weymouth physical therapyBlue Hills Sorts & Spine Rehabilitation, providing physical therapy in Weymouth, is distinguished for the success of its unique approach to spinal rehabilitation and general orthopedics.

As we like to say, we put the “physical” in physical therapy, because our goal is to identify the cause of your injuries or painful conditions and treat them. Our experienced and skilled team puts their knowledge, compassionate approach and personalized care emphasis to work for you the minute you enter our clinic.

Opened in 2008, the Weymouth facility is a member of The Pinnacle Rehabilitation Network which also operates in Boston, Plymouth and Braintree.

We credit our success with our insistence that we are determined to address the cause of your pain, not just your symptoms. We dismiss quick-fix solutions in favor of long-term solutions that allow you to return to your normal level of activity and optimal quality of life. We don’t want you to have to compromise because of pain, and we will encourage you to keep moving as we solve the issues.

We begin by conducting a thorough biomechanical evaluation that gives us the insight we need to devise an individualized course of treatment.

Your dedicated physical therapist will combine the latest in evidence-based physical therapy treatments with the best “tried and true” methods to help you achieve superior, lasting results. Every step of the way, we’ll provide you with the in-depth knowledge you need to become your own physical therapist and remain pain-free, long after your program has ended.

Our Physical Therapy Services in Weymouth, MA

Spinal Rehabilitation

Blue Hills Sports & Spine Rehabilitation, providing physical therapy services in Weymouth, MA, is distinguished for its unique and effective approach to spinal rehabilitation.

When you suffer from acute or chronic back pain, it is hard to focus on anything else. Every aspect of your quality of life is impacted. When the pain becomes chronic, it is easy to become discouraged and believe that you will never be pain-free again.

At our Weymouth clinic, we have given thousands of back pain sufferers a whole new perspective on life. In fact, many of our patients are surprised when we tell them this fact: The vast majority of people with neck, low back pain and/or sciatica symptoms caused by degenerative disc disease, muscle strain and other spine disorders can be managed successfully—without surgery.

Our approach to physical therapy leads to superior long-term results because we treat the causes, not just the symptoms. Our skilled physical therapists use a proven, research-based course of treatment that includes:

  • Cardiovascular exercise
  • Active and passive stretching
  • Quantitative functional strength training
  • Core stabilization
  • Manual techniques and modalities (when clinically appropriate)

Orthopedics                                                     

Our customized program of physical therapy is successful in helping patients suffering from sprains, strains and fractures, and other orthopedic injuries, to heal faster and recover thoroughly.

Whether your pain comes from injuries incurred in your daily life, your sports and hobbies or your workplace, we will work with you to determine the underlying cause and address the whole picture to prevent injuries from recurring.

Sports Injuries

Whether you are an elite marathoner or a 10- minute miler, a major league pitcher or a weekend warrior, Blue Hills Sports & Spine Rehabilitation treats all types—and all levels—of athletes with the same exceptional level of care.

We understand how hard it is for athletes to stay on the sidelines. That’s why our physical therapists focus on getting you back to your sport faster, but in a way that ensures your injury will not return.

Once we determine the cause of your injury or pain, we use a comprehensive and aggressive biomechanical approach to restore full joint mobility and strength. Because the body is a “kinematic chain,” it’s critical to consider all of the joints around your injury—including wrists, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. By rehabilitating you from the “ground up,” your physical therapy will be more effective in the long run.

We specialize in treating:

  • Youth, adult and active senior athletes
  • Elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle injuries
  • Injuries resulting from running, jumping and throwing

Graston TechniqueR

We believe that every patient should have access to the very best physical therapy techniques. That's why we stay up to speed with the latest clinical research and explore new ways of getting even better results for our patients.

The Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables physical therapists to effectively identify and breakdown scar tissue and mechanical restrictions within soft tissues.

The technique utilizes specially designed steel instruments, combined with stretches and exercises, to achieve superior outcomes. It is used to treat a number of tendon disorders, mobilize scar tissue and reduce edema.

Pre and Post Surgical Care

Patients undergoing joint replacement surgery have been found to recover faster when they have the benefit of physical therapy both before and after their surgery.

We will help you regain your strength and flexibility without risking further damage during the healing process.

Workplace Injuries

We will work with your physician following work-related injuries to help you heal and return to work as quickly as possible. In some cases this will require a work hardening program through which your return to your tasks is gradual as your body regains strength after an injury.

What to expect on your first visit

Please plan to arrive 20 minutes prior to your first appointment. This will allow time for you to register and fill out a medical history form.
