Physical Therapy

At Skyline Health Physical Therapy, patients receive the highest quality of comprehensive care and are usually able to be seen directly by a physical therapist without a physician referral. We specialized in care for post surgical needs and orthopedic or musculoskeletal injuries, and therapists have advanced training in the following areas:

Hand Therapy

Balance Difficulty and Decreasing Risk of Falls
Post Concussion Care

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Aquatic Therapy

In addition to our outpatient clinic, our physical therapy team plays an integral role as members of the Inpatient Transitional Care Program.


Occupational Therapy

The occupational therapists at Skyline Health help patients recover and increase independence with the daily tasks that define our lives. Many people have difficulty completing everyday tasks following an injury, surgery, or disability. Our occupational therapy program is client-centered and geared towards helping patients become more proficient in the aspects of life that are most important to them. Therapeutic interventions may include basic self-care skills, strengthening, education for use of adaptive tools/strategies, and independent living skills such as home maintenance, meal preparation, and medication management.

Primarily found in our inpatient Transitional Care Program, our occupational therapists are an integral part of the team working to get patients safely and successfully back home.


Speech Therapy

Speech Language Pathologists are also known as speech therapists. We aim to improve well-being and independence by assessing and treating difficulties with speech, language, thinking, reading, writing and swallowing after injury or illness. We often work in a team with doctors, social workers, physical therapists and occupational therapists to provide the most comprehensive care.

Common Areas Treated by Speech Language Pathologists

Cognition: Problems with attention, organizing thoughts, planning, remembering and solving problems.

Speech: Symptoms could be slurring, difficulty producing a voice or making clear speech sounds.

Language: Areas of difficulty could be understanding others, expressing your own thoughts and feelings, reading, writing, and using money and time.

Swallowing: Symptoms could be feeling like something is stuck or coughing and choking when eating.

What To Expect

We listen to your concerns. Then we identify areas of difficulty through testing your speech, swallowing, language and thinking skills. Together we’ll make a treatment plan to address your goals. This may include memory strategies, calendars, checklists, communication boards, breathing or mindfulness exercises.
