Reid Kuether, MPT, OCS brings over 17 years of experience to the physical therapy profession. He received his Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Puget Sound after completing his Bachelor of Science degree in Biopsychology at Grand Valley State University in his home state of Michigan. Reid has been a leading provider of physical therapy for the Issaquah community since 1999. In 2011, he received his certification as an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. For over 13 years, he served as the founding therapist and director of Proliance Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation of Issaquah, a division of Proliance Surgeons, in which he successfully managed the growth of the practice from two to twelve providers. He has an outstanding reputation with physicians and providers on the Eastside, as well as a loyal and dedicated patient population that has continued to highly recommend his care.
Reid’s treatment approach starts with a thorough and accurate biomechanical evaluation, necessary to develop a successful rehabilitation plan that works to achieve the goals of each individual patient. Reid believes that as a therapist, his best tools are his hands and he blends varied manual therapy techniques with specific exercise prescription, taping techniques and patient education as a means to provide a multi-dimensional style of care. Reid has also successfully developed the skill of providing custom foot orthotics to the appropriate patient presentation to help augment muscle retraining and biomechanical alignment. To drive best practice models, Reid keeps up to date with current research outcomes, integrating new awareness into his delivery of care. He has collaborated with physicians, surgeons, chiropractors, wellness coaches, fitness centers, sports teams and independent personal trainers within the community to heighten the relationship between those involved in the overall well being of his patients. His background includes treating high-level athletes from the professional and collegiate level to recreational sports participants and those who simply want to improve their day-to-day function. Reid has always strived to maintain a fun and pleasant environment that patients find welcoming and enjoyable. It is his clinical goal to provide valuable and attuned service at each visit to ensure patient compliance and superior outcomes.
Outside of the clinic, Reid is fueled by hiking in the mountains, weightlifting, music, traveling, learning more about the wine industry and connecting with friends and family.
