“I cannot say enough positive things about my wonderful experience at HD Physical Therapy!

I am pretty physically active, and had injured my neck during a workout at the gym. After living with the pain for about a year, and having tried to work on healing and stretching the injury on my own, I had started to get nervous that the pain would never go away. I looked up all of the physical therapy offices in my area, and just picked one based on convenience for my commute. Looking back on the three months of therapy I had at HDPT, I could not have made a better choice. The atmosphere there is great, as each staff member’s personality helps to contribute to a therapy environment that feels 100% professional, encouraging, and progressive each week, while not feeling like it is overly clinical. I looked forward to going to treatment each week, because I knew that each staff member who would work with me that day had fully assessed my injury complaints and physical progress up to that weekly visit, and would develop a therapy session per visit that would force my body to adapt as was needed in order to help work out and relieve the pain of my injury. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and motivated, and I felt like the personalized attention that I received during each session helped me to walk away feeling like I had both a better understanding of what had caused my injury, as well as a better understanding of how the therapy was treating it. They’ve improved body mechanics issues that I was never aware I had problems with, and my neck feels great.

Glenn, Ed, Robbie, Christine, Svet, Sean and Becca made me feel comfortable and welcome from the first day I walked in until my very last session, and I can say without a doubt that I’m walking away from HDPT with a more profound respect for how physical therapy can benefit someone active like me, when an injury seems like it will never go away. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys!”

Allison, Saugus, MA

“If you live, work, or play ANYWHERE near Wakefield or Burlington, and are in need of physical therapy, you would be CRAZY to go ANYWHERE else!! This is a place I can not say enough about. The atmosphere is very upbeat and friendly ALWAYS. The staff are all extremely helpful and knowledgeable, each therapist brings something unique and helpful to the table. I have had several different PT’s work on me for my neck from an accident, and I have been very satisfied every time. Being in pain is the worst, and it can make you grumpy, depressed, just overall unhappy! The staff at HDPT goes above and beyond to make individuals feel better not just on the outside, but on the inside as well. Its hard to leave there without a smile on, the attitudes are very upbeat and there is a cohesiveness that makes you feel you are truly in the hands of people who CARE. You wont hear a negative comment about this place, everyone is great and they are there to get you UP AND BACK TO YOUR BEST SELF AGAIN!”

Jennifer, Peabody, MA

“I sprained my ankle hiking and found myself frantically searching for a local physical therapist. I did a quick google search and HDPT was able to see me for an evaluation the same day I called! Great service! When you are hurt, you feel like you will never get back to doing the things you love. Working with the excellent staff at HDPT, I was back on my feet in no time! Ironically, I twisted the same ankle a year later! I was glad to see the staff again at HDPT but feeling even more frustrated with a re-injury. Not only did Robbie and the staff help me recover a second time but I ended up stronger than ever. I learned new exercises and stretches to get healthy and stay healthy! In fact I completed my first 1/2 marathon, and I have signed up for the Boston Marathon! HDPT is professional, clean, and knowledgeable. Each staff member at HDPT sincerely cares about their patients and invests in the health and recovery of each and every one.”

Sarah, Melrose, MA

“The service here is outstanding!! I have been to Glenn, Ed, Svet and Robbie and they are all amazing. I go at 7am and I am NOT a morning person. But I bounce out of bed to go to my PT session. I love my experience so much that I sent my grandma here. She is doing so well! Clean, bright and friendly. This is your go to PT place.Ample parking and flexible hours.”

Douglas, Middleton, MA

“This was my second time being a patient at HDPT and just like my first visit things went great! Awesome, knowledgeable, friendly staff that do their job well! If you are in need of physical therapy I would highly recommend this facility.”

Bella, Woburn, MA

“I love coming here, the owners are extremely knowledgeable and truly concerned about your issues. Great music, social convo, just a good all around atmosphere. Very clean. I highly recommend this place, they seriously know their stuff and will accommodate anyway possible. I always feel terrific after they worked on my back. 5+ stars. Thanks guys!!”

Joyce, Wakefield, MA

“All physical therapy is NOT the same. I have had many experiences with various PT over the years. I can honestly say that HDPT was the best experience. Glenn & Ed are professional, experiences and compassionate. They are dedicated to helping people. This is not just a ‘job’ to them – you matter to them. They take the time to listen to what you have to say about your problem and how it effects your life. Then, using their extensive education and experience, they develop a creative, yet effective plan of treatment. They will also discuss your long term goals. By trusting their knowledge and experience, I reached my goal and it changed my life.”

Gabrielle, Melrose, MA

“The energy at HDPT is so positive! I appreciate how they maintain a professional and easygoing atmosphere that is balanced with warmth and humor. I looked forward to the therapy sessions because not only would I have less pain, I was sure to have some laughs along the way.”

Robin, Reading, MA

“Simply put, this PT is different from all the others. They are devoted professionals that are creative with their treatment plans. Their expert manual skills, beautiful facility and extensive machinery/equipment are all outstanding. Also, they care! The whole experience was fun because of their personalities and styles. I will recommend HDPT to everyone I know, they really helped me!”

Jamie, Danvers, MA

“After suffering from debilitating migraines for 10 years, I thought I’d tried everything. I’ve done diets, acupuncture, taken dozens of medications and found minimal relief until I discovered that this was one of Glenn’s many talents. I arrived at HDPT with a severe migraine that included blurred vision. Glenn treated my neck and I stood up a new person. Immediate relief! I continue to be amazed and grateful.”

