Patient Testimonials

  • After hip replacement surgery, I went to Sports and Ortho for Physical therapy. I must say the staff worked me hard, but they did a great job in assisting me back to normal day to day living. Still unable to run or tie my shoe yet, but that takes a little more time. I am able to walk long distances, squat, climb stairs and get fully dressed without pain or assistance.
    Ms. Olivia, Ms. Lauren, Ms. Dana, Ms. Pam, Ms. Lori, Mr. Tim and Mr. CJ, I owe you guys and gals the world! You’re the BEST!
    I sincerely would like to thank you all for your help. THANK YOU!!

    K Nevels

  • Starting therapy I wasn’t able to extend my left arm straight or reach my left arm behind my back. Had left elbow and shoulder surgery. Now I have full range of motion thanks to Travis, Christy, Dana, CJ, Pam, Lauren and Tim. Staff was excellent, and I can see why medical recommended this ortho office. Very knowledgeable. Back to normal. Thank you to everyone who helped

    R Ray

  • Before coming to Sports and Ortho, I had limited mobility and range of motion in my shoulder. After my sessions, my range of motion was drastically increased and my mobility was back at where it was before my injury. Ike did an incredible of pointing out where any pain I had was originating, and then working to remove it.

    Andy L

  • Initially limited movement and tenderness in right knee. Exercise, massage and stretches have increased mobility in right knee. Therapist Olivia was professional and communicated clearly as to reasons for exercises to increase mobility in affected areas which need attention.

    Francis H

  • When I came to Sports and Ortho, the pain in my left shoulder was 8/10. The staff was special in that they explained every exercise and why it was helping. Olivia was exceptionally patient when my pain continued until the final week. She was professional in her explanations. Tim, CJ and Pam were helpful in demonstrating proper technique. It was fun working with you guys! Thank you!

    Lois M

  • When I walked in your door 9 weeks ago I was in chronic pain and walking with the aide of a cane. My entire left side from my waist to my knee hurt badly, as did my right hip. Jessica assessed my disability and set out a plan to rehabilitate me. I worked out at home also under her recommendation and knowledge. The gradual change in mobility and stability has been remarkable. I can’t thank the entire staff enough for their friendliness and thoughtfulness. Jessica is a wonderful, caring therapist. I was also impressed with Tim and Pam who guided me through Jessica’s plan. When needed, Dana and Lauren helped me also. Your staff is a wonderful testament to the success of Sports and Ortho. I was greeted and encouraged each session by a friendly office staff. I loved coming here and getting well. Thank you!

    Janet J

  • Knee replacement – I can now walk again! Staff was very kind and efficient. Pam kept our spirits up while being strict. Lauren was very nice and encouraging. All staff very friendly.

    Margaret M

  • Very positive experience. Lori helped with my schedule changes. Lauren was my main therapist but all staff and techs were very helpful. Everyone made sure I did all exercises correctly. They would just pass by and show me what I was doing wrong and praised me for what I did correctly. Would recommend this facility to family and friends. THANKS EVERYONE FOR A VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. I feel strong and empowered.

    Sarah S

  • I want to thank my therapist Lauren for the care I was given. I am able to move about without severe pain. I can do most of my activities without pain. My therapist was very professional and patient with me. Pam was very helpful also.

    Florence S

  • I came to Sports and Ortho with very little use of my right arm due to a broken clavicle. After going over various stretches and weight training with Olivia and help from Stacey, Tim, Pam, and Travis, I feel like I have full use of my right arm after 4 weeks of therapy. I was sent home with different stretches to continue at home. I would definitely recommend Sports and Ortho in Beverly.

    Tom D

  • I can’t say enough good things about the clinic. The whole approach is different than prior clinics I attended. The therapists care, listen, and spend a LOT of time on the manual/massage work. They think outside the box and it yielded results. The whole staff is fantastic and they were always helpful to schedule appointments that fit my schedule. HIGHLY recommended and very satisfied.

