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.
All of the staff at FBPT are incredibly professional courteous. I could feel their drive to help me get better at every visit, regardless of who it was that I was working with. Thank you!
The staff at Furnace Brook Physical Therapy provided me with the tools and positive enforcement I needed to make a solid recovery after surgery. Always professional as well friendly, the staff made what could have been a dreaded experience a very positive one. The facility is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend Furnace Brook PT to others.
I highly recommend Furnace Brook PT. I have gone there for treatment on three separate occasions over the last ten years (all different injuries) and have received excellent care each time.
Great experience working with Jay; he was extremely calm and patient with me.
Staff is friendly and attentive. Bri is amazing. I went in with sever knee pain due to arthritis and within a month she has me on a program for me to do at home and I am virtually pain free! I feel confident that the program I am on will keep me that way for years to come. I play basketball 2-3 times a week and the knee is doing great!
I couldn’t say better things about FBPT and my physical therapist, Brianna. Everyone is very friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. Brianna is kind and attentive and made me feel like she genuinely wanted to see me improve, and guided me every step of the way. I had a great experience here.
A wonderful group with great experience. I had difficulty with my shoulder due to repetitive motion. They were able to help better diagnose the problem and provide a program focusing on flexibility and targeted strength. I used small muscles in places that I did not know I had. My shoulders are stronger and more flexible than ever. I am now able to do everything I want without pain or difficulty. Even more importantly, they taught me how to keep my conditioning to avoid soreness in the future. Thank you.
Staff were highly skilled professionals with excellent patient rapport and communication. Highly recommend this physical therapy group.
Ryan was very professional and supportive. When I need PT again I will definitely ask for him.
My therapist, Julia, was informative, supportive, engaging and most of all skilled. She was able to work towards my goals in a manner that was progressive and extremely pleasant. In addition the many interns and a couple of aids were similar. The receptionists were also very pleasant. I totally enjoyed the people and the culture of this company.
Had knee replacement in 2016 went to fbpt. My experience was great. Samantha Aloco was patient and understanding explaining Home therapy. When I had rotator cuff surgery in March of 2018 Samantha did a great work getting my arm working again. Again I would like to thank all therapists and Samantha for a nice experience during painful rehabilitation. Thank again. Barbara Crawford
Excellent, thorough, expert care providers. All contact points from the reception to the PT and billing were well done. I strongly recommend this location for treatment
