After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics?a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all seven locations, Dan and Dave?s more than 55 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient?s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others? hair.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
Don't be distracted by the name?Pro Sports Orthopedics is a clinic for athletes and non-athletes alike. Here, every doctor and board-certified surgeon specializes in a different joint, like the elbow, the shoulder, the knee, or the brass hinges that allow us to bend at the waist. This high level of specification means nuanced, detail-specific care in every service, whether it's a cast for a broken bone, joint replacement, or the designing of custom orthotics. And with three different offices and three affiliated hospitals, the clinic helps patients heal all across Greater Boston.
