Brian Fallon was introduced to physical therapy at an early age, as he tore his ACL when he was 11 and then had surgery at the age of 15. But throughout his recovery, physical therapy was the one thing that always made him feel better and helped him get back to playing sports again. These positive experiences led Brian to decide that he wanted to become a physical therapist when he was only 12 years old, and this path led him to Seton Hall University, where he was awarded a full academic scholarship and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in 2004. He then earned a Doctor in Physical Therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 2006.
Twin Boro Physical Therapy was Brian’s first choice for employment upon receiving his license, since it was at their Parlin location where he was first exposed to physical therapy and inspired to make it his profession at age 12. He started working at the Westwood location in 2006, where he was eventually promoted to Assistant Director in 2009 and then Clinical Director in 2011. Brian also served as the Clinical Director of the Fair Lawn location from October 2018 to July 2020.
Brian specializes in general orthopedics and enjoys working with all patient populations, from children and adolescents to geriatrics. He has expanded his knowledge base with a variety of continuing education courses and seminars on topics like manual therapy, physical therapy ethics, functional strength, and dizziness treatment. Brian utilizes those skills to provide a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan consisting of manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and functional activities intended to correct each patient’s impairments and movement dysfunctions. He recently began bringing his knowledge to the community through lectures at the local senior center to educate patients on the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through age-appropriate exercise programs.
When treating patients, Brian utilizes Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model. This unique approach looks at the entire continuum of care for the patient or athlete and helps them progress from a relatively low level of function after injury or surgery all the way through to peak performance after completing treatment. With this approach, Brian can individualize his treatment plan to meet the needs of the patient and help them achieve their functional goals.
