"It was interesting reading all the 5-star reviews, in different words describing the help received. I also had a great experience with Mitch and Jen. My knee is progressing nicely and other persistent aches and pains were never brushed aside; I now have ways to deal with and erase the pain and could not be more pleased."

"Advanced orthopedic and sports therapy is an amazing place with the most professional staff. Not only are the PTs amazing, but the PTAs are also amazing. I was always welcomed with a wide smile and the workers become your friend. They helped me get back to my goals sooner than expected and always helped me in any way. They know the balance between rest and pushing yourself to reach your best self. They can motivate you in the best and nicest way possible. I would highly recommend to anybody, no matter what injury they have."

"Advance Orthopedic has been so helpful. I am truly grateful I had Miss Heather Jones as my Physical therapist too. She’s down to earth. The whole team is approachable and very professional. Thank you so much for doing such a great job! I followed all the instructions and I can see I’m almost fully recovered. Without their tips, advice and help the recovery road would have been a far away dream! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"

"I have been treated for several conditions requiring physical therapy at AOST for the past twenty years. Mitch, Mark and their staff are consummate professionals and always guide me through the recommended exercises. My most recent treatment was for a hip replacement and my recovery was remarkable under their care. I recommend them highly."

"Carly was such a great doctor. Carly explained everything very well and is very knowledgable. Her exercises were specific to your needs and she never had me do anything that made me feel uncomfortable or forced hard exercises until I was ready. Everyone there was so helpful, even the assistants. I am doing my normal routine and going to the gym like normal again. I would recommend her to anyone."

"Although they made me do a lot of things I didn’t want to do, Mark and Jared were truly amazing physical therapists. I owe them the whole world for dealing with my constant complaining and craziness. They are two of the most fun and caring people I have ever worked with and I am extremely thankful for everything they have done. (Jared if you're reading this, stop watching the nature channel, it's lame)"

"Mark worked on my right shoulder for over 2 months. We first analysed what was the issue and what I could do/couldn't. It was a long journey due to my type of work I do everyday. But as time progressed I was recovering due to the exercises we did. He also gave me homework and resist bands to work with at home. From the first visit to the last the whole office welcomed me with open arms."

"I have been here for two separate injuries, several years apart. Both Mark and Mitch were awesome. This most recent time, I was having a hard time moving my left arm/shoulder/neck, even causing me to have a hard time breathing. Mark's well-planned progression of stretching, massage, and exercise got me back to full strength again. Their schedule is flexible, and they are pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. I also like that before leaving on my last day, Mark set me up with a maintenance plan and told me I could use him as a resource any time. 10/10."

"I just finished 4 1/2 months of physical therapy with Mark Manfredi at Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy and couldn't be happier. I had a reverse joint shoulder replacement after years of RA damage and loss of my rotator cuff. Mark was extremely professional and worked with me twice a week in the beginning to regain movement and learn how my new shoulder worked. He made sure that I had a complete understanding of what my expectations should be for recovery and how we would get there. Emphasizing of proper form, he made sure that not only could I do the exercises, but that I knew why it was important to do them a certain way. The entire staff at Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy are professional, but down to earth. My shoulder is better than I expected it would be after this surgery and my surgeon is very happy with the progress made through physical therapy. My son and husband have always used Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy with great success. I highly recommend Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy."

"For the past two years I’ve been treating with Mitch at AOST for multiple orthopedic issues. Mitch is compassionate and encouraging while helping his patients reach their full potential. I’ve always had the go hard or go home philosophy, but after being diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder and finally receiving help from Mitch I now realize that slow and steady is okay, and he’s okay with that as long as I continue to progress! Mitch is very knowledgeable and thinks out of the box to help his patients any way he can. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming and all work hard to meet the needs of all of their patients. I highly recommend AOST!"

After a number of sessions with Mitch, my hip was back in shape to where it was before I aggrevated it. He helped stretch out the affected areas and prescribed exercises to strengthen my right side and leg. The facility is very nice and welcoming. I strongly recommend Mitch and all the staff at AOST."