    Yael S

  • Prior to coming here, I had leg and hip weakness and very limited flexibility due to my pre-op condition. Coming here prior to surgery, helped me to be stronger going into surgery and shortened the recovery time. As of today, I have been without any pain for more than 2 months I believe. Travis never once did not believe in my ability to heal. He answered all of my questions honestly and sought out all the answers he did not have at the time. Dana reminded me that road was going to be neither flat nor straight but that she, along with everyone else, was interested in my healing. Everyone has been consistently kind , attentive, patient and genuinely engaged in making sure that I did well.

    I have been to many of these types of places. What makes you unique is that the people that are here are skilled at what they do, and they really love their work. That care translates to the patients. While I understand that my mobility has been greatly impacted by the surgery, the treatment that I have received here has been no less impactful. I will tell everyone I meet that this is the place to come to for any rehab therapy that they are in need of. From the moment you are greeted at the front desk from the time you leave, everyone is rooting for your success and healing. You have an amazing team here! Thank you to everyone who has cared enough to want not just my physical healing but has helped me to regain my mobility and confidence. Thank you so very, very much.

    Travis, Dana, Pam, Stacey, Jessica, Tim, the ladies at the front desk – All of these people worked with me either periodically or daily. Pam and Tim especially were extra kind!

    Belinda B

  • I reached out to Pam D for a physical therapy reference. She directed me to the Beverly facility. I presented with pain under my left arm that radiated into my left tricep. I also had pain in the front of the shoulder. I had weakness in this area and limited mobility. I also had a fractured left index finger. My therapist Lauren evaluated my shoulder and found that my problem appeared to be with the scapula. I was given exercises to loosen my hips and hamstrings which began to relax to pulling on my neck and back. I found Lauren very knowledgeable, personable and compassionate. She has improved my flexibility tremendously. The pain I presented with is almost nonexistent. If I continue on this course she has set for me, I should remain relatively pain free. I also had the opportunity to work with Pam, Tim and Stacey.

    Robin M

  • I came to Sports and Ortho after surgery on my shoulder with limited movement and strength in my arm. With several sessions, I know have much better motion and strength. They were able to show me exercise to get my motion and strength back. Personnel at Sports and Ortho were very professional and dedicated to helping me.

    Jeff M

  • I saw two doctors and tried a month of “self help” exercises before going to Sports and Ortho Beverly. No luck. After seeing Lauren, Jess, Tim and others for four weeks, I went from not being able to squat, kneel or bend to returning to normal activities as well as a normal exercise routine. Thanks!

    Ryan J

  • I have had a problem with piriformis syndrome for the past 3 years. I have been through PT twice – Once with ATI and then with Athletico. I had my doubts when getting another script from my doctor telling me I needed PT. The first time I came here, I was pleasantly surprised. Lauren listened to what I had to say and examined me thoroughly. Thanks to my physical therapist, Lauren, and the other Sports and Ortho staff, I am not longer off balance when I walk and am starting to run again!

    Kimberly L

  • Initially coming to Sports and Ortho due to a partial Achilles tear (work related), I could barely stretch without pain. In 3 months, I was able to return to work. Caitlyn did most of my PT but Ronna, Sam and Ike also helped. I was ready to return to full duty after 84 days, after being told 4-6 months off. Most other PT places are 45 minutes appointments. I healed faster due to the two hour appointments, manual manipulations and soft tissue work. The PTs here seem to really love their jobs.

    Dave E

  • When I came into Sports and Ortho, I could barely walk and rotate my knee. If it wasn’t for the entire staff, my progress and recovery would not have went so smooth. Everyone was very approachable, helpful and showed a lot of patience. It will be a bitter sweet moment ending my therapy, but they have prepared me to return to work with confidence.

    Trvon T

  • I came to Sports and Ortho barely able to walk after I sprained my left ankle. I had extensive pain, swelling, and discomfort. Christy was my main therapist. She assured me I would be back to myself, and she was right. From the massages, exercises, and all of her hard work, I’m back. The staff gives thorough instructions and shows exactly what I should do, not only while I’m at the clinic, but at home exercises too. Special thanks to Travis, Tim, Pam and Stacey! I would recommend anyone that needs physical therapy should come here!

