Meet the Doctors

At Boston Chiropractic and Physical Therapy, Dr. Lisa Scialla, Physical Therapist, and Dr. Tom Pierce, Chiropractor, work with patients through every stage of life, from the very young to the very old, to overcome the strains of daily living. 

We treat a myriad of acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, pelvis, and extremities.  We address strains and sprains, overuse injuries, poor posture, and chronic pain. 

We take our Boston physical therapy and chiropractic patients through post-operative protocols following joint replacement or tendon repair, and facilitate recovery from auto and work accidents.

“Lisa is amazing.  I had a very painful and debilitating shoulder issue and tried many other therapists before finding Lisa.   She was, in fact, the first person to discover the correct diagnosis. Her treatments were perfect and I saw steady improvement and eventually reached a full recovery.” –Linzy E., Waltham
