“Loved the pace, the knowledge Laura has, and the warmth she exudes”

Jill, Concord MA

“Laura Diamond is an excellent physical therapist in the Boston area. Laura is detail-oriented, dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, smart, and has a sense of humor. She focuses on your problem, and seems to care only about getting you better. I’ve seen a lot of people in the medical profession over the past fifteen years, and most of them have not impressed me. Laura is an exception.”

Eric Albert, Newton, MA

“As the parent of a child with SMA, I have become so accustomed to doctors, clinicians and educators talking to me about limitations. Our experiences with Laura have been the polar opposite. While making every effort to understand our son and his medical needs fully, she focuses on all the things he can do and where we can push past his current limitations. Working with Laura always makes him feel strong, confident and happy. To see the look on his face when he gets to really move on his own – his whole body rolling and dancing in the water, is pure joy. We have found Laura’s knowledge, skill and dedication to be both unique and downright magical.”

Kate, Mother, Natick MA

“Laura has touched and changed my life. I used to be petrified of the water, but she has helped me to relax and feel comfortable in the water. After swimming, I am like a battery, fully charged.”

After being in therapy for 6 months, Sheila said, “I can do a lot more now…. I can reach up to the trapeze with both hands, when I used to need help, I can sit by myself on the edge of the bed, and I can feed myself with a lot less help. I couldn’t do these things before.”

“Everyone is interested in results and the therapists at Diamond Physical Therapy Associates get results. I can attribute their successes and my patients’ accelerated recoveries to the exceptional care being offered by this group and to the benefits of aquatic physical therapy.”

“Laura Diamond is a treasure. She combines focus, connectedness, caring and skill. Her gift for healing has changed my life.”

“When I started working with Laura Diamond, I was experiencing chronic pain and exercise intolerance secondary to fibromyalgia (FM). I also had other multiple problems, including bursitis in both hips, arthritis in one foot, and tendonitis in my shoulder. I was a mess!

Laura carefully evaluated all the physical problems and started me on a gradual and gentle regimen of manual therapy and exercise. In time, I achieved all of my goals and I was in the best physical shape in decades. Now, I work out vigorously several times a week using exercises and self-knowledge about my body that I learned from my work with Laura. Perhaps the best outcome is that I keep my FM in remission through my exercise regimen and enjoy a wide range of physical activities without pain or injury.

Laura is exceptional – the best physical therapist I’ve ever had (and I’ve had lots over the years). Her individualized attention is what really makes the difference and her program is unique.”

“From the first time I met her, Laura’s mix of professionalism and genuine empathy for my severe chronic pain truly impressed me and put me at ease. Her initial assessment and examination went far beyond those of many therapists. She is very patient with me, stays with me the entire therapy session, and offers me both helpful correction and lots of positive reinforcement. While I’m enjoying the warmth of the therapy pool, she has helped me get stronger! Physical therapy with her is worth every penny.”

“Laura is amazing! Laura’s innovative, knowledgeable and personal approach are unique and comprehensive.”

Astrid Williams, Concord MA

“Laura is amazing! I had shoulder surgery two years ago and was in Physical Therapy for months and it was not working. When the pain became unbearable and my shoulder and arm were getting weaker I was told I probably needed another operation.  I was recommended to Laura by a friend; in a few short weeks I feel so much better. Laura’s innovative, knowledgeable and personal approach are unique and comprehensive. I am hopeful that with her continued work I can avoid having more surgery.”

Astrid Williams, Concord MA

“I came to Laura for aquatic physical therapy because everyone said she was the best. I wanted the best and she is the best. I have not been disappointed. She has definitely helped me get to the next level.”
