PRO PT’s Story
Preston Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Physical Therapy, PRO PT, opened its doors on August 1st, 2000 under the ownership of Teresa Reynolds, PT MBA and Shanda Reynolds McNew, MPT. The mother-daughter team recognized the importance of providing quality, close to home physical therapy services to the Preston County area and has emphasized personal, hands-on care ever since. PRO PT was founded on only a few simple fundamental values: 1) treat every patient exactly the way you would want your own child, spouse, parent, or grandparent treated; 2) take care of the entire person, always looking at the big picture as many seemingly unrelated issues can all impact one another; and 3) spend any and all necessary time with your patients while only charging rates you feel are fair and reasonable and allow you to sleep easily at night. Shanda and Teresa have always focused on treating their patients like family and the true friends they have become over the years.
In October 2005, PRO PT moved from its original facility and opened a new, larger state-of-art site along Route 7 in Kingwood. With the area’s growing physical therapy demand, PRO PT needed to better accommodate for its patients, add space to provide more personalized care, and introduce new treatment options. The clinic features an expanded fitness area for patients and community members, enhancements to PRO PT’s current pediatric, geriatric, balance and fall prevention, orthopedic and surgery aftercare, and sports medicine programs, added wound care management, and a heated indoor therapy pool for aquatic therapy. Then in May 2014, to better serve the expansive Preston County and surrounding areas, PRO PT announced the opening of an additional facility in Masontown. Under the direction of Tiffany Dolly, DPT, the staff in this location have opened their hearts to the Valley district communities and continue to provide the experienced professional, yet personal, relationship-focused physical therapy care that PRO PT was founded on.
In 2016, when Teresa retired to devote her time to being “Nan” to her 3 grandsons and Harley-riding with the love of her life, Shanda and her husband Glen took a leap of faith and bought PRO PT in its entirety, making the mother-daughter duo now a husband-and-wife team, but still rooted in the same 3 fundamental principles and armed with the invaluable mentorship Teresa taught them over the years and continues to provide moving forward. Shanda and Glen have been very fortunate, blessed with a growing clinic that continues to be well received in the Preston County area with 2 locations currently. However, the owners truly credit PRO PT’s success to the amazing team of therapists and supportive staff that take phenomenal care of our patients and our community. At both locations, PRO PT now employs five full time physical therapists and two physical therapy assistants as well as eleven of the most amazing and dedicated support staff, all of whom take pride in improving our patients’ lives through a personable, goal-oriented, hands-on approach to physical therapy.
Shanda and Glen are pleased to be able to offer comprehensive physical therapy services for their friends and neighbors, where they have chosen to raise their two sons, and in the place they will forever call “home.” “We have an exceptional staff that understands that no one ever wants to need physical therapy, but when they do, it is our mission to make an imperfect situation the best it can possibly be. No one wants physical therapy, but they do want their life back. . . our team will help you get there and make the process as enjoyable as possible along the way.” In the future, PRO PT hopes to continue to build on its already strong community relationships and commits to remaining Preston County’s “key to quality rehabilitation".
