On the Mend Physical Therapy was started in 2006 by Dr. Katrina Herron, PT, DPT, CLT. After witnessing her grandmother receive less than acceptable care from a local home health company, Katrina recognized a great need for quality physical therapy services in the community and knew she could help. The company began with Katrina providing services through contracts with local home health agencies.
In 2007, the first On the Mend Physical Therapy clinic opened in Mesa. The company experienced rapid growth from 2007 to 2010 due to high-level service offerings. Katrina’s husband, Chuck Herron, left his regular full-time job in 2010 to work for On the Mend Physical Therapy full-time. This allowed the company to continue to expand, adding a second clinic in 2013.
In 2013, Cathy Best, OT, started with the company as a staff clinician. She gradually began to take on additional leadership duties over the next five years; and, in 2018 became a partner. Since 2006, On the Mend Physical Therapy has served people in the community by providing excellent quality, results-driven care for the absolute best outcomes.