"Not sure how to explain how great Mitch and his team are. Personable and professional, and accommodating to my needs. They worked with me, patiently ,to find a program of therapy that addressed my pain. Though it is clear they are fabulous at helping patients recover from injuries, my situation was different and required longer term and varied treatment options. Not only did they help me a lot with my condition, they also ~never~ gave up on making sure I was improving and really cared! I highly recommend them!"

"REVIEW ADVANCE Orthopedic and Sports Therapy Looking for a rehabilitation program for an active life style? Look no further than ADVANCE Orthopedic and Sports Therapy in Lowell. Friendly staff and competent therapists greet and treat you. I was lucky enough to cross paths with Mitch Guttentag, a great therapist and a good listener. Unlike other therapists I have worked with, Mitch is a hands on kind of guy who stays in the exam room with you as you do the exercises and uses his own strength against you to help strengthen your muscles. I had developed a significant limp and severe pain in my right hip. I was diagnosed with bursitis and tendonitis by the Orthopedic Surgeon I saw. Mitch put me through a complex series of exercises and concluded that I must have a tear in one of my gluteus tendons. He suggested that an MRI be done to check his hypothesis. Sure enough he was right. I had a full thickness tear of the gluteus medius tendon, making it difficult for me to walk correctly. Mitch felt that all the rehabilitation in the world would not fix this problem, so therapy was discontinued. I am now scheduled for a surgical repair. You can be sure I will return to Mitch at ADVANCE Orthopedic and Sports Therapy after surgery for my rehabilitation. S. Willey"

"I recently spent a number of weeks in physical therapy at Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy working with Mark Manfredi. It was an excellent experience. Mark worked with me as I was healing from Piroformis Syndrome which was really debilitating. He set me up with a number of strengthening exercises and after about five sessions I was back to running! Mark was really knowledgeable and personable and wonderful to work with. The whole staff made me feel welcome and made sure my experience there was a positive one. I highly recommend Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy."

"I was treated on 4 occasions at Advanceorthopedic following my hip replacement surgery. I was given full attention from the young lady at the front desk to Mitch(therapist) and Jackie(student assistant). Mitch gradually increased the exercises according to how I was doing. If he had to attend another patient, Jackie was right there to continue monitoring my activity. I made both aware of minor knee surgeries I had 20 years ago so that they could adjust any activities. I would not hesitate to return in the future if I needed therapy."

"I went to Advance Orthpedic and Sports Therapy after a slip on the ice. I broke both sides of my ankle and had a spiral fracture of my fibula and tibia in my shin. I ended up with plates and numerous screws. After my operation, and a couple of months recovery, I went here for PT. I had Mitch Guttentag. He was fantastic! As a matter of fact, all the people who are in their employ seem well educated and very pleasant. Mitch was very patient with me and has helped me tremendously. I can't say enough about this establishment. I highly recommend the entire crew, and in particular Mitch Guttentag. You'd be doing yourself a favor by going here. All appointments are timely as well. Good Luck!!!! I hope your therapy goes as well as mine did. Martha J. Donohoe Lowell, MA"

"My golfer's elbow is much better thanks to the exercises that strengthen my back muscles. This approach of addressing the weakness that contributed to the injury was far more successful than the others I tired. I also learned that the pain that was nagging my lower back wasn't just 'age'. Now I can work in the yard without elbow pain, and play tennis. And my back no longer limits how long I can stand at the kitchen counter or drive the car. So the 'overuse' injury in my elbow led me to start strengthening my back with collateral benefits. Thanks, Mark."

"Advance Orthopedic is great. The staff are both friendly and knowledgeable. I have been here for three different orthopedic issues, a bone fusion in my foot, problems with my elbow and a spinal fusion at C6 and C7 in my neck. All three times my therapist, Carly Keafer, helped me get my range of motion back to normal. Carly is a rock star in my book!!! I would recomend Adavance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy to anyone needing a Phyical Therapist. In fact, I already have. My wife had a knee replacement last summer and she had great results with Heather, another therapist on the Advance team. I hope I don’t need them again any time soon, but if I do, returning to them is a no brainer. In my opinion, there is no other choice!!"

