Devin C: Overcame back pain and injury.

Very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and highly skilled therapist. I have been working with Brett for over 3 years now. I first started working with Brett for personal training. After a back injury I started working with him as my physical therapist. I am always impressed and satisfied with services received; he takes the time to explain the causes of symptoms and pains and explains what needs to get worked on, why and how to safely go about it. My back pain is much more controllable and less frequent and I am much stronger than before we started working together. I would recommend anyone suffering from joint pain, an injury, or looking to step up his or her training gives Barbell Therapy a call.

Charles S: Overcame back pain and injury.

I had suffered a herniated/bulging disk, and it created even issues walking. I was determined not to have surgery, and after explaining and consulting with him – Brett agreed. He and I met, close to a dozen times, working on muscle activation work, and how to stay active, while treating the disk, and even aiding in the bulge to be ‘pulled in’. I never had the surgery and years later, I still give Brett the lion share of the credit. I constantly refer to him in conversation, regardless of whether it’s for massage, Grastoning, recovery, strengthening a weakness, or techniques on Olympic or Powerlifting. And I proudly still wear my Barbell Therapy shirt occasionally to the gym.. because now, 6+ years later, I have been relatively, 98+% pain free…

Jessica B: Overcame severe back pain.

I highly recommend Brett for physical therapy work! I knew he was the person I needed to go to when I started experiencing severe back pain a month out from my first USAPL meet (regionals)… long story short, with a slew of personal stress, alongside gym fatigue, I was in a pickle and didn’t know what to do. I knew Brett has worked with other lifters in the past and got them working again so that they could compete, and so he was my first option. I ended up seeing Brett twice a week for two and a half weeks leading up to the meet, and I no longer had back pain! Brett is incredibly easy to work with and schedule with, and he takes out of network insurance, so I was able to pay for the sessions with my insurance card…

Alexandra S: Overcame hip pain.

Having Brett as a coach, with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy background proved crucial to my training needs as I had come to him with a previous shoulder injury and a left hip that had begun to hurt when I started squatting heavier on my own. Brett was able to give me prehab moves to incorporate in my training to help increase my performance and decrease my pain. Then when I decided to switch up my training, without hesitation, he wrote up a new program according to my aesthetic goals. Definitely hire Brett as a coach as he will definitely be able to help you reach your athletic goals!

Gina: Overcame hip pain.

Would highly recommend, especially for strength athletes that need sport-specific PT. I went to Barbell Therapy for hip pain that had been plaguing me for over a year. I’m a powerlifter and could tell the pain was training-related; I’d tried a different PT clinic but didn’t see much improvement. When I went to Barbell Therapy, Brett was quickly able to identify form issues and muscle imbalances that were contributing to the problem, and gave me the cues I needed to fix my technique as well as corrective stretches/exercises… After working with Brett, I’m finally able to move forward with training without pain.

Brian M: Overcame hip pain.

Brett is a wizard. I went to him for some wrist tenosynovitis and left with a totally different view of how many body behaves. While my tenosynonvitis hasn’t entirely cleared up, I’ve addressed lingering issues with core, hip, and shoulder stability that have drastically altered and improved my weight training. Best part about it is that he will educate you and give you a solid foundation of knowledge to dig in to if your issues crop up again. I would recommend him to anyone looking to fix and understand their body.

Aiden F: Overcame sciatica pain.

I highly recommend Barbell Therapy for physical therapy. Recently I was suffering from pain in my lower spine and I was unable to practice my sport (I am a shot putter), so I looked for options to find relief. My first stop was a chiropractor, which helped for a few days, but then my pain came back even stronger than before. I then decided to go to Brett for a more in depth analysis of the problem and he was able to identify the source of my pain. Not only did he figure out why the pain was occurring, but he gave me corrective exercises that helped me feel like I was playing a role in my recovery. After only a few days my pain was totally gone and I was able to return to practice and then head off to college…

Marco B: Overcame sciatica pain.

I went to Barbell Therapy for some debilitating lower back pain I was experiencing after hurting it deadlifting. He was very thorough researching when the pain started, confirming the problem areas, inspecting my range of motion, pain level, comfort with movements before the session. After working with me for an hour, my back felt significantly better. I could now drive and even exercise without the insurmountable pain I was in. Brett also have me some exercises I could do on my own as a warm up before training or during to keep the tension at bay. At no point did I feel uncomfortable or pressured during my visit.10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Jessica B: Overcame sciatica pain.

I highly recommend Barbell Therapy & Performance for physical therapy work! I have known Brett for almost two years now and knew that he had been coaching and performing the PT work for a slew of lifters in the NE region; given Brett’s knowledge on both powerlifting and weightlifting, as well as his ever-expanding PT work (he’s constantly taking classes on new techniques and trying to learn more), I knew he was the person I needed to go to when I started experiencing severe back pain a month out from my first USAPL meet (regionals)… long story short… I ended up seeing Brett twice a week for two and a half weeks leading up to the meet, and I no longer had back pain!

Brian B: Overcame shoulder pain.

I live in Boston and we mostly worked together remotely for about a year (until my work schedule got too hectic). He helped me put together workout and diet plans to help me achieve my fitness goals, and our regular interactions through email and Skype were very useful for keeping me on track and accountable. Even though I’ve been lifting for many years, I’d never previously hired a trainer and was impressed how a few little adjustments to diet and technique improved my results and made me much less injury-prone.

TJ H: Overcame shoulder injury.

Working with Brett has been fantastic. After a subpar experience working with a multi-location PT Facility I turned to Brett for help, and results/recovery ensued immediately. I’ve been seeing him for a shoulder injury that has severely affected my lifting program – Brett took his time diagnosing the issue and explained it in terms that made it easy to understand. Further, he developed a progressive rehabilitation plan entirely customized to my injury. Best of all, his sessions are 1 on 1 so I don’t have to wait between exercises or work with a different person each time I go.

Daniel P: Overcame shoulder pain.

After dislocating my shoulder I wanted to get back into lifting heavy so I had a consultation with Brett. He set me down and went over my medical history, went through an examination of range of motion and strength. Then he proceeded to show me exercises to ease back into the lifting world and make sure I don’t risk re-injury. It’s been a year since the injury and so far so good. Brett also does training seminars and has a YouTube channel you should subscribe to. Also occasionally Bobby/Brett will bring in there dogs. Deadlifts & dogs? Can you ask for anything better? There is no other gym I would rather train at than SBC. It simply has the best equipment, community and personnel.
