    Slightly OT: PT Recommendations?

    Hi All,

    First time posting here but I figured it was worth a shot. I had a little too much fun on my bike this past week and ended up OTB-ing into a rock and "destabilizing" (probably dislocating) my shoulder. I am supposed to try PT, and I figured some folks around here might have had similar experiences and may be able to recommend a good PT in the Boston-Framingham/Natick-Foxboro triangle.

    Thanks in advance!

    I dislocated my shoulder and tore the rotator cuff. Had surgery to repair it. I live in Salem so can't recommend someone close to you.

    But I can say stick with it when you start. I was back on the bike in about six weeks. At first I could barely lift my arm. I progressed quickly. The exercises they had me do were miraculous.

    When my gf hurt her back snowboarding she had PT at Cambridge Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. It's on Cambridge St. Not sure if that's close enough to Boston for you. She had good results and was satisfied with her experience there.

    I also have friends who went to Sports and Physical Therapy Associates in Kendall Square in Cambridge. Both had good things to say about their experiences there as well.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    I had PT at Proex, they have several locations and the PT seemed pretty decent.
    They also have a pretty good sports PT department at mass general.
    I also had a shoulder injury and highly recommend the sports medicine center at Mass general (I saw Dr Asnis)

    I hurt my rotator cuff last year skiing and then hurt the other shoulder about a month ago. I saw a shoulder specialist at Mass General both times and got PT near my apartment in Boston. PT is worth it and your best bet for a full recovery.
