Crissy Laubach

Within 15 minutes with Kate, I had a diagnosis and was on my way to recovery. She was thorough, understanding, reassuring, and open to questions. She always told me what to expect with my knee, so that I was fully prepared and knew exactly what to do. My knee has gained strength and we are now working on endurance, but most importantly, I no longer have pain and have my quality of life back.

Erin G

Kate Skinner has helped me immensely! I feel better, I'm stronger and I can take care of my body much better now. A surgeon suggested an operation, but Kate has helped me avoid that option.

Anne Crisp

Kate gave me my life back and we are so thankful for everything she has done. I wish I would have found her sooner. I could have prevented my bowel blockage surgery if I would have got to her sooner. The whole staff is wonderful.

Leslie Sims

Great Divide was my third attempt at physical therapy for my back, I feel I am finally on the road to recovery with my back! Kate Skinner and all the staff are awesome! Kate has been my answer to prayer
