Patient Testimonials

Results can be amazing. Highly recommended!!

Tuckey and Associates incorporate a rather amazing new technique called Strain and Counterstrain into their therapies. In fact, Brian Tuckey helped develop the techniques and is one of only four PT’s certified to teach this method in the US. It is a very light touch treatment that is unusual in that it affects not only muscle tightness, but also the supportive network of connective tissue generally unaltered by traditional pt or massage. Results can be amazing. Highly recommended!!

It was so worth the drive…

I drove 50 miles to see him yesterday after visiting a popular specialist who was totally condescending and dismissive. It was so worth the drive. He was patient, kind, intelligent, and explained everything he was thinking and yes- his hands really are like magic. It’s incredible to see what a few simple movements can do! I was so amazed I talked my poor husband’s head off about how fascinating Tuckey’s work was and how nice it feels to be working with a competent and kind person in the medical field.

Brian and his staff have a wonderful, credible reputation

Brian and his staff have a wonderful, credible reputation. I’ve been to 2 PTs for strain and counterstrain therapy and will continue. It is so worth the drive from Hagerstown. I would travel further if need be. I’m psyched to go there and psyched when I leave, feeling so good from the therapy. I was totally amazed at this technique. Who would ever think something so gentle and relaxing could be so beneficial and sudden! I am so grateful to have them as my PTs with such knowledge of the body.

Brian is compassionate, gentle, and personal…

Brian has been treating daughters jennifer and elizabeth for several years for back issues complicated by Lyme disease. Every time they go in they come out feeling better… his work is a necessity to keep them moving. Brian is compassionate, gentle, and personal without being invasive or inappropriate. He’s incredibly skilled and wonderfully understanding.

You can NOT find a better qualified Physical Therapist…

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Brian Tuckey since 2003 ( when he was with a different company) I followed him to his new practice – you can NOT find a better qualified Physical therapist. I had been to several therapists prior to meeting Brian & found that their techniques were ones I could easily do at home – I have a heating pad – thanks… Brian’s techniques surpass any therapy I have received in the past. He was instrumental in my tough recuperation from two cervical surgeries ( I actually reached out to him for support & advice before my second surgery!!!!) I still see Brian for ” maintenance” and most recently for a back injury. I had a recent FCE done by Physiotherapy Associates ( insurance recommended) what a difference in the professionalism, compassion and KNOWLEDGE- they were absolutely DREADFUL!!!! Brian & his whole team have compassion for what they do and for their clients. I suffer from a multitude of problems, but yet I find them all to be supportive and instrumental in my recovery and well being. You could not ask for more… I would ( and have) recommend his practice to anyone who needs quality care.

I’ve benefitted from each of the treatment sessions…

I have been blessed to be associated with Brian and his associates for about 20 years now in one capacity or another. But, today I’m writing to provide testimonials on two levels, both as a patient and as a clinician.

I’ve been treated by Brian and his associates as well as having taken 3 of the Counterstrain courses in the past several years. Subjectively, I’ve benefitted from each of the treatment sessions, but especially the most recent 6 I received from Brian, Karen and Cynde from November thru December 2017.

I’ve been using the Counterstrain techniques in the homes of a number of patients for a variety of conditions and even with my limited knowledge and skill have been able to relieve pain and restore function for those who have been restricted to their home environment due to their medically compromised conditions. The best part is that the benefits obtained have remained after completion of the home therapy. The patients have been fortunate to have you to turn to for further help.

Thank you (all) for your dedication to learning and teaching. I plan to continue to practice Counterstrain after I stop working in the home care environment.

I am beyond grateful for the tireless work and commitment from Karen at Tuckey & Associates

Each and everyday I am beyond grateful for the tireless work and commitment from Karen at Tuckey & Associates, who truly has changed my life! After years of suffering from endometriosis and after multiple surgeries, I presented Karen with a complex range of symptoms that gave me daily pain, restricted my physical activity and over a period of time became very mentally exhausting! I knew immediately upon starting a series of cranial counter strain sessions that this was going to be a success. Having tried so so many other “physical therapies” and “myofascial release” I knew this made total sense and it would work. What I didn’t anticipate was the commitment both Karen and I would need to see this through to the end – we persevered for many months. Having not exercised or done any level of physical activity for 2 years, I am now exercising at least 3 times a week and have no limitations. I can 150% give credit to Karen for that HUGE transformation.

