Allyson Bratina (formerly Friday), PT, DPT, OCS  Founder/Physical Therapist

Allyson Friday is a board certified physical therapist specializing in outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation.  She earned her undergraduate degree at Columbia University with coursework in pre-medical studies and philosophy, and swam 4 years Division I for Columbia. She continued the study of philosophy at Teacher’s College, earning a Master’s in Philosophy and Education.  It was during this time that she began her life long study of how we come to know what we know, both of ourselves and our environment, and how we move through this world. She brings this perspective into the treatment room with the assessment of every ailment. Allyson is known for unraveling the complicated story behind what may appear to be isolated shoulder pain, neck pain, or low back pain, when in fact, there is a deeper story.  This approach results in healing complex underlying impairments, resulting in optimal function and performance.

Allyson earned her clinical doctorate in physical therapy at Duke University. With over 16 years of experience, Allyson is a Certified Orthopedic Specialist, and has developed expertise in operative and non-operative shoulder and knee rehabilitation, pelvic floor and core integration, neck and back pain and headaches. She enjoys treating all physical ailments, at every age and activity level. Allyson has a keen eye for motor pattern training and identifying movement dysfunction. Her treatment modalities include manual therapy, trigger point dry needling, piston breathing science, pain science, sports-specific exercise, Body Intuitive, and Integrative Manual Therapy.

Allyson is the founder of Friday Physical Therapy.  She is a recognized expert in all things shoulder, especially as it relates to swimming. Allyson views injury as an opportunity to take our knowledge of our own body and movement patterns to a deeper level.
