“Last year, as I went through my first major surgery of my professional career finding an excellent physical therapist was very important for me. I was lucky to find the very best in Veli! He went above & beyond to help my shoulder recover, as well as, educating me on different ways to maintain shoulder strength & help – during the season and off-season. I would recommend anyone recovering from an injury or surgery to go to Velli!”

“I’ve loved working with Veli at OrthoSport through my years of training as an Olympic ice dancer. Whether working to improve strength or addressing a particular concern or problem area, I’ve always trusted Veli to help me stay healthy and in the shape I need to be in to be able to deliver my best performance on the ice.” 


“Veli is likely one of the best PTs in the US.  I am not the only one stating that he has the best understanding of human anatomy I have ever met.  Some – who don’t know him or about him – have asked if he is some kind of a guru.  He is and is also more than that.  They don’t come any better than Veli.”


“I dislocated my patella back in December. My daughter told me to go to OrthoSport. I’m so thankful that I chose this office. The treatment and exercises that I did have been exceptional. I am walking out of here pain free and my flexibility is 100%.”


“I never thought that I would think of PT as a fun experience, but the therapists at OrthoSport are both professional and personal. I remember early on in my PT, I saw a high school boy doing squats on a Bosu Ball and thinking I will never be able to do that! Wrong! My last exercise was just that. I thank you to Beth, SP & Elizabeth.”


“Thanks so much for all of your help the past few months getting me back to a “functioning” athlete. I couldn’t have done it alone.”


“Thank you for your good work. It’s really helped!”


“Thank you so much for letting me shadow your work this summer! I learned so much and see Physical Therapy in a whole new wonderful perspective. In the beginning, I was unsure of how the shadowing would work because it was my first time doing this. But you took me in with joy and open arms and were willing to give me all the insight on PT. I cannot thank you enough! Again, thank you so much for the experience and I hope to see you around.”


“Thank you for all that you’ve done for me!”


“Thank you so much for all of your help with my shoulder. It made my trip so much better. This shoulder is OK now. Thanks again!”


“Just a note to thank all of you for your kind and excellent treatment and care. I am happy to say I feel better than I have in the last 2 years since I was sick. Thanks for helping me sleep all night again.”


“This is just a small token of my appreciation for the many hours of care and concern focused on me, Improved mobility and physical health. Dedication and professionalism must certainly be your motto! Thank you so much. You are all so wonderful.”


“Thank you for all of the help and guidance over the past 6 years. Wishing you the best!”


“Thank you so much for letting me observe you and also sharing your knowledge of athletic training with me!”


“Who would have thought that physical therapy would help extreme back pain from arthritis? My husband’s surgeon suggested it and that’s how I found OrthoSport. SP, Beth and Elizabeth are amazing. Additionally, I tore my rotator cuff and my surgeon recommended PT rather than surgery. I was so glad that the knowledable expertise that I received at OrthoSport paid off! I have been able to return to most of my former activities with little or no pain. I can’t wait to get at that garden again. Thanks to all at OrthoSport.”


“I had been to three other physical therapy clinics without success.  My muscles were so tight that when I did exercises, my pain just got worse from the strain.  When I came to OrthoSport, I experienced immediate relief from my pain and tension especially from their dry needling technique.  It also helps me feel calmer and sleep better.  And now I am able to gain strength and balance without the strain.  I’d highly recommend OrthoSport to anyone.  Thanks Veli!”


“I volunteer in a children’s program.  One day a little girl jumped from a table into my arms.  Without Veli I would have dropped her.”


“Last March after knee replacement I needed a physical therapist close to home since I would be going 3 times/week.  I chose OrthoSport which is where I met Veli.  He designed a therapy plan for me that included “dry needling”.  My knee was back to normal in just 6 weeks.  Then I needed my hip replaced, but had to wait 6 weeks for the surgery.  Back to OrthoSport I went.  Again Veli to the rescue with PT and dry needling. I was able to stay functional until my surgery.  The recovery was much quicker.  Now I am waiting for a shoulder replacement so back to OrthoSport for me.  This time Veli designed a program for me to strengthen the muscles and again dry needling.  I have better range of motion and a lot less pain.  I am still waiting for the surgery, but able to work up until the surgery date because of the dry needling.  I don’t know the science of dry needling, all I know is that it definitely works.  If you are in pain and nothing helps, I would highly recommend OrthoSport and Veli.”

“I’m a very active 71 year old female.  I have been swimming 3-5 miles a week.  I developed sciatica and my swimming came to an end.  My chiropractor, whom I’ve known for 28 years, wasn’t able to alleviate pain.  So…I went to a physical therapy facility and was told I couldn’t do basic movements so they couldn’t help me.  I tried acupuncture for 3 months and it wasn’t helpful.  I had an epidural and I was told I could return for a second procedure 2 months later if the first wasn’t successful.  It wasn’t and I didn’t return.

Then I was able to find OrthoSport.  After the first needling procedure, I was able to swim again!  My condition has continued to improve and I’m back in the pool!

Thank you OrthoSport for giving me my life back!”
