First Settlement Physical Therapy (FSPT) is a family-owned private practice that strives to treat its employees and patients as part of our family. We have been in business for 20 years and have grown into 21 clinics throughout West Virginia and Ohio.


FSPT’s first clinic was founded in Marietta, OH in 1999. The company name originated from Marietta being the Northwest Territory’s first settlement so we thought First Settlement Physical Therapy would be quite fitting.


FSPT is owned by Hema Hargus. Her husband, Phil Hargus; her son, Simon Hargus; and her daughter in-law, Lisa Hargus, along with an extremely well-trained staff, help run FSPT and make it WV and OH’s most trusted physical therapy provider.


From strokes to balance issues to post op care to sports injuries, we can see any type of patient that requires physical therapy! We offer hour long, one on one appointments with every patient. We accept all insurances. There is no waiting list! No matter where your doctor works, you can choose the best, so choose First Settlement Physical Therapy!