Gail, Lynnfield, MA

“4 years ago I had my ankle replaced and had PT. It did not work. My MD suggested I try again; I was not enthusiastic. He recommended HDPT. It turned out to be the best thing I could have done! When I came my ankle was swollen, I was in pain every step I took, I had no range of motion & going down stairs was a nightmare. HD turned this all around. I can now walk without pain, my ankle is no longer swollen, I can go down stairs and it’s amazing how much range of motion I have now. They did an amazing job, I can’t recommend them highly enough! They know what they are doing & they do a great job!”

Maureen, Stoneham, MA

“I am very pleased with the excellent care I received at HDPT. Glenn immediately diagnosed my problems and implemented the correct regimen which got me out of pain and back on track. They all were extremely accommodating and flexible with the scheduling of my appointments and really went out of their way for me. I found my rehab experience to be awesome!”

Dustin, Salem, MA

“About three years ago I injured my knee playing racquetball. My knee hurt so much I was uncomfortable watching TV so the thought of running was out of the question. I am an avid runner and have been since high school but because of the pain, I had pretty much accepted the fact that I was no longer going to be able to do what I loved. After a couple weeks of frustration I was just about to see an orthopedic surgeon when a friend of mine suggested I see Glenn. My buddy swore by him. I took his advice and made an appointment. Glenn was professional but easy to talk to and understood exactly what I was referring to when describing my pain. As soon as we started working together I could tell he knew what he was doing. Within weeks I was feeling significantly better. And now I am back to running 10-15 miles a week.

Roughly ten years ago I had rotator cuff surgery. Over time it would act up here and there but I would always get over the aches and pains. Last year my shoulder really took a turn for the worse. Simple things like buckling my seatbelt or picking up my laptop on the passenger seat were ridiculously painful – almost impossible due to lack of strength. I stopped doing a lot of the activities I enjoy. To this day I don’t know why I waited for the discomfort to get so bad before calling Glenn. Once again he came to the rescue. Within a month or so I started surfing and swimming again.

In the world of physical therapy Glenn is the best in the business. He understands exactly what is needed to not only make his patients feel comfortable but to provide them with the ability to lead active lives. I see Glenn for every injury and can’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks for fixing me.”

Alex, Danvers, MA

“I went to Glenn with a sore knee that was continually flaring up when I skied. With just a few simple tests, Glenn quickly diagnosed my injury and developed a program to correct the issue. Within a couple of months I was pain free and back on the hill. Glenn is truly a master at his craft!”

Jessica, Woburn, MA

“I’d never experienced any sort of back pain until I woke up one morning with a sharp pain in my lower back. I panicked because I have two young boys to take care of, one of them being a cranky, chubby 5 month old who wanted to be held constantly. After 20 minutes with Glenn I felt a marked improvement and I was back to normal in a day or two, after doing the stretches he’d shown me. I’m so grateful to HDPT for getting me back on my feet so quickly! Glenn’s a miracle worker!”

Joyce, Everett, MA

“I have been in pain for many years now with Spinal Stenosis and Achilles Tendonitis. I have gone to Glenn for quite a few years now on and off and he has done nothing but help me with my pain. He is awesome and I recommend him 100% to anyone who is trying to live a normal life without pain. He “does” the job 100%.”

Tara, Braintree, MA

“About five years ago I injured my knee exercising. It was so painful I could barely put any pressure on it without experiencing tremendous pain. After just a few sessions at HD, I was up and running again! The best part is I’ve continued to run & exercise and it hasn’t bothered me since. They are amazing.”

Kevin, Swampscott, MA

“I was treated by Glenn for neck pain, back pain and whiplash after a car accident. The treatment I received led to an immediate decrease in pain and stiffness and made my neck and back as good as new.”

Deb, Medford, MA

“I recently began a new exercise regimen that included running. I started slow, and was working up to my goal of 3 miles when a knee injury stopped me in my tracks. I had a bucket tear of cartilage in my previously reconstructed right knee. The pain was excruciating and I was quickly scheduled for an arthroscopy. My recovery included several weeks of physical therapy with Glenn. Not only did he help me to regain strength and stability in my now twice surgically repaired knee, he also gave me some stretching advice that has saved me from nagging shin splints that would often inhibit my running. Thanks to Glenn’s expertise, I just completed my second half marathon! Running is now a major part of my life, a very important one, that would not be possible if not for the care Glenn provided!”

Danielle, Melrose, MA

“I am a ballet dancer and have been seeing Glenn for quite sometime, for many different injuries. I’ve had surgeries that I thought would be career ending, yet Glenn has worked wonders. He is committed to helping you in anyway that he can. Needless to say, I am back dancing and feeling strong thanks to him. Glenn is the man! You honestly wouldn’t be able to find a better physical therapist!”

Jennifer, Nashua, NH

“I have been dealing with knee pain for quite awhile. I was having difficulty getting up and down stairs at the age of 36! After being fed up, I decided to get help and that is when I became a patient of HDPT. After only 2 visits, I found that I was able to go up and down stairs a bit smoother and with less pain. I still have more work to do but with feeling results as early as 2 visits I know that I am on the path to recovery.”
