for a neck strain that was limiting my ability to be productive at work and get restful sleep. Alicia is not only incredibly skilled, knowledgeable, effective in her treatment, and talented but is... also warm, personable, and truly cares about her patient’s rehabilitation. The combination of physical and manual therapy, had my neck feeling better in under two months. Whenever I had any worries, concerns, or self doubt about if I was ever going to feel better, Alicia would always take the time to listen, reassure, educate, and provide exercises that I could do at home to help aid in my rehab. On top of that, the entire staff including Jane and Colleen are wonderful! The facilities are super clean and safely set up with covid precautions in mind. I truly looked forward to my appointments and couldn’t recommend Alicia and team more to people who are in seek of physical therapy. I would not have felt better without them.read more

High level of expertise and knowledge about functional physiology (and the causes of problems therein).Sophisticated evaluation, including slo-mo gait analysis, and life impact assessment.Therapy regimen emphasized active correction of imbalances in the entire musculo-skeletal chain that underlie... and caused my pathology(versus more passive treatments that sooth the affected area). Felt like treatment was constantly re-assessed rather than being rigidly one size fits all.Tailored home treatment regimen in addition to clinic sessions. This was Introduced gradually, and steadily grew to a very comprehensive program."Bedside" manner matters: professional and personable, compassionate and encouraging. Also, welcoming and friendly receptionist.read more

This was by far the best PT experience I've had. Jane and Tim are both professional and personable experts who made going to PT twice a week...dare I say...enjoyable?? Colleen at the front desk is awesome too. Can't recommend them enough and I'll be back for my inevitable next injury!

My experience at Physical Therapy has been nothing less than excellent. The location in Newton is very convenient, with plenty of parking at the beginning of easy street. I came in for treatment on my neck which resulted from an auto vehicle accident whip lash injury. Scheduling is very easy. I... booked my initial appointment over the phone, but their website is just as simple and easy. Above all this, the place is always spotless clean, well kept, and organized.The program I followed was made by Jane, my Physical Therapist. The program is challenging, efficient, and effective. Colleen, along with the other team of staff, keep the exercise very easy to follow and always provided clear concise instruction or demonstration. My treatment is also coupled with manual therapy. This approach was very effective. As I progressed, the pain and discomforts started disappearing.The level of professionalism here is unmatched, and the hospitality superb. I am forever grateful for what Jane, Colleen, and the rest of the staff has helped me with my recovery. I give this place an eleven out of ten stars.read more

The experience at Professional PT in Newton was beyond my expectations! Nicole and Jane are wonderful: most resourceful, straight-forward, encouraging, and warm! Their assistant Coleen was very helpful, too.I have had mild but persistent pain in lower right leg for the past two years and have... tried some massages and chiropractic sessions to no avail. Per my orthopedic doctor’s suggestion, I came to Professional PT in Newton. To my amazement, with a few simple but very effective suggestions and exercises, my pain disappeared after several sessions! I most highly recommend this place to anyone.read more

Just finished the course of PT with Jane and Nicole - they both are great.Started about a month ago with shoulder pain that woke me up at night.Per friend's recommendation visited this place in Newton and now recommend it to all my friends. These ladies are high level professionals indeed! During... the last session I realized, that I'm not sure which shoulder used to be in pain. Coleen, their assistant, also should be mentioned as part of this amazing team. As I told them when saying Good bye: Now I know where to come with all my PT problems.read more

Bio

My career as a PT started when I had the chance to volunteer at an outpatient clinic in high school. I enjoyed being around new people, learning about their lives, and seeing them reach their goals. It seemed like I knew almost immediately that being a PT was what I wanted to do. From there I pursued my degree in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College and have been working as a PT ever since.
