Our clinic has served three generations of orthopedic and sports medicine clients from the Quincy, Milton and Braintree communities for 30 years. Our mission is to create a culture in the clinic where you can rehab in a positive, value-based environment where we are accountable to meet your goals. Since so much of your success will be related to the work you put in on your own, our therapists will empower you to perform home routines to keep healthy and stay on top of your condition.     

Owner, Jay Bernasconi, DPT, OCS, opened Furnace Brook Physical Therapy in 1987 with a vision of how a successful physical therapy practice should be run. As the clinic has grown, he has been able to assemble a team of physical therapists who guide their treatment by the same philosophy. This philosophy stresses the “science” of rehabilitation while utilizing the “art” that was passed on to him by his mentors.  He mandates that all staff therapists attend a multitude of continuing education courses and pursue additional specialist certifications as they remain on staff. He is an on-site owner and continues to enjoy treating patients in need of rehab. Jay has had the good fortune to advise and assist several of his former therapists in opening their own successful practices.

Furnace Brook Physical Therapy is a teaching clinic, with co-op students from Northeastern University, and internship students from Massachusetts General Hospital-Institute of Health Professions, Northeastern University and other New England universities. We train and hire from within when possible to ensure a standardization within the practice. Our therapists are all members of our professional association, the American Physical Therapy Association, and are pursuing advanced certifications such as Orthopedic or Sports Therapy Specialization, Strength and Conditioning Specialization, Doctoral studies, and ongoing Continuing Education courses.

I had a total knee replacement on 3/28/17 and was cleared for outpatient physical therapy 3 weeks later. I was fortunate enough to start right up with Jay Bernasconi at Furnacebrook Physical Therapy in Quincy. In 6 short weeks I have improved dramatically to the point where I am walking up and down stairs unassisted, riding a stationary bike with ease and walking better than I have in 12 years. Jay and the entire FBPT staff are professional, Knowledgeable and always put you at ease. It is also an amazing facility with all the equipment you will ever need. I credit FBPT with helping me rehab faster than I expected.

It’s been a year since I was injured at work, had surgery on my heel and was non-weight bearing for 3 months. Jay and everyone at FBPT got me back on my feet and back to 100% quicker than any doctors thought possible. Can’t thank FBPT enough!
