Back on Track Physical Therapy Opens in Bedford

The main treatment area. More equipment such as Treadmills is expected soon.

Back on Track Physical Therapy recently opened it's seventh location in Bedford at 186 Great Road in the Blue Ribbon Shopping Plaza at the former location of J. Gregory Lamp and Shade. I recently spoke with Susanne Nasson, the General Manager. Back on Track, which opened it's first location in 1999, had previously sublet space from the Burdenko Institute for Aquatic Therapy at the Bedford Veterans Hospital until last fall, when the VA ended the lease. Since most Back on Track clients were from the local community (mainly Bedford, Concord and Lexington), Back on Track had been looking for a new space in the area.

The new location, which had a soft opening on May 5th, is actively looking to work with a local pool in order to offer Aquatic Therapy again. Susanne mentioned that 80% of their local clients want Aquatic Therapy.

According to Susanne, the Back On Track therapists blend traditional physical therapy methods with holistic programs to provide a full range of care. Back on Track also offers one on one treatment in private treatment rooms. Paul Salvi, the Clinic Director for the Bedford location, had worked at the Bedford VA for many years and is well known to many Back on Track clients.

Back on Track has recently started taking referals from Lahey Clinic. In addition to offering physical therapy, Back on Track is also planning to add Wellness Programs, including Yoga classes and is also looking in to  Massage Therapies. The Bedford location currently has 4 employees and is looking to add another 4 as business ramps up. They are planning a Grand Opening Celebration in Early July.
