I have been dealing with chronic hip pain for over 5 years now. Only being 19, my situation is quite unusual. After trying countless amounts of therapy treatments, injections, and even a major reconstructive surgery, the pain was only getting worse. Finally, I was introduced to Lisa and Kelli. Their willingness to try new treatments and methods with me was very encouraging. I've been working with Kelli in the pool for a few months now, and it is the first time in the past year or so that I've seen results. I can't wait to continue to work with this team and see what else they come up with for my case!
I really cannot recommend the Healthcare Gallery's physical therapist Lisa Jain highly enough. Lisa was highly recommended to me through a co-worker. I was experiencing excruciating pelvic pain while running long distances and exercising. I was experiencing discomfort even in tasks of daily living like walking or even sitting on a hard chair. This all occurred after pregnancy and the birth of my firstborn. I was still experiencing this pain two years after giving childbirth. I never know if it was normal or not because not a lot of professionals have experience with it aside from PT.
I didn't know what to expect with PT as I did not have a lot of experience with it personally-- what I can say is that Lisa made the entire processe a positive one in so many ways -- the Healthcare Gallery is truly lucky to have a professional like her on staff. She is first and foremost very skilled at what she does. She is extremely detailed and I came away with the experience learning so much about my body and how it works and also about physical therapy. She is someone who is a "fixer." She didn't want to just work on the symptoms -- but find the root of the problem. She also helped me with some non-related pelvic pain related issues. If I mentioned anything -- she wanted to fix it!
She is also extremely personable and even though I was having a hard time dealing with the pelvic pain and even a bit of depression at it had effected one of my greatest passions in life -- running -- I always looked forward to my appointments with her as she is so pleasant to be around and you can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and their well being -- in all facets of their lives -- physically, mentally and their family, etc.
I'll definitely be sharing what I learned about pelvic dysfunction after childbirth with others and recommending Lisa to others! She's phenomenal!

I first met Kelli Gueho in early 2015 while getting physical therapy for a sports related injury hamstring tear. She recommended I also include aquatic therapy. Kelli is a certified instructor in that field. Her sessions are all business, and I progressed over time to a full recovery. We stayed in touch, but I was on my own for maintaining my health. I did so by going to the YMCA and cycling.
In February 2017, I started having severe abdominal pain which I was told was probably gall bladder issues, but no test results confirmed this. Finally, in June 2017, I had my gallbladder removed leaving me weak and with little energy. I contacted Kelli again and she set up a regimen of exercise to build up my core. I agreed to participate in the senior Olympic games in early 2018. She made sure I kept up my end of the agreement and the results were that I won gold medals in cycling, swimming and running. I recently participated in an Ai Chi class directed by Kelli which had health benefits and WAS ENJOYABLE. I am 81 years old and in maintenance mode now.

Many thanks to Dr. Jain and physical therapy assistant, Kelli Gueho! I am swimming again. My shoulder injury kept me away from this exercise for many months and I wanted to return without risk of re-injury. I met with Dr. Jain who took the time to fully assess my range of motion and physical alignment. After a few sessions with Dr. Jain, she allowed me to work with Kelli Gueho in both the gym AND the pool for my physical therapy sessions. Their team approach is the best physical therapy plan I have ever received, and I am swimming again.
Lisa Jain has treated myself, my mother, and my daughter. I am truly amazed at how effective her treatments are! My daughter is a level 10 competitive gymnast who was suffering from back pain and receiving physical therapy from a well known company in our area. After many sessions (for 6 weeks 2 hours a day 3 times a week!!) she was not feeling any better. Lisa evaluated her and realized she was being treated at the site of her pain and not the root of her pain, which was her posture. After 2-3 one on one treatments with Lisa, her pain disappeared with no return. Lisa went out of her way to come to her gym and watch exactly what she was doing that caused her pain. I would not consider going to anyone else! She truly cares about her patients, doesn’t give up, and has an outstanding bedside manner.

After hip reconstruction surgery, I was struggling with a number of setbacks and problems during my rehabilitation. A friend highly recommended I meet with Lisa because she had achieved great results working with her. Even though Lisa was located about 3000 miles away from me, I decided to fly across the country in hopes that Lisa could help me. I am so glad I made the trip to see Lisa! Lisa did a thorough evaluation and was able to identify the issues that were hindering my progress. She gave me a detailed protocol to follow that was based on my specific needs. Within two weeks of following Lisa’s rehab protocol, I saw significant progress and felt major improvements in my strength and endurance.
Meeting with Lisa was so beneficial that I flew across the country two more times for a follow-up appointment and an evaluation after reconstruction surgery on my other hip. I have seen several physical therapists in my local area, but none of them can match Lisa’s knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. I highly recommend Lisa as a physical therapist. Thanks to her, both of my hips are doing great and I am back to living an active lifestyle.

There is no better physical therapist out there than Lisa Jain. I had suffered from terrible migraines for most of my life. My migraines were getting so debilitating I was regularly having to take off work for them. In 2009, my doctor gave me a prescription for physical therapy.
Lisa was incredible from the very beginning. Her bedside manner is amazing. She understands pain, having been through physical therapy herself. Lisa is very empathetic, which is so helpful. She promised me she wouldn’t give up on me and would figure out some way to make me better. And she REALLY DID make me better.
Lisa figured out that I was having chronic tension headaches that would lead to my migraines. Through the combination of exercises and treatments she did for me in the office, combined with her ingenious use of physio tape, my incidence of migraines went from 3 a week to less than 1 every 6 weeks. For the first time in years my shoulders and neck felt like shoulders and a neck, instead of a hard, knotted, painful mess.
I moved to Boston in 2010, but the amazing effects of Lisa’s treatment have continued until today. I am forever thankful for Lisa giving me my life back. Without question, if you are looking for someone who will put everything they have into your physical therapy, Lisa is the person you should go to.

Lisa Jain is an incredibly capable and effective physical therapist. I was suffering from a shoulder injury and she was the key to my recovery. Lisa is a hands-on therapist, making the most of every minute of every session. She was spot-on in pinpointing the root causes of my injury, as well as knowing the perfect game plan for my rehabilitation process. I wholeheartedly recommend Lisa’s physical therapy services without hesitation.
