about

Dr. Brian Perrier

DPT, FR, FRCms, FRAs

 

 

Brian grew up in Garden City, NY and at an early age developed a passion for how exercise, movement, and physical therapy can positively impact the body and mind. While attending Garden City High School he experienced first-hand the benefits of being treated by a physical therapist and working with a strength coach, which lead him to pursue a career in physical therapy.

 

Brian attended Skidmore College where he earned a BS in Exercise Science and was a member of the basketball team. He was named an All-Academic athlete for his respective conference. During his final year at Skidmore he was selected by the exercise science faculty to participate in a year-long study through a grant from the Department of Homeland Security to investigate "The effects of training status in modulating the effects of heat stress on endothelial function and arterial stiffness following firefighter activity."

Upon graduation from Skidmore College, Brian enrolled into the Columbia University Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.  While at Columbia, he performed rotations in several outpatient orthopedics practices and the inpatient cardiopulmonary department at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. In his final year he was a part of a specialty tract for orthopedics.

 

Since graduation, Brian has worked in an outpatient sports/orthopedic practice treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and surgical cases. During that time, he also had the opportunity to rehabilitate several collegiate, professional, and Team USA athletes back to their respective sports.

 

One of his greatest passions is to constantly improve his craft by learning the best techniques to help his patients move better and with less pain. His goal is to help people of all ages and abilities maximize their human potential in order to live a strong, healthy and happy life.

ASSESSMENT


FRA+logo.jpg

Functional Range Assessment

Functional Range Assessment (FRA®) provides precise, scientific, baseline measurements of a client’s movement capacity for each and every joint of the body. These findings are then utilized within the FR System, which uses techniques based on the best evidence currently available to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders.

Stop Chasing pain Principles

An assessment technique that takes into account the lymphatic, cardiovascular, and nervous systems, their relationship to one another and how it can impact your current condition. Systemic/local inflammation and tissue temperature will be assessed through a sophisticated medical thermal imaging camera.


PAIN

Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy

Amino Neuro Frequency (ANF) Therapy is a revolutionary holistic approach to pain and inflammation that utilizes therapeutic patches to transmit a unique range of frequencies through the body to start a self-healing and self-regulating process.

Thor LX2 Laser Therapy

The Thor LX2 system utilizes Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to stimulate, heal, regenerate, and protect tissue that has been injured. LLLT is laser or LED light therapy in which specific wavelengths of light are used to improve tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied.


MANUAL THERAPY

Functional Range Release

Functional Range Release (FR® Release) technique is an advanced manual therapy system for treatment of the upper limb, lower limb, and spine. The system consists of utilizing anatomic palpation and tissue tension assessment of each structure, and then implementing the appropriate FR® Release treatment. The use of FR® Release combined with functional range conditioning® (FRC®) leads to the restoration of pain free movement and improvement in overall function.

MediCupping Therapy

MediCupping is a form of vacuum therapy that utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum machine to create suction on the body surface to facilitate soft tissue release. The suction provided by MediCupping can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins towards the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them.

Functional Range Conditioning


Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal and human movement expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning® (FRC®), is a system of joint health and mobility training based on scientific principles. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular joint. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.

Owens Recovery Science

Personalized blood flow restriction training (PBFR) is a game-changing injury recovery therapy used by healthcare systems, professional and collegiate sports teams, and military personnel. PBFR is the application of a specialized tourniquet system to an extremity to reduce blood flow to that extremity while exercising. PBFR allows the patient to begin the strength and hyperthrophy phases of rehabilitation much earlier than traditional rehabilitation programs and produces dramatically positive results.

Frequently Asked Questions

IMG_6420.JPG
 

What makes Perrier Physical Therapy different from traditional physical therapy?

Traditional physical therapy clinics are often very busy with multiple patients scheduled at the same time. This typically translates to the patient having little time with the physical therapist they are scheduled to see, while spending the majority of their session with assistants/aides. At Perrier Physical Therapy all visits are 1 on 1 with Brian Perrier for the entire duration of your treatment. Our approach is multidisciplinary and utilizes a whole body concept in order to address all of the systems that may be contributing to your condition. This will allow you to achieve your goals, maximize your health and wellness, and decrease the likelihood of injuries in the future.

 

Do I need to be in pain to come see you?

NO. This is one of the biggest misconceptions regarding physical therapy. Perrier Physical Therapy offers you more than just traditional post-injury rehabilitation. The assessment techniques can be used to determine your readiness to participate in certain exercise programs or as a preseason screening to determine which joints you should work on throughout your season to maximize your performance. You can receive preventative treatment or come in simply to improve your overall health and quality of life. Whether you are making the transition from high school to college to professional sports or just want to be able to play with your kids longer, we are here to work together to accomplish your goals.

Do I need a prescription to get started?

No. In New York State the Direct Access Law allows you to come directly to a physical therapist without a prescription for 30 days or 10 visits, whichever comes first.

 

Do you accept insurance?

Yes. Perrier Physical Therapy is an out-of-network physical therapy provider. We accept most insurance plans (Cigna, Aetna, UHC, Oxford, BCBS) with out-of-network benefits. If you are unsure of your coverage, please contact us and we will have your benefits verified for you.

 

If I do not have Out-of-network insurance, can I still come see you?

Yes, we offer self-pay rates and would be happy to work with you. Please contact us to review your options.
