Our Vision

Patient's Well-being First
Giving Back to the Community
State of the Art
PERsonalized Care
Highest Quality Treatment

Since 1982, Jake and Richard "Ratt" Kennedy had a singular goal in mind: to design and operate an orthopedic and sport medicine center that offers the most evidence based and patient centric care. In 1991, their vision was realized with the formation of Kennedy Brothers Physical Therapy. It is a company founded on the concept of putting the patient first and providing the highest quality physical therapy treatment within an increasingly volatile healthcare system.


We specialize in treatment for all injuries to the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, and foot/ankle. At any time, our clinics are filled with athletes and non-athletes alike ranging in age from 9 to 90.

Our Commitment

Kennedy Brothers Physical Therapy believes in putting the well-being of their patients first. We have accomplished this by gathering together a staff of the most qualified physical therapists available. This ensures our patients get only the best possible care for all their sports and orthopedic injuries.

Our Team & Clinics

To achieve this feat, careful staff selection was a must. Kennedy Brothers owns & operates four clinics in the greater Boston area.
Some of our physical therapists have completed the extensive work and educational requirements, and have passed the rigorous examinations by the American Physical Therapy Association to be certified as Sports Specialists (SCS). Others have studied to become certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCS).

All staff members are involved in monthly continuing education meetings. Kennedy Brothers strongly supports and encourages their clinical staff to keep up with the latest research, surgical techniques, and treatment techniques.

Our Partnerships

Kennedy Brothers PT is Massachusetts' best group of privately-owned physical therapy clinics, and we have close working relationships with some of the best orthopedic surgeons in New England. These relationships enable the therapists to maintain continuous contact with the referring physician which ensures the best possible, most case-specific care.

Join Our Team

Kennedy Brothers Physical Therapy is a great place to work with a diverse and growing patient base. Practice alongside some of the most experienced physical therapists who are committed to being at the top of the orthopedic field.