I can recommend his brand of PT over everything else we have tried…

Brian Tuckey is nothing short of a miracle worker. I am not exaggerating. My daughter started seeing him in April or May. She has Ehlers-Danlos and scoliosis and a myriad of other issues. On day one her leg length was evened. One hour in! Her curve has reduced from 19/24 to 14/18. I have xrays! The only thing we have done differently is use counter-strain. It is worth the 2 hour drive in each direction. I would drive further to have treatment with him. I can recommend his brand of PT over everything else we have tried, including traditional PT, Wellfit, and myofacial massage. We have been to all kinds of specialists and everyone was “let’s just wait and hope it doesn’t get worse.” This was the first time there was real hope that we could do something beyond wait.

I highly recommend this practice for anyone suffering from chronic pain.

I have suffered with chronic, intractable migraines for over 20 years and also now suffer with painful, inflamed Achilles tendinopathy that has lasted for almost a year. The unique manual therapy treatment at Tuckey and Associates Physical Therapy is the first place that I have FINALLY felt some pain relief!! I highly recommend this practice for anyone suffering from chronic pain. The therapists here are truly the ultimate healers and they have found a unique way to help the body heal that I have never experienced before.

The whole place is full of positive energy…

This place, time and again, has been a work of miracles for me.  Truly, Frederick’s diamond in the rough, as not many states are lucky enough yet, to have physical therapists who practice Brian Tuckey’s successful Strain Counterstrain modality of physical therapy treatment. I began with Brian, and continued her being treated by PT assistant Tracy (no longer there), Chris, Cindy, and Karen. My latest two visits, I was blessed to meet Laura, another amazing practitioner of this PT modality, who has come to work there for the past two Summers, then returns to FL when the Summer season ends. I highly recommend all of them, whichever you can get in with, as they always have the scheduling book filled. They also now have an amazing acupuncturist, named Bailey, that works Mondays and Wednesdays. I have has several sessions with her, and loved each one! I love this place!! The whole place is full of positive energy, from the friendly and always accommodating Judy, at the front desk, the billing staff, to all of the wonderful PT practitioners who work there.

It works

The most helpful physical therapy around, hands on. It works.

Thanks so much Chris

I think Chris Butler should be canonized a Saint for the miracle he performed on me. I could hardly walk because my spine was out of alignment and it was affecting nerves in my legs. After each session of therapy with Chris, I became a little more mobile until I am back to normal, pain free. Thanks so much Chris.

I highly recommend it

After a nasty car accident and 6 months of painful PT, was sent here by my physical therapist when I stopped making progress with her. Justin works magic. Plain and simple. This technique is painless and amazing. I highly recommend it.

Thank you!

I never thought PT would help my migraines, but it did. I used to average at least 2 migraines a month for almost a decade, but I have been migraine-free for over 18 months and it has changed my life. Thank you!

I always recommend this office to all of my friends and relatives

My wife, a patient of Brian Tuckey’s, recommended that I see Tuckey for my achy knees and lower legs, a condition with which I’d suffered after growing 10 inches in a year as a teenager.  (My knees crunched when I moved, and legs ached, also hurt when I went to bed.)  Brian Tuckey examined me, was familiar with my symptoms.  He treated me once – no more leg pain. I also had lower back issues that I had been living with for years, and could not keep up with my wife doing yardwork.  Again, Tuckey examined and treated me.  After 4 visits, I felt much better.  A couple of weeks later my wife and I were working in the yard, cleaning up our fence line so it could be painted.  After working about 6 or 7 hours, we relaxed on the patio.  I realized only then that I had not need to stop once to rest – I now feel, quite literally, years younger than my actual age of 65. I cannot say enough about the care and treatment I received at Tuckey and Associates. I always recommend this office to all of my friends and relatives
