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 to be treated; 2) Take care of the whole person, always aiming to see the big picture impacting their story, not solely their current injury; and 3) Devote whatever time necessary to make your patients’ lives better while charging rates you feel are fair, reasonable, and allow you to sleep easily at night.  Shanda and Teresa’s primary mission has been for their patients to be treated like family and the true friends they have become over these last 20 years. 

In October 2005, PRO PT moved from its original facility, opening a new, larger state-of-art site along Route 7 in Kingwood. With the area’s growing physical therapy demand, they needed to better accommodate for 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, as well as enhancements to our pediatric, geriatric, balance and fall prevention, orthopedic and surgery aftercare, and sports medicine programs. The new facility added wound care management and a heated indoor pool for aquatic therapy.  Then in May 2014, to better serve the expansive Preston County area, 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 built 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.  Though ownership has shifted, the same fundamental principles for unparalleled patient care and upstanding business practices are deeply rooted in PRO PT’s company culture. Shanda and Glen have been blessed with a growing clinic that continues to be well received in the Preston County area with 2 locations currently.  Even so, the owners solely credit PRO PT’s success to their tribe - the amazing team that take phenomenal care of our patients and our community.  At both locations, PRO PT now employs six full time physical therapists, one physical therapy assistant, and eight of the most caring 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 care.  

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,” Shanda said, “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 with aspirations to expand to other areas of Preston County while remaining committed to being your “key to quality rehabilitation."
