“Ms. Diamond is a professional and knowledgeable Physical Therapist who provided excellent consultative services to our agency as we developed plans for an aquatics facility designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of individuals with disabilities. She was easily accessible for meetings and thorough in her review of the drafted plans. Her guidance helped tremendously in our decision-making process and we would happily use her services in the future.”

Brian Liu-Constant, Ed.S., BCBA, Chief Operating Officer, Evergreen Center

“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.”

Bob Lobel, Sportscaster

Joni had a total hip replacement. Hear what she has to say about why Laura is different than traditional physical therapists.

“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 have waited my whole career for a therapist with Megan’s caliber to join my practice. Megan shares my passion for the water and aquatic physical therapy.”

Laura Diamond, PT, MS

Abbey has chronic pain.

Joni had a total hip replacement and came to Laura after she got worse with traditional physical therapy.

“Jacob has been in physical and occupational therapy in some form since he was 7 months old. No other therapist has connected with Jacob in the same way that Laura has. She pushes him to do things he doesn’t think he can do, without him even realizing it! Her manner with him is amazing, and he actually looks forward to his sessions with her. As his parents, we trust that she has his best interests at heart, and that she truly cares about him and the progress that he makes. ”

Lynn W., Mother of Jacob

“Laura Diamond is a total gem.”

Sally Sanford, Concord MA

“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.”

Olivia Magic Carpet

“Ready to go? From the second those three words are uttered each session Megan is locked in and her number one focus is on six year old daughter, Olivia. But she is not there as a swim instructor or PT she is there as her partner. Actively engaging Olivia in conversation and more importantly listening for both verbal and non-verbal cues about what’s going on both in the pool and in Olivia’s life. Megan had taken great care in forming a strong relationship of trust and understanding with Olivia that has helped both of them remain patient as Olivia has navigated learning a new and challenging environment of the pool.”

Olivia Ring

“Olivia has always had challenges with core strength and balance, and I never quite knew if she would be safe in the water, but week after week I see Olivia’s confidence grow as Megan truly enables her to not only be safe and be strong, but have a love of swimming. I could not have asked for a better partner in this journey for Olivia. After all, who else would gladly let a six year old dump water on them over and over and over and over again.”

Rich Weiss, Framingham, MA

“Laura Diamond’s physical therapy program has turned my life around. Laura has a remarkably comprehensive knowledge of the muscular and nerve systems of the body. Laura carefully targeted exercises in the water, and then on land, which quickly and entirely eliminated my sciatica pain and resolved a habitual bent over posture problem.  The results were remarkable. Colleagues and students would greet me with remarks such as: “What a transformation! You look like your old self again.” More recently, she has focused on exercises designed to help me counter the onset  of balance problems typical of my age group.”

“Laura possesses a warm and engaging personality, and she knows how to listen to others. She is kind, thoughtful, and eminently competent. Physical therapy with Laura Diamond was the best investment I ever made.”

Richard Cobb-Stevens, Professor Emeritus, Boston College

“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.”
