Physical Therapy Services of RI was founded by Michael and Donna Noonan in 1989. Michael worked solo for the first few months. He served as receptionist, scheduler, accounts receivable agent, and most importantly, physical therapist. Donna assisted by laundering the pillowcases and towels and cleaning the office, usually with 3 preschoolers in tow. Yes, it was definitely a family endeavor! Eventually, we added another physical therapist and office manager to the team. PTSRI worked out of a small rent office for 12 years before moving just down the street to our own facility, which is our present location at 300 Tower Hill Road in North Kingstown. In 1995, a second office was opened in the South Kingstown Office Park in Wakefield, RI. PTSRI has become a longstanding and trusted friend and neighbor in the community. From sponsoring local soccer teams to treating entire families over the years, from toddlers to grandparents, PTSRI has been there, providing quality physical and occupational therapy services to North and South Kingstown residents and the surrounding communities since 1989. Our location and staff may have changed over time, but our philosophy has not. We continue to provide holistic hands-on therapy. We are 100% therapist owned.
Since 1989, Physical Therapy Services of RI has been dedicated to providing the highest level of hands-on physical and occupational therapy to South County and the surrounding Rhode Island areas. Our goal is not to just treat a diagnosis, but to work with the whole person. We believe our patients play a vital role in achieving optimal health, successful rehabilitation, and wellness. Our team provides not only therapeutic modalities and procedures, but also patient education. We also strive to establish patient independence in a home exercise program and a healthier lifestyle following discharge. Patients are considered an intricate part of the team here at PTSRI.