    Jocelyn G

  • Thank you Sports and Ortho for helping me alleviate the pain in my foot due to a stress fracture. I am able to walk faster and the stiffness and tightness is gone. I am also able to go back to my regular exercises and able to do the same exercises on my own. In addition, I really like how every therapist knows my name when I arrive. Thank you Lauren, Dana, Tim, Pamela and Stacey for assisting me and making sure that my pain is gone. I sincerely hope that I will not have the same issues in the future, but if I do,  I want to come back here.

    Vera T

  • Prior to coming to Sports and Ortho, I walked with a limp because of the Achilles tendonitis. I had swelling that reduced a lot, and I could walk and stretch much better after therapy. My limping has stopped. Thank you Lauren, Pam, Tim and Dana! They were all great and so helpful. I would gladly recommend them for therapy.

    Andrea B

  • Before starting therapy for a neck/spine issue, I had been in constant discomfort and pain. After therapy, I feel I can now do all daily living with no discomfort. I would like to thank all of the staff at Sports and Ortho for their care and concern with my care. All the way from reception, therapists and techs. Concerned, helpful and caring. Thanks!

    Charles H

  • I came in on my own with an Achilles issue, suspected tendonitis. Id been doing home self care and come to a point where nothing was improving.  Lauren has helped bring me back to a point where I can walk with little to no discomfort, which is a huge improvement. I am confident to try my old activities again, where before I wouldn’t have even thought to attempt. The point I am now, allows for maintenance and continued home care. I feel more confident to get in the gym again, as well as my active lifestyle of running, dancing and aerobic type workouts.

    Antoinette J

  • All the staff at Sports and Ortho are great. I came in with lower back pain for work. I could not lift any window sill without pain. Today I lifted 130 pounds with no pain. Jessica, Dana, Tim, Stacy and Pam are true pros. I have hurt my back in the past and went to a different PT place and they were not as good as Sports and Ortho.

    Michael N

  • My experience at Sports and Ortho was totally awesome. Travis and Dana were very thorough in the questions they asked and the physical assessments. The thumb massage brought it back to normal function without all the previous pain. I learned so many different exercises that not only strengthened my healed wrist, but also my whole body. I can truly say they worked me out! Tim and Pam, the technicians, were always helpful, patient and kind and helped with a sense of humor. Would recommend S&O to anyone

    Lorna S

  • I came to the Sports and Ortho on 109th and Western after an on duty accident that left me with a sprained ankle. Before coming, I could not walk on the heel of my left foot and could not stand the pressure of any shoe on that foot. With only six visits, I left able to walk as I did before my accident, wearing shoes as before, and able to return to work without any pain. Jessica, Pam and Stacey were the daily team, and they were phenomenal. They were very attentive to my pain and my growth. They made sure I kept up with the daily homework to ensure I continued to progress. It felt like I was more than a paycheck and they genuinely care that I got back to my normal. Although I may have been one person’s patient/client, if I was done with an exercise and my therapist was busy with another client, someone would quickly assign me from my chart. Their teamwork made for a better environment. If I ever need PT again, I will definitely be back.

    W Pickens

  • This is the second time that I have had PT at this location. The first time in 2013 after a torn meniscus, and again in 2019 after TKR. The care here is amazing. Both the therapists and the aides are very helpful and take the time to explain how to do exercises and how a small change in how you do it makes a big difference. The other thing that makes Sports and Ortho special, is that they treat the whole body not just one joint.

    Linda B

  • Before physical therapy, I had bad pain in my right foot almost every day. Thanks to all of the staff members, now I have very little pain.

    Lemon G

  • I was referred to the facility by a close friend and neighbor who spoke very highly of his experience. I needed rehab after total replacement of my left hip. My experience has been excellent. Most importantly, effective in getting back to normal. Along the way, they were extremely friendly, very professional, and very personable. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to the facility. Big shout out to Christy, Dana, Tim, Jess, Pam and Stacey! They worked great as a team, and I will miss their smiling faces!

