Jonathan Bernfeld, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

Jon received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from New York University and his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Queens College. Jon’s clinical experience includes orthopedics, acute/sub-acute rehabilitation and adult neurological rehabilitation. Jon has a passion for both neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation and enjoys integrating both aspects into all his treatments.

During treatment, he employs Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Technique principles, maximal neural firing and proper muscle recruitment during functional activities. He has a history of treating patients with stroke, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and a variety of orthopedic conditions. Whatever the diagnoses, Jon sees every PT session as an empowering growth opportunity for both patient and Physical Therapist alike.

Jon grew up in Brooklyn and plays basketball in the parks, football, tennis and is often biking around the city. When needing to escape the city, Jon is always looking to travel and hike the great outdoors as much as possible. But going to a concert, eating at a deli and hanging out with friends always remind him about the beauty of home.

Jon’s dynamic personality, proactivity and keen curiosity have earned him the role as host of SPEAR’s Embrace Your Core podcast series.
