Tresemer Physical Therapy intends to transfer the assets of its business to Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy in early July of this year. Ray Tresemer opened this physical therapy clinic in February of 2007 and provided top-notch physical therapy care for the Centerville community for the past 11 years.

This year marks Ray’s 40th year working as a physical therapist. Ray and his wife Patty knew they wanted to start spending more time with their family and more time at Lake Rathbun, so they started looking into succession plans for the business. Patty started searching online and came across Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy.

“Through pure luck, or maybe divine intervention, we made contact with an extremely dynamic and professionally admired company by the name of Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy,” said Ray.

Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy, formerly Work Systems Rehab & Fitness, opened in 1998 in Pella, Iowa. Their corporate office is still based out of Pella, with four additional clinic locations throughout central Iowa as well. In March of 2015, the company rebranded to Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy. Since then, they’ve experienced unapparelled growth as a company.

Their recent success increased their interest in finding new markets to serve. This interest in growth, however, is not simply to add pins to the map. They desire to influence people and communities with their mission to transform lives and restore hope through movement.

“Their clinical excellence and corporate mission mirror what I always strived for,” shared Ray.

So when Ray reached out to CEO and Physical Therapist Troy Vander Molen of Kinetic Edge, it quickly became apparent that an acquisition would provide a winning solution for everyone involved – Ray, his team, the Centerville community and surrounding areas, and Kinetic Edge. Kinetic Edge is also thrilled to retain the entire current staff of Tresemer PT.

“Jodeann Cooley, PTA, Marcy Jones, PTA, LMT, and Office Assistant Beth Shilling will continue to serve clients with the same professionalism and personal care that you’ve come to expect,” said Vander Molen. “We’re also excited that Ray will continue to serve clients on a part-time basis, even after the transaction is complete, which is expected to occur on July 2, 2018.”

In the near future, Centerville area residents with pain and limited mobility will continue to receive the same physical therapy care they’ve come to expect from Tresemer PT. In addition, Kinetic Edge’s experience and expertise in work injury prevention and management will benefit local employers and their employees. Kinetic Edge also expects to add athletic training services to help local student-athletes compete at their best. In the future, they foresee moving to a larger facility to help support the growth potential in the Appanoose County market.

Kinetic Edge currently has clinics in Pella, Des Moines, Oskaloosa, Newton, and Ames and consults throughout the state of Iowa and beyond. Their services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, worker performance, athletic training, pediatric therapy, and medical fitness. For more information, please visit