    William H

  • I had Travis and Dana who were both wonderful and caring. They were able to really fix my problem. I do have to say that everyone was involved with my care. They all work so well together to make sure the clients are cared for. I was impressed and appreciated all of the help. Great job and very nice people

    Darlene S

  • Before I started therapy, I could not get a good night’s  sleep, could not lie or sleep on my sides, had to put a pillow between my legs to get some relief, was hard to get in and out of bed, could not go up and down steps without holding onto a railing, had to use a cane to do long walking, had to take my time getting out of the car and could only do light house work. NOW I can do ALL of the above with ease. My therapist was wonderful. I will always request him. The whole crew is great. Keep up the good work Travis. You are great. “My guy”

    Virginia A

  • I can now walk longer with less discomfort. Staff member in charge of my rehab was Lauren. She is most helpful, efficient and encouraging. All of the staff is very polite and helpful.

    Margaret M

  • Before I came to Sports and Ortho, I had pain in my left shoulder and numbness in my arm. I am a painter/engineer, and I was not able to do my job without pain or numbness. Thanks to Lauren and her team Stacy, Tim and Pam for showing me proper way to stretch – it makes a huge difference when you’re doing them the right way. Lauren was fabulous. She massaged all the knots and tension out of me. I would recommend this place to everyone. It is a five star plus operation. Thanks for everything. PS – can’t wait to play golf.

    Joseph D

  • Sports and Ortho is a great place to go for physical therapy. I was limited in climbing stairs, bending and walking long distances. Sports and Ortho’s therapies allowed me to work out the stiffness in my muscles and pain in my neck, legs and lower back. With continued therapies at home, I am able to resume my daily activities. I am extremely satisfied with the end result and Lauren (therapist) was fantastic. Thank you!

    Javier Z

  • Great knowledge, equipment, and vibes at Sports & Ortho. It’s my second time here and if I ever need another PT clinic, I’m going back a third time.

    Dan M.

  • Thank You Sports and Ortho! Once again you made my broken down body strong again. Thank you Caitlin for all you have done. Your your knowledge and skills go beyond comprehension… Thanks to Chrissy and Sam as well, you guys are awesome and Chrissy’s Dry Needling is a Godsend!

    Thomas H.

  • When I first started therapy I was in moderate pain. Having physical therapy here at Beverly helped me get backed to where I was. I can do day-to-day activities pain-free. I also learned how important stretching is thanks to Jessica. Her and Tim made me feel comfortable with all the stretches. Overall, Sports & Ortho provided great customer service!

    Howard J.

  • My knee was  in pain before surgery. Christy showed me very helpful stretching techniques before surgery and after. Christy and the rest of the staff are outstanding. I will recommend Sports & Ortho to everyone I know!

    William S.

  • I had stiffness in my calf and ankle area. I feel a lot better than when I first came. The biggest benefit for me was learning numerous ways to exercise certain areas pertaining to my problem. The best benefit is once I learned these exercises, I could do them on my own at home. Jessica & Dana are the best and I would recommend them.

    Geraldine W.

  • Before I came to Sports & Ortho, I wasn’t able to put on my shoes & socks, bend my knee to my chest, or pickup objects on the floor. Walking was difficult without a cane and it was difficult to get out of bed easily. Now, thanks to my professionals, I’m able to live life to the fullest! Thanks to Christy & Dana for all your help. Love you guys!

    Elaine G.

  • “Wow! What a great place. I’ve been to 2 different Physical Therapists before I found Sports Ortho and the experiences were all very very different. At Sports Ortho  you really get the bang for your buck. Each session is 2 hours long. Which includes soft tissue massages, cardiovascular work, extensive stretching, and a more focused and intensive treatment that is based on your performance and your input.  At Sports & Ortho every time you go there it is different. They focus on your weakness and give you well rounded treatment.

    I am very very happy to say that after 10+ years of chronic back problems that I am now running, lifting and I’m pain free. I am certain it is because of the awesome direction of Dahlia the owner. Also the therapists I’ve had- Caitlin and EK love their job. They love what they do for a living, and it shows in their work and their attitude. I can’t say enough good things about Sports Ortho. This place is a small business where you can get focused treatment by people that genuinely want you to get better. Highly recommended.”

    Jim A.

