HELPING YOU GET BACK TO WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO

Experience top-notch, one-on-one physical therapy in our friendly, relaxed environment. Our physical therapists utilize special techniques they’ve learned from additional training that you may not receive at other facilities. These include fascial counterstrain, functional rehabilitation exercises and muscle energy techniques just to name a few. We’ve designed our practice to allow for the extra treatment time necessary to really listen and formulate a treatment plan tailored just for you.

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. She enjoys cooking with organic foods and educating people about the benefits of essential oils.

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.

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.”

  • 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!!

    Dynamic bracing offers not only physical theraphy, but also strain/counterstrain for chronic pain. I have tried lots of different things, but strain/counterstrain gives me the most relief from pain. Awesome, caring, skilled therapists

    I can't believe how much relief I get from going to Andrea and Jessie. I have been going to them for 5 years off and on. I go in for about 6 sessions about every 6 months for counter strain. They help reduce my pain and lymphedema due to breat cancer and radiation. Nothing else works. Not even at home stuff. I can enjoy doing things again just from the treatments. I reccomend them to every one. It is AMAZING!!!!

  • If in fact you have a fall, accident or other problem
    THIS IS THE PLACE TO GET HELP. I found Andrea Baker, Arch & Jesse to be excellent in their work & the ultimate professionals at all times. Strain and counterstrain technique was new to me. This treatment was very effective, they also gave me physical therapy exercises to do at home which helped the process of recovery. I would highly recommend this office for Physical Therapy. The environment was bright and cheerful & clean. Everyone made working on recovery a real good experience. Thank you for your help.
