Carl Faust is the owner of Summit Orthopedic Therapy. Prior to becoming a PT, he began his career as an exercise physiologist working in the areas of human performance, exercise physiology, wellness, and ergonomics.  After obtaining his Master's Degree in Physical Therapy, Carl interned at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, rotating through all aspects of inpatient and outpatient care.  Carl was then offered an opportunity to work in private practice at Prescription Orthopedic Sports Medicine (POST) in Brookline and Boston where he specialized in orthopedics and sports medicine. 

After a few years, Carl
was recruited back to Newton-Wellesley Hospital as a Senior PT and Coordinator of the Annual Post Marathon Running Injury Clinics.  At Newton-Wellesley, Carl had the unique opportunity to participate in teaching, research, and concentrate on evidence-based practice.  For 7 years Carl coordinated annual Marathon Injury Clinics that provided free injury assessment and care planning to athletes that participated in the Boston Marathon.  He then expanded these clinics into a comprehensive RunStrong program where he created and delivered numerous running lectures, screenings, and workshops focusing on injury prevention and recovery for runners of all abilities.  

At Newton-Wellesley, Carl was recognized and promoted to Outpatient Supervisor, then Rehabilitation Manager where he was responsible for all administrative and clinical aspects of outpatient Physical Therapy and Hand Therapy.  He was fortunate to lead and learn with a talented group of experienced clinicians and researchers.  Carl successfully implemented unparalleled clinical quality initiatives focused on decreasing practice variation and improving functional outcomes across all populations.  He also successfully implemented and led major patient satisfaction initiatives that not only centered around getting patients the right treatment at the right time, but focused on understanding and exceeding the patient's expectations.  While in this role, Carl returned to the MGH Institute to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. 

Carl is active in teaching, having served as both clinical instructor and guest instructor for the MGH Institute of Health Profession's Pre and Post Professional Physical Therapy programs.  

Carl understands the need to keep healthy, active, and competitive in sport and promotes healthy lifestyles in his patient care approach.    Carl has been playing lacrosse since 5th grade and still plays today.  After playing collegiate lacrosse, Carl took to other forms of recreation and competition like mountain biking, running, and road cycling. As both an exercise physiologist and physical therapist, Carl puts principles into practice to test training concepts and experiment with training theories. He leads an active lifestyle with his wife Jessica while they try to keep up with their three children Katie, Peter and Sarah!
