“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.”

The office staff are very welcoming and the 2 therapists I've seen are excellent. I really like the strain/counter strain modality they use. I've experience a lot of physical therapy and my results are much better with this technique. They also make use of the BEMER technology for increased circulation/blood flow to support treatment results.Elizabeth Pike5/28/2019
I found DB through Amazon.Top notch provider, in the true sense of the word.I ordered a hinged elbow brace and, being at the verge of two sizes, needed extra assistance for sizing.Doug called the manufacturer and got the exact answer.When the manuf sent the brace without hinges stops, Doug mailed them to me himself.Could not have asked for anything more.I live in PA, and the transactions across the country felt seamless, bcz their service was that exceptional.They're Santa's shop for braces!Lake in Ocean6/28/2015
Andrea and the team at Dynamic Bracing are nothing short of incredible! Their holistic approach to patient care considers the whole person, not just isolated body parts. They are experts at using strain/counterstrain techniques to allow the body to heal and return to, or finally achieve, optimal functioning. Their model enables them to identify the source of the issue, versus treating random symptoms. I have tried chiropractic, massage therapy, and traditional physical therapy to heal my back and joints before I was introduced to the team at Dynamic Bracing. No other treatment has come close to giving me the instant relief that this has. If you are on the fence about going, I can assure you you won’t be disappointed. Their office is beautiful, clean, and tastefully decorated, (which I appreciate...it kind of has a spa feel to it). The only regret I have is that I didn’t know about them sooner!Heather Connor5/15/2019
I definitely recommend Dynamic Bracing & Physical Therapy. They are well organized and efficient in all areas including insurance processing and therapy.
My Physical Therapist, Jesse Dunne, did a great job of explaining what my problem was with my back. She gave me exercises to do at home and did her “magic” to make my back pain free.
She also put on classes for runners to help with our form, strength and agility. Jesse really knows her stuff. I guess that’s why she has a Doctor of Physical Therapy after her name.Jim Hoppe5/08/2019
Since treatments I've had reduced pain and have been able to sleep through the night. Andrea and Becky provided treatments but the entire staff is professional and caring. I can move better and have put off surgery for the time being.Russelle Mazulo5/28/2019
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!!brian simmons5/28/2019