"I cannot say enough great things about this facility. Mitch was the therapist that worked with me and his knowledge in the field of PT is second to none. He truly gave me the feeling he cared about me and my recovery. He was very encouraging, but at the same time he pushed you to get better, all the while he would constantly ask, "are you o k." , or, "are you doing all right"? Every employee in which I dealt with was very pleasant and helpful. By my second visit, they made you feel like one of the family. The place was kept very clean. I noticed all the staff were constantly sanitizing all the spaces in which patients were utilizing. If you have a choice to pick a place to go for physical therapy, I would, without a doubt, highly recommend, Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy, PC, to anyone looking for complete satisfaction. "

"Carly is an excellent physical therapist. She is very personable. I have been to a few physical therapists for my back, and Carly was by far the most effective. The exercises that she showed me provided pain relief. She explains the exercises in great detail, and why they help improve your condition. I recently moved out of the area, and Carly provided me with detailed information (print-outs of exercises, detailed instructions etc) to bring with me, until I find a new PT. She even took calls from me and answered any questions I had, after I moved out of the area. Carly is a very knowledgeable PT, and is a pleasure to be around. I hope I can find a new PT as good as Carly! The rest of the staff I dealt with here were very good as well. The facility itself is nice."

"Couldn't have been more pleased with the physical therapy I received at this facility after a recent total knee replacement. (8/1/2017) Surgery on a Tuesday, started with Mark the following Monday for 10 consecutive sessions (5days/week) prescribed by the surgeon. I later learned from Mark that this was not the normal regime after a knee replacement, but he jumped in with both feet and ultimately felt it accelerated the rehab. The first week I could not drive. Chauffeured by various family members who sat in on the sessions. All were complimentary of Mark's methods and demeanor. After the 2 weeks, therapy gradually ramped down to 3/week, 2/wk. 1/wk. Overtime Mark taught me an extensive list of exercises/therapies of which the vast majority can be done at home. It has now been almost 10 weeks, and I'm done with therapy. Met all the goals, just need to continue on my own at home... In summation Advance(Mark), job well done.!"

"This is my second time at Advanced Orthopedics and both times my therapist Brittany has been fantastic! I had knee surgery the first go around and she got me walking and using my knee again right on schedule. This time, I had ankle pain that had been going on for 5 weeks and was really affecting my mobility. After just 6 weeks, my ankle feels 100% better and I am walking normal again. I know that if I should ever require physical therapy again, Brittany will definitely be the one I go to!"

If another issue arises, I will definitely call Mitch again. He's a busy man, but always accommodated my schedule. Thank you."

"Three years ago I was in need of physical therapy for strength and balance. I had Mark M. as my therapist. I found him extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of my needs. Today, I am stronger and my balance back to normal. I have two sons who have benefited from Advanced Orthopedics this year. One is currently working with Mitch for strength and range of motion in his foot. I am amazed of movement Mitch has obtain. My son has a disability, we have had many evaluations thought many years, I was so impressed with what Mitch had to say. My son has gained confidence and feeling much better as a result of working with Mitch. My other son had spinal surgery in Dec. 2016, as a result he's dealing with back spasms. I found Brittany M. my son's therapist very compassionate and extremely knowledgeable in the therapy needed to help my son through this very difficult time. I have nothing but praise for Advanced Orthopedics Tewksbury. Found them to be very professional and extremely knowledgeable in their field."

"I was a patient at Advance Ortho and Sports Therapy from January-May 2017 and from the very first week, it was a pleasure! The staff from reception to associates, to therapists, were all warm, friendly, and professional without exception. Appointments were scheduled quickly and efficiently and there was seldom a wait more than 5 minutes in a given appointment. I was always taken on time and escorted to the treatment room by a staff member. The rooms and facility, in general, were clean and organized. The staff was always available as needed. I worked with Mitch Guttentag as my primary therapist. He was always professional, compassionate and precise. He has a warm personality and great sense of humor. I felt I made great progress thanks to his guidance and treatment plan in collaboration with my health care provider. I would highly recommend this practice to everyone. It was a great experience from start to finish."