  • “Cash DeWitt is by far the best physical therapist you could wish for. Being an internist I’m aware of a medical personnel’s knowledge and how difficult it is to be outstanding in our current system. He and Kevin – a superb assistant – provide a welcoming friendly clean and inviting place to improve physical problems. Unlike others, Cash DeWitt does hands on, one to one therapy, with each and all of his patients. He is remarkably competent with advanced degree and training in movement – kinesiology. This one on one, generous non-rushed therapy sessions and some mini pain and clear homework instructions gets results. My highest recommendation, far better than other PT anywhere!!”

    Sheldon E.

  • “I would highly recommend Sports & Ortho to anyone in need of PT! The whole staff is so welcoming and accommodating. I was very impressed from the start. Cash gave a very thorough assessment during the first exam and he took the time to explain everything that was going on. From then on it was several weeks of therapy, where Cash did everything he could to improve my injury. He goes above and beyond! It’s a fun group of people in the office which makes for an enjoyable time during every session.”

    Rachel J

  • “Sports and Ortho has given wonderful care with kind and knowledgeable therapists. My therapist Travis was certainly very wonderful. Within 6 weeks, a very messed up foot became perfectly usable like it was before. I could not be happier with this quality care!”

    Luke M

  • “Cash and Kevin were amazing!  They always answered all of my questions, no matter how many times I asked. They were beyond patient with me. They both helped me gain confidence in my recovery in an encouraging and open environment. These guys and magical! This experience was life changing!”

    Justus R.

  • My experience with Cash was great. I’m still shocked on how much this guy knows. I train jiu jitsu all the time and had problems with my shoulder. After getting physical therapy with with Sports ortho I was able to get back to training thanks to Cash Dewitt. Also there were all kinds of age groups and people with different issues. He’ll pin point and custom your work outs for you so that you can get right back on track or what ever your goals might be.

    Paul P.

  • “Payal is an excellent PT and has such knowledge and dedication. I was very fortunate to have found her. Very professional at the same time, very personable! I would recommend her to everyone! Thanks Payal!”

    Seoun-Suk L.

  • “My experience at Sports & Ortho has been not only a successful experience but also a very inspirational one. Christy and her assistants not only showed me tools I needed in order to reach my recovery but they gave me confidence I needed to get there. For 3 months a few times a week with Christy and Touley her assistant, made me get over my fears and pushed me to believe in myself and continued to go above and beyong my expectations. They all were a great team and I felt positive energy every time I was  there. Christy Galardi was so precise and yet compassionate with her PT techniques.I cant recommend her enough!  In fact my husband is now a patient here. Thank you for moving me from crutches and afraid to jogging and running.”
    Claudette P.

  • “I was nervous returning to duty after my C-section and the staff reassured me and worked with me and made me make my goals. I would definitely refer friends, coworkers, and family to sports & ortho and Caitlin.”
    Jeanette M

  • When I started with Travis I was extremely limited in all aspects of walking, balance, and endurance. With his incomparable techniques, exercises, massages, and never ending support, My life has improved with strength and knowledge of great therapy and exercises. Thank you Travis for your skill, patience, and knowledge. P.S. he’s cute too!

  • Payal Korde was an excellent physical therapist who went above and beyond what I expected. Lisa at front desk was also wonderful.

    Margaret N.

  • Cash and the rest of the staff here are great! Very kind and welcoming and took a “whole body” approach that I appreciated. My neck and arm pain has gone from being a major hindrance to my life to being negligible. Thanks, guys!!

    Erika O.

  • I have been so pleased with the service I received at Sports and Ortho. I don’t usually do reviews, but that I thought I would write this one. About a year ago my knee starting hurting and I couldn’t even run a half mile without intense pain in my knee. After only 5 sessions we started to notice progress as I could go up to a mile without pain. By my 10th session, I was running 3 miles without any pain, which is more than I had been able to do for more than a year.

    They taught me some great stretches and strengthening exercises, which they really tailored to my current abilities and goals. Each day with them I received individual attention and truly enjoyed the time I got to spend with these wonderful people each day. You can tell that their job is more than just a job to them.

    Thanks Lindsay, Victoria, and Cash. (I’m looking forward to running a 5k with my fiancé in the near future!)

    Steven D.

