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.

Great staff and good attention to addressing your physical therapy needs
A few years ago I was recommended to Furnace Brook Physical Therapy. They have the most knowledgeable, caring, considerate,and professional staff I have ever been to. Kristen has been my therapist. She and the entire staff are all well trained professionals. From the evaluation to discharge, the care and treatment you will receive here is second to none. I have had a number of injuries, including having both shoulders operated on and a total knee replacement, I attribute my successful recovery to the care and treatment that I received here. Not only to the weekly programs they guided me through, but also giving me designed exercises to do on my own to facilitate my recovery. I highly recommend FBPT to anyone looking for a quality physical rehabilitation center.
I am very happy to highly recommend Furnace Brook PT. The facilities are clean, comfortable, and set up appropriately for clients. The front desk staff is kind and welcoming and wait time is minimal. It is easy to obtain an appointment time that is convenient, also. All the therapists and co-op students seemed to be pro active and fully engaged with their clients. My therapist was Jill and I feel that she is the best of the best!! I have been treated by her a couple of times for different issues. She is professional yet friendly and highly knowledgeable. Her treatment, suggestions, and recommendations have helped me progress from being in constant pain to having much less discomfort and more range of motion in my shoulders.I can finally sleep at night! The suggested ‘homework ‘ exercises will allow me to continue to improve and become stronger. Hopefully, I will not have to have physical therapy again but if I do I will certainly return to see Jill.
I had the best experience with Furnace Brook PT! Everyone here is so friendly, helpful, and passionate about getting their patients back to their desired activity level. I worked with Brianna for 8 months to recover from an ACL injury/surgery. She was the best physical therapist I ever had! She made every session fun and kept me motivated to keep up with my home program. She really personalized my exercises to my ability and comfort level. I was able to notice huge improvements throughout my time here. I would highly recommend Furnace Brook to anyone looking for a fun place to get amazing physical therapy!
Spent a nearly three months here and I have to say it was worth the time. Ryan was particularly effective in keeping me going and focused on my therapy when I might have given up on my own.
I highly recommend Furnace Brook. Their staff is super friendly and they know what their doing! They made me feel welcome and helped me through a running injury. They took their time each session and I never felt rushed. I didn't feel ready to end my sessions and they were very accommodating. Thanks so much!
Great experience at Furnace Brook Physical Therapy! After just three visits, my injured hand was feeling 100% again. Daniel Joyce was not only very knowledgeable, but also a pleasure to talk to and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Honestly looked forward to each appointment.
I had the best experience and made awesome progress! Danny is the best!
Staff were highly skilled professionals with excellent patient rapport and communication. Highly recommend this physical therapy group.
I came to Furnace Brook PT after tearing my left Achilles and I am forever grateful to the team there and especially Brianna! Bri is an amazing person and an amazing PT. She took her time working with me, she set a plan and we stuck with it. She definitely worked some magic in there along the 8 months I was there. As I mentioned before the entire staff was great, everyone there was so open and polite to everyone that was there day in and day out. I loved every session I had at Furnace Brook Physical Therapy. Thank you once again to the team and Bri!