"I was a patient of Brittany M. (2) different times for treatment prior to and after spinal surgery (treatment from Fall 2016-Winter 2017). I could not be happier. I have had physical therapy though out my life at various in /outpatient facilities and these folks are amazing. To say I would highly recommend Brittany or any other staff member there would be a major understatement. If you are serious about treatment and want to get something out of it. Go here"

"Mitch and his team at AOST are top notch. I had a spinal injury and was dealing with pain every single minute of my life, it felt like I would never get back to my normal routine ever again. Fast forward a few months and I can finally sleep throughout the night, I've gotten back to working out and being able to do simple things again - like washing my hair in the shower without pain! I can't thank them enough. Not only do they know what they are doing but they also care, they go above and beyond to talk to you and to see how you are feeling, and to me that makes a big difference. You're not just another patient in the books here - you become a friend and they want to heal you, and that's exactly what they did for me. Thank you AOST for all that you do! -Kerry Sousa"

"I had extensive shoulder and bicep surgery in October and started with Mitch in November. On my first return visit with my surgeon after starting PT he was very happy with the progress and said I was coming along better than anticipated. Every appointment after was the same and my shoulder is feeling better every day. I have about 95% of the motion back and the exercises Mitch gave me have me well on my way to 100%. Mitch was great from the beginning and changed his routine to accommodate my schedule. Twice a week at 6:30 AM! I will miss our talks about the world most as he worked my shoulder back to health. He is as good a person and therapist. The sincerest form of flattery is copying but in the PT and healthcare world, it is "would I send someone I loved to be treated by them" and the answer is yes. My son was treated for a foot issue by Mark and he too is much better with a great plan for stretching going forward! I highly recommend Advanced Ortho and Sport Therapy to anyone looking to recover from injury/surgery."

"Advanced Physcial Therapy is hands down the best physical therapy clinic that I've ever been to. I've gone to 4 different clinics since 2010 to recover from multiple surgeries that stem from a genetic condition, and this is the only place I have continued to return to time and time again. The staff are absolutely incredible. They have a wealth of knowledge between them and they take the time to explain your injury or condition, as well as what each exercise and treatment does and how it will benefit you. It's easy to see that the aides and the therapists genuinely care about every patient that comes through their doors. My PT Brittany has been a godsend, she has helped me immensely and I am so grateful. I cannot recommend them enough!"

Not only did My PT Brittany Mordaski help me to heal my sprained ankle, but she uncovered underlying problems of strength and weakness which were treated effectively. Previously I worked with PT Mark Manfredi for a shoulder injury and received similar excellent and effective treatment. I highly recommend AOSP to everyone with full confidence. Thank you Brittany!

"My daughter just finished her last PT session with Heather. Heather and all staff at Advance Orthopedics is phenomenal. Heather was great with my daughter who has special needs. I originally put much time into finding a PT place that could "cater to my daughter". Well I found it!!! The day i called for the first appointment, I explained my situation to them, they immediately set us up with Heather, and highly recommended her, and assured me she would meet out needs. Well we were NOT disappointed. Heather went above and beyond in her approach to performing PT on my daughter. She found a way to understand my daughters inability to say she had "pain", and found fun and exciting ways to treat her. She even did dance moves with her!!! Everyone was pleasant and were genuinely involved in making each visit a comfortable one. I cannot thank Heather and Advance enough for helping us through this long rehab process. If my family or friends ever needs PT again, I know where we are going to refer them! With an added note, the facility is very accessible, clean and friendly, and convenient appointment times. THANK YOU!!!! "

"My experience at Advance Orthopedic was wonderful. Their location was great for me...a convenient 2 minute ride. Working with Mark was also a great experience. He made sure I was doing the stretches as well as the strengthening exercises correctly before I left the office and then revisited them on my next visit just to be sure I was doing them all properly. I would highly recommend them."

