Andrea Baker

PT, ATC, AT/L

Andrea is the owner and founder of Dynamic Bracing & Physical Therapy, Inc. She graduated with a B.S. in Physical Therapy and won the Faculty Recognition Award from Eastern Washington University in 1994. She is skilled in Fascial Counterstrain and is also a Certified Athletic Trainer. Her highest priority is making her patients better. She combines advanced treatment techniques with patient education, and is sought out for her ability to handle complex and chronic cases where other treatment methods have failed.

Andrea feels the profession of physical therapy requires lifetime learning and supports the entire physical therapy team in regularly attending continuing education courses.

Andrea is a Spokane native and mother of two. She is an active parent who volunteers at Garfield Elementary and North Central High School. She is passionate about healthy living and spends as much time as possible enjoying nature and the outdoors playing sports, gardening, camping, and hiking in the woods.

Jesse Dunn

DPT, CSCS

Jesse graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2017 with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Prior to graduate school, she graduated North Dakota State University with a degree in both Exercise Science and Psychology. Jesse has been a certified personal trainer since 2007 and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach with the National Strength and Conditioning Association since 2010.
She enjoys working with all types of patients, especially helping athletes of all ages return to optimal performance. She uses a combined approach of manual therapy and exercise to help patients return to the activities they love. When she’s not working, Jesse enjoys biking, gardening, and exploring the outdoors.
“I have been an injured athlete, trying to stretch, exercise, and tape myself out of an injury without success. That’s where manual therapy comes into play. I have been practicing fascial counterstrain for over a year now and notice more benefits with this technique than any other. Some things you can’t do yourself, and that’s when coming in for manual therapy can help you.”

Meghan Faulkenberry

DPT

A Spokane native, Meghan graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2013 with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy and, before joining the team at Dynamic Bracing, worked in skilled nursing. In addition, she also races as a professional triathlete. Meghan embraces the opportunity to combine her educational background in skilled therapy with her passion for exercise and sport. Because of her own experience with the training and conditioning involved in triathlon, she can assist others through their own personal endeavors, be it at the recreational or competitive level.

While in the clinic, Meghan uses specific exercise and manual therapy to facilitate improved body awareness and movement for sport, as well as for everyday life. On the side, she also coaches clients in triathlon, running, and nutrition for endurance sport and an everyday healthy lifestyle. Her love for activity and health also keeps her active in the outdoors by spending time traveling for races, walking her dogs, gardening, and whipping up new creations in the kitchen.

We would love to hear from you!

    I haven't been the same since I had PT with you. The Surgeon, called me, that I was supposed to schedule shoulder replacement surgery with, because I was going to schedule it after the snow was gone, spring 2019. I was able to tell them, I had no need for it. My shoulder was better than it has been in years, because of a fall on the ice and Physical therapy and Chiropractic following. My shoulder doesn't hurt, snap crackle or pop anymore. I can raise my arm above my head without any pain Thank you for helping this 76 year old feel "50" again.

  • The whole team here are so exceptional that words can barely describe. I have a condition that is rarely studied by doctors called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I have seeked treatment by Chiropractors, Acupuncturist, etc, etc. The Strain Counter Strain treatments are beyond amazing in relieving my pain! I don’t want to miss the opportunity to tell everyone that they have some of the most modern and technological exercise equipment ever seen! And holy moly they have bracing for everything. I got a SI joint brace...yeah I said SI joint brace...who has ever heard of one of those? Anyhoo go see them if you have any type of pain from athletic muscle strains to chronic pain from EDS, MS, ALS, etc. I swear their practice can give you some relief. Andrea has magic in her hands!!

    I love this place! I had almost given up on my body getting re-balanced and pain free (let alone being able to resume my regular exercise), before I was referred here. Andrea got me fixed up and stronger than before, and in no time at all! I was amazed. She showed me some exercises to strengthen my weak points and ways to correct my body with muscle work. I especially loved the fascial counterstrain work, I noticed the most difference right away from that. Nice office staff and great service, I highly recommend!

    I am very happy with the physical therapy that Jesse Dunn has provided me for my ne hip replacement. She is patient, thorough and most important knowledgeable in what I need. I have been to other physical therapists who provide maybe 15 minutes of therapy and then leave me on my own foe the rest of the hour. That is not the case with Jesse, her attention is working with me for the whole time allotted. I highly recommend you request her.
