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.
Had knee replaced excellent treatment at facility
FB PT was a great experience. I went for lower back pain and the my physical therapist (Julia) was great. She helped me work muscles that I hadn't been using, which was contributing to my back pain. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy to anyone.
Jennifer Carney and her team were great to work with. They were friendly and prompt and considerate of my needs and answered any and all questions. I experienced good results. The facility has a full complement of exercise equipment. Daily stretching and strengthening exercises were developed for me to do at home during PT along with the same for continuation after PT was over. I highly recommend them.
Had therapy on my left shoulder from Julia. She was the best! Very knowledgable and very caring. She worked with me to strengthen my shoulder but without pain,had a comprehensive therapy program and then was given a home workout program. I felt very comfortable having therapy with her. I have regained pain free movement of my shoulder.The receptionists are also very friendly and pleasant to everyone. The physical assistants were also very competent and the students were also very pleasantI would recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy to everyone
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.

Jay and the staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
Brianna was fantastic and super patient as she helped me strengthen my shoulder/neck pain. The staff and facility are great. Would recommend them for sure!
I had PT after knee replacement. Run like Boston teaching hospital with Doctorate level supervisors and interns. Facility is modern and well equipped. You want the best surgeon for the operation and the best PT facility for the arduous rehab. My therapist was knowledgable and professional. . I would strongly recommend .
Ryan was very professional and supportive. When I need PT again I will definitely ask for him.
Very nice facility, friendly stuff! Most importantly, knowledgeable Therapist! I went for knee pain and I just can't believe how it's helping me! Only couple weeks in, My pain is already mostly gone and I learned so much as to what I can do regularly to keep my knee healthy! Looking forward to the end of my 9 sessions and see how much improvement I can get!
