What do you love most about Minnesota – I've lived in this state my entire life and what tops my list are the people, MN summers and trips up North to cabins.
The one thing that I want people to know about PRO Therapy – PRO Therapy was started to be able to help as many people as I (we) could make better decisions about their health. Healthcare can be a complex, confusing and many times scary world. We opened this private practice to be able to create an environment for people where they felt comfortable, empowered and able to tell their story.

Following graduation, Dr. Schacht earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from South College in Knoxville, TN.