"Not only am I currently going to AOST, but I've also been over the past few years for various ailments, seeing Heather every time. Because my first physical therapy was at AOST, I also wanted to experience other places, so I "cheated" on them by trying other places and AOST is without a doubt the BEST!! AOST listens, answers questions, and spends real quality time with you. (Time with the therapist at those 'chain' companies was severely lacking. In fact, I refused to return to one local company after the first appointment. The therapist spent the time I was exercising by doodling on a pad of paper, and we had almost no interaction.) I'll never cheat again! AOST is THE place to go!! The entire staff is wonderful - they're friendly, respectful and very professional. I highly recommend them!"

"First came to Advance Orthopedic and Sports Therapy in March, 2014, three weeks before I was set to run in the Boston Marathon. Heather Jones (and the rest of the team) patched up a gastrocnemius (calf muscle) issue in no time at all, and had me ready to run the important first Boston Marathon after the bombings in 2013. Unfortunately, this year, after running the Disney Marathon in January, I came up lame with a new issue, further up the leg, in the lateral hamstring on my thigh. After being able to run 26.2, I was not even able to run one mile, literally, because of muscle pains. Even taking stairs was an issue. Had to shelve running for weeks. Thankfully, a return trip back to Advanced Ortho identified the problem on the first visit. With three weeks' worth of PT and Heather's magic touch, I've once again been able to return to running, pain-free. I won't lie - the deep tissue muscle massage, particularly with their instrument of PT torture, the Edge, or as I call it,, the brass knuckles - was a not-so exquisite level of pain. But make no mistake - IT WORKS. As much as I dreaded (and laughed nervously through) the 10-15 minutes of the deep tissue massage, there is no arguing it is a surefire fix. The staff here doesn't just put you through their PT regimen, they sit and talk through your own plan. They take in the total picture, not just the pain that's presenting. And they help you come up with a plan that's going to get you back on your own road to rehab, at the pace you want. Since I didn't have to turn the injury around in time for another Boston Marathon this year, the plan of attack wasn't as aggressive, and really worked on what I needed for a timetable. Can't say enough about the care here - I'm astounded by their ability to trace every fiber of a muscle from point to point. It's amazing. (That also allows them to practically draw a bullseye on the point of injury.) I've repeatedly called them miracle workers, and I stand by that. Not just for my minor muscle injuries, but for the work I can see them conduct with other folks who pass through the doors, many of whom have far more serious and debilitating injuries than my running maladies. Always sad to wrap up a PT stint there, because I know it's helping my ridiculously inflexible body heal, but glad to get back on the beat. Nothing personal to Heather and the rest of the folks there, but if I don't see you again, that's because you've done great work and I'm running injury free! Keep on running!"

"I have been to Mitch Guttentag several times when I damaged things extensively. Every time he works his "magic" and I recovered. Mitch is not only very knowledgeable and a true expert in PT, he also is a whole body person. When I went in for bursitis, Mitch noticed that my pronation was off and custom made arch supports for me. This was the underlying fundamental problem that I had, that no one else had noticed, that caused the pain, that led to the fall, that caused the bursitis in the first place! Mitch is very supportive that at 73, I want to maintain my high level of fitness. Very very highly recommended. These folks are absolutely the best in the business. I now live a long way away, and I am extraordinarily glad that I traveled back to these folks. They are well worth the commute."

After the first surgery I signed up to be treated with Advance Orthopedic & Sports Therapy. I am so thankful that I did! Their, warm and genuine caring for the well being of their clients is evident in all they do. Today I am very grateful for the care I received, as it made me stronger, flexible and functional. I attribute this to my treatment at AOST. In fact my husband is now under their care for a knee replacement. Why? Because I would never think to entrust the care of myself, friends or loved ones to any other PT facility!"
