Our goal is to consistently deliver clinical and service excellence. We believe that our mission ultimately has a positive impact on the physical therapy profession as a whole and benefits the most important people in the profession – our patients.

In the Beginning

Our CEO & President, Michael J. Mulrenan, PT, founded Mulrenan Physical Therapy in 2001. Within a year, he expanded the business to a full-service wellness facility called Baystate Wellness Center. Baystate offered fitness memberships, personal training, sport training, pre/post natal fitness, massage, and nutrition services combined with a childhood obesity program called Early Start Nutrition & Fitness. The center laid the foundation to build the physical therapy practice and was well respected for its dedication to health and wellness for a wide range of community members. In 2002, Matt McManus, PT, a long time friend and colleague of Mike's, joined the practice. In 2005, Mike and Matt closed Baystate Wellness Center in order to focus their time and energy on building Mulrenan Physical Therapy.

Expanding to New Hampshire

In 2004, Joe Dattilo, PT, a fellow alumnus of Woburn High School and football teammate of Mike's, joined Matt and Mike to form Stratham Physical Therapy in Stratham, NH. Over a ten year period Joe built a strong reputation as one of the New Hampshire Seacoast's premier physical therapists. It was then that Joe sought out Mulrenan Physical Therapy to assist him with the administrative aspects of the practice. Stratham Physical Therapy took off and in 2005 they were joined by another partner, Steve Swasey, PTA. They opened a second location in 2007 in Epping, NH. Then in 2008, the clinic secured a long term relationship with the area's premier sports club, Seacoast United, as a result of a growing reputation. It was then that a third clinic was opened in Hampton, NH, within the sport club's indoor soccer facility.

New Clinics, New Name

Another long time friend and collegue, Eric Kopp, PT, a clinician and educator in the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts region, joined our partnership in November of 2007. That was the beginning of the formation of a more cohesive company  — with Eric on board to lead the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts region under a new name: ProEx.

In March of 2008 our three existing practices officially came together as one company with one name - ProEx Physical Therapy. Since the name change, we've opened five new clinics, located in Haverhill, MA, Springfield, MA, Boston, MA (with a second Boston clinic coming soon), Middleton, MA and Somersworth, NH.

The foundation of our success lies within our people. The trust and shared vision among our partners sets the tone for our entire organization. Today, ProEx employs approximately 180 people in 16 clinics throughout New England. We are privileged to be able to affect the lives of so many patients and hope to continue that for a very long time.
