Doctor of Physical Therapy


Dr. Shelley Cahn is a NY State licensed physical therapist with over 13 years of training in various healing modalities. She draws on this large knowledge base and integrates it with the innovative technique known as Fascial Counterstrain (FCS), as well as conventional physical therapy to quickly and effectively resolve pain, and increase strength, range of motion, and blood flow.


Dr. Cahn's approach is pain-free and often relieves acute or chronic symptoms permanently after just a few sessions. Using FCS, Dr. Cahn has been able to help many patients who have not seen lasting results with other therapeutic methods.


FCS training requires an extensive mastery of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, and is beginning to be taught in depth at mainstream physical therapy programs. Dr. Cahn first encountered FCS during a clinical rotation at a widely sought after clinic in upstate NY and was blown away by its ability to heal even the most complicated and chronic conditions that were not able to be resolved elsewhere.


Dr. Shelley Cahn received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 2017 and is one of a handful of FCS practitioners in the New York Metropolitan area trained in the technique.


Dr. Cahn resides in both Upstate New York and Manhattan with her husband and three children.