  • I think they do a great job. I came here for help with posture and hip pain and got good results on both. Cash is an excellent physical therapist. He really listens and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. Eric and Brennan were also excellent. All 3 spent a lot of time with me and made sure I did the exercises properly. They were all truly interested in my improvement and cared about me as a person. It is a very pleasant and accommodating place. I went home with an exercise program (complete with photos) that I can do at home. I highly recommend this location to anyone in need of physical therapy.

    Stephanie Y.

  • I had attended Sport & Ortho for an injury screen evaluation regarding a hip injury, and while ultimately, I opted for a different provider closer to my office (thinking convenience is key!), I was thoroughly impressed with Cash. He invested more time in a screen than I thought possible, while revealing a sound level of expertise and genuine concern/interest in my injury and resolving it. Following the screen, I voiced concerns over potentially working with techs & the multiple-patient model (it’s never been a favorite business model of mine). Not only did Cash respond to my email immediately, but his response was again, like his screen, so unbelievably thorough and sincere. He was open to feedback and was so understanding when, after all these engagements, I went with a different provider (and I learned my lesson, convenience might not outweigh quality after all..). I hope I’m not injured again, but if so, I’d run(!) back to Cash!

    My husband, though, has seen Cash regularly following surgeries on both his rib and toe. Cash has not only provided relief and strength to those areas, he’s graciously worked to help my husband’s (unrelated) knee pain, believing in both a holistic approach as well as the reality that everyone should be able to run pain free. This sort of genuine care and interest – as well as passion his work – is deeply appreciated as a patient.

    Kelly F.

  • Only been here a few months, wasn’t expecting much as I hate meeting new people in this type of environment. However, I was surprisingly impressed. I came in with carpal tunnel syndrome, and shoulder issues, and i hardly feel the carpal tunnel in my wrists anymore. My shoulder, I am currently seeing Caitlyn who knows so much about treating my type of injury. She also does dry-needling which has helped a whole lot!!! The aides that help the therapists are so knowledgeable on the exercises which helps to condition at your best. I definitely feel like I am at the right place. Also, the hands on is the longest I’ve ever had, and I’ve been to three other places before this PT.

    Angelica G.

  • Last year, I injured my knee 6 weeks before the Chicago Marathon (also had NYC lined up after) and my doctor gave me the go to see a PT with no guarantee of whether I’ll be able to run pain free or finish either one of the marathons at all. A friend recommended Sports and Ortho and my only regret is not coming here sooner! The facility is clean, location is convenient and easy to find, and the staff–they’ve always been so above and beyond with everything. Cash DeWitt was my PT at the time–very knowledgeable and a running expert. I went in at least 2-3 times a week and followed every single advise and take home exercises. Not only did my knee got better, my running form improved as well. I was able to get thru both Chicago (with a new personal best) and NYC pain free. I’m sure they treat every athlete, but if you’re a runner, you won’t regret coming here.

    Hanna O.

  • Dahlia Fahmy (Sports and Ortho PT and Sports Medicine) is the best – 5 Stars! She is a professional who is very knowledgable and helped me with my back pain. She and her staff are up to date on all the different methods (manual manipulation, exercises that concentrated on my specific back pain, stretching) for controlling the pain. The facility has a qualified, friendly staff who also stepped in when needed. Each week I learn more exercises, how they help and the correct way to do them.

    I was so impressed with Dahlia and the way PT was done. So different than what I was expecting. I felt so much better and learned so much that I did 22 sessions with her last year. I’m back again this year for some help with a new pain and again have learned so much more. If I had my way, I would see her twice a week, every week. I highly recommend Dahlia you will not be disappointed.

    Charmaine L.

  • I’ve been coming to this location to see the physical therapist, Cash, for knee pain from running. Cash has done an amazing job helping me rid my knees of the pain I’ve had, and he does so with a smile on his face and an eagerness to get me back on my feet.

    Not only is he great to work with and extremely knowledgeable, but he is able to efficiently have multiple patients with appointments at once, and still give everyone the proper attention that is needed.

    I highly recommend visiting this location for a screening, and definitely will continue to come to Cash in the future if need be.
